Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hello, I just wanted to introduce myself and my wife. My name is Alex and my Wife's name is Samantha. We are from Topeka Kansas and just adopted a 10 week old husky. We named him Jethro. My wife has a thread about our training. Feel free to give us any advice, as this is our first dog. This is the link to the blog.

I love this site, already have learned so much about this beautiful dog.

That sounds like a lot of fun. How old are your huskies? Any advice on potty training? Do you do sledding only in winter?

Im sorry, I didn't really mean a "sled team" we just say that because of all the huskies that we have around here that are friends lol I guess I should say we can always use one more in our pack! After all we do live in Kansas we can't predict this weather haha. Oakley is 1 years old and Timber is 1 1/2-3 years old, we just rescued him about a month ago. With the potty training its going to take some time but eventually will work out. Try not to stress out to much he is just baby after all. With Oakley we took him out twin in one hour, If he potty outside he got a treat and we would praise him. Now if he accidentally went inside we wouldn't yell at him we just firmly said NO OUTSIDE! We did not let him see us clean up his mess because we don't want him to think oh I can potty there and they will clean it up. We have learn when Oakley needs to out, he would always start pacing around the house like he was on a mission and that's when he had to go potty. Now he just goes straight to the door when he wants out. Take him out before feeding time and about 30 min after feeding time. Is he crate train? if so does he potty in the crate?

I was surprised when you said sled team in Kansas, I was like:shock: . There is a sweet dog park in Topeka, if you ever come up you should let me know and we can meet up at the park. I haven't introduced him to any dogs yet.

I will let you know if we do! I would start introducing to other dogs. The sooner the better. Even just a family friend dog. I would understand if you don't want to take him to the park right away since hes still little and a baby and there is always those one dogs that just roll them around. lol
