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.

Greetings!
The name is Matt and I hail from the grand ole (and a bit boring) state of Pennsylvania.  I am 24 years old. Served 5 years in the Marines and now a student at Penn State University studying for a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management.  I just picked up my very first Sibe! He is a wonderfully playful little pup! Everyone say hello to Spartacus!

Welcome! Nice to see a fellow service member join, I'm active Navy Smile

You should post pictures of Spartacus when you get a chance. Also, and I know it's a little bit of a drive, but I run an H2M2 (Husky Huddle and Malamute Mingle) in Maryland. Our August meet up is actually going to be in Frederick, which isn't terribly far for you if you'd like to come. I need to post the details on here, but we also have a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/190452957669203/

Semper Fi!

I actually live in Southern Lancaster about 5 minutes from the mason-dixon line. So really not all that far from me. During the school year which starts at the end of august it will be a bit of a drive. I would love to come to one of the meet ups, of course after Sparty has all his vaccines:)

Yep, but the puppy phase goes by so quickly. Unfortunately he won't be done with his shots by the August meet up, but potentially by the September. I rotate them around the state, and I think as the weather cools down we're going to do some other things like hikes. Can't wait to meet you guys, Spartacus is just beyond cute.

Thank ya thank ya, Yeah hikes definitely sound like fun. As soon as Spartacus can handle it we're gonna hike Mt. Nittany up at school. A nice 5 mile trail. I'm sure he will do better then I will! Looking forward to some possible meet ups!

Nice, that sounds like fun. We might have to make the trek up there from Annapolis for that one Wink

Do be careful pushing him to do stuff like that, for general walks a good rule of thumb is 5 minutes per month of age. For hikes you can probably get away with a little more, but definitely play that one slow and ease him into it. Otherwise you risk damaging his growing joints.

That would be correct Smile

Unstructured running around yards and dog parks is ok, structured stuff is what does the real damage.

Thanks for the tip then! I have risen a husky before so I would like to think I know what I'm doing but I can see I am going to delve in the vaults of this forum and gain even more knowledge for Spartacus's sake!
