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.

A LOT! Especially when they are blowing there coats I probably take a brush to them 3 to 4 times a week, and no matter what the hair is still every where. When they aren't blowing their coats, its like once to twice a week just so they don't get matted in anyway. Use a very gentle brush with your puppy because he won't be shedding its just to get him use to being brushed, but definitely start early because its a pain to have a husky that doesn't like to be brushed, trust me!

We've always brushed an average of once every 1-2 weeks. When they blow their coats, they could use a daily brushing, so then it depends on how much time I have. Work and family take up a lot of time, but I do my best, especially if I plan on taking them out in public. Don't want them all clumpy looking for walks, etc. Haha!

We brush Juno daily year round. When she is blowing her coat (as she is right now) then we brush 2-3 times per day or more. We also spend alot of time just pulling loose hair out of her. I don't think you can "over brush" a Husky.
