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 everyone,
                    Just thought I'd introduce myself. After months of research we brought our baby home just before Christmas, he is 9 weeks and called Toby.
Toby is our 1st husky (well, officially he is my 15 year old daughter's, but seems to have latched on to me)
I spend hours reading your posts before he moved in. It has really paid off, he is brilliant, so well behaved, he seems very confident so he does test the waters on a daily basis, but we started positive reinforcement from day 1.
Our family set up is :- Myself, Husband, 2 sons, aged 22 & 16 and as mentioned 15 year old daughter. we also have 2 cats, aged 5 & 9.
I thought I had effectively ''Trained'' my 2 son's before Toby arrived. However it seems this may be an ongoing project and positive reinforcement with the lads is much more expensive than with Toby. Toby seems to think my son's are his litter mates, and treats them accordingly.
Myself and Husband both grew up with dogs, we know quite a bit but are by no means experts, we do know how to find out the things we need to know, so we aren't out on a limb.
The only worry I have at the moment is, ''The amount I worry'' about Toby.
It really is getting ridiculous, I lose sleep worrying. 'Is he happy ?' 'Is he eating enough ?'
'Is he eating too much ?' 'Is he getting enough exercise ?' 'Is he getting too much exercise ?' (you get the picture).
I know the answer to every question (thanks to most of you) and know I'm doing things right and how to get over the odd blip.
My occupation is a Midwife and see this behaviour in 1st time mum's all the time, but i do think I have '1st Husky Syndrome'. Did anyone else feel like this ?, or am I just a crazy dog lady ?
Here's a pic of our precious little baby !

There's a sticky on How to Upload Pictures. Hopefully it helps. Would love to see pictures of your little guy. Welcome to the forum.
