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.

Hi, I have an 8 month old Siberian Husky named Sascha, who actually owns me Very Happy. She's an amazing dog!!! When I first got her 6 months ago, she would eat her food so quickly. I had to buy her a special bowl to slow her down. When she turned 7 months old, I noticed that her eating habits starting to change. Now it takes her anywhere between a half hour to 12 hours to finish a meal. Has anyone else experienced this? She still finishes her meals, just takes her a bit longer. Appreciate any feedback..

Huskies have marvelous metabolisms as I am sure you will know. Just keep a close eye on her weight, and as long as she isn't losing, She will be fine. She may just not be hungry because she isn't burning the calories as quickly at the moment.

I've learnt from experience with this. My Keyto is a grazer and eats probably about as much as a good sized cat. She doesn't gain and does not loose. Just be prepared to offer more when she still appears hungry if need be. Keyto eats a wee bit more when it gets cold, and if I have given her a lot of exercise. She stays around 16.5kg constantly.

I have a joke with her, (and the people around) that she is 'all too concerned with staying in her size 10 Jeans.' (Size ten is pretty small here in NZ)

Thank you so much for your response. Makes me feel a little better. She's a good 51.7 pounds right now so I'm pretty sure that she's ok. The standing joke in our house is that my boyfriend didn't want a dog over 50 pounds so she's just living up to her end of the deal and trying to stay at 50lbs, lol
