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.

I was reading a article that said huskies act the worst between 12-18 months. I thought though it was more 6-12 months or 6-18. Just curious what others think so I can be prepared if he is going to start acting up a lot in a few months.

Just make sure they get the proper amount of exercise, that's the only cure for high energy Levels. I definitely notice the difference on days on I run/hike and take her to the dog park, rather then days I don't exercise her. I tired pup is the best pup. Arya becomes really destructive on days with no exercise, has destroyed dry wall, and the door to my bedroom, even managed to pull the zipper off my snowboard jacket. But I wouldn't trade her for anything.

I noticed Lycus was at his worst from about 8 months up until he was almost 2. He's definitely a lot calmer now.

I remember reading that generally their rebellious phase was from around 8-18 months, of course I don't have any personal experience to back up these claims.

Right now. Lol. We bike, we walk 3 miles (not always on the same day), we play games, etc. Nothing curbs him. He constantly wants attention and everything. We just went biking for about 20 minutes and he's still bugging me. I'll take him again and then for a walk. Tomorrow we are going to try the dog park and see if that works.

Once spring hits and vet gives all clear he is good to run we plan to replace his walks with running and biking. Also in the yard I will add back frisbee to his current playing with my other dog and fetch. Hopefully that helps keep him manageable as he gets older. Otherwise we will probably enroll him in daycare too 1-2 days per week.
