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.

Introducing new puppy to almost 2 year old Husky Empty
PostSubject: Introducing new puppy to almost 2 year old Husky   Introducing new puppy to almost 2 year old Husky EmptyMon Mar 24, 2014 7:09 pm

We got a new husky (a mixed breed--husky/golden) yesterday. She is only 10 weeks old and is a sweet little thing (and still nameless!). Meika, our husky girl that's almost 2, is infatuated with her. She is constantly on top of her and will not leave her alone and the only peace the puppy gets is when she is in her crate.

I'm wanting to know if the behavior Meika has is normal and if I should deter her at all. Right now she is constantly biting at the new puppy. She puts her entire head, back, legs, basically whatever she can get a hold of, into her mouth. If the puppy runs at all she will pull at her fur which causes her to yelp. The puppy has started to get a bit frustrated and will growl and bark at her which just excites Meika more. Should I try to stop Meika from biting at her? Or is this just normal behavior which will eventually stop? I will say that Meika seems friendly as she is always wagging her tail. The worst part for me is that the puppy is always soaked from Meika's mouth! Otherwise it doesn't seem to hurt her usually, just annoys her at times. She's not free to roam at all so I feel bad for her that Meika is on her at all times when she's not crated and even when she's crated Meika will lie right in front of the crate door and stare at her.
On a good note, at least Meika is leaving the cat alone now.  Laughing
