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.

We are become first time dog owners of a 6 week old Husky next weekend.  My kids are soooo excited!

What kind of dog food should we be feeding him?

Also if anyone has any good suggestions on what to name him, I would appreciate the input.  Getting 5 people to agree on a name is impossible, lol.  Our puppy is a male, and we want a name that is different.

Nice to "meet" you all,
Sandra

First. 6 weeks is to you to bring him home. Should be after 8 weeks. The puppy learns a lot of important things from mother in that 2 week period. If you can push it back to 8 weeks i would suggest you try that.

As for food, what is he currently being feed?
A website a lot of us love on here is dogfoodadvisor. Anything in the 4-5 star range is usually what is aimed for. A lot of us all feed grain free kibble. And some even do a raw diet.

We had a hard time with Kodiak with his food. He had diarrhea real bad no matter what we fed him until we found Taste Of The Wild in the orange bag. Good Luck.

I would suggest continuing with whatever the breeder has him on and then slowly shift him to a high-quality food (if the food the breeder feeds is not adequate). I also agree that 6 weeks is too young. 8-9 weeks is good. My pup stayed with her litter until she was 12 weeks old. It makes a huge difference in the pups socialization and behavior.
