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.

All Temperature Cheer on the gentle cycle, sorry, my wife loves me and my warped sense of humor.
Many good show shampoo's out there, try a search in the showing part of the forum and I think many are listed. As for the paws, handle them as often as you can, reward calm behavior with treats and/or praise.

This thread mentioned a few different types of whitening shampoos you could try.

We use Rosie B. Good Brighter Than White Cloud shampoo, then follow up with the Rosie B. Good Smoother Than Velvet Vanilla conditioner.

My dog is a therapy dog, so gets bathed about once a week. Rosie B. Good has been wonderful because it's very gentle on her skin-a lot of shampoos, especially whitening ones, are too harsh. Rosie B. good is paraben and sulfate free, and make her white and bright and soft.

You can get it on Amazon.

As for paws, take it slow. Give your dog a good none or Kong, and while she's chewing, rub one foot. Keep touching her feet a little more each day. Then pick up the foot, and just touch the nails. After a few days of that, give her a bone and try quietly cutting just one nail. And so on.

My dog used to be terrified, but now we give her a bone and can trim all of her nails in less than 5 minutes without her budging a muscle. Just work slowly and get her used to her feet being touched.

Have no clue on the shampoo, but I agree with Hughie and anyaluv, Miya keeps her nails short on her own. as a puppy, from the moment we got her, I would rub her paws, tail, arms, etc. I knew huskies could be a challenge, so I wanted her to be used to me touching her, puppy massages if you will. She still loves the massages, but my husband and me are the only ones who can actually touch her paws, people have to HI Five when they ask her to shake, if they don't she screams bloody murder, haha

It's a silly recommendation and not one that is for health...

But I've read that owners of show dogs that are all white use chalk to brighten up the coat.

Real beauty on a husky coat shows from the inside out though. So a good quality kibble or raw and the occasional use of coconut oil during bath time will help a lot.
