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.

Hello everyone from Iowa!

I have been on this forum for a few weeks now and have been doing a fair amount of reading miscellaneous threads as I am getting a husky puppy in May.  I have been around dogs a lot the past few years and am looking forward to the challenge (I am aware of what comes with a husky) that it entails.  That being said I am preparing my house and yard for a mischievous husky as well as planning things to do with him to help meet his physical needs such as exercise and mental stimulation.

On an aside note, I have read that running on sidewalks and bikjoring (both activities I want to do with my little guy eventually) are best done after a year old.  Is this true?

Yep, it's definitely true. While their bones are growing, it can be risky running on concrete.

Welcome to the forum. Bikejoring is fun, but so is having a puppy. don't wish him to grow up too fast.

I went to ISU, so I spent a lot of time in Ames. Never been to the Ames dog park, though.
