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.

Siberians are not large breeds. You can switch to adult food for Siberian around a year. If you truly have a large breed, I believe the package says 2 years on puppy but I'm not sure about that.

The biggest difference in puppy food vs standard adult food is the calories. The large breed puppy food has less calories than a standard puppy food to help slow the growth down of the dog so they develop correctly so it usually can be feed for up to 2 years depending on the dog. With Huskies they usually don't need large breed specific food unless you have a reliable weight of their parents and they are both over 70ish. How old is your Sib and how much does he/she weight right now? Also, do you know the weight of the parents by chance?
