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.

Having a husky in 'mud season' is not fun to deal with sometimes. Running through mud is bad enough, but give a husky water of any sort and he will get right in!



Alternative measures have been enacted to keep him more dry, and just as cool while still being able to exercise....which involves his favorite thing.... SNOW. Resorts are closed, but he can still find lots of man-made snow to play on to get us through mud season!

I have my share of mud up here. It becomes a major management issue - dogs, floors, lawn...laundry. Did I say laundry? and more laundry? Takes a lot of towels to cope with a muddy wooly - and yours looks to be as wooly as Ami!

For some reason... I have been lucky with mud I guess?
Every time we go anywhere during mud season... Okami plops herself right in the mud puddles. Identical to your boy in the top picture lol.
However.. I do towel her off before we get into the car, but that doesn't really help matters.. the only thing that helps me is that I have a waterproof car seat cover in the back so she doesn't get the car all messy. By the time the day is over though, she never looks like she took a step in the mud, it all just dries up and falls off.. I never have had to give her a bath or wash her off... I don't get it. She doesn't excessively lick her self or clean her self, and the mud is always literally no where to be found. It's like it just vanishes! I am not complaining though lol.

Exactly lol! I call him the magical self-cleaning genie.

Now, if only the floors were so...that's where the laundry comes in. Ami won't stand still to have his paws dried off - and when I tried to teach him to step into a bucket water, well, that's another story So, temporarily, it's towels all over the laundry room floor and having him walk back and forth until he no longer leaves footprints...

He kept acting like he was supposed to drink it... every time I would lift a paw and try to put it in the pail,, he would look at me as of I had lost my marbles. I could almost hear him..."what is the matter with you woman?!!?"

It was seriously the funniest expression I've ever seen on his face. I'm guessing my laughing fit didn't help matters lol!

My backyard turns into an absolute mud pit every time it rains. We seriously have an enormous (unintended) pond in our yard right now. If I can figure out how to post pics I will show you. My biggest life saver has been this rug called the dirty dog door mat. I bought it on Amazon and I swear my dogs only have to sit on it for 5 seconds and it sucks all the moisture and mud out of their paws. We also use it to step on when we are wet and muddy from taking them in and out. It is the best. I have zero carpet downstairs (husky hair, your know) but when it would rain my entire downstairs would be covered in paw prints, and this as completely solved the problem. I swear I love it.
