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! I have a 7 month old Siberian Husky named Loki. He is the first Siberian Husky I have ever owned. In fact, he is the first dog I have ever owned; the rest have all been family dogs. As such, I have a million questions, so please be patient with me!

Here he is enjoying a car ride:

Welcome to the forum.  Handsome boy!

Curmudgeon warning:  You might want to put a harness and tether to seatbelt or child seat anchors - puppies and dogs have been known to escape from cars with doors opening, climb into driver's lap etc while driving.  

Also - my dog thoroughly gouged the vinyl door panels...

Mine have been hard on my door panels but a car ride just wouldn't be the same if they couldn't stick their head out the window.

Welcome to the forum!

That is a really good idea, Amy, do you know where I can purchase something like that? Some people here in Kansas City haul their doggies around in the back of their pickups. I think I would have a minor stroke if my fiance did that to him, though lol!

Jenn, I know how you feel! And it's so funny watching his ears fly back and his eyes get wide!

He hasn't had much of a problem with door panels. I leave one of his ropes and a deer antler in the back and he chews on those when he gets bored.

...I said ONE of his ropes but he might actually have 10 toys in the back, haha! Slightly spoiled.

I use a Kurgo car harness which comes with a tether - it was too short for Ami used with the car seat anchors on theback of the seat so I picked up and additional tether at walmart. I do not believe this set up is adequate for any serious car crash but from my searches, not much is without paying a fortune or crating the dog in the car. Not an option with a 72 pound dog and a subaru - we tried so I know it won't work lol!

I'll be honest, when I read Loki was possibly underweight I was like "whuuuuuuttt" lol, no, he doesn't look fat...but the weight you gave and your avatar pic just doesn't look or sound like a underweight husky. Kohdi has a longer coat as well so I do know how that can hide if he's underweight ...but no, Loki doesnt look underweight at all (but I'm not a vet, haha)

Haha, that's ok thank you for the input. I think he looks healthy, just a tad skinny. He loves running around and seems to be otherwise healthy and happy.
