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.

Yup, that is big for a husky. Mine was 59 pounds when we adopted him at 12 ish months. 10 mos. later he was 63 pounds. Another 10 mos. later at just about about 2.5 years old, he was 73 ish pounds. About 24-" at the withers. He's big - I like it, I can scratch his ears and stroke his fur without having to bend over - makes it easier to train not to jump on people lol!

I personally did sit and stay, or you can use down and stay. Be firm and reward. If he moves and tries to jump, do a uh uh and another sit and stay. Consistency is key. Welcome to the forum and Rowen is a very handsome guy.

I've slowly been eradicating jumping up from my son's pup. What he wants is to be noticed and attended to, so when he approaches me, I make him sit. If he sits, I lean over and scratch his ears, rub him, make a fuss over him etc. If he doesn't sit, I turn my back and don't acknowledge him. He's getting the message...though you wouldn't know it from the pile of muddy paw tee shirts I have to launder
