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!

PostSubject: When did your Husky Calm Down?   Sat Aug 15, 2015 10:22 pm

Hi All Smile
I've been awol for a while now so I hope you are all well.
I was just wondering when your huskies calmed down age wise?
I was always told by Orion's breeder that they come into themselves at about 5 or so. Thing is Orion is only 2.5years and in the last 6 months he has just really chilled it is kind of weird. He is really calm, very very quiet (he will go days without making a sound) and just kind of isn't as goofy if that makes sense. He used to be so bouncy and silly and even sleeping he was always upside down or twisted round but now he is kind of somber. Don't get me wrong it is wonderful to be able to take him places and he is so nonplussed about everything but I just wasn't expecting this level of decorum from him at this age. I still do a lot of things with him training wise and I use play a lot as a reward especially in the likes of agility, he still loves training and enthusiastically plays games with me, he interacts brilliantly with other dogs with lots of energy etc it is just in his down time at home that he has quietened down. It sounds weird but I miss the zoomies and manic naughtiness lol
Should I be worried he has changed so much or should I just count my blessings?

Count your blessings lol! I have had periods of time where I've thought the same thing about Ami...then comes a night like last night where I had a woo-wooing, bouncing, playbowing boy at the foot of my bed. At 4 AM affraid

I suspect your training is really paying off and is giving him lots of stimulation, physically as well as mentally and he has no need to discharge. Just my thoughts...

I used to think it was age 2 that huskies calm down more, until my last boy Malukhai came along, don't get me wrong, he was probably the most behaved husky I've ever had, however he seemed to remain in "puppy mode" til he hit the age of 5, unfortunately he passed away then too, but I noticed (he lived to age 5 1/2) that he all of a sudden grew up, even in his appearance, right at the age of 5. Anuschka, the same thing, at age 5 is when I got her Malukhai and although she still played and all that stuff, she kinda matured into a little mother for Malukhai, instincts leading her way too.

With my current two, Kohdi is 2 1/2 now, he has always been a chill husky, almost too laid back, lol, and he has seemed to grown up already, but the slightest thing can kick that "puppy mode" into high gear so I don't think he's there yet. To be perfectly honest, I don't want him there yet. They both can and do frustrate me sometimes, but they're also the sweetest most lovable dogs ever, I like that combination. Their life is too short as it is to be an "adult" the entire time.
