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.

I never knew how much owning a husky/malamut would change my life...she is a real challenge compared to my two labs but she is soooo smart and entertaining..training her is a never ending quest to educate myself and try things out and accept to fail miserably at times..she is eating a bit more but I need to add game meat or fresh fish to her kibble...we are working on getting in the jeep which is crucial (using lots of chicken to convince her these days!) and there is a little ressource guarding issue with other dogs that we need to improve but otherwise she is enjoying her new environment

next step....meeting my two youngest children who are coming up north for the summer...they are 8 and 11...they love dogs and I want to make sure everything goes well...

They are indeed NOT a Lab and they are a challenge - and as you're finding out, they are a real joy to work with. You have my sympathy with the resource guarding, I *must* feed mine separately because when it comes to food - it all belongs to Sasha!!

Considering the Husky heritage (and I think Malamute as well) I think you'll find that she'll adopt your children - readily. Even my Sibe who isn't a people 'person' seems to enjoy hugs from little people.
I was visiting a friend who works in a crisis center and had Sasha with me when this fellow walks in with a 4? year old; she immediately yells "wolf" (oh my god!) and runs up to give Sasha a big hug around her neck (while I'm trying to get the leash down to infinitely small so I can restrain her and get her out of there) and Sasha starts licking like there's no tomorrow!!

Huskies have been the breed that has made me work the hardest of all the breeds I have had in the past, but they have also been the most fun to own and make a part of my life. When you are willing to do what it takes to have balance with these dogs instead of trying to force them to be a breed they weren't meant to be the rewards are wonderful.

I have to say, Zhukov is the most interesting dog I have ever had share my life.  The energy, joy, and mischievousness he shows is just amazing.  And smart?  WOW!  I swear sometimes I think he might be plotting on me...


I mean look at that face!  That is a "Oh boy... just wait till I get that camera strap in my mouth..." look if I ever saw one!

I have to chime in here and talk about my dear Mylo boy.

I never knew that I would own a dog ever. I was never really cared much about pets really...but this furry one came along and I ended up falling for him fast. Even my parents were surprised.
As a young puppy he pushed me to make critical decisions in tough situations and really made me grow up in a way I suppose. Got me closer to my girlfriend, he is the thing we both pour our hearts in to which is something we didn't have before. Some don't know how I can manage a husky, but I explain that this is a breed you reeally have to adapt to or else. I had an idea of what I was getting in to upon getting this boy. It's been wonderful.

While I believe Mylo is a little different from the typical husky I read of and see here (small size and calm personality)...he can be extremely chill, he does amazingly great left alone when needed.
And sometimes I think he is smarter than we all give him credit for lol

In conclusion, now after having Mylo.. I know I want dogs (huskies) in my life forever!! Very Happy

I really get what you are saying. With my Mini-Schnauzer, I feel like he completely adapted to me. However with my Husky, it was a little bit of him adapting to me and me adapting to him. I have never seen a breed like them. The personality thing is completely off the charts.
