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.

Secret Santa is an ongoing tradition here on IAHT.com and I'm happy to run it again this yr.

We have one main rule, to prevent sad huskies on Christmas morning from people who bailed without telling me you can only be a part of SS if you have over 100 post (same rule for HOTM), I'm really sorry if this excludes you this year, but we have had some flakes in the past that have ruined my trusting nature. You have till Nov. 20th to reach that #.

Here is the info if you want to partake in the holiday fun:)

Please PM me your name, address and dog/s names by NOV 18th!!!!! and I will get back to everyone by the 22th or sooner.

I am suggesting a $25 minimum for the family (not per dog, but if you want, you are free to go over, please don't go under or count shipping into the $25) remember it's all for fun and spoiling the dogs.

Once I have all the names I will then PM you who you will be gifting to, remember it's a secret so no giving out clues, OR asking other members who they have
You don't have to celebrate Christmas to partake in the fun either, its open to everyone, I can note in the PM to the person that gets you to stay away from x-mas themed stuff if that's what you want.

All the gifts should be sent in the mail by Dec 7, that gives it 2.5 weeks to show up, if you will be out of town or are in another country please just LET ME KNOW so the person who does receive you will adjust the shipping date so you receive it in time. You can put your name on the return address, or not, if you don't please add your name to the inside package so the receiver knows who sent it and can thank you. If you have an issue with shipping to another country please let me know a head of time.

It would be great if everyone could take pictures or video of your dog/s opening their gifts to share with everyone! We can post them in a new SS Reveal thread AFTER Christmas, that way we keep the secret. It would be nice to post on here that you did receive your gift (no name of sender) so the sender knows it showed up.

Ok on to the fun, please post in this thread what your dog/s like/dislikes are so that whomever receives your pups will have an idea of what gifts to pick up.
Treats, collars, wearable things, toys, whatever they love most, include sizes for collars and such.

When you receive the name of who you are shopping for come back to this thread and find the post about what they like to help with the shopping!

This will be a TON of fun and I hope you all have a great time shopping and wrapping and letting the dog/s do the opening!!!
I have found the best deals on Black Friday, I hear Amazon is also a great place to shop, or support your local pet store.

let me know if you have any questions!

Oh yay! We love Secret Santa!

Mishka is a foodie. He loves all natural treats/chews.
We prefer grain free and NOT made in China.
He loves plushie toys with squeakers.
We also love themed collars, bandanas, scarves, etc. His neck is 16-18".

No rawhides either, please.

If I can think of something else I'll come edit this!

This was so much fun a few years ago when we did it before.

Simon is super picky and I never know what he will like and then Sadie will eat just about anything and loves toys.
I like giving my dogs mostly made in US treats Or local made treats if you are outside the US.

We're in this year too!

Lycus loves just about anything that squeaks or is edible. So anything will be good for him! We just ask for no treats from China.

Bourbon Vlad Colleen and Baylin too want in!!!
Natural treats, love the water buffalo horns and chew items best.
Snacks and bullies, dehydrated items are super special.
Dispenser toys are good too.
They like fluffies most of the time.
Bandanas or bow ties would make them do handsome too.
Baylin eats anything LMAO
