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.

 Do your dogs ever point their front paw? like hunting dogs?

My husky has started pointing all the time, frequently in the direction of another dogs urine, I think.

Just made me curious, do a lot of huskies do this?

I've had Buddy for about 2.5 months, and he only just started this in the last 1-2 weeks, but now he does it all the time. I have two theories.

1. He's a weirdo.
2. More point-worthy smells with the change of seasons.

Might be a bit of both...

Anyway, just curious if anyone elses dogs do this.

My girl lifts her foot when she's stalking things (birds, squirrels, socks), but I think it's more of a "freeze so I won't be seen" instinct rather than an actual pointing thing. :B

I think it's really cute that your dog stalks socks.

Our pup Loki does this in the backyard when he's hunting bugs in the grass!! It's real funny to watch.

Hi intangible, your puppy is adorable. I see you're in Chilliwack, I actually have family & some friends there, have visited on numerous occasions.

My guy seems to do it when he smells something, but doesn't point for squirrels or birds (prefers to just run wildly in any direction).

Nope, mine never has and probably never will.
