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.

Hello fellow husky owners Smile

My name is Pascal, and i have a lovely female husky named sky. (4 months old atm)
I have had a couple of dogs throughout my life, and worked as a volluntair to temporarly house resqued dogs from the streets in greece and spain.
This husky however is my first husky!
So together we learn alot every new day Very Happy
i do notice that she can be quite stubborn, (as expected) so the training seems to take a bit more then with the average dog.
i am a pretty patient guy thankfully haha.
and i found a tip on some other forum about only feeding my dog outside as rewards during the training walks on the leash ect.
this works pretty good and we are both finding our way with these methods.
she is only with me for 3 weeks now and is potty trained, and on the leash its eehh, lets say it depends on how bad she wants her dogfood at the moment haha.
Also we are trying to find out how long we can walk each day for her to be satisfied with the exercise for now.

but overall i like her alot, she is challenging me in alot of ways, and i always like a challenge Very Happy

well thats some info about us, ill be lurking around the forum a bit for some helpfull info, and perhaps post something here and there Smile


Thanks for having us here ! Smile


Pascal, and Sky.

We usually go by the rule of 5 minutes of walking per month of age at a time. So at 4 months she could do 20 minutes of walking at a time, but you could do this multiple times a day. Puppies seem like they can go forever and can walk for hours it can feel like, but for their safety to protect growing joints doing short jaunts more often is best, especially if you are walking on sidewalks or hard surfaces that are more jarring. Open play, like fetch and bounding around the backyard where they can set their own pace is as much as they want.

Welcome to the forum!
