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 just got my second husky baby... and for now, we're traveling with two leashes and it's not working very well as you can imagine! With you all being the professionals, I thought you might have the perfect solution.

i do 2 leashes, Jack walks on the left and sierra walks on the right. leash in each hand, sure they sometimes get crossed but not to often. some use the Y split so there is only one leash but my issue with that is jack likes to pee on everything and that was pissing sierra off and he would not stop if she had to pee and it was a wreck so i stopped doing it. oh and good upper body strength to hold them! it takes time for you to get used to it and for them to walk together.

Exasperation..... is the first thing that comes to mind. Just wanted you to be ready for that, others can help you on what your hoping for . When I walk my 2 they trade sides about every 30 seconds.

What's the problem with the two leashes? I walk up to eight on individual leashes and aside from my saint and his husky friend tumbling around, there aren't any issues.

They aren't horrible, but they do get tangled. I'm used to Keimo, so I do pretty well with the pulling. lol... that doesn't mean they haven't pulled me across the yard a few times! Keimo pulled me off of my back porch when he was just a pup... I learned fast!

I can't imagine walking 8 huskies! At least not where I live.... a rabbit would take off, so would they, and I'd be bouncing along behind them! :-)

I walk all of my Huskies together, Seamus goes nutty about motorcycles so he and I walk separately. It's not an issue but I let them pick their positions and then they have to stay in that order unless they go to pee or they're being dumb. Then i'll move them around. Most of the times the girls and Rodeo are in the middle with Mickey and Odin on each end barricading them in lol!

I walk with two leashes and have Ghost on the left, other dog on the right. They swap over sometimes but they're getting the hang of it. I also make sure to sometimes walk each dog separately too. That's because our other dog (not a husky) is very exciteable and we're still training him. It's not really possible to train him when I've got both dogs.
