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.

Hi,

Greetings from South Africa.
Me and my wife got ourselves 2 Husky puppies in October last year.
We've enjoyed them alot and it's great having them around.

They are just past 6 months old now.

I've managed to learn them a few stuff like to wait to start eating food until I say so, and I've managed to make them sit and lie down. However, I know there's alot more to learn them and we are planning on taking them to a professional trainer when winter starts. I am a runner so I would like to learn them to come and take a jog with me when they are a bit older.

Here's some pics the day we received them. I have some more recent photos of them but will post it later on.
Codi is the black one and Maxi the lighter one

Welcome! Codi and Maxi are adorable! Good luck with the training, you'll be amazed at what they are capable of.

Welcome, are they litter mates then? are you waiting on training because of the heat? you can always start on little things.
on a side note where does one find sibs in south africa?

Yes they are litter mates. Both male. Are there a reason why you ask?
Our vet just frowned and said it's not a good idea while others don't see it as a problem. I've done a test and seperate them to do some training on each on it's own, but they don't like it, they keep on looking for the other one and they can't concentrate, so up to now I've trained them together.

About the heat, yes. I asked someone else who also have huskies about training and they suggested that they get trained in the colder months.

We got our sibes from a breeder. One can also rescue them.

That is why some get nervous about litter mates. Often they'll be very difficult to work with if separated, but its best if you do separate them for training and what not.

We had/have someone else on there asking about litter mates and them bonding or something i never heard about, from the sound of it, it is good to keep them apart and such for training. make sure to do some training even if its just a little bit early and late when it might be cooler out, you don't want them to go from nothing to heavy training when it cools down. cant wait to watch them grow!
