Congrats. You need to share pix! And yea you need a lot of patience with a puppy. What i tried to do was remind myself this is a puppy only a few weeks old, what would i expect of a human baby at that age. As far as house breaking. The big thing is consistency and paying attention. Key moment to take your puppy out to potty are, right when they wake up, right before you put them to bed, right after they eat, right after or even during play sessions. And take them out every time any of those things happen plus every 45min - hour. Soo you might take them out 12 timea in a day but that will make potty training easier. Also every time you take him out have him sit infront of the door. Eventually he will sit by the door when he has to go. Or you can even do the bell traning, instead of sit. Goodluck!!!

Hello!  We just got our little Husky pup three months ago.  She is now 5 1/2 months old.  We are preparing her for the arrival of our first baby, who is due April 29th.  We heard that Huskies are great with kids.  Can't wait to learn more from experienced Husky owners.  Good to meet you all!

-Courtney

Hi Tori,

Thanks for your message about the rules. This is the first forum I've joined and it's good to know the ground rules. Maneuvering the site is a weep-bit confusing so if I mess something up with posting a topic, I apologize ahead of time. Many thanks!

New here, looking forward to learning all that I can regarding Alaskan Huskies and bikejoring. I have studied and taught using the Iditarod for 5 years now. This love has lead to some AMAZING mushing experiences close to home. A local musher is coming to my classroom tomorrow to interact with my students! I had wanted a husky for some time, then Tal came in to our life. Tal is 4 today Smile He was born at Natures Kennel in McMillan MI. My family and I visited the kennel in Sept. 2012. What an amazing place, people, and huskies!! Saturday, we will be visiting again to get a training partner for Tal Smile My 8 year old jr. musher cannot wait!!! We have been mushing/bikejoring since Dec. when I figured out that Tal needed to RUN every day, not just "run" in our 1/2 acre fenced in yard. Since that fateful Smile day, Tal has not destroyed things as he had before Smile )Love seat, food storage, bread loaves, VCR tapes, books, toys, boots, shoes, slippers, etc) Anyway, happy to be here!!

Hi everybody! My name is Lola, and although i don't have any pictures on here, i will soon! I've recently adopted a beautiful husky boy named Oslo. In the past i have owned german shepherds, so Oslo is my first Sibe. I've done so much research finding what kind of dog i would be best suited for, and i found Siberian huskies and i are perfect for each other. I can't wait to share stories and photos of Oslo and of our future adventures!

Hello,
This is my first time on this site. I have a baby, she was born on St. Patrick's day of this year! Her name is Volka and she is a sweetheart. She is not my first dog, but my first Husky. We also have a Husky/sheppard mix named kyna who is her best friend.

Hello ! I found this site tonight while surfing for information on cateracts in huskys. Our husky is 10 yr old robin. Her sometimes friend is camillia, also 10 who is a purebred australian shepard. We have a mini farm on 35 a in northern michigan with rideing mules ,a mini donkey,and chickens. Our dogs have never been caged or penned and live in or out of the house as they choose (most of the time). Robin wears a radio tracking device for obvious reasons,but we have never had to use it except for monthly drills!She is rarely more than 500 feet from either the house, the barns,or us. The aussie is velcro'd to our leg so she doesnt need a radio!Anyway I have some serious medical issues to discuss but its getting too late tonight so I;ll be back in the morning!

Hi everyone! I have been a member for a while but not an active member. Trying to get back on track. I am friends with Jennifer Bealer who I met in another husky group here in Colorado. I have a husky named Shylo who just turned 7 and is the love of my life. Everyone calls him "the prince" because he acts all regal but secretly he is a big goofball. Looking forward to becoming a more active member.

Hey, Kelly! Nice to see you pop back on here Smile

Aaron said he got to meet you guys at the H2M2 last weekend and really liked Shylo. I can't wait to finally get out to Colorado myself.

Hi everyone, my name is Rebecca and I'm the proud, and exhausted... owner of Max, a crazy, hyper but lovable 5 month old husky. I live in New York City with my husband and 13 year old son and we all adore our baby Max. We would love to share tips and life experience with other fellow husky owners who are more experienced, since this is our first sibe and we want to make sure we are giving him proper care. Thank you all and I look forward to talking to you about our wonderful furry friends soon. Good day Very Happy

Great post and great sticky!  wave

Welcome, new members! Definitely check out all the stickies first and then introduce yourself in the Welcome Mat! http://www.itsahuskything.com/f1-the-welcome-mat  

Some great resources here for both first time husky owners, prospective owners and us old timers that just love talking about our dogs and have worn out friends and family with all our huskies stories!  lol!

Hollywood Huskies, I just rescued a 1.5 yrs old girl. Any tips on training? She doesn't potty in the house (unless her stomach is upset) but I am having a hard time getting her to not pull.

Hi, everyone! I'm a first time Husky owner. My fiance has had him for almost 8years. We were finally able to have him with us. Its been about a week. We have three cats. Its a big adjustment. But we are making it work. I will do everything in my power to keep him with us. He's a great dog. Super smart. Just really big!

We have a very small space but he doesn't seem to mind. We walk him constantly. His favorite game is tug of war. Which is great! Since you don't need lots of room for that. He's trying his hardest to be gentle with the cats and find his place in our pack.

He's a big baby, a goof ball and a Casanova. He is always trying to get my love! But his Daddy is who has his heart. Which is extremely fitting because he has mine as well.

I've come to this forum to figure this new life out. Already I've gotten help and advice. Everyone has been super nice and not at all judgy. Especially since this breed is very unique. Some people feel they need specifics to live a great life, I.e. a fenced in yard and a huge house.

Thanks for making this a comfortable place and having a site I can turn to for the suggestions and opinions I need. Smile
