|Husky of the Month|
Congrats Nikita, Archer, and Cheyanne,
our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|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.

So Timber has arrived- 5 yr old Dixie dog.
She's very vocal in her crate, but she has taken to laying down intermittently and has had a few quiet spells.
As of right now I've brought the crate into the dining room next to me as I type. She seems to need the contact.
Two kids under twelve, over nine- she's awesome with them.
She's a runner, she's already escaped today once. Other than, she's pretty good except...
She's deathly afraid of me. She's doing much better with me right now, because I'm next to her and passing small, high value treats through the cage when she stops freaking out.
Any tips or tricks? Major things to look out for with a bitch? Are they really food conscious (i.e., table sniffers and trash eaters)? How about CHICKENS-- we have some. Should we be worried. Let us know.
Looking forward to this next dog journey. Any advice you can give about from-the-shelter transition or stray-to-home transition is helpful.

Hi - welcome to the forum. Whereabouts in Massachusetts? I have a son in Westford, there is a member here from Billerica...
Our dog came from a shelter. We put him on a 100 ft overhead trolley and I swear, he did not stop running back and forth for 3 days
(He had been in the shelter for over a month and before that, he had been kept of 6 ft tether with little exercise.)
If she is food oriented, then treating her often will get her interest...I always have kibble in my pockets. Ami knows this and now, when I do laundry, he sits on the stack of dirty clothes and searches for any kibble I've forgotten
Chickens...could be dinner for a husky. My boy is a MAJOR counter surfer! Here's a thread with suggestions:https://www.itsahuskything.com/t12836-how-to-teach-house-manners?highlight=house+manners
Trash? Oh yes- look through the pictures in "adventures with ami"...
As for escaping - there is a siberian rescue in the midwest called "Hairy Houdini"...if that's a clue
Lots of exercise and my boy when he's on tether, has double shackles - he figured out how to undo them. So now, when he gets one of them open, he gives up since he's still not loose. He also no longer seems interested in taking off since we let him in the house daily and he has playtime several times a week with his doggy pal, Archer.
I'm sure your girl will come around from what you're saying about the crate next to you and treating her - excellent plan, I would think...
Enjoy your dog - pictures?
