|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.

I wasn't sure where to put this, so if it needs to be moved, please do so!
So, from the time I got Nya (she's 16 weeks now), she's had an intense fascination with chewing on sticks when we go outside. I normally take them away from her because I'm afraid that it will hurt her in some capacity, and she tries to stop me from doing so. I was curious as to if anyone actually lets their dogs chew on sticks. She's teething right now, so it's even more than usual. I do give her plenty of other things to chew on when we're inside, though she always tries to bring the sticks inside. Just wondering if I should continue to take them away, or just let her do it.

Cora has loved sticks since the day I got her, I asked my vet and he said its fine if she isnt eating large amounts of the stick and if there is moss on the stick take it away.

Every dog I've ever had will maul the occasional stick or twenty. Interesting texture, not hard, makes interesting sounds. It's a perfect storm of sensory play.

I'm an expert in the area of sticks.
Mine have yet to have anything "bad" happen because of chewing on sticks. Only thing I can really recommend is to make sure the stick or branch doesn't have thorns or doesn't come from a poisonous plant, like Oleander for example. Mine have quite an extensive collection of sticks and branches and chew on them on a daily basis.

I have heard of situations where a dog gets a piece of stick wedged across the top of their mouth. It's probably unlikely to happen, just keep an eye on her when she's playing with them.
Overall though, I can't think of any concerns. Especially with a teething puppy, that should be a great distraction. My two go through phases of loving sticks and have more than once tried to bring a favorite inside.
