|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 know I may be asking a lot of questions but I need to make sure I know what I'm doing for my boy when he comes home.
Regarding puppy walking.
I know hip dysplasia is a huge issue when he grows up so avoiding this is a must.
I also know the rule of thumb is 5min walk = 1 month of age.
Silly question, does this mean at 8 weeks = 10min walk a day or walking session.
I don't want to over walk him if it wont be good for him in the end.
Thanks again for all your help

Okay so it means in sessions cora had a lot of energy at 8 weeks old, so I walked her 4 times a day 10 minutes at a time! It's Greta to get their energy out by playing in the house with balls and toys. Also remember to keep the walks limited outside because Milo won't have all his shots yet and you don't want to risk something like parvo, these are some things I didn't know and luckly Cora never got hurt but she could have gotten sick.

This might be saying some of what has already ben said, but hold off on walking your puppy until it's had all its shots. Parvo is a huge issue and can be picked up by simply sniffing an infected dog's poop on a walk. Until then, carry your puppy in places where there could be a risk of parvo. Puppies that young don't need to be walked until they're a little older. Free play on soft surfaces (carpet, grass, etc.) is fine for now. It's amazing how stimulating and tiring a good raining session can be at that age, too! Now is the time to work on training and socialization. Good luck!
