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.

Our husky puppy Mila is now about 6 months old and she's primarily been an outdoor dog. We live in town and have a fenced in backyard, a nice 5x10' kennel, and an igloo dog house. Since we've gotten her she has been outdoors and been fine. During the day if we aren't home, she is locked up. As well as at night. Recently she has become very attached (mainly after she got spayed). Don't get me wrong, I see this as a good thing, although she likes to sit next to the patio door and bark/yip until she gets attention. We do give her plently of attention and take her on daily walks to burn up some energy. As a result of the recent barking I did a simple search and came across many posts (mainly Yahoo), which people criticize husky owners for keeping their dogs outside. A lot of "if you can't have your dog inside to give constant attention you don't deserve to be a dog owner".
That specific line really disturbed me and made me question if my wife and I are doing things wrong. We both grew up with labs, which were outdoor dogs..which is why we came into this planning on Mila being outdoor. And yes, I understand they are completely different breeds with different needs. She likes her kennel at night but doesn't sleep or go in her doghouse very often
So, I'm just looking for some general opinions on this topic as well as husky owners who have their pup/dog outside (I'm sure Mila is not the only outdoor husky).
We are considering letting her inside during the nights when we are home, crating her inside at night, and keeping her in the outdoor kennel during the day. Currently I have her inside right now and she is just laying next to me, calm as can be.
Thank you in advance!
