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.

|Subject: Luka's Great Escape Thu Jul 14, 2016 2:49 pm|| |
So Luka discovered how to escape from the office we had him in during the day when we're at work. We bought an "extra tall" baby gate to contain him in there, since that was the room we didn't care about getting damaged... So Monday the mister went home to walk him at lunch, and lo and behold, Luka greeted him with Mia at the door.
Apparently, there's a little teeny gate within the gate that you can open if you have a cat or small chihuahua sized dog that needed to get through the house. This was held shut with a screw...that Luka managed to snap. He somehow managed to squeeze himself through the little opening, and made his escape.
The security footage was great, though. He did zoomies for about half an hour and was SO proud of himself! So far, not much damage, apart from tea towls that were on the oven, and a pair of placemats from the table... But that seems to be it for keeping him cooped up in one room. We'd ziptie the cat flap closed, but he likes eating zipties, even the heavy duty ones.
Luka's almost 5 months...Mia we gave up on three weeks (she was 2 at the time) in because she escapes from everything....How old were your pups when and if they finally got free range?

Sofie my gsd pup has always had free range, when teething she ate 2 pairs of older shoes, and that was it. My husky wasn't trustworthy at all until well over a year old probably 18 months old, before destruction ceased. even still, 3 hours is the max Miya can be alone, and I probably would come home to damage if I was gone longer than that.With my gsd the only issue was potty in the house pre 6 months, so I crated her when I left. At 11 months old and 3.5 years old I can safely leave them for about 2 hours, haven't tried longer than that. Hope that helps, I will say from what I have read here a trustworthy husky is not common under a year old.

I'm not super concerned, my husband comes home every three ish hours to check and we get a live feed from our security system so we can keep an eye on him. Mias been real good about keeping him busy too. In the morning he passes out, and then he's only up for a couple of hours without us here. I think of we were to be gone more than three or four hours we'd have to figure out another way to keep him in the office tho... That would be pushing his house breaking. He's pretty good most of the time tho.
