|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.

Al - do you have a crate for the Jackass? Before you do anything with the dogs, crate the A-hole. Then, methodically take care of the rest, when all is ready, Jackass can be let free! Or - back to house leash and tether to something sturdy.
Hey - was something wonky going on with the forum last night? I tried on 2 different phones to get on and some really weird stuff came up. Hoping I don't have to go hack hunting on 2 phones!

Kasper used to try to rush either of my dogs when they were trying to come up the back stairs after being in the yard to the point they wouldn't come up the stairs until he was removed from the top steps. Understandable, he was going to knock them down the stairs. We still struggle with overexcitement and how it turns him into the biggest jerk ever. The boot to face works. I usually get nasty with him and shove him back telling him no strongly then making him sit and wait while the others can get up the stairs safely and he has to stick to it until they are completely back in the house. Making him just stay in a sit until he chills out has been key for me. He just gets way too excited and I have to get him out of that headspace before he can really interact with the other dogs again. He's way better than when we first got him almost 6 months ago but he still regresses a few times a week and it's exhausting. If he would respond to an ecollar when over excited that could be an option. Kasper did have some response to the vibrate mode on mine as long as I didn't let him get super overexcited before buzzing him. If he was already too far gone then it would just make him even more excited.

Silly puppy is not going to learn that going near Avalanche when there's food involved is not a good idea. Fed puppy in his crate (door open) and fed Sky. Zeus comes out to see what he can scarf up on as I'm putting Avalanche's food in his bowl ... Avalanche tore him a new one and Zeus hobbles off crying like he'd been hurt (nothing except his pride!) 'Course since I was putting A's food in his bowl, I was right over them as the little one got his comeuppance again
96° with 30% humidity ... I took a nap and woke up soaked!!!!

There are times when it seems as if he's crated way beyond anything I'd like ... but then I'm not sure the other two would agree with me. I've tried closing the crate when I feed them all but as soon as I start to feed them he raises an ungodly racket. (It's getting to the point that I'm not sure I have anything sturdy enough.)
He's beginning (( beginning??? )) to piss me off. I try to leave water on the porch for the dogs who are outside. So far it's 2 'tank type' water bowls and 4 jugs for same. That alone is starting to get expensive - empty 5 gal jug cost $15.00. He just pushed them off the porch and the 3 foot drop is enough to trash anything with any weight (like a 5 gal just 1/2 full of water).
