|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.

Is it still possible for an 7 to 8 year old husky to be in canicross gear? Mika is 7 years old, going on 8 in April, and she is 69 pounds. She is still fairly active. Not overly hyper like your typical husky, but still has good energy. Would it be safe for a dog like her? I'm very new to this, but heard of it and did some research on it. Thought I should at least give it a shot. I was looking for a more involved way to get into shape with my best friend. Any tips?

Mika hasn't had any huge problems getting up yet, except for when it comes to getting in the jeep. We've been giving her a good supplement for her glucosamine, and its been helping alot. The vet just told us to keep an eye on her. What are some good sites online to look for the equipment for canicross for a good price? Mika still shakes her head side to side, as if she was telling us no, to go back inside. She loves going to trails and parks. Any time it gets rainy, she looks so depressed.

You need a harness for her and a belt for you and line to connect the two of you. A skijor belt works great for canicross. Check out some of the mushing outfitters outline for equipment! Alpine Outfitters, Adanac are a couple of good ones out west.......
