|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.

Winter is just rough for trying to get enough exercise in when the days are so short! I feel so bad when she plops her head in my lap and lets out a big ol' sigh to tell me she is bored.
Any suggestions for indoor mental games that I can play with Suka? I saw some dog games on Amazon but I thought I would ask the experts before buying anything. Thanks everyone!

I'm no expert but I just bought a Kong Wobbler recently our 5 month old absolutely loves trying to get the food out - it is recommended that it's used with supervision only as she does try to chew the top sometimes haha. I've also purchased a bob-a-lot by starmark so will see what this is like when it arrives. We also play tug of war in the living room and this can last for a very long time and keep her entertained. I'm sure the others will have other ideas as well!

We get Lucy those HUGE rawhide sticks, that keeps her busy and content since they love to chew. Also, tug of war and what not.

I like to turn meal time into a game. Instead of just throwing the food into a bowl, I'll leave piles in various locations. It engages a lot of senses and forces some activity.
If you have enough space, you could try dog agility stuff. Get a set of indoor flags, tunnels, and jump bars. Set them up in an open area of your house and train him to run the agility course.
