|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.

I am an avid hiker and take my 1.5 year old husky on all my adventures.
With summer around the corner I am a little apprehensive to bring her with me.
Does anyone hike in the summer with their Huskies? Tips and tricks to keep them happy and healthy on the trail ?

I do - plenty of water, plenty of water, breaks in the shade...plenty of water. Oh, and a leash. Don't know where you are but rattlesnakes scare me...short leash

Mountain man, I live in the desert with temps in the 90's and up so we don't do much daytime walking. I'm not a morning person so my pups get out in the evening - it's still hot but with the sun going down it's tolerable. My dogs love getting out and getting a chance to run as much as I'll let them.
As Amy says take plenty of water - and let the dogs carry that - take plenty of breaks and most of all, work up to it. If your dogs, like mine, have been loafing their way through the winter you don't want to start them off with a 20 mile hike during the heat of the evening.

Lots of water, ice cubes or frozen treats, wipes, and plenty of breaks. I think this all applies for the both of you, lol!
