|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 apologize if this has already been answered somewhere.. I have two 6 month old husky sisters and they are a blessing. Separate they are angels, I get compliments for how well behaved they are. But when they are out together they rough house and play fight constantly, it never stops even when they get tired. I hate having to separate them but sometimes they are just too crazy. Any advice?
Picture just because they are so cute

We also have siblings. I've just chalked it up to "that's the way things are" in regards to rough-housing and fighting. If I think they are going too far, I will stop it with a quick "HEY!" but that lasts for about 30 seconds.
I have separated them on occasion, but should be more consistent.
I have heard that huskies play-fight more roughly than other dogs. I do not know if that is true for the breed, but ours seem to battle constantly. It does not seem to phase them. One second they are fighting and another they are laying together, licking each other.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Husky play is NOT for the faint of heart!
While I don't have siblings, my son got his husky mix tjat was 4 months old when my guy was a little over a year. At first, they spent a LOT of time together because son was a field engineer and gone weeks, sometimes, months, at a time. So, they basically grew up together. They still visit several times a week and let me tell you, the play is ferocious. Looks like they are fighting to the death - except for the happy, satisfied looks on their faces as they rage. I can probably count on less than one hand how many times someone actually got hurt - and the "hurt" would be, at most, a tiny scratch in an ear.
Relax, enjoy the antics and when it looks like humans or furniture is at risk, give a big holler and a bit of time out.
