|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.

Well, since all my dogs are rescues who are well into their adult coat, I had to go looking.
It seems to range between 4 months (or so of course) on up to around a year - apparently depending on the dog. What you'll see first is the presence of longer hair - his guard hair - coming in over his juvenile hair, then he'll gradually lose that juvenile hair -or- he may just blow the juvenile coat as his adult undercoat comes in.
I'm not a lot of help since, as I said my dogs were all adults when I got them and looking on the web doesn't seem to give anything resembling a definitive answer.

Spider started losing her puppy coat at about 6 months old. Came out as her first real winter coat came in. Might be slightly inaccurate based on spider being a mix. But it is my understanding that as far as coats go, a sibe/wolf and a pure sibe would be on similar timelines with coats. It is also my understanding that where you actually live will effect when they blow their coat.
