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.

Hi folks - brand new here and thankful I found this forum! I have a 7 month old male Siberian Husky - love him to bits but he needs a companion who can give him the 3000% amount of attention that he requires. We’re thinking another dog and narrowing in on the mini Golden Retriever. Size would be right but am wondering if anyone has ever had this particular combo before? Do they play well together? Let me know of any concerns or issues you’re aware of - thank you so much!

Like labs, the Goldies I've seen aren't big on rough play and that's how the Husky will play - ROUGH!  If you don't know what you're looking at, you'd say they're fighting. But then you'll realize that with all the growling and "biting" there's no blood.  It's play, Husky style!

I have no idea how a Goldie will react to that - my one time lab just backed off but that doesn't always work.

If you've never seen two Huskies play, you might want to locate someone else who has one and let them "play" ... then see how the Goldie stands up to it ... I'm thinking, from what I've seen of Goldies, probably not too well.

Husky and german shepherd is generally a good combo. Although you mention a smaller dog but most dogs that can't handle a husky aren't big. I mean like My GSD I got a husky in the first place because he is SUPER rough, intimidates my sister's pitt bull lab mix. And I knew a little dog even if it was tolerant of rough play wasn't a good idea. So that's why I picked a husky. What's good is you have one dog that isn't protective but the other is. So while You can have a GSD as a natural guard dog, You can have the more friendly husky isn't as intimidating to people. I already had a natural protection dog, so I felt I didn't need another, hence another reason why I got a husky. I myself wanted a golden as a companion for him, but thought it was too big.  If you don't want to go for a GSD I suggest schnauzer maybe? My neighbors schnauzer is pretty good with my husky. All schnauzer sizes are smaller then a husky so If you do go for that I suggest the largest size, the standard or mid size version.

@copperhusky the giant schnauzer is bigger then a gsd but lives longer and has less health problems. Also used for the same personal protection/police and military work as a gsd.

The giant isn't the same as the standard I don't think.
