Forum Rules
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.

Good Morning Everyone!

We have three adorable Siberian Huskies that absolutely love life. We got them in January and boy are they growing up fast!
Does anyone have any tips for new pet owners? We absolutely love them, but at times we feel a bit overwhelmed with having them at the house.
From the non-stop energy to the constant fur that needs to be picked up. Any help would be greatly appreciated! 😀

Knowing how old they are would help. If you got 3 puppies in January then they are still too young for major hiking, but lots of mental exercise learning tricks can help to wear them down. Puppies also need a lot of time away from each other so that each dog gets the opportunity to develop their own independence. Puppies that spend too much time together can be difficult to separate if something were to happen to one of them and often you will have a pup that just doesn't get to build the confidence it would be able to otherwise if it got time away from the pack. It's not recommended to get more than one puppy at a time due the issues that can arise if littermate syndrome isn't properly managed. Daycare can be very helpful if you have one around. Sending a single pup to daycare on a day and rotate the dogs around gets them each out on their own socializing with other dogs that aren't their siblings.

3 adolescent dogs need a lot of exercise. Two of mine are old now and don't require quite the extreme exercise anymore. I do a couple miles with them in the morning and a short walk in the evening. My 1.5 year old goes to daycare twice a week which has helped massively with his social skills and on those two days he is worn out without any effort on my part. Other days we go out twice. He does the couple morning miles with the old dogs then we will do 3-6 miles in the evening if weather will allow. If it won't we play tugs and work on focus training.

Welcome to energy overload.. lol. We also got siblings last June, four. I can tell you I gave up a year of my life. It was very hard to manage and train that many puppies. We did take them to training. The whole family. This way each person in the house was learning the same commands as were the dogs and that is a big plus. They also got to socialize with other dogs. We do have a nice fenced in yard so they able to run and get some of their energy out. It is a big journey but with training and exercise we do see a change in the dogs. They are not as wild as they were when we brought them home. They are very loving and wanting to spend time with us. So worth the work, but siblings are alot of work.
