I was about to say he'll lick any kitty to death but that just opens me up for too many jokes.

Maxwell needs a silver hammer chew toy for his life to be complete, but otherwise he's happy. He's 8 weeks old and his hobbies include peeing, sleeping in my hamper, and chewing toes.

The puppy is a Bichon Frisé and they don't usually get taller than a foot or so - this guy's still got a long way to go, but will always be rather small and cute. My boyfriend's parents had a Bichon Frisé before and we really liked him, so we chose to go for the same breed.

He was totally shocked by what he read. I didn't think I'd have to explain the term fisting quite so soon.

Finefinemusic, can your little puppy become THE OFFICIAL ILX PUPPY?

The Real Dirty Vicar, Sunday, 20 January 2008 18:58 (6 years ago) Permalink

You gonna keep giving him the puppy cut or the show-style bichon cut, when he needs grooming in the future?

Abbott, Sunday, 20 January 2008 19:03 (6 years ago) Permalink

Neither my boyfriend nor I really are down with the typical Bichon cut, no - we'll probably keep a cut similar to what he's got now as he ages.

I asked him if he'd like to be the official ILX Puppy and he gave me a weird look and then tried to bite my arm, which I assume is a "yes" from him. He's in good company, his best dog friends (aka our friends' dogs) are named Arlo and Dylan.

Good timing for the revive. Mrs. Hurting and I think we want to adopt a dog from a shelter, preferably a puppy or young dog. She has dog experience, I have almost none. She's kind of partial to Jack Russells (we've seen a few available at shelters), but I'm concerned about the energy thing (they're especially spunky). I'd be fine with an ugly mutt - my only concern is that you don't always know how big a mutt will get.

Advice on how to proceed? What to look for? How to prepare? I think we've thought over the decision pretty well. We're not heavy travelers and her work schedule is going to be easy enough that she can do extra walks when I'm busy with school. We have a decent-sized apartment so smallish dog is probably better. I feel ready to deal with the commitment even if it means scaling back some social activities (we're home a lot anyway). Maybe there's a thread on this already but searching "dog" is not highly effective.

Hurting 2, Sunday, 23 March 2008 21:26 (6 years ago) Permalink

gr8080, what kind of dog is that?

Melissa W, Sunday, 23 March 2008 21:43 (6 years ago) Permalink

hurting, do you own furniture, or nice things? if so, are they all kept in a remote storage facility, or in the apartment? if the answers are "yes" and "the apartment," I would advise against a jack russell.

you can get a decent gauge of a mutt puppy's eventual size by looking at their paws. a female will generally provide for less wear and tear around the house than a male. being a smartypants, I recommend desmond morris' "dogwatching" for a decent education on the bastards.

El Tomboto, Sunday, 23 March 2008 22:18 (6 years ago) Permalink

> best opposite sex (?!)

If the best of breed is a boy-dog, the judges also choose the best bitch and verse-visa.

Oilyrags, Monday, 24 March 2008 13:11 (6 years ago) Permalink

i would also advise against a jack russell. they're small, sure, but they require an incredible amount of exercise. you're right to be concerned about their energy levels. i'm far from being an expert but i've walked a few at our local shelter, and it's like having a 15lb rocket on a lead. also, they're not necessarily the most easy-going breed. read the "temperament" section on this page:

http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/jackrussellterrier.htm

i don't mean to be down on them, because they're supercute and peppy, but you should be aware of possible problems as a first-time dog owner.

lauren, Monday, 24 March 2008 13:57 (6 years ago) Permalink

fiancee has got a jack russell who is probably an anomaly cos he's not a total bastard. they have a lot of energy, but because they're so small, they wear out fast, too, if they're doing some high energy shit like running laps around your living room (maybe that's just him, he will seriously run in loop until (a) he gets tired or (b) someone is quick enough to snatch him up). but otherwise he's pretty even-keeled and can actually catch things in his mouth as opposed to letting toys hit him in the face and then looking at you sideways like wtf i can't eat this shit??

her mother's two jack russells are less nice, tho. one of which is just the loudest dog i've heard, srsly, cannot even sleep in that house, 6 am barking at nothing sessions. think the other one is too fat to be annoying. so based on my super scientific sample, 1 out of 3 jack russells are awes.

Yeah, I helped my wife dogsit a jack russell once. It was a great dog but it didn't seem to have an off switch. I swear I must have thrown the chew toy to it over and over again for an hour straight before I just gave up.

Hurting 2, Monday, 24 March 2008 19:47 (6 years ago) Permalink

My wife claims its not that different from any other dog, but I think that's just because she grew up with another really difficult dog that needed tons of exercise and play.

aww puppyloaf

listen hurting if you want a lazy ass dog you might have to go big. people are always reject large dogs because they need a lot of room to run around in. its all lies. our great dane sleeps about 20 hours a day and english bull mastiff i had before that slept about that too.

sunny successor, Monday, 24 March 2008 20:56 (6 years ago) Permalink

also, when our great dane finishes eating at her bowl she carries back some biscuits to her bed. i suspect its so she doesnt have to go to all the trouble of standing up to eat if she feels hungry later. i mean, her food bowl is 10 whole feet away from her bed.

Poor little guy. It took two hours to get all that fur off him and as you can see it's not nearly finished, we just didn't want to stress him out any further for the night. This week is round two. Right now it kind of looks like he is wearing Uggs.

We also washed him a little while ago. I'm worried he's going to plot something evil to make up for our poor treatment of him...

He's such a joy to have around, life with a puppy (he's about 5 months now, give or take) is so fulfilling!

I have no beef against little dog clothes on shorthair breeds in the dead of winter when they're taken out for a walk, or against bandanas on Pomeranians. Otherwise, no.

Abbott, Monday, 14 April 2008 17:48 (6 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, in the winter Toronto just went through, clothes on that puppy were a necessity. That's also the reason we let his fur get so long/poofy. It's been really cold this winter, with snowbanks 2-3 feet high! My poor puppy actually shivered noticeably even with the hoodie on. Also, you don't deny your Grandmother without great-grandkids the chance to clothe/bathe someone in affection, even if it doesn't speak English! Buying Max has put off the "I want great grandkids" discussion for another few years...

The picture wasn't midjump though, he's got this weird trick where he just randomly stands on his hind legs for ten seconds at a time and jumps down again. Such a weird dog.

He's doing well post-surgery! They shaved a bit of one of his legs to put the IV in, so his coat looks extra stupid now :P Poor thing.

We've just moved to an apartment in a triplex with a private backyard, so life is about to get a lot more awesome for the little guy!

Sadly I do have movies.. I've become *that* person. I used to videotape drunken singalongs, now I tape amusing fetch sessions. Sigh. Once we're sorted at home I may upload something to Youtube; can't remember if I actually have a video that's interesting in the slightest.

haha the only pictures that turned out other than an unfocused white blur were the ones in which she's sitting down for 2 seconds (before maniacally running after anything that catches her eye).

Molly is a poodle/bichon mix and she is 8 weeks old.

Hey FineFine - I think I just realized something really weird. Does your real name start with an "A" and did you happen to post a long time ago on D-land? If so, do you remember Star-Nicole? If this is all really bizarre and makes no sense then I apologize in advance. lol.

LOL OMG you've got my number! How weird to meet again! May I ask what jogged your memory?

I kid you not, on Saturday night in a bar in Toronto someone came up to me and said "You're totally A____ D_____." and it was a girl I knew when I was a concert-crazy teenager/D-lander. What a weird world!

Max ate our cell phone last night. It still works, but it's very badly damaged. It was at least 5 years old though, so maybe he was doing our lazy asses a favour. A few weeks ago he chewed the nosepiece off my glasses! This dog is evil. But so cute at 6:45AM when my alarm goes off and he wants to jump all over me!

Since I feel the need to update ILX on Max everytime PUPPY!!!! is revived, know that he has become a chewing nuisance as he reaches his first birthday (11/22) and has developed a taste for fabric of all kinds. Nothing is safe, my panties and socks are in shambles (he manages to pull them out of thin air, I swear, I put them away religiously) and there are now holes in the comforter on my bed and he even chewed a hole into one of my IKEA poang chair covers. Little fucker.

I think this picture is rather large but I can't size it without HTML so here is a picture of PUPPY!!!!! On his one year anniversary with me, and his buddy Arlo. And the novelty dog mat my Grandma bought me which I pretended to hate but sort of kind of love.

hi everybody. here's what happened.

last thursday i was driving in a pretty shitty part of LA (east santa ana) when i saw this stray dog running back and forth across a busy five-lane road. i was surprised because it wasn't really a residential area. i went around the block and i saw that as soon as he made it safely across the street he would run back in the other direction. he was literally zigzagging through SUVs.

anyway i pulled over and ran out into traffic and he ran away from me into some bushes. after about 45 minutes and with the help of 5 or 10 passerby, my girlfriend managed to coax him out of the bushes and into her arms.

he's a really beautiful dog and he has neither collar nor microchip. the people at the pound and the animal control officers urged us to take him home, so here we are. he seems really depressed so we wonder if he wasn't trapped in some sort of horrible thing like an underground breeding ring (he still has his balls and seems to not have had much socialization). he basically just sits on our laps with that traumatized look for 10 hours a day. he doesn't like to not be touching one of us and when one of us goes in the shower he stands at the door and whines. he won't walk on a leash anywhere that isn't the inside of my warm, safe, apartment because i think he's scared. he literally shivers with fear when he hears barking dogs. so i am basically starting to feel like i've adopted an infant.

but, there's some progress. he finally started wagging his tail like a real dog on sunday and playing with toys yesterday. at this rate we should have him chasing a stick by 2012 and housebroken by 2015.

so, yeah, life happens. sorry i abandoned my project and sorry if it led to a bit of stress. i still have my notes on my four albums and i think i'll just wait for another turn next week or for the conversation to pick up.

his name is santiago de chicharron (santiago the fried pork rind).

we want to get him "fixed" (and "(house)broken", funny juxtaposition of terms) but we don't want to pile trauma on top of trauma so we're consulting with vets about if and when to do it. his behavior is still evolving on a day-to-day basis so we want to give him a bit of time ...

FWIW even the most well-adjusted dachshunds have a rep for being difficult to potty train. I am rooting for little Santiago!

sharkless dick stick (Abbbottt), Thursday, 26 August 2010 20:44 (3 years ago) Permalink

Housetraining shouldn't be too traumatic for him if it's done the proper way. In fact, it might give him a routine and a sense of stability because it consists of easily learned behaviors. Whenever we have new dogs in the house I use the Dogstar Daily Errorless Housetraining Method, which works really well. The hard part is getting the dog used to being penned or crated.

crating pups makes me sad.

not trying to open debate on the crating issue but man i've seen a few neglected doggies in crates and it just braeks my <3 ;__;

tangelo amour (elmo argonaut), Thursday, 26 August 2010 20:50 (3 years ago) Permalink

yeah, crating him makes me sad too but i don't have a whole lot of options right now. we're moving this month from an apartment to a house with a secluded, fenced backyard so hopefully he can chill there while we're at work, and then when we're potty trained he can just hang wherever he likes.

he's certainly not neglected when we're not at work. all he wants to do is curl up and chill next to us on the couch or bed. he hasn't barked yet - though he whines a little bit - and he loves to be held like a baby and carried around. he's basically just a little stuffed animal, all he wants is to be loved.

his main problem with potty is that he's so scared of the universe that he refuses to go outside. he will literally hold it outside until he gets inside. part of the problem is that i live in a part of san diego that has a really high concentration of unmarried couples (young and same-sex) so there are a million and one dogs. literally you can't stand outside our place in the afternoon for five minutes without a dog passing by.

anyway the good news is that he's so small that it's not really a big deal when he drops the cosbys inside. there's a maltese poodle in our complex who is about half his size and that's complicating the issue. it's just a little embarrassing because i'm constantly carrying out little piss-soaked towels and bags of poop to bury in the yard in the hopes that he'll start to think it's part of his territory. on the other hand, maybe he'll think it's a big game?

oh, and judging by the teeth it seems like he's a little more than three years old.

moonship journey to baja, Thursday, 26 August 2010 22:59 (3 years ago) Permalink

FWIW my dog is a totally afraid of the world-type dog (we got her from a shelter) and she seems to really love her crate. We only put her in there when we're gone, but she goes in there of her own accord whenever she is feeling freaked out. Maybe she used to live with someone who had her in a crate, I don't know, but it really seems to comfort her when she's scared.

yeah Henry really digs his crate - if you approach it the right way it doesn't have to be a prison or anything, more of a sanctuary really. key part here is to never ever use the crate as a time out or bad dog training substitute, that will fuck it up for sure.

yeah, i mean half the time when we are on the bed the little dude all the way under the down comforter digging in circles and rearranging it to make himself a little cave sit in, which if you think about it, is sort of what a doghouse is, and a crate is basically just a portable doghouse with a lockable door on it. we always put a bunch of toys and snuggly fabric pieces and treats in there with him and i think he just thinks of it as a safe place to chill where he's out of sight of predators or whatnot.

yeah Henry really digs his crate - if you approach it the right way it doesn't have to be a prison or anything, more of a sanctuary really. key part here is to never ever use the crate as a time out or bad dog training substitute, that will fuck it up for sure.

We had a six-month American Pit Bull here for a week once who was going to a rescue in Sweden, and she was so well crate trained that she took all her meals in her crate, slept in it, and would climb into it by herself when she just wanted to groom herself and get away from it all. This all paid off in spades when I had to bring her to the airport, and while other dogs who weren't used to crates were freaking out around her in the cargo lounge, she just lay down in her crate and went to sleep.

The thing I took away from the toilet training regime described on that site is not so much the crating as the toileting on command. I was amazed that it could actually work.

So happy for moonship's dog now though. He probably never imagined he'd have such a nice place to live (not that I really think dogs are like Oliver or Annie or anything).

trishyb, Friday, 27 August 2010 07:19 (3 years ago) Permalink

We think she is border collie and corgi. The vet thought part basset hound, but she never seems interested in *smells* like a hound is. Also she lookjs like other border collie/corgis I have found pics of on the internet, like this one:

i am v glad to be schooled on positive uses of crating bc my perceptions have been negative. for ex, i knew a beautiful keeshond whose owners would use the crate as punishment and the poor thing would just go crazy in there and chew on himself. just awful.

another dog -- whippet/pit mix owned by a friend -- gets horrible separation anxiety and is v destructive if alone & crated, so i always associated the crate to a prison for her misbehaviour. but it's good to know that being in the crate may actually provide a sense of security when she is alone!

got up early, took santi outside for potty. santi refused to potty, came inside, with 30 seconds promptly pottied on floor. conversation on drive to work: how we wished he'd hurry up.

got home early from work today. took santi outside for potty, fully expecting no results. santi immediately potties. right where i buried his poop the other night.

we freak out, heap praise on santi. tail wags like nuts. i pick santi up. santi promptly sprouts massive erection and ejaculates on my shirt.

Meet Teufel, a a 5 month old puppy I adopted today. His mother was a Schnauzer-mix found with a litter of 9 amongst some PVC waste in December.

He's got a lovely (and hopefully non-shedding) brindle wiry coat, already follows me around like a magnet, came housetrained from the rescue group, and hasn't barked or whimpered once. He's a GOOD boy.

Johnny Fever, Saturday, 26 March 2011 21:18 (3 years ago) Permalink

Teufel's probably going to be 45 lbs, 18 inches at the shoulder. He's already 2/3's there by weight/volume. Medium size. I lived with 3 toy/miniature size dogs, and they couldn't handle walking 3 miles around the neighborhood, much less joining me hiking.

What's remarkable is how gentle he is amongst all the yapping dogs baying for attention when I adopted him. He's figured out the dog doors in about 30 seconds (the miniature dogs took 5 days).

simon is in hella recovery stage...he's anemic right now b/c he had so many ticks taking his blood, plus he's got a kidney stone which cannot be operated upon until his anemia is gone. thankfully the kidney stone is super tiny and may not even require surgery (best case scenario) but he has to eat specialty food that's low in calcium and high on makes-you-pee. which means other doggy cannot eat this.

this is pissing other doggy off SO MUCH because now we have to do separate feeding sessions instead of free feeding like has been doing and he is freaking the fuck out that he cant have this special food (bc eating it will make him sick). so instead the motherfucker wont eat his own goddamn food. its like, you fucking asshole, you would rather starve to death than deal with a lil gustatory monotony? FUCK YOU.

nice! Well, Max will be 5 in November but he's still frisky and happy. Andrew & I are rather childish people who are happy on the ground giving belly rubs (he goes NUTS if you rub his arm pits! We call it "the arm thing" as in "Max, do you want to do the arm thing?") so hopefully we'll keep him young.

My husband & I have different schedules, so every morning when I wake up I pick Max up off the floor and tuck him into my spot. Bugger spends 90% of his day being cuddled or sleeping, life's not so bad for old Max!
3 more hours til I see his waggy little tail.

Does any other dog that y'all have do a kind of breathy panting thing when you rub him? Max goes whole hog, it's pretty funny. Hard to describe over text, sadly. But it's so intense and adorable.

I'm familiar with the health issues of French bulldogs (along with all other breeds I might consider - but really how many breeds are there that don't have some sort of significant health or other issue?), I'm just curious about what sort of time, money, and energy is needed in actually raising a dog.

EDB, Tuesday, 3 April 2012 22:24 (2 years ago) Permalink

time = not quite comparable to a child but getting there

money = so, so much money. like $1000/yr or more

energy = actually find dogs give you energy rather than the reverse

the late great, Tuesday, 3 April 2012 22:31 (2 years ago) Permalink

i guess the difference between my dog and a child is i can leave him at home unsupervised, but when i am with him it is like having a toddler around who has no hands.

the money thing might be on the high side, i tend to pay out the nose for medical expenses cause i'm a sucker (it's not good enough to remove weird bumps, i have to get them biopsied too) but then again i don't pay any kennel fees and some of my friends pay like $20/day because they don't want their little buddies sitting bored at home all day by themselves

the late great, Tuesday, 3 April 2012 22:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

see I'm not willing to get a dog til a) at least one of us can be at home with it and b) we have a big enough backyard for running and frollicking. which sounds more and more like a crazy utopian dream

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Tuesday, 3 April 2012 22:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

if you get a little enough dog you don't need a big backyard, but yeah, leaving them at home by themselves is so ;_;

i guess at one extreme there are people who get like chemo and organ transplants and super-expensive doggy day care for their dogs and at the other extreme there's probably people who spend $0 on their dogs, just tie 'em up w/ a rope and feed them leftover human food

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Tuesday, 3 April 2012 22:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

My MIL was such a total pushover when it came to training, I think was what happened to the shihtzu. The dog wouldn't eat out of a bowl as a puppy so now there's a kitchen towel with kibble on it on the floor for her, she won't eat if you standing nearby, she won't eat if it's this food, she won't eat if it's that food, it's just so ridiculous to me...in their old house, in addition to leaving food on the floor, they also used to leave a little pile of kibble for her on the couch, in case she wanted to eat. I felt like a crabby old farmer, RAGH JUST PUT THE FOOD IN A FARKIN BOWL SHE'LL EAT WHEN SHE GETS HUNGRY

My pupster went through about 5 of my pillows and 3 of his dog beds, but he finally stopped evicerating the cushioning hereabouts around his first birthday. k9ballistics makes some pretty chew resistant dog beds, if that's what we're seeing (they discontinued a indoor/outdoor cot that I got).

Every time I see a picture like the one above with the pillows all gored, or see people asking for donations to cover their $10,000 dog surgery, it's like "I can't handle this shit!"

At the same time, it's not like I haven't just started a phd where I'll be on my own schedule and in the same place for the next 6-8 years. And it's not like I haven't just moved into an apartment with a backyard and an unused room connected to mine, and which is 2 minutes from a dog park.

The more serious I get, the more I get cold feet.

Originating on the continent of Africa,[13] basenji-like dogs have lived with humans for thousands of years. Dogs resembling modern Basenjis can be seen on stelae in the tombs of Egyptian pharaohs, sitting at the feet of their masters, looking just as they do today, with pricked ears and tightly curled tails. Dogs of this type were originally kept for hunting small game by coursing.

i'll go weeks without hearing it, but the best way to describe it is imagine a bark that all the other dogs would make fun of a dog for having because its such a shitty bark.

This is Kenny, a 15-year-old lurcher who is mostly whippet. He stays with me when one of my friends has a job out of town. His bark mutates into weird dog singing, particularly if there are other dogs on TV.

Seriously. When I inform people that Ken is 15, they look around anxiously like we're just sitting here, waiting for the dog ambulance because he shakes like most sighthounds do, takes a daily pill for dog arthritis - but is in really good shape. He could be nearer 16, because his age was estimated at 12-18 months when he was adopted as a rescue in late '98.

He is unusually amenable to being photographed, and has the most gorgeous, long paws:

tsrobodo, Monday, 12 August 2013 22:12 (8 months ago) Permalink

I know right??? She still has dog breath tho but I love to bury my face in the angora scruff on the back of her neck and inhale xp

The rescue group (n0rsled) thinks she is 1.5-2yrs? She is our first husky...and our first dog! But she seems to have unusually good manners and has between so well behaved the last 2 days we spent alone with her (she is being kenneled by n0rsled bc we haven't signed our pet lease yet).

just1n3, Monday, 12 August 2013 22:15 (8 months ago) Permalink

Her original owner almost beat her to death (broken back, broken ribs, punctured lungs, broken teeth, fractured jaw, to name a few of the injuries), n0rsled rehabbed her and rehomed get but it only lasted 6mths - she was left unattended with their elderly small dog and she pretty brutally attacked it, so they surrendered her back to n0rsled.

Her name is neko btw

Frustrating to think how many stupendously shitty dog owners there are in this world.
1.5 looks about right though I probably would have guessed younger. Wish I was brave enough to go for a rescue for my first dog, and really hope things go well with Neko. Max came from a breeder across the street from my dads. Used to play with her original breeding pair when we were kids.

His parents both have a fair bit of brown but he only really has it on the ears, they're known to change colour though he hasn't really got any darker so far.

tsrobodo, Monday, 12 August 2013 23:33 (8 months ago) Permalink

Shedding has begun but the furminator has been a lifesaver. Only real issue is the way his fur sticks in my nappy ass hair.

Oh and the inexplicable peeing on my bed. knows not to go anywhere in the house but if I leave my room for 10 seconds he will be up on there murdering my mattress.

tsrobodo, Monday, 12 August 2013 23:40 (8 months ago) Permalink

I read (last week, when my dog peed in my bed) that they do that because they're scared & want to bury their scent with yours. In my Doug's case, he's become too attached to me being home all the time and then I took him to grandma's house for a week and she & I went out, leaving him there for a few hours. Got back to a smelly bed. :(

I love Neko :)

she started dancing to that (Finefinemusic), Monday, 12 August 2013 23:47 (8 months ago) Permalink

Yeah that makes sense seeing as he's also done it in one of my shoes, trying to get a bit of a headstart on separation anxiety before he's older but he still hows like a werewolf on helium when alone.

tsrobodo, Monday, 12 August 2013 23:56 (8 months ago) Permalink

I was wondering about the furminator - a guy at the adoption didn't recommend it, but I know that it gets rave reviews.

For us, there was never any other option than rescue - it's just something we both feel really strongly about - and we are fortunate that there are so many breed-specific rescue groups in the bay area. We knew we def wanted either a malamute, husky or mix.

Neko has brown eyes, really big paws and a bushy tail so probably a bit of malamute in there, I would guess.

estela, Tuesday, 13 August 2013 00:35 (8 months ago) Permalink

Vet said it's fine as long as it's not used on knotted or wet fur.

Yeah I completely get that and still wonder if I did the right thing. But then I think about how nervy the first two weeks were and don't think I'd be willing to try again if something had gone wrong with a rescue

tsrobodo, Tuesday, 13 August 2013 01:17 (8 months ago) Permalink

We weren't keen on going through a shelter or pound bc we would have been too nervous as well - in that environment it's hard for the staff to really know the true personality of the dog (we saw this play out with my in-laws but it all worked out for them in the end).

Because this is our first dog, because we rent, and because we wanted a breed that happens to be known for being quite stubborn and a bit of a handful, it was important for us to go through a rescue group who fosters the dogs out so their personalities come out and they can really match the dog to the right owner.

Right now they have a husky called solo who is SO ADORABLE but omg - so naughty! We were at an adoption fair and we watched this dog,.annoyed she wasnt getting enough attention, slowly and deliberately grab the corner of the tablecloth on the merch table and yank the whole thing off. I almost cried laughing so hard, but can you imagine how much work she is??

just1n3, Tuesday, 13 August 2013 01:34 (8 months ago) Permalink

That makes a lot of sense, hadn't even realise that there were such fostering schemes but looking back my knowledge of rescue centres was pretty rudimentary up until recently.

Solo sounds awesome but then I think that stubbornness and mischief making is one of the more endearing things about huskies. Of course you want to weed out destructive behaviour but I like the idea of a dog that has its own ideas about how things should be done, that way convincing em to do what you want becomes a kind of game where you have to keep thinking of new ways to outsmart them (If we were keeping score I'd probably be losing badly).

Have you given any thought to whether or not you'll let her off lead?

tsrobodo, Tuesday, 13 August 2013 02:18 (8 months ago) Permalink

the off-leash thing is something we'll need to figure out. we have plans to put her/ourselves through a local training school that has a really good rep with nordic breeds. i know that some people believe huskies should never be off-leash in unfenced areas bc their instinct to wander is so strong. i don't think it's something we'll even consider till we've gone through the classes and had her at least a few months, and then we'll discuss it with the n0rsled people (they run a regular husky club meetup which is gonna be a great resource for us). neko's safety is my number one concern, and i don't want to risk her wandering off and getting lost or stolen or hit by a car - or attacking someone's small dog while they're out walking.

just1n3, Tuesday, 13 August 2013 03:13 (8 months ago) Permalink

solo IS awesome - but definitely not the right dog for a first-time husky owner, let alone a first-time dog owner.

just1n3, Tuesday, 13 August 2013 03:16 (8 months ago) Permalink

fwiw have definitely had some terrifying never-gonna-see-that-dog-again moments involving a beloved husky and the great outdoors. dude always came back eventually but it was def on his clock and like "hey guys what's up boy you sure were shouting a lot huh?"

resulting post (rogermexico.), Tuesday, 13 August 2013 03:21 (8 months ago) Permalink

Yeah I'm trying to canvass as much opinion as possible to get a general idea of why people decide either way. A few owners I met have said never, the behavioural specialist at the vet has two huskies and an Akita that are completely fine off the leash but she's practically a drill sergeant with them and I don't think I can (or would even want to) emulate that. The trainer I'm in contact with said he's never come across a husky that was incapable of being trained to always respond to recall, so I'm cautiously optimistic.

But then I guess the horror stories always ring the loudest in your head and the dogs safety is paramount. Norsled sounds like a really great organisation so I doubt they'd lead you astray in that regard.

yes i AM taking some satisfaction in knowing that getting new tenants is going to be way more stressful for her than just downloading and printing off a fucking pet lease agreement for us to sign (fyi we have been here about 3 years and never caused a problem). we made a tough call tonight after much discussion about what's best for us and also best for neko - we called our person at n0rsled and informed her of the situation, and said that we think she should start showing neko to other families, just in case we can't come through with a new place in the next month. she REALLY wants neko to go to us, even though this is the most adoptable dog ever (young, great manners, never ever barks), so she wants this to work out for us and is willing to help as much as possible.

fingers crossed we find something in the next week or two :/

You could try keeping a bell near your door at home, and ringing it when you take her outside. I don't know if Your work setup would allow, but maybe you could also set up a bell at the door, or keep one in your pocket? That way, after a few trips, she will equate the bell with the act of going outside and it may help her understand?

I don't know much about doggie house/office training, but I know that with cats, you really need to use an enzymatic cleaner like Nature's Miracle to truly get out the scent that keeps 'em coming back for more.

this always happens on the bed, and is worsened if she's told to get off the bed or the blankets are moved by us in anyway, e.g. if she's just lying on there, relaxed, and i try to straighten the covers, she immediately thinks it's violent play time. she scratched the shit out of my hand doing this this morning.

Got a strict no getting on beds policy with Max which is a shame but ultimately unavoidable(the only way I can be sure he wont pee on them, don't know why he still does this), was told Huskies can be very obstinate when it comes to beds if they develop attachments to them so that makes sense.

yeah she has a weird relationship to beds - before we brought her home, when we would spend weekends with her, we once brought her back to our old place and she was totally chill till she saw the bed then she went NUTS. it was the first time and it totally freaked me out!!

now i know it's playful dominance (her tail always wags but there's def a vibe of "look who's boss" going on). we have a night time routine where she is led in quietly at bedtime and she goes straight to her own bed, and never tries to get in with us during the night, but once she knows we're awake in the morning...

Oh man, there was this (or what appeared to be) a big adult/tiny puppy Bernese Mountain Dog duo I saw today. I nearly melted.
