Huskies and Carrots



There are many treats out there that are delicious for your husky and with their notoriously sensitive stomach a lot of those can create icky stools that have to be uncomfortable for your pup to deal with! Today I want to talk about all the benefits of giving them a tasty carrot as a treat!

First, can your husky even have carrots?? Absolutely! In moderation carrots offer lots of benefits for your siberian husky that you can both appreciate!

There are a few different ways that you can give carrots to your husky safely. Make sure however, that you are giving big ones, not baby carrots as you don’t want your canine companion to choke on them!

Luna Enjoying Her Carrot


1. Whole, fresh carrots

  • A peeled, fresh carrot offers your husky a good support for their dental health, helping to clean through the mechanical scraping of their teeth on the stick. It will scrape their teeith and help to prevent plaque build-up for better overall oral health. In this raw form, they won’t metabolize the nutrients in the carrot and it will come out looking the same way it did going in. It can keep them busy for a bit though and has a sweet taste that pups enjoy.

 

2. Steamed, fresh carrots

  • Steamed carrots are a bit softer for your husky, so they will be eaten more quickly. However in this form, the carrots offer the healthy nutrients that you want for your dog.  Beta-caratene can help support their eye health and Vitamin A can help with their immune, skin and coat health.

 

3. Chopped, steamed carrots

  • For the pup that doesn’t like chewing on carrot sticks, you can give them the healthy snack in their actual meals all chopped up so they get the benefit without having to worry about eating them plain.

Other benefits that carrots offer include regularity. They are high in fiber so as your husky enjoys eating them, they can actually add some bulk to their loose stools. They are low calorie and low fat, making them an ideal bonus treat when they are doing good puppy things! 
 
With my three dogs, the only one that actually likes the carrots whole and fresh is my husky, so I definitely recommend them for Siberian Husky owners!

Mastered Look at Me, on to Come!

After being successful at completing “Look at me,” consistently, I began working with her on the next one on my list, “Come.” Come is an extremely important command as with any dog that gets sidetracked or overexcited it can really help with resetting their behaviors.  Check out more at

Annie the Shepherd is  Luna my huskies pal, she is one of our favorite friends to have playdates with as she can keep up energy wise and is a lot of fun to watch. When it comes to noise though, she has a bark that can make your knees shake! Recently her doggy parents have been trying a new method of training using a sonic device and it seems to be working! Feel free to check out my thoughts on it!

Luna the Husky at McAllister Park San Antonio

Went to the park yesterday with my pal Luna the Husky. She likes to wander around and sniff for new pals to play with. Check out some photos of her adventure here! She even got teased by a deer on the other side of the fence at the back corner of the park before we left.  That deer had no idea that if Luna was super motivated she could probably clear the fence……

I got a video of her walking through the park too that is cute of course!

Ways to Help With Digging Huskies

Posted on Updated on


Ways to Help With Digging Huskies
 

So you caved and acquired an adorable, sweet, fluffy, energetic Siberian Husky. Now you can settle back and enjoy all the awesome benefits of having a canine companion to dote on your every move. 


san antonio, texas
Such a cute little innocent pup!
And just when you think you can have a break and relax, let them go outside and enjoy the fresh air, BAM, they are gone! Like a magician in the night, your little escape artist has gone to find some tasty rodent to attack! It is true that some huskies will never go and dig their way out of their yard to explore the world, but for the majority, digging is a thing. A constant thing. Also escaping. They get bored, they get lonely, they leave. So how can you convince your pup to stay put?? I have several suggestions that can keep your husky happy and at home where they belong! 


1.) Redirect their digging.
Digging much like their predator vibes is a major husky instinct. They need to dig. If you ask them why though, they will just stare at you with that adorable face covered in fresh dirt and laugh.
You can try building a sandpit (or filling a small pool/sandbox up) in your yard with some various tasty treats buried. This can redirect the digging in a positive way to a specific area, especially if you have extra space in your yard that you don’t mind sharing with them! There are several husky owners that I know who have adding a sandpit to be positive as it promotes their instinct and prevents them from having to be the “bad guy.” Just remember when using this method that you have to train them just like you do with other things like sit and don’t punish them when they think that digging everywhere is ok, just redirect with postive tasty treats (or bones, whatever type of bonus works for your pup).

2.) Constant supervision.
Rather than letting him free-range in your yard, go out and monitor his outdoor time with him, then when you see the digging start, you can redirect with a game, treat or a strong, “no.” This is actually what I have found to be most effective with my husky, although as she is a puppy still, I generally even keep her leashed so we stay on “potty” task. Her outdoor time consists of walks around the block, potty training in the yard, and free run time at the dog park we have nearby. Every once in awhile though we will spend 30 minutes or so working out that energy with zoomies across the backyard but I am always there to make sure she doesn’t start a bad behavior. This also helps to keep her from being bored because as her packmate I can keep her busy chasing things!

3.) Provide natural barriers.
Planting fast growing bushes around your fence line can often deter the digging and escaping behavior, although it does take some time to get the bushes big enough to distract from the fence and if your yard is small, this takes away from free range space too. This option is not at the top of my list as they will still sometimes feel that they need to dig around the bushes and then you are back to square one looking for a more effective method, but for some huskies they don’t like the feel of the bush roots so they will stop digging where the bushes are. It is really trial and error when it comes to finding what will work for your busy little pup.
Often times huskies will dig when bored so incorporating more activity into your schedule with them may work, a tired husky is a behaved one! Extra running time, extra dog park time, maybe even considering a doggy daycare or inhome puppy nanny can help to keep your husky from even wanting to dig! 

These are just a few suggestions, this husky site http://www.snowdog.guru/how-to-stop-your-husky-digging-up-the-yard/ has other helpful options that you can try out too!

5 Reasons To Get Your Husky A Friend

Posted on Updated on

5 Reasons To Get Your Husky A Friend

San Antonio, Texas
Annie and Luna Checking For Action

If you have ever had a husky or are new to the breed, you probably already know how high maintenance they are.  They are a pack dog and need constant activity to keep them from getting bored and finding their own entertainment! With Luna, my husky, we have found several different methods to stay busy and happy and today I am going to give you 5 reasons why a dog friend can be a fantastic option for your little pack pup.

1. Everything Is Better With a Friend
When it comes to all things, from running to sleeping, everything is always better with a friend! Your husky will love to wrestle and play all day long with a canine companion and that means less time you have to spend wrestling with them and more time that you spend enjoying the adorable antics of your pup! 

2. Socializing Can Help Keep Your Husky Healthy
There are so many benefits that a social pet has from being in better physical shape to actual mental stability. Having a canine friend can really help your husky to learn that it is ok to be friendly and have fun with others which means less fear in general and a pup without fear is fantastic. 

3. A Dog Friend Teaches Your Pup About Life
Having a friend will give your husky pup access to a whole new world of things to learn and they will watch their buddy closely to see which things they like and which things they don’t like.  For example, Luna has a friend Annie who would bark all the time to let Luna know she wanted to play. Luna picked up on the behavior, came home and started barking at her other little buddies to communicate the same way.  Now, this can be both good and bad, but if you pick the right friend for your dog, a well-behaved and wonderful pup, the good will always outweigh the bad! 

4. Sharing Food With A Friend Can Keep Your Pup From Food Aggression
Huskies can be very independent and head-strong, but having a friend to share a snack with gives you a chance to help show how sharing is caring.  Luna has no food aggression at all and will share her treats, snacks, food and even water with her buddy and her buddy is the same with her.

5. Having A Friend Keeps Huskies From Loneliness
Your husky is a pack dog and needs to have lots of action around. Having a buddy keeps them confident, happy and fulfilled and a happy husky is a husky who won’t tear up your brand new, expensive sofa! They are a lot like people in that respect though, and if you like to have friends, then certainly your canine companion would too! 

Having just one friend can make your pup a more well-rounded pet, but remember that with huskies socializing in general is very important.  This means walks around the neighborhood to meet all the squirrels, people and other pets that live out there.  Dog parks are also great, they give your pup some freedom to choose who they like and don’t like.  Just take your time with your pup and make sure that you are there to intervene if they get scared or nervous, as the pack leader you have to protect them from any aggression!

Luna the Husky and Her Benebone Toy

Posted on Updated on

Luna the Husky and Her Benebone Toy

So Luna got to try out a new toy that I have been wanting to get her as the advertisements all say it is comparable to an actual bone and is very durable.  This Benebone chew toy features a wishbone shape that is supposedly easy for dogs to chew while being made of materials that are dog safe and virtually indestructible. And as with any new toy, I gave Luna the 2 minute destruction challenge!  

The Benebone boasts a real bacon flavor that will have your dog wanting more, keeping them interested and with Luna my husky, it is important that I give her things that will occupy her time, or else she will find naughty ways to do so! The video of her chewing the toy was literally the first two minutes that she had access to it and that was just a couple days ago now.  At this moment, the bone does look like each of the ends has been chewed on, not too destroyed though and true to its advertising, it has definitely kept Luna busy in her uptime.


The bone does have an ergonomic design with a curve that makes it easy for Luna to push up whichever end she wants to chew on, so she isn’t getting aggravated that she can’t get a good grip on the toy.
With deep, texture grooves Luna can actually bite the toy the way she wants and the Benebone is made from nylon which means she isn’t immediately just busting through it like candy.
Too much time chewing on it I have found does give her a little tummy upset though, I am guessing the real bacon flavoring creates a bit of ickiness but she can manage about an hour or so and then she should have a break time anyhow.
Another benefit of this toy versus real bones is that even though it is infused with a natural bacon flavor, it doesn’t stink up the house and it also has not stained my furniture!
The Benebone itself has a decent size, but really shouldn’t be used by dogs who weight over 70 pounds as it isn’t really designed for the big ones. And as with any other toy, it is important that she only play with it while I am monitoring her, as small parts could break off and will need to be disposed of right away!  It is easy to forget that a chew toy is not an actual treat, so it really is not designed to be gobbled up!

Overall, I think this could be a great toy for a small to medium sized dog that enjoys chewing and likes bacon.
