Luna the Husky and Her Benebone Toy

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.

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!

How to Keep a Husky Coat Healthy Using Coconut Oil

Posted on Updated on

How to Keep a Husky Coat Healthy Using Coconut Oil
 
One thing about living here in Texas is that if the humidity isn’t making it hard to breathe, the heat is drying every bit of natural moisture out of your skin possible. With the heat being so tough on humans, I can only imagine how hard it has to be on my husky Luna who is covered in lots and lots of hair!

If your husky has dry skin, there are many things that can be done to help them out, this article is about how coconut oil can benefit them. Because some huskies do have skin problems, it is important to be prepared should your little pup show signs of discomfort. Coconut oil is a good solution for dogs, with natural properties that will provide lasting results.



There are a lot of benefits that coconut oil can provide for your dog starting with their skin and coat.

It can clear up eczema while relieving flea allergy flair ups, dermatitis and itchy skin.  Coconut oil can actually minimize doggy odor, which is not a big deal as most huskies tend to be low odor anyhow. It will leave your pups coat looking sleek and glossy too. When put on externally, coconut oil can actually help heal wounds, hot spots, bites and stings too!

Another benefit of coconut oils is that they can actually improve your huskies digestive system.  It helps pups to absorb nutrients, keeping them healthier. Coconut oil can help relieve symptoms related to colitis and inflammatory bowel syndrome as well. It will reduce bad breath and also help calm chronic coughing issues. 
Adding some coconut oil to your huskies diet can assist with weight loss, balance insulin and promote a healthy thyroid function too.  It will help to prevent infection and disease, making it an ideal addition to your pups diet. 
For storage, the coconut oil should not be refrigerated, it will get hard if kept there. Keeping the coconut oil at room temperature will keep it solid enough to work with yet pliable too.
There are a couple ways that you can provide coconut oil safely for your pet. To address the dry, flaky skin issues you can actually apply the oil straight to your huskies coat and skin. Just take a small amount, and rub it right into their fur. 

For the other added dietary benefits you can add coconut oil to their food as a supplement. Be sure to start them off with small doses and work up to a regular amount or they could get diarrhea or greasy stools.  

1/4 teaspoon for pups and small dogs is an ideal amount to begin with and work up to about 1 teaspoon per 10 pounds of body weight a day. 

So if you are wanting to ensure that your husky has a healthy coat and soft skin, no matter what weather conditions you live in, try giving them some coconut oil!!!
