I Need A Home For The Holidays!
Diesel
Diesel

 

Diesel is 16 months old and weights about 60 pounds. He's a sweet dog who craves attention and loves to be right next to his human at all times. Diesel loves to play fetch and wrestle with other dogs. Like most huskies, he will get into mischief if left alone so crating him while you're gone is a must. If you would like more information about Diesel please contact his foster mom at amieinto@yahoo.com

Akira

 
Akira is full of husky spirit and looking to become part of an active home. She is very affectionate and loves to give doggie kisses. Akira would do best with someone that has breed experience. A secure fenced-in yard is a must. She is special needs because she has seizures but they are controlled with inexpensive medication. Akira is available for adoption through Paws and Prayers. If you are interested in Akira, please fill out an adoption application. It does not obligate you to adopt her but it will allow her foster home to contact you.

Hi Everyone,


 

I hope everybody had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enough turkey to last you at least until Christmas ! As the winter approaches I am excited to think of all of the upcoming events, this is truly our season. From the sled dog demo to the holiday get togethers to the races at Punderson in January, it is a fantastic time to be a husky owner. This is when our dogs shine and get to do what they were bred for. We will post stories, pictures and any husky antics so send it to me at tinacarpenter44@gmail.com . Happy Holidays everyone and we will see you next year!

Crown Classic Dog Show
Cleveland I-X Center

 

Showing dogs is a great sport where the thrill of competition is combined with the joy of seeing beautiful dogs. A dog show is a great place to meet over 150 breeds and varieties of dogs recognized by the AKC and talk to people who really know their breed.

From The Trainer........Beggingbegging husky

 

Begging is one of the most common problems Siberian Husky owners face. It is also one of the easist to correct with a little willpower on your part. Here are some tips.

1. Do not give your dog food ; seems like common sense right, but then they look at you with those big baby blues and do the husky whine/talk and the next thing you know your caving in.

2. Ignore it ; begging is attention seeking behavior, ignoring it teaches the dog that it does not work.

3. Don't feel sorry for your dog ; he is very well fed and if he is working harder you may need to increase his food intake. If in doubt, consult your vet.

4. Be consistent ; as with any dog training consistency is the key to success. Make sure you and your family members do it 100% of the time.

5. Be patient ; few dogs change overnight. Stay consistent and don't give up and in the end you will have a better behaved dog.

6. Kong toys ; I stuff my dogs Kong with his holiday meal, a few pieces of turkey ,gravy, grreen beans, a dab of sweet potatoes and a few raw baby carrots wedged in keeps him busy while we enjoy our meal.

As 2010 comes to a close my wish for 2011 is that people will come to understand and appreciate what a wonderful breed the Siberian Husky is. That more people will open their homes to foster Siberians in need, until they can find their forever homes . That each year we get more and more volunteers to continue and expand the success of the Husky Hike. As the SHCGC and Adopt A Husky continue to grow, I believe it is possible with this dedicated group of people.I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year !


 

Sincerely,


Tina Carpenter
