For starters, your music needs to be in Apple’s Music app on your iPhone before it can sync to Apple Watch. This includes songs added from Apple Music, purchased from iTunes, and even music you’ve added from other sources as long as it’s in the iPhone Music app. Music from third-party services like Spotify and Tidal won’t sync to Apple Watch yet.
Apple Watch can’t stream music over the Internet like iPhones so the music needs to be downloaded and synced like back in the iPod days. Apple Watch has a limit of 250 songs or 2 GB which you can change in the Watch app on iPhone under Music → Storage Limit. The Watch app on iPhone is also where you will set which music to sync. You can only sync one playlist at a time, however, so you may want to create a new playlist of music that you want to sync ahead of time. Otherwise you can go to the Watch app on iPhone and find Music → Synced Music to select a playlist.
Nov 2, 2018 - The last three contests the Huskies have allowed an average gain of just 1.4. Scoring a TD and getting Akron to within three points in his two plays. NIU is now the fourth MAC squad to become bowl eligible, joining. Game against Toledo will go a long way to seeing in the Huskies will make it to Detroit.
My preference is to create a playlist called Apple Watch and add music to it specifically for syncing to Apple Watch. This is a workaround for the limitation of only being able to sync a single playlist and not multiple albums or playlists.
Shawhan felt that his team was able to play the way they needed to to be successful. (Saturday) night is that the guys that we needed to come and play (did and) we got a great contributions from Gavin. We need them to play well for us if we’re going to have long-range success and to play with the teams that we’re going to have to. Huskies have an ability to jump high fences from a standing position - an almost springbok like action. A three to four foot high fence is not going to keep them in. Further, the bottom of the fence should be fairly close to the ground. Siberian Huskies will see gaps as opportunities to dig under and get out. These dogs are amazing escape artists.
You can create a new playlist from the Music app on iPhone by going to Library → Playlist → New Playlist where you can give your playlist a name like ‘Apple Watch’ (or WATCH) in my case) followed by an optional description, artwork, and public or private status. From here you can tap Add Music to pick songs and albums to add to your playlist. You can even pull from multiple existing playlists (just keep the song count or storage amount in mind). You can also add music to your playlist after you create it from your library when browsing songs, albums, and artists. Once your playlist is set, head back to the Watch app on iPhone and find Music → Synced Music to select your new playlist. You can update your playlist from your iPhone at any time to change your selection too. Just keep in mind that music won’t sync from iPhone to Apple Watch instantly.
Syncing music from iPhone to Apple Watch happens over Wi-Fi when your Apple Watch is charging, and your selected playlist will need to download to your iPhone (which happens automatically after being selected) before it can sync the downloaded music to Apple Watch. If you don’t want to create you own playlist for Apple Watch, Apple Music members can optionally subscribe to playlists that have already been curated.
For example, Nike has a nice selection of that updates periodically, and Apple Music’s New Music Mix and For You Mix can be synced (one at a time) to Apple Watch and update weekly. Once you get your music synced to Apple Watch, you need a way to play it. Apple Watch has a low volume speaker for alerts and phone calls, but Apple doesn’t allow you to play music from it. You’ll need to pair wireless headphones over Bluetooth for music playback. Apple’s work great, and and the BeatsX earphones have the same W1 chip that makes pairing instant, but will work.
AirPods and other W1 earphones should pair with Apple Watch automatically after being paired with iPhone, but other Bluetooth audio needs to be manually paired the first time. Once your Bluetooth headphones are in pairing mode, click the Digital Crown on Apple Watch to find the app launcher, then swipe around to the Settings icon which looks like a gear.
Go to Settings → Bluetooth → Devices to find your headphones. Tap the headphones label to prompt pairing. From there, you can swipe up from the watch face to find the AirPlay icon at the bottom of Control Center where you can select your headphones. Apple Watch will require wireless audio to be paired before playing local music from the Music app too. Click the Digital Crown on Apple Watch, then swipe around to the Music app which matches the same app on iPhone. After launching Music on Apple Watch, swipe down to reveal the source toggle that lets you choose to play music from Apple Watch rather than iPhone.
Once you make a selection, Apple Watch will prompt you to select an audio source if you haven’t already. From here you can use a fitness app like the Workouts app or to track a workout while playing music directly from Apple Watch without having to strap an iPhone to your arm. Mapping outdoor runs from Apple Watch Series 2 while listening to synced music over AirPods is a far better experience for me than running with an iPhone in my hand or in an arm band. Syncing music to Apple Watch could definitely be a simpler experience in the future, but creating a dedicated playlist for now is probably the best solution for most people.
I currently share my life with two Siberian Huskies – puppy Lara (7 months old) and Shania (3.5 years old). Both of them are very silly, and very energetic.
They love to play, explore, and hunt for earth critters. Siberian Huskies are beautiful dogs who love people and love life. They can be great family dogs if properly trained. However, because of their high energy and high prey drive, they require a lot of daily exercise and are not to be trusted off leash. When bored, a Husky may chew, dig, and escape to look for adventure elsewhere.
Before, find out all you can about the – the good, the bad, and the quirky. Siberian Huskies – The Good 1.
Siberian Huskies are love bugs. Sibes are very affectionate dogs. They are especially friendly with people, even strangers. Husky Shania has very many friends in our neighborhood and she enjoys going to say hello to them every day. Her most favorite friend in the world is the Awesome Cookie Guy. Whenever we pass his house, Shania always stops and waits.
When her Cookie friend spots her and comes out, he comes bearing gifts – a yummy low-fat cookie for Shania! Shania also comes to me when I am sad or upset. She will lie down next to me or lay her head on my lap and give me licks. The people trusting nature of Siberian Huskies make it easy to find caretakers for them when I get busy, or when I need to leave on emergencies or vacations.
Sibes love meal-time. Lara and Shania are frequently on the go. They enjoy re-landscaping our backyard, attacking bushes, pulling down trees, running, jumping, and digging.
They both enjoy playing chasing games and are always ready to go out for a walk and explore. They get very excited whenever anybody comes to visit and enjoy spending play-time and rest-time with their pack. As part of their zesty life program, Huskies also love to eat. Both Lara and Shania will eat and eat and continue to eat more if they can. To keep them healthy and slim, I set up a fixed eating schedule and only give them their allotted amount of food. If I give them treats, then I reduce their regular meals a bit so that they keep a fairly constant caloric intake.
Sibes are not shy about stealing food or begging for food. Both Lara and Shania will steal each other’s food if they can. They will also steal from my other dog, Shiba Inu Sephy. I always supervise them closely during meal-times.
Food stealing can encourage food aggression, so I train my dogs not to steal and teach them that if there is any stealing, I will handle the situation. Siberian Huskies can also get impatient about food and may get slightly overzealous when taking food out of your hand. Reward Training Sibes are smart and will quickly learn new commands and figure out interactive toy puzzles; especially when food is on the line. Lara learned how to Sit on command as soon as we got her home (8 weeks old). In fact, if we use positive reinforcement techniques, we can start obedience training puppies However, puppies should not be removed from the litter until they are at least 8 weeks old. With clever and independent dogs like the Siberian Husky, it is most effective to use reward training techniques. I teach my Huskies that the best way to get what they want is to do what I want first.
Sibes will do good work for food. If they want to go play in the backyard, they must first do a simple Sit next to the door. If they want their food toy, they must first do a Handshake. If they dig where they are not supposed to in the backyard then they lose their backyard privileges. Since we control all of our dog’s resources, we can encourage good behaviors and discourage bad behaviors by tying those behaviors to our dog’s most desired resources. With reward training my Sibes are always motivated to work.
They are never hand-shy and love being with people. Siberian Huskies have a wonderful independent spirit, so we should not shock them, choke them, or physically dominate them into submission. Sibes blow their coat once or twice a year. During this time they will shed most of their undercoat and replace it with new fur. Frequent brushing will help to control some of this shedding and keep our Husky comfortable and clean. Even though they may only blow their coat twice a year, Sibes actually shed all year round. There is Sibe fur everywhere in our house, including carpets, tile floor, counters, tables, chairs, blankets, and beds.
Hair can also get onto kitchen utensils, food, and drinks. Another issue to consider is pet allergies. Many people are allergic to dog or cat hair. Although Siberian Huskies have little doggy smell and are not one of the most allergy-causing breeds, a serious pet dander allergy of a family member should have you reconsidering a dog for your choice of pet. Because they shed so much, try to make brushing and handling fun for your Husky. I always pair brushing sessions with food so that it becomes a fun and rewarding experience.
I start with a soft brush and slowly switch over to using the Furminator which is awesome at getting out a dog’s undercoat. Sibes may look wild and fierce, but they make awful guard dogs. Sibes look wild, like wolves.
For this reason, many people think that they make fierce guard dogs. In truth, however, a Husky is more likely to invite strangers into your home with open paws and give them many licks. Siberian Huskies are happy, goofy, and naturally trust all the people that they see.
My Siberians may sometimes make a fuss when people are at the door, but it is out of excitement rather than a warning cry. Also, my Siberians will happily follow anyone home as long as they have some yummy pieces of food. Husky Shania is a very accomplished huntress.
When we first got our backyard landscaped, we had a big Earth Critter Attack. There are a fair number of rodents including gophers, voles, and mice that live in our area and they decided to throw a big party on our newly planted grass. Holes were appearing everywhere and the organic scent-based pest control we used did not seem to have much of an effect. We were worried that our yard would not even last the year but then huntress Shania went into action. After a few days of hunting and marking, we noticed that the Rodent Gang had moved their party location somewhere else!
However, this high prey drive also makes it extremely risky to let a Sibe go off-leash in a non-enclosed space. If she spots a deer or squirrel, she will be gone and away before you can shout Stop. Siberian Huskies are very athletic and can cover large distances in a fairly short amount of time.
High prey drive also means that a Husky will have a strong instinct to chase and hunt cats and possibly also small dogs. The easiest way to leash train a Siberian Husky is to start when they are young and still small. Sibes were bred to pull sleds, and today, they still love to PULL! One of the biggest challenge with my Huskies is teaching them how to walk without pulling and/or to only pull on command. Is to start when she is young and still small. I have tried a variety of techniques with my dogs and what has worked best are the red-light,green-light technique and the 180-turn-around technique. I started leash training puppy Lara almost as soon as we got her.
First I trained her in our backyard. After she was fully vaccinated, I started leash training her around our neighborhood.
While leash training a Sibe, it is very important to be totally consistent. I stop as soon as puppy Lara starts to pull and if she pulls too much, I turn around and walk in the opposite direction. This teaches her that the fastest way to get to where she wants to go is to walk along with me at a measured pace. Siberian Huskies love to sing. Sibes have a great singing voice.
However, neighbors may not particularly enjoy it when Siberians decide to sing or howl to the moon. Husky Lara is a very vocal dog.
She barks when excited, frustrated, scared, and sometimes when other dogs are barking. I have to spend more time and effort training her to stay quiet because her natural instinct is to vocalize. Husky Shania is a more quiet dog. She almost never barks and the only time she vocalizes is when she is playing with my other dogs. She also sings beautifully when she hears a squeaky toy. My Husky breeder tells me that there are some Sibe bloodlines that are more noisy than others.
Lara’s mother, for example, comes from a more vocal bloodline. Siberian Huskies like being with people and they also need something to do. Sibes are very energetic and affectionate. They like being with people and they also need something to do. Otherwise, they will get bored and get into at least 10 kinds of trouble. All my dogs work for all of their food, either through obedience exercises, grooming sessions, play sessions, or through In addition, they go for 1.5 hour daily walks and wrestle with each other several times a day.
Sometimes, I join in on the fun and play flirt pole or the water hose game with them. When bored or lonely, a Husky will figure out her own activities, which may lead to property damage or escape expeditions. Do not get a dog, especially a Siberian Husky, unless you have a lot of free time to spend with her.
If you must work long hours, consider dog daycare or hiring a dog walker. Sibes do best when there are many interesting activities throughout the day and frequent human supervision. Congratulations on your new husky puppy! “How can I teach her to be gentle with smaller dogs?” Yeah both my Sibes also like to play rough. When I first got puppy Lara, I kept her on a leash (only with flat collar) while she was playing with my other dogs. This helps to keep excitement under control, and it also allowed me to stop her from playing too rough with my tripod dog Shania.
Every time she is too rough, I non-mark her (Ack-ack) and stop play. Then she has to do some obedience commands before play continues. I still supervise my dogs during play and have lots of small breaks in-between so that things don’t get too energetic.
Here is more on my experiences with introducing a new dog to my other dogs- As for recall training, what seems to work with my Sibes is to start small and then reward them really well when they come to me. I make sure they know I have some good food, then I just move one step away, call to them, make a bunch of noise, and move a lot. This will usually get puppy excited and want to move toward me. When she does, I make a big deal of it, and treat her very well. Sometimes I also play a fun game with her. A common mistake that people make with recall training, is that they will call their dog to them and then punish him, or forcibly put him in his crate. This teaches a dog to stay away rather than come to us.
To get my dogs to come, I try to make sure that the recall command is always associated with something very positive, fun, and rewarding. Hugs to Jade!
Hello Melissa, 1. Biting – What has helped with my Sibe puppies is bite inhibition training. Puppies usually start learning this from their mom and siblings.
This is one of the reasons why breeders generally keep puppies together until they are about 8 weeks old. At the same time, I also teach them not to bite on people. Here is what I do – 2. Potty training A big part of potty training depends on what the puppy is used to at the breeders house.
Some breeders potty train their puppies, some let puppies go on puppy pads, and sometimes, puppies are just left with their business without clean-up. The last group will take more effort to potty train.
With my Sibe puppy Lara, supervision was really very important. I had to supervise her all the time when she is roaming around the house. If I don’t have time to supervise, I tether her in the kitchen.
As soon as it looks like she is about to go, I take her outside. If she starts to go, I interrupt her and take her outside for her to finish. Then I praise her a lot, treat her, and play a really fun game with her.
With puppy Lara, I found that she really needs to pee after short amounts of play-time. I usually take them out after about 10-15 minutes of play. I also take her out when she wakes up. When she has been outside for a while and wants to come in, I usually take her to her potty spot first, and remind her to potty, just in case she needs to. Then she comes in. Here is more on my potty training experiences- 3.
Food Aggression It is important to train a puppy not to be food aggressive. My Sibes are very food focused so I did a fair amount of food exercises with them when they were puppies. Here are a few extra things that helped me a lot while bringing up a puppy. We recently got a Husky puppy. She was six weeks when we got her and we have had her for just over 4 weeks. I have several concerns. 1: I have 3 kids.
They are 12, 3, and 6 months. Our puppy Kovey is extremely aggressive with them and us. She constantly bites and to be honest she has drawn blood, even on our 6 month old. I have told her “no” sternly, but she just doesn’t stop.
My 3 year old is to the point that he is scared of her and I am getting extremely frustrated. We can’t even pet her with out her growling and lunging for our faces and hands. She will not get house broken. I understand that we’ve only had her for a short time and that its not going to happen over night but what I don’t understand is, she will be outside playing for a half hour and the minute she comes in she makes a mess. Also, she will go 4 or 5 times in a very short amount of time. She does not attempt to let us know that she has to go and only whines after its done. Once again, I tell her thats naughty and I usually put her back outside but sometimes I put her in her kennel for a few minutes.
She does not like to be by herself and I was hoping that she would put the two together. 3: When she is eating, if my kids even go by her, she starts to growl.
I guess what im asking is if I need to worry about my children? I realized that I should’ve researched Husky dogs but I went off of the word of the person I bought her from.
What do we do to stop the biting and how do we get her house trained? Are they normally house trained by 10 weeks? I have no idea what we’re doing wrong. When she does go outside I make sure I reward and tell her she what a good dog she is. Also,Im concerned that the bigger she gets the more aggressive she is going to be and the harder she is going to bite. Obviously my kids are my first priority and I need to make sure they are going to be safe. My husband tells she is just being a puppy and she will grow out of it, but im not so sure.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much! “how to teach a Siberian to give paw? What gestures should I do and when should I reward?” With puppy Lara I first got her to do a Sit. Then, I just said “Paw” and then lifted her paw.
Then I praise and treat. I repeat this a few times. Then I say “Paw” and just put my hand there next to her paw, but I don’t lift it. If she lifts the paw on her own, I make a really really big deal out of it, and give her a big bonus reward. Then I repeat a few more times and do something else before she gets bored. If she does not lift the paw after a certain duration, then I go back to lifting the paw and reinforcing the behavior with rewards. I make sure to stop before she gets bored so that she is always interested in working and doing commands.
Hello Nadia, Congratulations on your new Sibe puppy! In terms of the eating, what seems to work well with all my dogs is to make them work for all of their food.
I use their regular kibble rations for obedience training, grooming, play, and socialization. If there is food left over, I put them in interactive toys so they have to work for that too. Interactive toys are great because it not only exercises a dog mentally, but it also controls the speed at which they can eat the food. Here are some of my experiences with interactive food toys- Frozen Kongs are good, and I also like the Premier Busy Buddy toys. Always be careful to supervise and make sure the toy is safe and not a choking hazard. Hello Jennifer, “As in, do they need constant supervision while at home? Or can you off and do your own thing for a bit?” With Shania and Lara, I can definitely do my own thing.
As long as they get a nice walk every day (I am currently walking them for about 1.5 hours), they are pretty good about keeping themselves occupied for most of the day. During puppy-hood though, I had to keep a much closer eye on them.
I have a section in the backyard that is not landscaped, and they dig there for earth critters. They also play chasing games with each other, and sometimes I throw some kibble for them and they have fun searching for it in bushes, etc. They also have chew toys outside, and they will also pull down branches from trees and bushes to chew on.
I am usually home, so I look in on them from time to time. Sometimes they catch a mouse or bird, and I don’t really want them eating it. Otherwise, I have left them home alone for about 2-3 hours at a time.
I did not do this until puppy Lara got a bit older, bigger, and a bit calmer. I am probably more on the “helicopter-parent” side though. 😀 Part of this is because Shania is a three legged dog so I want to make sure the other two dogs do not overwhelm her. I currently got a 7 week old Siberian. She is about 9 weeks now and you are very correct about commands she learned them in the first 5 tries with reward and now she does them without reward. I have a concern with eating.
I have a weimeraner and I use to have another one and he ate too fast and his stomach flipped and he passed away, because of how energetic he was. Also he would growl at us if we came near him while eating. When I got my second one we played in her food when she was a puppy while eating and now she is very relaxed and calm about us in and near her food. My concern is with my Siberian. I try to play in her food but she gets nippy.
And if I’m in her food or not she eats incredibly fast and then wants to play after. From bad expierence this scares me, I can control playing after but how do I control the eating so aggressively? I also have cats and if they did that we just put large rocks in the food bowl that couldnt be swallowed and that worked. Is there any technique to help with a dog though? I wish i knew all of this before i got eddie lol and i got him from the worst place i got him from a pet store i know i know but i felt like i saved him because he was in a tiny little cage and he was 4 months old, but hes been great and the love that he gives us its as he if knows.
But in the beginning the first time i left him alone (i dont believe in cages, so he roamed about)he tore my couch apart, but hes come a long way from that. I feel like huskies are so smart but they are so stobborn that we sometimes dont notice. They are sneeks too i cant tell you what i found under his blanket lol he hate being brushed and i couldnt find it and sure enough the little jerk face hid it on me. Hello Shibashake, I am on my 4th Siberian.
My 1st two were brothers, six months apart. The 1st (Kinzan) died at 12 yrs old of spleenic sarcoma. My second, Sasha, died in my arms at 15 1/2 – It was his time.
I was trying to take him to the vet and I didn’t make it. My 3rd, Layla (my only female), I had to put down at about 10-11 years old in Feb 2010. I think she had a stroke over Xmas 2009. The vet wanted to put her down right away and I held off for two months. Layla’s blue eyes were gorgeous. Very sweet temperment.
I’ve had Dosha since Labor Day 2010 – he might have some mix in him, but he’s almost all white with 1 blue and 1 brown eye. I rescued him from someone who had to move into an apt.
I really liked the fact that she had a 4 year old boy. So Dosha (now 3 yrs old) has grown up with kids, which I wanted. Loves people, I call him my doorbell. Tells me every night between 9 pm and Midnight that it’s walk time. When I need to calm him down for whatever reason, I just pick him up (all 60 lbs) and he just settles down in my arms for a minute.
Whenever anyone comes over (and since I work from home, I get a lot), he’s there to greet everyone. I just need to get him from jumping up on everyone and saying hi. To anyone considering a Siberian – great family dog, relatively clean (except for the shedding – Hi my name is Shedding Dog); best antidepressant I could ever come up with – be aware of the negative – needs exercise, large backyard, lousy guard dog, hates cats – but their zest for life holds no bounds; you won’t go wrong.
Hello Roldan, The amount I feed my Sibe is based on the type of food, age, and also on weight. Usually, I use the amount it says on the kibble/food packaging as a general guideline. As for frequency of feeding, I distribute my Sibe puppy’s food throughout the day for obedience exercises, grooming, playing, etc. What is left over I make into frozen Kongs – which are very useful for getting my Sibe puppy to calm down before taking a nap. From talking to my breeder, she recommends feeding puppies at least 3 times a day. Once puppy grows up, this can be reduced to 2 times a day – which is what I do with my adult dogs.
Hello Cian, It sounds good to me. With my Sibes, as long as they get regular walks and play time they are pretty happy. I take them out for about 1.5-2 hours daily. Be aware though that puppies are susceptible to diseases that may be passed through dog poop, other animal poop, contaminated water, etc. I only started walking my puppy Lara around the neighborhood after she was fully vaccinated. Before that I did leash training with her in the backyard and also in puppy class. Also, both my Sibes really love to dig, so if you have prize plants or prize roses in the backyard, they may need to be fenced up.
🙂 Where are you planning to get your Husky from? Hello CShea, “do sibes do well indoors?
Are they happy/comfortable inside?” It depends to some degree on age of the Sibe, individual temperament, temperature, as well as type and length of activity. My Sibes are not as active in the summer time, and like being in the house when it is hot outside.
During the winter, they enjoy being outside more of the time. Also, Sibe puppies are a lot more active and will require more activity, play time, and off-lead time in an enclosed space. With my current Sibe puppy Lara, she usually comes in the house to play with my other dogs.
She will also sleep in the house for a few hours after our daily walk. At night, she sleeps in the house for about 8 hours. Other than that, she likes being outside prowling around, digging, etc. My adult Sibe (over 4 years old) stays in the house for much longer periods of time. After our morning walk, she is happy to rest and relax in the house until afternoon time.
The key thing is that Siberians do love to run. With my Sibes, as long as they get enough running time in an enclosed space, as well as their on-leash daily walk, they are happy to be inside the house. Hello Roldan, “he poops inside our house and when i want to walk with her she’s not going after me” Here are some of my potty training experiences- I would also consider taking her to the vet for her vaccination shots and a quick exam to make sure she is physically healthy.
It may take a while before puppy understands the routine in the house and what is expected of her. After some reward training and good quality time spent together, she will soon be following you around. 🙂 Congratulations on your new Siberian Husky puppy! Hello Stephanie, In general, when my puppy bites, I try to stay calm and not move around too much.
Motion is very exciting to a puppy, so fast hand movement will likely get puppy even more hyper. With my puppy Lara, I first started with bite inhibition training. This trains a dog to control the force of her bites which is a very useful skill. Then, after Lara has good bite inhibition, I train her stop biting. When she bites, I non-mark her (No or Ack, ack) and get her to do something else (e.g. Bite on a toy or do some other command).
If she ignores me and continues, then I withdraw my attention by standing by, folding my arms, and turning away from her. If she stops biting, then I reward her by giving her attention again. If she does not stop, and keeps jumping and biting at my clothes, then I say timeout and take her to a quiet timeout area for a short amount of time. Here are a couple of articles on my puppy biting experiences- Congratulations on your new Sibe puppy! Both my Sibes also love to lick faces and do chin nibbling. Hello Steven, Yeah, they can be trained to only dig in certain areas.
Huskies Have Come Long Way To Play For Mac Free
For example, my backyard has a portion that is landscaped with nice grass, and then a back portion that is wild. Both my Huskies are trained not to dig in the nice grass area. However, the training does require a fair amount of supervision, especially initially. In general, I would stay outside with my Sibe puppy.every time. she goes out.
If she tries to dig, I non-mark her and get her to do something else. If she ignores me and tries to dig anyway, she loses her backyard privileges (she has to come back in the house.) Consistency is key and it takes a fair amount of time and effort because we must “catch them in the act”. If we are not there when they are doing the digging, then scolding them afterward will not do anything because they will not know which behavior they are being scolded for. As I understand it, a Husky’s markings are based on the dog’s parents (it is based on genetics). Some breeders may breed for specific types of markings, but the Siberian Husky conformation standard does not require a particular marking pattern (i.e., all markings are acceptable).
In terms of function, I am not sure if there is any. A wolf’s coat helps with camouflage, so our domestic dogs have inherited some of that. “Domestic dogs often display the remnants of countershading, a common natural camouflage pattern.” In terms of health, coloring and markings do not play a big role, if any. “Color breeding while fascinating and exasperating, is the least important factor in the production of high quality animals.
Hello Jad, Yeah my Sibe also wants to chase small dogs especially if the small dog is moving a lot and running. One thing that helped when I got a new puppy was that I put the small dog on a leash when she was together with my Sibe. That way I can keep the small dog with me and when my Sibe comes over I can teach her to be gentle and not overwhelm puppy. Here are some of the other things that I do to help my dogs get along at home – I also visited several professional trainers when I first got my dogs. A trainer can observe the dogs and see what is triggering particular behaviors – whether the bite is in play or something else. In terms of my Husky’s coat, I don’t do too much. I just brush it regularly with a Furminator, and that is enough to remove undercoat and keep it clean.
Flaxseed oil or fish oil can also help improve dry or dull coat, but I would do some research on it first and consult with a vet before adding anything to a dog’s diet.
