Welcome to the DOG BLOG! Below are products we personally use and highly recommend.

Food

We free feed, meaning we leave food out for our dogs 24/7. Huskies are naturally a grazing breed, meaning they will eat when they are hungry and not overindulge. We find free feeding to be a great tool in preventing resource guarding and keeping our dogs a healthy weight.

Under 12 months:

We reccomend only feeding a vet formulated and approved food that has been tested in food trials for safety. Personally we use and recommend Eukanuba. We rotate the chicken medium breed and adult lamb for our adults. We will start the puppies on large breed puppy chicken but you can rotate with lamb as well if you'd like. If your dog is over 55lbs or expected to be over 55lbs as an adult, you should use the large breed formula over the medium breed formula.

Over 12 months:

Freeze Dried Treats

There are so many different types of freeze dried single ingredient treats that are very healthy for your pup. Some of these are hearts, liver, trachea, and gullets.

Fish Skins
Any type of fish skins or dried fish is healthy for your pup and they will absolutely love it. You can also feed canned or frozen oysters or sardines.

Bones/ Chews

Your dog can have pretty much any raw meat, bone, or fish, in fact it is some of the best things you can feed your dog(s)!

We do stay away from pork and any chicken raised with antibiotics or steroids. Raw bone is easily digestible and safe for your dog, however cooked or dehydrated bones typically are NOT. Some bones can be hard on their teeth so always keep an eye out for over wearing of the teeth.

Beef Spareribs

These bones are hardy and will last quite a while. They help keep teeth clean and the red meat is full of nutrients. They are messy however so feed in a crate or tiled area until the meat as been eaten. We find the best beef spareribs to be sold at Winco but most grocery stores carry them. 

Bully Sticks

Thick braided bully sticks are great for your keeping your puppy busy and are not hard on their teeth. The best place to bully sticks is bestbullysticks.com

Cow Hooves from Jones Natural Chews

Sardines, Mackerel, and Oysters

Canned Sardines, oysters, or Mackerel can be found at any grocery store and are a small fish with big benefits. These fish have lots of omega-3s and will keep your dogs skin and coat looking great.You can usually find whole frozen fish at asian markets. 

Supplements

Supplements are always optional and are dependent upon each dogs individual needs however these are some supplements we have used or our currently using that have positively benefited our dogs.

Zinc Picolinate (Nurticost Brand)

Some arctic breeds do not get enough zinc from commercial dog food diets due to evolving on raw and will experience symptoms from a lack of zinc. These symptoms are usually hair loss around the eyes, mouth, or nose. In more serious cases, some dogs experience seizures. To solve this issue the dog must be supplemented with zinc. Each dog can react to zinc types differently, however, most dogs do best on Zinc Picolinate.  

Kennels/ Crates

Plastic Kennel

Any brand of plastic kennel should work as long as it is not a flimsy plastic. Some good brand name plastic kennels are Vari and petmate. We never recommend wire kennels as they are easy to break out of, can be dangerous to your dog, allow the dog to pull items through the crate or destroy things near/ under the crate. Dogs tend to feel more safe and secure in a plastic kennel since it is dark and enclosed.

For a more secure and lifelong lasting crate, Impact crates are amazing and sure to see your dog safe.

Harnesses/ Collars/ Leashes

7137TolIxAL._SL1000_.jpg

No Pull Harness With Front and Back Clip

Poypet on Amazon is a good brand for these harnesses. The front clip is great for keeping your dog from pulling and the back clip is great for pulling. Our dogs use these for both walks and pulling us on bikes, skateboards, scooters, etc. Please do not have your puppy pull you until at least 1 year of age as it can be bad on their joints before then. Do not use harnesses that go across the chest to restrict shoulder movement as these can also damage joints. Always add a tag to your dogs harness just in case.

We find these to be the most durable, easy to wash (machine washable, and comfortable to use.

Grooming

Furminator Rake Brush

Great for long haired dogs. It easily pulls out undercoat. This brush does not work well for shorter haired dogs. Make sure you buy the rake brush and not the furminator with the blade on it as it will cut your dog's fur.
