I have been running round like a looney all weekend, as we have adopted a female Siberian Husky. She's about 12-18 months, so a little bit of growing left to do.

I was just wondering, as this isn't really appropiate for the other lists, if anyone has any tips from their own pets, the best way to get them in and out of the car? And whether you put them on the back seat or in the boot? We both have three doors Pug, so if it's back seat what the trick to getting them in the back easy?

I'd always put them in the boot - have a dog guard fitted too. This will keep them in place, as the last thing you want is them getting a little lively if they see something they like and jumping around - it will only end up distracting you

nice dog, i too have a siberian husky and also a rhodesian ridgeback cross staffy...both a handfull

the husky is more tempremental on both my side and hers...fur! fur and more effing fur all over the effing place! so boot i would say to save your seats.

never let the husky of the lead as they will dash, although if you run the other way they will chase you! had to do this several times on south shields beach.

they sometimes wont eat all or any of the food, especially when on heat. we havnt had our neutured yet as we are wanting to breed from her.

but in your car defo get a rubber mat, easy to clean from dog fur and mud. a cage thing to stop them climbing the back seats and getting to you. oh and also keep the back wiper going and using wash every now and again, dogs find that fascinating...then again so do i sometimes...

they like their cuddles aswell and stealing food such as kebabs and pizza...never never trust them with food...

oh and make sure your back garden is very very secure, they like to escape and bolt...get some chicken wire fence, dig about a foot around the fence perimetre and bury the bottom of the fence...stops them digging under the fence.

also be prepared to piss yourself laughing when a bird, such as seagull/pigeon/crow etc lands in your garden, your husky will catch it, pin it to the floor, break its neck and eat the damned thing or bring it in the house for a pressie...we now dont have crows or pigeons near our house! great for my car

has yours learnt to talk (howl) at you yet?

Heres few useless advices:

How i transport mine, sometimes i just let him pretend to be a parrot


Sometimes i stack them, to save space.


And other times id just bundle them up if i dont have time to fold them properly for transport


*yep, im a crazy cat person.

my gf does the same. didnt even have to train her to do that.

i used to have a caucasian shepherd, very very huggable, and very hungry. all. the. freakin. time.


^generic caucasian puppy

she died when i got into highschool, never had a chance to get a new puppy eversince as i used to move alot and got really busy with work, so i've been sticking with kitties. but i like just about any kind of animal. even had a pet spider i found in a rental car, named him george.

Use treats to start with cheese or chicken show them the treat and make sure they know its in the boot just keep at it use a word as well so gets to know like in or up takes time.
