    Hi there!

    We have a male Alusky who is a little over 6 months old. He has been gaining roughly 10lbs each month and is now at 70lbs already. My husband and I are just wondering how big he may get?

      Hi Shateka,
      Since a pup usually undergoes the rapid growth phase until he is 6 months of age, it seems like your dog is about his normal weight. Keep in mind that a full-grown Alusky can weigh up to 100lbs. Talk to a vet to find out whether your Alusky is obese and ask him about how to maintain your dog’s healthy weight.

    Hey,

    My partner has an Alusky, she’s getting to 6 months now.

    Just wondering tips on what to do when she gets bitey, playfully because everything we do to get her to stop excites her more and makes her think we’re enjoying it.

    She’s much better than she was as a younger pup and she understands sit and wait and some other basic commands, but stop or no when she bites doesn’t seem to do the trick, we’ve read putting your hands behind your back or ignoring her but then she just bites wherever else she can, I’m sure it’s just an attention thing or playful temperament, but wondering if you have any advice.

    Thanks

    Thanks

      Hi there,
      You can teach your Alusky to inhibit biting. When your pup latches onto your finger or hand, let it go limp and make a loud yelping noise. When she releases your hand, ignore her for 10-20 seconds before resuming play. Do not try to pull away from a bite. It might trigger her chasing instinct and worsen the issue.

    I’m looking to rehome another families malamute husky pup. She is 10 months old. This is what the owner has to say about her.
    ( So far she hasn’t liked anyone that has come to see her. Youre welcome to come see her, but she’s timid around strangers and might take some time to get her used to a new person. She barks and growls and doesn’t let anyone near her.) The owner said this wasn’t like her tell after they picked her up from the kennel aftwr a few days.
    I went to see her and she more barked at me then growled. And it took me about a hood 45min to even try to per her. I’m going back to see her again this thur. To see how this visit gos. I was wondering is there anything that I can do gain her trust of me and any of my family members.

      Hi,
      When you go back to see the Alusky pup this Thursday again, you need to keep these things in mind to earn her trust.
      • Do not greet her with nervous energy. Stay calm, speak softly, and avoid the temptation. Excitedly approaching the pup could make her more excited, which could result in an unwanted greeting.
      • Respect the pup’s space. Do not stand too close to her and make sure that you leave a minimum four feet space between you. Do not touch, talk or make eye contact with the animal.
      • Approach the dog from the side instead of from the front. Stoop down and face the same direction as that of the dog. Hold your hand and make a fist while avoiding eye contact. It is a non-confrontational way of entering her space.
      If she is interested, she would definitely come to you and sniff your hand. You can then pet her chest. You can also accompany the pup’s owner when she is taken outside for walks. That way, she will accept you as a member of her pack.
