Hello from Australia!

Hello,

I pick up my puppy in two weeks time. A beautiful purebred Siberian husky who will be 8 weeks old. I have never owned a dog before and starting to get everything Organised now. I'm planning on crate training although I know very little about this, or anything for that matter. Wanted to join this forum and ask lots of questions so that I can raise my puppy as best as I can. I'm very excited

Hello from Australia, back at ya. (Melbourne)
I adore husky's, they are great active dogs.
What gender are you gettting?

And perfect timing, just going into winter for 6 months of fun n frolics, before its too hot for any dog, let alone a husky.

I highly recommend crate training. I have a dog that loves his crate. Its the one place he can be guaranteed peace here. (extended family, gets a bit hectic at times here)
Plenty to read about crate training via searches, so wont bother posting about it.
Its not rocket science, and you only need a IQ of 70 yourself to master it.
Good luck with your husky pup, and PLEASE post a photo of the cutie!

It is a she.
And thanks for that, I was going to post a question regarding crate training but I will look through and have a look what others have said. We have two cats aswell, so the crate will act as a barrier between them to begin with.

We are in NSW on the coast, just moved here from Tasmania so the husky won't be the only one needing to adjust to the heat haha. No, but have lots of idea on how to keep her cool in the summer.

Hi, welcome to the forum. Crate training can help your dog to adjust to a new world, help her potty train, and feel as though they have a personal place in your home.
