My blog is based on my life with my Siberian Huskies, Gracie and Echo. I like to share about our hiking adventures and what life with a dog is like. I also review products that we use with my honest opinion to help owners find the right products for their pets! I try to focus on high quality brands and products, as I believe in only using top quality products for my two fluff balls.

I am Katie, the girl. I am a recent college grad as of May 2016 with a degree in Middle Grades Education and concentrations in both Mathematics and English Language Arts. I am currently working with The Puppy Pantry, a local pet boutique, as a store manager. I enjoy traveling, trying new things, hiking and hanging out with my awesome fiance, Dylan.fullsizerender14

Gracie, my first husky, is a 9-year-old purebred Siberian Husky. Gracie had previously belonged to a family member who could no longer keep her when she was a year old, so she came to live with me. Gracie and I have been close ever since. Gracie loves exploring and going on car rides. My beautiful bi-eyed friend is also a canine epileptic. Epilepsy is a seizure disorder that can affect a variety of animals and humans. Siberian Huskies are prone to epilepsy. Gracie was diagnosed when she was 3 years old. Her condition is mild compared to other dogs with epilepsy; she has seizures about every 4-6 months.fullsizerender10

Echo is our newest addition. He was born in late January 2016 and joined our family on March 25th. Echo is a rescue puppy from Releashed Rescue in Georgia. Echo is a Siberian Husky mixed with Rough Collie and just a splash of Chow Chow. His unique spotted fur pattern is called “piebald.” Echo loves just about everything. He loves all his toys, every treat, and any activity. He is a happy puppy. He is currently in an Introduction to Agility class and received his AKC Canine Good Citizen Award award in the fall.

  1. My name is Crystal, I live in Georgia (Southern Georgia). I have a 4 month male Siberian Husky and I love him to death, but right now he is teething and I have tried almost everything i can think of to get him to stop biting me, my shoes, my clothes, etc. Is their anything that you can think of that might help me with this problem. I know that he will have his full set of teeth when he is 7 months but need help now. (this is my first husky, did all the research i could and I got him from a private person)..

    Thanks a Million,

    Crystal and Smoke the Husky

    1. Hi Crystal,
      Thank you for reaching out to me. I got Gracie when she was already a year old, however I have talked to plenty of other husky owners about teething puppies. They seem to find the best solution to be chew toys that he is interested in and redirection. When he starts biting you, get his attention with a rope or squeaky toy. He needs to know that it’s okay to chew on those, but not on you or your things.If your puppy is biting you, you want to make sure he knows this is an unacceptable behavior. If doesn’t learn this now, it will be more difficult when he is larger and has adult teeth. This is also a good age to enroll into a puppy obedience class. The trainer would help you with behaviors like these and he will learn proper manners early on. Maybe research some good teething toys and treats for puppies. I hope this helps and good luck with Smoke!
