Re: Tams that lack confidence...

Thanks everyone. I have lots of good ideas, but if anyone has more, I will take them. I will start small, but yup, got to fix this now. At least as much as I can. I know he has a bit of a reserved personality, I can live with that, but it kills me to think he is scared, not aloof.

Tams that lack confidence...

I have a 14 month old intact Tamaskan, that I have had since he was 5 months old. He's been well socialized to other dogs and people, but has gone from reserved around people to fearful. He is a confident friendly dog in my house, and in the homes of my friends. But, take him to the vet office, the ...

Re: Ares and Karhu

Hi,

No, he became Ukko. He's doing great! But with a new job I have been way too busy. Hoping to come back and spend more time here soon. Including posting more pics and videos.

Re: Shay with double K9 teeth.

How long did it take for the baby canines to come out? I have the same thing with Ukko right now and I am hoping the baby teeth are lost before I have to go to the vet.

Re: Dealing with "That's a Wolf!"

I live in CT where wolf hybrids are not allowed. I take my pup out in public as often as I can to socialize him and I have gotten a wide variety of responses. Luckily all those who have responded with "Is that a WOLF?" have been asking in appreciation and awe. No one has responded with fear, probabl...

Re: Puppy temperament?

Ukko is 5 months old and I couldn't ask for a better dog. He's a thinker, so when he gets uncomfortable he simply sits down and watches until this is comfortable. I've made sure I had the time to do that when we go out. He does not have as much energy as I expected from a pup his age. He can totally...

Raised Feeders

Hi, Does anyone else use a raised feeder for their Tams? Ukko is almost 5 months old and already does not like eating while standing. He'll often lay down and eat from the bowl. I'm borrowing a raised feeder from a friend (she had it for a Dane that passed) to see if he likes that better. Since he i...

Re: Saxon Ares - Ukko

Ukko continues to do great. He's getting less nervous about the crate and car rides, gets along fabulously with every dog he's met, is patient with little kids, and a total jokester. He’s a sweet heart and getting bigger every day. I have to remind myself he is still a puppy! It’s been really hot an...

Re: Saxon Ares - Ukko

Pete, he is a smiler, a laugher, a digger, and the king of my heart! He is very happy here, despite the teething! Today he brought me a ball to play fetch. Been trying to teach him since I have always wanted a fetcher and neither of my dogs ever showed any interest. He's happy and active and doing g...

Re: Saxon Ares

And he has a call name! I give you Ukko, the Finnish god of Thunder and Rain. It seemed appropriate after he gave me a heart attack today when he disappeared and I found him outside enjoying a thunderstorm. LOVE this dog.

Ares and Karhu

Ares has proven himself to be a digger. He and Karhu are so alike. Here is a link to a short video of them playing. You should be able to see it, even if you do not have a facebook account.

Saxon Ares - Ukko

My pup arrived Thursday evening, and after a very long drive home in torrential rain, he reached his new home and met his new pack. I could not be more pleased. He is loving, crazy smart, friendly, and playful. Still figuring out his call name. But here are some pics of him during is first couple da...

Re: Hello from New Haven, CT

Hi cali294 (Couldn't find your name on your profile page.) The pic was sent to me as one of Ares when they first asked if I wanted one of the pups. Our boys are from the same litter. However, Pete did email me new, and current, photos of Ares this am, so I will switch it out. Sorry if I was mistaken...

Hello from New Haven, CT

Hello, I guess I should introduce myself, since I am about to get my first Tamaskan! Next week Saxon Ares will be arriving in the states from Bulgaria. Pete contacted me when the original deal fell through, and I can't tell you how over the moon I am about Ares. Loved him from the first pic I saw, w...
