SELWYN TIMES Tuesday August 30 2016 19 News Owning a husky requires dedication Scott Bamford is the host of CTV’s Rural New Zealand. Watch Rural New Zealand, brought to you by Carrfields, Wednesdays at 7.30pm on CTV Freeview channel 40, live and on demand at ctv. co.nz • By Scott Bamford THIS WINTER, at least one husky a week is arriving at the West Melton branch of Husky Rescue NZ, the company re-homing abandoned or unwanted huskies. This season is shaping up to be the worst in the company’s seven-year history. Although many of the unwanted dogs come from Auckland, Husky Rescue NZ has experienced an influx of huskies from Christchurch. “We do always have dogs from Christchurch … it’s pretty much one dog a week from Canterbury. It’s the worst winter we’ve ever had,” Husky Rescue NZ founder Michelle Attwood said. The siberian husky is known to be a hands-on breed. Ms Attwood said a minimum exercise routine of 5km a day is WALKIES.

Many people will purchase a husky before understanding the dog’s needs and then give up when the job becomes too hard, she said. “[Owners] say: ‘Oh well, it jumped a six-foot fence, it ate the neighbour’s cat and it won’t come back when it’s called’ … Those are all just standard husky traits.” Ms Attwood reported reoccurring problems from irresponsible breeders. “We’ve had over 12 dogs from just one backyard breeder … time and time again we are seeing the same problem dogs from the same problem breeders,” she said. The rescue centre caters to huskies through a combination of pack-like living arrangements and dry-land scootering and sledding. “They do really well at the CHILLING.

Husky owner Christos Merentitis adopted his pet Max about three years ago. Strict training and constant exercise is what helped Max become a beloved member of the family. “I got Max when he was 10-months-old. A lot of trainers said that was too late to correct bad habits, but you’ve just got to keep on top of it and actually want to see a change in your dog . . . take them for a huge run, and then do 10 minutes of training – when they are too tired to be cheeky or disagree with you,” he said.
