  2. Astro can be toy aggressive, but I don't have children so it's a completely different situation and I wouldn't want to give advice. Good luck with the behaviourist let us know how you get on! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app

  4. Don't tense up if a dog approaches - your dog will sense the change and he will be more likely to react. Just slide your spare hand down the lead to make the lead shorter and you have more control, but don't react any other way. You can start off in somewhere like a park so there can be a good distance between your dog and others, if you have a friend with a dog that can go with you that's ideal! Make sure he keeps his attention on you, and reward with a treat if he does. Starting off by making him sit would be good, then try walking past the dog and decreasing the distance between the dogs, reward him for looking at you not the other dog.

  5. I removed your email address to stop you getting a lot of spam or bad emails from people. This thread is viewable to anyone on the internet not just members. I haven't got a PDF copy of the book, all I can think is to google it and see if there's anything that comes up? Maybe there are free or cheap versions available? I'm not sure.

  6. aggression all shackles behind the neck all the way to the tail are up..ear in the back of the neck and all teeth showing... as far as the lead.. sometimes it can actually add to the situation of some sort of aggression... I let mine be a bit free and a bit tight but then I know all the dogs around where I live and have an "ignore '' command and these little yappers can keep yapping and my pack walks on... Bindi really hates any dog barking at her..she is the queen of the village...except that the village does not know that yet so there the ignore command comes in handy...
  7. sorry just seen this one...I cannot say how it works with younger dogs cause I have always had rescues older then 1 year... My Bindi is food aggressive as am I... If there are young kids around and they get a treat or their food I take her out of the scene..hallway or anywhere else where kids are not..not that I think she would but just do not want to take the risk..Iwan (welsh spriner) is starting to copy Bindi at times cause he thinks she gets more, and him as well we start taking him out of the way of kids...the otherthing I do start with as well is having my nephews 4 and 1,5 feed them treats on open hands..then Bindi is fine with that but as soon as she has a kong or a chew than she has to go away and the kids will have to be told do not go near her...
  8. Amazon have a 65ft horse/dog line we've just ordered £15 inc p&p..... arriving tomorrow so will let you know....... Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  9. Hi Everyone, So I'm after advice and tips from those with a little more experience than I. When out and about on walks with our 3 year old male Husky Atlas, we often come across other walkers and their dogs. Atlas is never off his lead but on one or two occasions, other dogs have started barking and yapping at him and naturally he barks and has a go back when passing close by. It always tends to be smaller breeds that kick off towards him. Having not personally owned dogs before I was hoping people could answer a few concerns/questions I have. How can you tell when it's just "dogs being dogs" and playing and when it's genuine aggression? Should I keep his lead tight when approaching other dogs or should I allow him some freedom to approach so that he know's it's ok? I hope these questions make sense and I hope someone can offer some advice Anthony and Atlas
  10. Thansk Emma, maybe he is moody, i really appreciate the reply, i was hoping for more responses the best i have done is hire 2 seperate behaviourists to come and assess him and go from there, could do without the cost but if the dog goes for kids then he will be out and i do love this guy. Thank you so much
  11. Thank you Emma! Do you have a pdf version of the book? If you can send it here as an attachment to a PM (don't know if that is possible though) that would be great too. Thanks! The puppy will be eight weeks when I get her. I know the breeders personally they are nice people

  20. Our classes have been for 16-20 weeks of age and taught Harlow interactions with other dogs, lead walking and distraction training. She gets enough interaction at the park every day but found these classes very valuable. Considering more specific training once she hits 1 year depending on how she's going. I'd encourage group classes but 121 also has it's benefits but I have no experience with this Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk

  22. what ever suits you and your current pup...nr 1 rule those 2 must get on...
  23. You've gone for best option in keeping him in own environment im much happier leaving the boys with my son dog sitting as he knows them. We did have to kennel them for our daughters wedding, the kennel was great (told me off for phoning on morning of wedding instead of relaxing lol ) but you do worry more.
  24. Puppy xxxx very cute bundle of fluff you have there. Welcome to husky owners xxx
  25. I dont think there's a specific breed to look for, there are owners on here who together we have a right mix, more a personality and a dog who fits in xx good luck with the search.
