  1. This is ongoing with Bear...he's like a teenager lol. For me, I ONLY give treats when he does something he really does not like to do, like going into his crate when I leave for work. Other than that I find I have to be extremely dominant with him as he is constantly trying to challenge me. No violence, but very stern commands and being very assertive in how I interact with him, especially in training. When I'm not trying to command anything from him we play quite often. For me, and for him, being a stronger, more assertive leader works best with him. Never off leash in an open area though lol Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  2. When we first got Bear from the rescue his anxiety was BAD! He would tear up everything in his crate, including the crate tray, and escape from it. He broke out of it a few times...we now padlock the weak areas so he can't break out anymore. The first week was especially bad... He's gotten much better since then, now 3 months in, and we haven't really done anything different. We always give a small treat when him and our other dog go in their crates but it really has just been time with him to help him adjust. He still tries to break out but not the freak out kind at the beginning. So...no tips really lol. Time and giving him reassurance we're coming back haha Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app

  6. I always use fresh boiled chicken for training and even that doesn't work on walks sometimes haha Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  7. He's fairly large. Our first dog is about 57 pounds and he's about 75. Standing he's taller than I am...but I'm only 5"5 haha Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  8. Wife and I adopted this guy a couple months back to compliment our lab/collie mix. Very different and interesting from our first dog but he's SUCH a good boy! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  9. How old is the pup?? That happened with our first dog until she realized that she shouldn't poo/pee where she slept, which was around 10 months for us. But yes, too big of a crate means areas can be designated for potty for a pup who isn't fully crate trained. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  10. I thought about picking up some raw food for our husky, and collie, but the cost was ridiculous! Essentially it came out to $11 a pound and based off their recommended serving size I would need about 90 pounds of raw a month Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app Is that the Euro version of the US version? The European version is supposed to be the best raw available but is pricey as all get out! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
