Hello everyone! I'm new here, just found this site today. I need help because I'm at my wits end. I have a 3-month-old husky, named Xilonen. I have had her for a little over month. Training is going as well as can be expected. We were doing really well until about 2 weeks ago- out of nowhere, she started biting me HARD- my hands, arms, calves, ankles, she has even jumped up to bite my bum! Her teeth get caught in my clothes and she won't let go! She growls and pulls, even if I don't pull back. I don't care about the clothes, but sometimes she catches a body part, and it seems like her grip tightens on me. The breeder claimed she was 8 weeks old. However, we failed to ask if she was being kept with her mother the entire time (1st time buying a dog from a breeder). I know we didn't ask the right questions, but I suspect her mother never taught her bite inhibition. Also, I have noticed that sometimes when she opens and closes her mouth, I hear her teeth grinding, as if her teeth didn't align properly. Is that normal? Xilonen also jumps on me and no matter how much I try to get her to stop, she proceeds to hump my leg. And won't stop. Once in a while, she obeys the "OFF" command. Or she jumps on me and proceeds to bite me hard and pull, as mentioned above. She only does this to me and not to my husband! I'm assuming it's because she knows he's the alpha. I don't know what to do! (I spend the most time with her!) What am I doing wrong? Sorry for the long post. Thanks in advance. -Vanni and Xilonen
Hey! I have a 6 month old siberian husky girl, and she is biting me whenever she is frustrated, wants to play, when she is tired and so on! I feel like her biting is becoming Harder and harder, and i dont know what to do... I am afraid it will escalate! Do anyone have any tips for us?
Hi everyone, I'm after some help. I have an eight month old husky boy called Tikaani. I take him to puppy classes every week to help with his obedience and train him a little everyday. Recently I've been finding that training is becoming, shall we say, a little over stimulating. We train for around 20mins and in that time he is good as gold (for the most part) however towards the end he starts to get incredibly bitey. He ignores toys and will charge and bite my arm. I'm not sure how to deal with this, I've been told to put him in a crate or quiet room with something to chew on to calm him, BUT (and this may be where my inexperience comes into practice) would this not be rewarding him for biting behaviour? Or is removing myself from the room enough to make him think that biting is not acceptable? This doesn't only happen during training but also when playing as well, after a time he'll ignore the toy and then think I'm the better option. I remain calm and don't flap my arms, push him away or make high pitched noises so to encourage him, unfortunately I can't say the same for others in the house that he will then pursue relentlessly. Most of the time he's a lovely lad but his biting is getting stronger. Please help! Thank you
