  2. Yep, that looks all too familiar! I would recommend a bigger bed! mine sleep with me too, so not even going to try moving them somewhere else... You could get a comfy dog bed and move them to 'their' beds at sleep time...teach them a 'go to bed' command or something?

  5. Looks like my bed. I mean they sometimes leave me a little space. I have tried giving them their own beds, they sleep next to them.

  6. Well if he walks off then that is probably his way of acknowledging he hurt you. Emma was right that he missed out on a lot of puppy training from mom so there might be some oddities in his behavior. Im not sure you are doing anything wrong just have to be patient. Make sure on the kong that you are sizing it properly. Mine went through 3. 1 for puppy 2 for mid-range and 3 for full grown dog (and because 2 got chewed in half) When he is older putting peanut butter in it is a fun activity. (He is too young for peanut butter right now I think) As always with any dog I would supervise with the toy for a little while till you are sure that he doesnt find a way to hurt himself with it. (Huskies are creative in that way)

  7. I always recommend a good strong kong for any husky but it really depends on what he likes to chew. Mine likes to chew on kong's and moose antler (bought from a store) Though I would not give a moose antler to such a young pup. I have good luck with yelling OWW when a bite will occur. Dogs typically have a good nature to them and don't actually want to hurt anyone.

  8. Yes, you get a lot of bad trainers here unfortunately... Most of them use force or punishment! If I don't like what he does, then we are outta there no matter what I paid! I don't want Tsunami any more traumatized than he already is! I'm always on a mission! When it comes to the dogs I want to find the best people for them, I'm not going to leave them with anyone alone for training...you never know what a person will do to them! I also don't like other people 'handling' them...its different when I know and trust you, but you have to earn it before taking control of my furbabies!!! Petting nd playing is another story, but the leash stays with people I trust only!

  10. Well I emailed him exatcly what happens and we spoke on the phone for about 30 minutes... It has something to do with his confidence... Will hear in detail on Monday. Right now I have no idea what or how he trains, but the lady that runs his appointments said he trains you and not really the dog... I mentioned to her that the place people referred me to in the first place requires you to board (right word??) the dog at their place for 2 weeks while they train it and you are not allowed near the dog for that time! And she told me that its not how her boss works... He trains police and sniffer dogs too, so he does come highly recommended. And he will cost a lot, but hopefully it will be worth it. I should know on Monday if I am happy with his methods or not...

  12. I'm a bit confused as to how he can say he knows what's wrong without having ever seen the behaviours first hand but maybe that's just me. To answer your question, Word of mouth recommendations from other husky owners are always a good sign. As some trainers do not really work well with an unbiddable breed like a sibe. What methods did he use? One person had a trainer say he wanted to take her dog to his place for a week. No joke! [emoji33] Good luck. Hope it goes well. Xxx Sent via the power of telepathy.

  15. My only advise would be milk them for info while you got them. I don't know what they are like there but here they are expensive.

  16. Hi, thank you, yes I know once in a while I give him a little milk because he gets sad, here they sell the entire batch of puppies at exactly one month it's my second puppy at this age. I have a cockapoo and him. And yup! He is alrady with his deworming. And this week has his first big puppy shoot. Is there any advice on controlling the destruction, I have another dog that is teaching him.to be nice playing because he tends to bite but I say no when he bites my hands and he backs off. Is there anything I can get him like a bunch of toys so he destroys that and not my furniture?

  20. I know it's not your fault, but I must say that a month old is incredibly young to be separated from mum. That's a real shame. I've never had a pup that young before but if you haven't already, I would strongly urge a vets visit to get him thoroughly checked out. He'll need his shots soon too. Not sure exactly which ones you have in your area. At 7 weeks old, I would imagine he would be napping often and having bursts of energy inbetween to some degree. We found that the destruction was something that happened later on down the line, around three or four months onwards. Huskies do tend to be pretty mouthy and by having him at such a young age, he won't have had any time to learn manners and bite inhibition from his mum and siblings, so you could find he starts chewing on people a lot. Good luck, I hope he checks out ok. Xxx

  23. Bit of an update, I took her out today and purposely took her to places with people and dogs, she was great! At the beginning she was very excited and would lunge towards the people and dogs, but I would just correct her by making a noise and then carry on walking as if I were ignoring them, and she followed. By the middle/end of the walk she was ignoring people as we passed them, just walking calmly past, she did encounter another dog at the end, and still excitedly lunged to play with it, but she recovered much more quickly. I'm really happy with this, I'm hoping that if I carry this on daily she'll eventually get there She enjoyed her walk hahah :')
