Lol.. i get a fair bit of criticism, on muzzle.. tough. It's not cruel.
All brilliant ideas and every everyone of them could work;
to crate train is better in the day when you have the time if you are at home and that is by getting them in with a toy or a treat... once they bend down to pick it up, shut the door and give it 30 seconds don't make a fuss of her if she's whining but be around so she can see you; let her out and carry on.
If you can get her tired that will really help and then back in with a treat thrown in.. as soon as she bends down to pick it up she may watch you this time! but when she goes down to pick it up THEN close the door quietly and again, leaving for a bit but lengthen times slowly... and by all means give her a treat while she's in there through the bars to say 'good girl! bed!
ok I'm doing it with a new foster now 16 months old, and actually I always thought my two are quite often dippy but they're proving to be Perfect Angels lol... compared to the 16 month old little monster cos he's bigger than my big boy and he's learning already by day 3 here with me that the crate is his bed and it's there to wait in as it's also there for 'time out' when/if he's decided to go potty in the house and I mean going dipshit & doing zoomies and playing indoors, that he goes back in there, so he knows already he can't romp around - the bungalow is too small and they got a huge space the garden areas to run out the back; I let them out twice in the day for 45 minutes or even more and they run themselves ragged them back in for some 'time out';
my girl and he are wearing basket muzzles because she's a really cranky cow and she also goes back into the big crate we have for 'time out', with her muzzle off in there, and he then has the muzzle off so he can play with my boy and feel a bit more free - I swap him around so my girl has muzzle free space too.
It's very true - they do want to be with you and a slightly smaller crate or pen in the bedroom may be a really good idea but gradually move it out or towards the door, because ideally you don't want to be too disturbed and they will learn to settle down by themselves.. if they're in the hall, maybe not downstairs, but you can set the routine for time out 'bed now' downstairs while you're busy working.
Sorry it seems a bit lengthy - I'm actually dictating cos it's quicker and ..then I go back and try and put some punctuation in; you can only take your time and you need time off at home to work on it because she is still VERY young, missing her litter pack and Mum probably too .. and she's been used to having some form of company around ...so if you can both organise some separate extra time off to be at home with her then you can get her into a regular routine and ...don't forget she needs to rest and sleep too so putting in the crate for time out when she's been running around for a couple of hours is a useful time for getting her to 'settle down' and sleep; classical music seems to work well and if you're worried that she is feeling anxious, apparently humming when you're around them can help to relax them because if you've got vibes then they will certainly sense it very quickly.
Do look at successdogs.com and absolutedogs.com
- they are both very good sites for training and while she's young this is the best time to instill a regular training routine for sit, down, wait, bed, - whatever you feel you need to teach her around especially also to leave! If you don't I can probably 98% guarantee you will have problems by 18 to 20 weeks old so get the training in, study the sites, listen, watch and learn, and then put into practice; they are so intelligent that they will outwit you before you even realise it and then huskies get handed in, abandoned, or given up ... and it's happening every day with anywhere between 8 to 10 huskies a day, in the UK... don't let that happen with you.
Good luck and.. enjoy!
Use only positive reward training. 🤗
If you if you can please look on my Facebook page under Marianne Cottee .. they also have their own Facebook page : Chester and Eski Cottee so have a look there and see what I was doing yesterday which was only day two with my new foster - he has no social skills because he's been a dog on his own and because his owner's work hours have increased massively... so he's in temporary Foster; he may well become a 'failed Foster' and we'll adopt him.. maybe, but I have yet to run a few weeks trial with him and also maybe his owner can can changes hours .. I don't know but if you look on that on my Facebook timeline, my most recent video is is quite lengthy because Blu was not getting to stay still & wait.
