  1. Hi, gorgeous pup! [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  2. Hello to you both [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  3. One of mine was exactly like that but not with every dog, he’s reactive so pretty much on every walk there’s always another dog who’s barking or growling at mine. I took him to a behaviourist and it’s worth spending the money on one, I use distraction techniques with Luka blue and lots of praise when he doesn’t react, it works so I’m sticking with it.

  4. It will take a while for him to settle in his new home, I’d give him space to get used to his new family, once you have a bond and the trust is between you, you should see a difference in him but it will take time and lots of patience. For the pulling on walks I’d recommend Indi dog head harness, they’re a lot softer on the muzzle than other brands. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  5. Just gorgeous! I’d advise to train together and train separately. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  6. I have 2 males, one is submissive and the other is dominant, the dominant one will sometimes growl and the submissive understands, the growls never lead to any aggression. They are both over 4 years of age and I’ve watched and studied the way they interact and communicate with each other and I’ve come to the conclusion that they sort their own issues out and sometimes us humans getting involved can make a situation worse. Unless there is any aggression or worrying behaviours I’d leave them to work it out for themselves. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  7. Gorgeous pup! Huskies are relatively well behaved until the prey drive kicks in, around 4-6 months of age and then the fun begins...... Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

  9. Hi, he’s a beauty. And yes stubbornness is a husky’s first middle and last name! They have a mind of their own and will for the most part co-operate but when they don’t want to do something they won’t. Work on building up a strong bond with him, try not to show frustration and use positive reinforced training with him. If he’s acting stubborn it’s not a sign that he doesn’t like you, I would research the breed thoroughly, having the knowledge and understanding about huskies will help you when dealing with any issues. They are not like regular dogs, I’d say they’re more of a companion and once you’ve developed your bond and you have gained his trust the fun begins! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

  11. Training takes time and patience, it took me the best part of 18 months for them to be well behaved, to listen to commands and to learn boundaries. Yours is still a baby and she’s just having fun at the moment, I’d advise lots of research as husky’s have a mind of their own, positively reinforce your training and be consistent, with time, patience and lots of praise you will get there.

  15. Hi, She’s still young and biting, nibbling etc is part of dog behaviour, positive reinforced training is essential to correct unwanted behaviour and be consistent, making sure the family are on the same page. I’d start by giving her a firm no when she starts to bite, turn your back on her and don’t engage at all, when she stops say ‘good girl’ and make a fuss, she’ll learn quickly, husky’s love human interaction so ignoring her is something she won’t enjoy and if she persists give her a time out for a few minutes. I’d advise to research the breed, you won’t have a well behaved Labrador, you will have a husky who will challenge and frustrate you but you will have the best companion. Work on building up your bond with her that’s where trust develops between you and once it’s established training becomes easier. Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners Also..... some dogs don’t like hands coming towards them to stroke them on their head, one of mine was the same, so I waited until he was settled and I’d sit next to him stroking his head and ears and his snout telling him he was a good boy and gorgeous, it took months and now there’s no issue. They need to associate the training with something good. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
