I have a 6 month old husky called Lyla and my partner has a 2 year old husky called autumn (both girls) which we adore!!
Both dogs are so friendly to both people and other animals and love running around and playing with other dogs at dog off leash areas!
However, recently the 2 year old husky autumn has been really rough towards small dogs when they begin to run away or growl back, even to the extent of picking them up and thrashing them in her mouth :/ it hasn't gotten to the stage of her actually injuring any small dogs but the behaviour is often unpredictable and you can imagine how upset the owners of the small dogs are!
We growl at her and put her straight on the lead after this happens and she knows she's in trouble but the behaviour still continues
I also have a small fox terrier dog that she would never do this towards (she knows to leave him alone)
I have read a bit about high prey drive in huskys and am pretty certain this is her reaction towards small dogs
Just wondering if anyone has seen this behaviour in their huskys and had any luck or recommendations of training this behaviour out?
We would love to still be able to take them out to dog off leash areas and not have this concern!!
