  1. What a ham... Love the expressive face.
  2. I started off by just feeding them in their crate. Slowly extending the time spent in the crate. *I do not crate mine when I leave the house. I have a section of the house “husky proofed” for them* But I think it is a great idea to have them used to a crate in case they have to stay at a vet or there is an emergency. My male is great. His sister though has anxiety. I do not make a big deal leaving or coming home. Try keeping him in the crate when you get home until he is calm, then let him out without making a big deal out of it. Unless he has to go potty as soon as you get home....
  3. She looks like a good momma.
  4. Very cute. Maybe a black nose sable. But they change so dramatically it’s hard to know.
  5. I have always had better luck with males. In any animal. LOL I have a pair now. Brother and sister. She is more difficult when it comes to in the house stuff. She can’t be left alone for a second or she eats everything blankets, pens, carpet, the fence, etc. House training was a lot harder too. But outside the house, she is perfect. I can take her anywhere. Brother on the other hand is the complete opposite. Awesome inside. Total snuggle bug and can trust him for short periods of time alone. However, outside, he was a nightmare! And surprisingly he is extremely protective of me. As far as timing.... that is your personal choice. I have gotten back to back dogs. It helped with the grieving process. This last time, it was about 2 years. So, you are the only one that can make that decision. (Doesn’t matter what others think) You know what’s best for you.
  6. Mine mostly sleep on the couch. They have nice dog beds but they like to eat them sometimes so they only have access to them when they are super tired. When it is hot they just lay on the tile floor. I only use these for place training. The girl likes to eat them.

    Hi

    Welcome. Adopt if you can. Especially if you have never dealt with this breed before. A lot of people do not do their research and get puppies. Then they give them up because they had no idea on how to train them. Do lots of research. Puppy stage (until 3 years from what I have learned and been told) can be very difficult and training will take lots of time. Huskies are beautiful and worth the time! However, they are not managed like your Labs or GS dogs.
  8. I am so sorry to hear that. Run free Flash
  9. I have the complete opposite issue here. It’s really dry. So, mine have dry itchy dandruff. But my boy will get soft and shiny- oily type coat right before he starts shedding. My boy started chewing holes in himself so the vet gave me a med shampoo and I had to wash him 3x a week for 4 weeks. NOT FUN. 🤦🏽‍♀️ My girl has environmental allergies. I wipe her down with Witch Hazel. I have not bathed them since. Its been about a year. Whenever they get dirty or stinky, I wipe them down with the Witch Hazel.
  10. My boy gets in a zone. Has obsessive disorder. LOL He was seriously diagnosed with it 😂🥴 Pet Corrector or any pressurized air. Worked great for mine. Don’t do it around their face. I hide it so he doesn’t know where it is coming from and only when nothing else is snapping him out of it. Don’t want him getting used to it. My girl flattens out like she is ducking for an in coming air assault. Hehhee Place training and impulse training works great. Did wonders for mine. My boy used to run backwards, scream, gator roll, jump 4 feet straight up, and bit the leash.
  11. Not sure about meds but I would definitely not push physical exercise. Let it have a chance to strengthen
  12. I feel your frustration I have been there. First: there is nothing wrong with him. It’s a Husky thing. Huskies are not Labs or GS. There is no loyalty and they will not listen like other breeds. They will only listen if there is something in it for them. So, take a deep breath and understand you are in the middle of the teenage phase. Plus, they have bad days like we do. Chock collars are not suggested for these guys. You will harm their trachea! If he did not respond to the corrections then you are not using this tool properly and that is why he is progressing with the behavior instead of listening to you. My male would lung, scream, run backwards, jump 4 feet straight up, and gator roll, you name it he did it! And I have two of them! Here are some suggestions: Google the proper way to do these, I like SolidK9. (I do a softer version of these techniques and it worked amazingly) Now you may think these have nothing to do with walking him but trust me they will help in every aspect. Place Training And Impulse control training I put my boy on a lunge line and take a toy that he only gets while on the walk. I take him to the cul-de-sac and play fitch for about 5 minutes. Then I work on recall and the here command - call him to me he goes around me and then sets at my side. Then after a few good ones we walk. I never let him hit the end of the lead. (doing corrections incorrectly or allowing them to have pressure on the neck trains them to work through the pressure) Always end while they still want to keep going, always make it positive/fun (like a kid, you tell them not to do something and they do it because you told them no). It’s not about distance at this point. You have to mentally tire him out! These guys are breed to pull. You are not going to train generations of natural instinct out of him. You will be fighting a loosing battle. Work with him. Impulse Training: They have to set with the door open and wait for my command before they go through. I do this for every door; house doors, car door, crate, stores Place training: You can use a rug, towel, or bed. I tell them place and they are to stay wherever I point them to until I give a release command. Walking: What a huge difference this made. He is sooo much fun now. My girl does a perfect heal 80% of the time. The other % I can live with. LOL When you google training make sure you include Husky. A lot of “normal” training techniques do not work with them. And... make sure you are using tools correctly or you will injure him or end up with a hefty vet bill. Good Luck
  13. No different then how my two played as pups. However, your 1 year old is taking it too far and it’s not fair that she is so much bigger.You need to correct this behavior. She is being a bit of a bully. It is good that she is releasing when the pup whines but it shouldn’t get that far. The older looks up at you for guidance so that is also good that she is checking in. That tells me she should be easily taught on how to play nicer. Throat grabbing and shaking is how they bring down prey in the wild. It will cause issues later on. Be carful on how you do this. It could cause more aggression. I used a spray bottle and tell them to release. There should also be a spot where the pup can go to be left alone or use as a time out.
