  1. What's up guys! I'm having trouble getting my 8 month puppy to go into his crate on command. Once I manage to get him in, he loves it inside and can stay for hours without a single whine. He loves his crate and does not have issues staying inside. He 100% knows his crate command but chooses to not go in it, because he is so damn STUBBORN. After being out and its time for his crate he will just lay down and not go in or just look at me and decide to ignore me and not go in. How can I get him to go into his crate on command? I've done it all, throwing kibble inside, holding high value treats inn my hand etc. He just does not want to go in.....I've been late to work on so many occasions because he just refuses to go in because of his stubbornness, he knows the command but doesn't listen. .....This process of getting him in the crate everyday takes soo long!!!
  2. What's up guys! I have sort of a dilemma that I would really appreciate if you can help with. ......After finishing walking my 6 month puppy we come in through the front door and hang out in the living room area for a while, then when I'm about to take him downstairs he just lies on the ground and wont let me pick him up. I have to pick him up because he is terrified to go down our stairs. At first it was kinda cute, but now it is really annoying as he does this every time we get inside the house and it seems i'm always late for somewhere because he refuses to let pick him up and just lays there. He would squirm if i tried to pick him up and just keep turning till i couldn't get a grip on him. And I don't want to forcefully pick him up.....but unfortunately I've had to a few times in the past which looked really uncomfortable for him, but there is no other way to get him on his feet besides forcefully doing so. And he is doing this to be 100% stubborn, and not because he is anxious or fearful etc. He just wont get up! Nothing seems to work, not even the high value treats, pretending to go back outside to go on a walk, trying to play with him..... THIS GUY KNOWS I'M BULLSHITING AND JUST TRYING TO PICK HIM UP!!! How can I fix the issue, any help is appreciated. P.S. This is how he just stays when he knows i'm coming towards him.
  3. What I did to stop mine from pulling was super easy....whenever he started to pull or even just get ahead of me, I would just do a complete 180 turn and keep walking, then if he got ahead again I would turn again and keep walking.... I did this until he realized he should be by my side because he's not the one walking me. Mind you I had to keep turning and walking till he understood. Also I never pet him when he started to walk by my side because that would excite him and want to make him pull.
  4. Hey guys! I have been having this issue for as long as I can remember, my 6 month puppy lunges so much at other dogs while were on our walk. But he does it to play and not at all any aggression or anxiety issues, he just thinks every dogs wants to play so he keeps lunging as soon as he sees them. He use to lung at other people but i'm able to use treats to keep his focus on me until we pass them, but when he sees another dog nothing I have or do will get his attention and stop the lunging.....Now this is a real danger to my puppy because I've had dogs that have taken his lunging the wrong way and tried to lung back and attack, so its very frustrating.. What can I do to stop his lunging, any advice is appreciated!! P.S. Please don't tell me to just get a trainer....I have fixed almost all other problems myself; leash pulling etc. and would like to solve this with your help, as this is the ONLY issue I have with my 6 month puppy!
  5. Hi Guys! I have a quick question that I have been wondering for the longest time....I wanted to know if my puppy will ever reach 60 lbs as a full grown adult? I Know this question may sound crazy but from your own experience and from seeing other huskies growth rates will you be able to tell me. He just turned 6 months a couple days ago and weighs 41 lbs. His mom weighs 52 lbs and the dad weighs 56 lbs. From his current weight plus the parents weight, will he reach 60 lbs as a full adult? ....I mean that's only 20 lbs left and plus don't huskies grow till 2 years?? Now, no matter what my husky weighs, whether 60 lbs or 40 lbs I still love em, but I have been curious about this for a while and it'll help me put it out of my mind if i got an answer. Thanks!! P.S. Again I know this question is absurd but i'm very curious.
  6. Thanks for the reply man, that really helped to know! And i'm ok with spending money on the dog in case of emergencies, like yours. I'm sure you don't pay $300 every month,I didn't know if this was a major surgery that was cost $1000+. Since my dogs is only about 8 weeks when I pick him up, how many vaccinations would I have to give him and how often? Also how much do these vaccinations cost? Is there a website that gives an accurate time when the dog should be given specific vaccinations? Thanks! Sorry guys, I know it may seem like i want to be spoon fed every information. But i wanted a reliable and accurate source of info on this stuff.
  7. What's up guys! This is my first post and i'm excited to be a part of this forum. I am buying a Siberian husky from a breeder and had some concerns and if you could help me out, i'd really appreciate it! It is a 7½ week old male, and the breeder told me when they took him to the vet for a final examination, the vet said everything is healthy, except only one of the testicles hasn't descended yet. The vet said they couldn't locate it, and the breeder said they didn't want to do a further examination because it was so common. I plan to neuter him but i'm afraid if i end up buying the husky and the testicle doesn't drop, I'll have a massive bill on my hands, for the additional surgery...Or worse the dog will develop cancer. Should I look for another husky? I really came to like this specific one, and was looking forward to buying him, but I don't want to spend lots of money because of this issue. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
