  1. Yeah we have removed the crate and I have blocked off any access to under the bed so he can't get under there now. This has solved the issue of pooping under the bed! We are now just using the crate for travelling in the car and he has had one or two accidents in it but is overall doing better. Unfortunately our house is going to be rife with dog smells, I'm staying with my parents at the moment while we get him house trained and they have their own dogs so dog smells will be unavoidable. He primarily spends his time in my room with me and I have washed down the floors to remove any scent of Kodi that may have been there. He's still peeing inside though even with the crate and any kind of bedding removed. He will just pee on any blankets or bedding that is left down for him. It's really hard to catch him in the act because he gives no warning signs at all but he is generally doing a little better than he was. We're really working on bringing him out often and lots of praise/treats when he goes. Hoping it will click with him eventually! Really appreciate all the advise and insight!
  2. Hi thanks for the reply. He came from a very reputable breeder (I was able to follow his progress from birth right up until picking him up) and I went to pick him up myself when he was nine weeks old so I saw the mum and the siblings and the entire set up. He had plenty of outside space there to learn to go outside so I don't know what has triggered this idea that he thinks inside is the toilet. I know it's something that may just take time. I suppose I just worry that the longer it goes on with no progress the harder it's going to be. It's just frustrating I guess. Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app

  4. So this is what I'm dealing with now. He is now going to the toilet under my bed, second time it has happened. He amazingly managed to get it right in a shoe that was in a bag. I'm almost not even mad as it's impressive lol. But really I just feel at a loss, we had been out in the garden for ages a few minutes prior to this incident and he gave no sign that he needed to go. He just isn't making any progress no matter how much time we spend outside he just waits until he is in an inside space. [emoji30] Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  5. Thanks so much everyone
  6. Thank you for the responses. I've been away so didn't get a chance to respond. In regards to toilet training things are still much the same. He has all his vaccinations now so we have been able to go for proper walks rather than just the garden. Today we were out and about for about an hour, lots of that time on grass, and he didn't go to the toilet at all. As soon as I put him into his crate in the car to go home he peed and pooped straight away. The crate is the issue, he has decided that it is where he goes to the toilet. he waited until we got back to it to do his business. At home he is going to the toilet outside in the garden but also still sometimes going in the house. So it's hit and miss really. But the crate training just isn't working at all for some reason. I'm hoping that in time it will just click and he will figure it out! 🤷‍♀️
  7. Hi folks! I used to use this forum years and years ago when I had my sibe girl Kodi. She sadly passed away just a few months ago and left a huge void in my life. [emoji174] The void has recently been filled however by this lunatic, Odin! He's almost 11 weeks old and I can already tell he's going to be a handful! I forgot how tiring having a puppy is lol. But he's a beauty and I hope to have as many great years with him as I did with my Kodi. [emoji846] Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app

  9. It's a fairly small one just big enough for him to stand up and lie down comfortably. He seems to be defying all the usual rules, he would literally lie in his own pee if I let him. 🙄
  10. Thanks so much for the response! Yeah he is usually just confined to the one room with me at a time to minimise accidents elsewhere. He is most certainly strong willed lol. I'm hoping things will click with him eventually and as you say he is still young, I suppose I'm just worried that the toileting in his crate will become a bad habit and I want him to understand it's his place for sleeping.
  11. Hi folks I was hoping for a bit of advice. I have an almost 11 week old husky boy called Odin. He isn't my first husky, my girl Kodi passed away a few months ago and I adore the breed and decided on a boy this time around. I seem to be having problems with him that I never encountered with her so I am a bit stumped. Firstly we've been working really hard on toilet training, from the moment we got him we've been taking him outside regularly to do his business and we've also been crate training him. However there are days where I could be outside with him for an age and he won't go to the toilet but will come back inside go straight into the crate and go to the toilet (he has even gone to the toilet in another dog's crate! So he seems to think it is the toilet!). More often than not he waits to go to the toilet in the house despite being outside frequently. Also if I go to put him into his crate while I go to another room to do something he'll usually go to the toilet straight away before the crate door is even bolted. We're at our wits end and I've read lots of things online but none of it seems to work. If I take his vetbed out of the crate he will still go to the toilet and then just lie in it! 😩 Secondly if we try to remove him from somewhere he isn't meant to be, such as on one of our beds (he pees on our bed so we've been trying to not let him up there), he will start trying to bite our hands and arms! He is teething and does the normal mouthing but this seems a little more aggressive than I would like. As I say I've had a husky previously but she picked up toilet training very quickly and we never had any major issues. Odin seems to be a whole other kettle of fish lol. Any help is greatly appreciated!
