Hello everyone! Im new to this forum and created this account to help give me insight. Recently, I adopted a husky who is around 50 pounds who will be available for pickup around next week. After constant worry and extensive research about huskies escaping fences, I'm worried my dog will try to escape. Our backyard is pretty spacious, however, the fence is relatively short with some sections made of brick and others iron. We have one gate that is chained but we are planning on installing a PVC pipe above it to fix the problem. However the biggest problem we are facing is the brick wall as it has a unique feature where the brick wall slowly becomes shorter and shorter all around the perimeter until it reaches the end of the backyard. It starts off at 5 feet than slowly shortens all the way down to 3 feet 10 inches. What do you guys think would be the best extension to fix the problem at hand? Thank you very much ahead of time!
Hello everyone! I'm new here, just found this site today. I need help because I'm at my wits end. I have a 3-month-old husky, named Xilonen. I have had her for a little over month. Training is going as well as can be expected. We were doing really well until about 2 weeks ago- out of nowhere, she started biting me HARD- my hands, arms, calves, ankles, she has even jumped up to bite my bum! Her teeth get caught in my clothes and she won't let go! She growls and pulls, even if I don't pull back. I don't care about the clothes, but sometimes she catches a body part, and it seems like her grip tightens on me. The breeder claimed she was 8 weeks old. However, we failed to ask if she was being kept with her mother the entire time (1st time buying a dog from a breeder). I know we didn't ask the right questions, but I suspect her mother never taught her bite inhibition. Also, I have noticed that sometimes when she opens and closes her mouth, I hear her teeth grinding, as if her teeth didn't align properly. Is that normal? Xilonen also jumps on me and no matter how much I try to get her to stop, she proceeds to hump my leg. And won't stop. Once in a while, she obeys the "OFF" command. Or she jumps on me and proceeds to bite me hard and pull, as mentioned above. She only does this to me and not to my husband! I'm assuming it's because she knows he's the alpha. I don't know what to do! (I spend the most time with her!) What am I doing wrong? Sorry for the long post. Thanks in advance. -Vanni and Xilonen
So after Andi got comfortable enough with me and my boyfriend to finally start acting like herself, she started getting into this habit of biting. And in the past few days it has turned into jumping and snapping at my face. I think she's just being playful but I really need to stop this behavior before it gets any worse. I've tried redirecting her to toys and that will work for all of 30 seconds... I've tried putting her in time out but it doesn't seem to faze her very much at all.. It's only me she will act this way with so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I've tried to show that I am the "pack leader" as much as I can (always the first one out the door, making her sit for food, etc.) but she still misbehaves and it only gets worse when Matt leaves for work. She's also gotten into this habit of barking and howling whenever I tell her "no" or "down." Not really sure what else to try. I know she's still just a puppy and it's going to get worse but I just want to make sure I'm doing everything I can and that I'm not missing anything.
