I have an 11 month energetic male husky puppy. I love him to bits but he is a notorious puller especially in the morning he will happily crawl down the pavement dragging you along than walk nicely. I have looked up countless methods to get him to walk beside me on a loose leash to no avail. Today I took him out for his evening walk using the method where if he pulls i turn around straight away and go in the opposite direction. He was happy to walk the same stretch of pavement about 3m long again and again and again, we didnt even make it to the dog park 5 minutes away. Every time he would just start walking in front and end up pulling forward again I'd turn around and he'd pull again it just wasn't sinking in for him and it frustrated me to the point of tears. The longest time i managed to get him to walk beside my was about 15 seconds, I praised him saying good boy and immediately he began to move in front again. I don't know how to stop this, my arms are killing, my shoulders are dead, can anyone help?
Hey all! Looking for a little help... I have a 2.5 year old beautiful red/white Husky. She is a overall well behaved, very well exercised, full of energy pup. My wife and I take her for walks most evenings, if not runs, and have started to notice a bad behavior that I am having trouble understanding and fixing. There are many dogs walking around every evening in the neighborhood. As we pass and say hello the dogs sniff each other like normal and Paisley freezes at first for about 3 seconds, then jumps at the dog instead of sniffing and remaining calm. She used to do this sometimes but it was in a playful way with the other dog. It has now turned into freeze and then jump and nip, sometimes accompanied by a husky "talking" noise. I try to pull back and reprimand her but it is happening more and more now. Any ideas on why and how to fix this? All advice is appreciated! Thanks!!!
