Hello, My Husky Loki is a 9 month old neutered male. He is for the most part as well behaved as husky can be. He is apt to eat most anything, and pulls on the leash sometimes. He is our first husky and can be a handful at times. I do get they have a distinct pecking order and it is evident in Loki's behavior. For the most part he will not bother with me, other than to say hello or interact when playing. Once the wife or daughter are around it seems he becomes different. He definitely asserts him self and I get the dominance thing, but he does bite Not hard but annoying) and mouth their hands. He will also start mouthing my hands when he goes into this mode. He only does it to me when others are around. He for the most part will not bother me, he will also jump up on people intermittently. I was wondering what the best way to stop the mouthing and hand biting. We have tried the assertive "no" verbal command and remove ourselves from the room when he is acting up. We were also thinking about an assertive choke collar to help get his attention when he is in wild mode. I appreciate any thought or insights as to what the best way would be to curb hi enthusiasm. Thaks in advance, Tom S
