So I just bought a 3 year old husky, the only difficulty I've had besides separation anxiety is he plays really rough, I have bite marks on my arm and he often slaps me in the face. I'm more curious as to if this is normal or if I should start to let him know he is being too rough. Any tips, tricks, and ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Hi! First time husky owner, well, first time dog owner for that matter haha. My 8 month year old husky, Xander, plays far too roughly with dogs in my local park, I often let him off lead there as I can confidently say he will not run off. He is a sociable dog and greets every single dog he sees, has a large amount of friends, small dogs included, so its nothing of an aggressive nature. He just however, play bites far too much and doesn't recognise when the smaller dog is afraid resulting in me running around him like a idiot trying to restrain him and put him back on lead. When he sees a dog he instinctively runs towards it to play regardless of other dogs behaviour towards him. Although I know he is playing, smaller dog owners sometimes worry and try to usher their dogs away. So, does anyone have any advice on how to stop him doing this? Thanks Shannan x
