  1. Hello everyone! My name is Sapphire and I am from Texas. I have two beautiful husky puppies. I first had the one male, Zakai. About 16 weeks after I had Zakai I thought that he needed a playmate so he wont be so lonely when I'm away at school. So I brought home a 10 week female husky puppy named Periwinkle. Zakai loves to play with Periwinkle. But the problem is that whenever I try to play with him, he does not want to play with me! He would rather play with Periwinkle. After I exercise Zakai and Periwinkle I separate them so I can work with them individually to train. I try to train Zakai using toys and playtime to create a better bond with him but he just wants to leave whichever room we're in so he can play with Periwinkle. He will not even look at me no matter how many times I call his attention. He will just stay looking at the door. And I try to be as exciting and interesting as I possibly can, goofing around, making funny noises, but nothing works. So then I try to train him with treats and the same thing. He does not listen to me. I have tried separating them 3 times a day so I can train them. I taught him all the basics. I just want to teach him a lot more new things. Periwinkle is such a good girl. She listens and she's focused. I have no problem with her. It's Zakai that won't give me the time of day. So, fellow husky owners, I reach out desperately, please help me and tell me what I must do.
  2. I know that many of you are husky experts, so I'm asking those of you who are a question: How can I train my husky to play fetch? Sampson, when he's hyper, can sort of play fetch with a Frisbee. I throw it, tell him to "Go get it," and he runs over to it. Then, I say, "Bring it to me!" and he runs over with the Frisbee in his mouth. But it takes a while to get him to give it to me. But when he's not hyper, he just kind of watches the Frisbee as it flies in the air.But he doesn't catch it. Do you guys know any ways to train Sampson to play fetch, or any tips, at least? Thanks in advance!
  3. Hello! (: Brand new to this forum, and I have an interesting question to ask. How do you socialize an adult dog if they were not properly socialized as a pup? The reason I ask this is I have recently adopted a 1 year old husky/malamute mix from a family that lived out on acreage for that entire year, and all I can say is when I asked if she was house broken, they told me she just "stays in the garage". Now, she is not dog aggressive, just very VERY motivated. She does not care for people (she grew up with a very large human family), she is sometimes food motivated, but if we walk down the road and she sees another dog, she is high alert, wants to go see that dog ASAP. Even when we go for a drive in the car she will turn around, fully in her seat, and stare out at the dog, even when we have turned the corner and the dog is long gone, she's still staring. I understand her longing to be with her fellow people, as she was restricted from seeing or meeting with other dogs her whole life so far, and to suddenly be brought out from that old environment and see things are much different then she thought before must be mind-blowing and very exciting. So I bring her to work with me to meet people and hear the sounds (I work at a gas station and she sits behind the counter with me), we go out to dog pools and have her swim with me and the other dogs or even dog parks and run around with other dogs, which are truly the only times I ever see her happy. For the 2 months I have had her, she has been very obedient for a husky/mal mix, at least in my opinion. She knows her sit, down, stay, high five, shake, knows her new name and will usually come when I call her name at the park or anywhere else, but if another dog comes running at her or distracts her, bam she's off like a lightning bolt until I can try and call her back to my side again. This might all be in my head because she's still very young and it's her rebellious stage, but I still feel like I need to socialize her more as she is just so obsessed with every other dog for lack of a better term, even if that dog won't even give her a glance, she will not break eye contact and she goes so stiff, almost like she's about to chase down a squirrel. I just moved cities, so I do not have any close friends with dogs I trust to teach her calm and collective manners, and when I let her run free at the dog park, I still feel like she isn't learning the proper way to socialize. I eventually want to get a second dog a couple years down the road, mainly so maybe having a buddy at home that grows up with her might make her feel better, but I fear he might gain some of her habits and even worse when that time comes, if that time should ever come. What are your guys opinions? And please don't hold back, I'm open to all suggestions as I want to help her as much as I can. We're going for training lessons, I'm just trying to figure out if she will benefit from a one on one session with a experienced trainer, instead of a group of dogs? This is her, with her cat friend Harley. I call her Kida. (:
  4. We bought a big crate and blocked it off to his size, and hell go in and chew on his blankie on his own, and he hasnt had any accidents in there, but im not sure how to potty train him with it. My mom wont allow him out until hes completely potty trained except to play for little bits at a time or unless im carrying him around. This is how we potty trained my other dog who is only 20lbs full grown, Obviously he will be too big for me to carry around like this when he is bigger, and many many people have told me it takes years to potty train a Sibe. Any ideas on how to potty train him?
  5. Hello all, In the area of ​​my home environment there is quite a large grass field and I used to take my dog ​​to play there, of course, by using a leash. If I want to do the dog training exercises to run away and take things away place, is it okay to use a leash along approximately 50 meters in the exercise? In the field is often a lot of kids playing and sometimes cats are passing around it. please advise me and thank you for your help...
