Hi everyone!

Nava is 9 weeks old and is awfully stubborn! Don’t get me wrong he is a very good pup; he will let me know if he has to go potty, he comes to his name, he listens when we tell him no for the most part and he’s a very sweet puppy  BUT if he doesn’t want to do something he won’t. He will just sit or lay down. I’ve read on here that huskies are like that, but is it normal at 9 weeks?? Sometimes it makes me feel like he doesn’t like me lol. Thank you in advanced for your input. 
pic of Nava is attached!

Hi, he’s a beauty. And yes stubbornness is a husky’s first middle and last name! They have a mind of their own and will for the most part co-operate but when they don’t want to do something they won’t. Work on building up a strong bond with him, try not to show frustration and use positive reinforced training with him. If he’s acting stubborn it’s not a sign that he doesn’t like you, I would research the breed thoroughly, having the knowledge and understanding about huskies will help you when dealing with any issues. They are not like regular dogs, I’d say they’re more of a companion and once you’ve developed your bond and you have gained his trust the fun begins!

This Luna. Luna is nearly 9. Luna has just had a 3 mile walk and we are nearly home. Luna doesn’t want to go home so Luna sits down in the middle of the lane and refuses to move. Huskies and stubbornness go together lol, you’ll have to get used to it.

He is going to lead you a merry dance  -  with a face like that he will get away with murder  (I have one just the same)

Our puppy is 25% husky and must have this same stubborn husky gene. We will be out for a walk and decides she doesn’t want to go any further and just sits down and refuses. No luring her with any amount of treats when she gets in that mood.
