Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

So you guys have been hearing a lot about my husky Hatchi. If you haven't, he is a very calm husky. So once I trigger his "playful" attitude, he begins to nibble on my leg and get kind of jumpy. I get him in this mood by running around like an idiot or by putting something in his face and then running away. Obiously I don't have a very big problem with him nibbling (if I would I would never even start playing with him) but what do you guys think. Is this the correct way to play with him?

And just to be clear. He never has this "jumpy" attitude unless I want him to. Most of the day he is just laying down.

If its just playing I don't see anything wrong with it. We get Karli hyped up when we play with her and she has a great time.

If he starts to get too jumpy/too playful start doing commends. We've noticed that once that "trigger" goes he we get him to down then stay he stays to come down on his own.

Just my two cents, but I'd make going into and out of play mode a part of the routine as early as you can. Get them to settle and do a few commands and reward them with more play time. We have a bit of a problem getting Harry back into a calm state, but he's getting better at being able to turn play mode on and off.
