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.

One of the most important things is that you got to invest alot of time and effort the first 1,5 years or so to properly train your dog in any aspects that are important, so having a dog will be joyful for the next years.

It is like having a baby, the first months or longer you will have to push back your personal needs, because you definatley have to invest alot of time.,

I would say, be patient, and don't take anything personally. Husky puppies are different than any other type of puppy. My little guy wasn't very affectionate at all at first, and he was a terrible little shark (biting problem), I felt like I had to earn his affection. If you think he/she is being awful or misbehaving, most likely they are just trying to play or they need something, use timeouts for both you and your pup. If you start to feel your jaw clenching, or you are annoyed or angry (which will happen unless you're a saint), put the pup in his crate for 15 min to give yourself a break. I remember I took him to a puppy playgroup once and he was going nuts playing with a shiba inu and this little lab puppy came up to see me. She was all over me, in my lap, giving kisses, etc. She gave me more affection in 3 min than Dizzy ever had. They are awesome, but don't feel bad if you think your puppy isn't as good as other puppies, or isn't learning as fast, or if you think you got a devil puppy. They are all devil puppies in their own way. Smile You will get all sorts of advice from random people on the street, and just ignore them, you'll get to know your pup real quick, and trust your instincts in terms of what is best, most people have NO clue about husky puppies, including vets. Wink

Hang in there, don't get discouraged, try not to have too many expectations, and remember they WILL grow out of it. Wink Remember, if you need a place to vent, cry, yell, laugh, scratch your head, or get some tough love, we're here for you.
