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.

PostSubject: New baby coming home   Sat Jan 25, 2014 8:47 pm

We are bringing home a new husky pup in 2 weeks. My girl Reyna was a total jewel as a pup. She wasn't a chewer, housebroke easily and did fantastic with socialization. We are bringing home our red and white male we have named Timber in 2 weeks. I'm mostly worried about chewing. I realize ever pup is different and he could be a chewer when Rey a wasnt. What is the best method of getting him to chew his toys but not our valuables?

Congrats on the new addition! Smile

The first thing I would do is puppy proof the house. Put all your valuables (and anything else you don't want him chewing) in a place the pup can't reach. If you do catch him chewing on something he shouldn't be, say No and replace it with one of his toys. Praise him once he starts chewing on the toy.

You also might want to have some bitter apple for baseboards, door frames, etc., just in case he's the persistent type.

We did the no(hide important stuff) chewing hiding stuff from Rey and it worked super well. We are very encouraged with timber, just trying to gage our patience level. Frustration is not conducive to a new baby. I think k we will try our methods with Reyna(plenty of toys and outlets). K
Just wo during if it becomes a habit of his own. Smile
