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.

This is not aggression. This is rough puppy play. In this case. I'd recommend a time out, and separating the puppy from the older puppy until the puppy calms down.

I do not have a 2 dog home, however, I will point out that at 10 weeks old this is probably not aggressive behavior, but really just husky puppy behavior. Husky puppies are very mouthy. May I ask how old was your husky when you brought her home? If she was under 8 weeks old, than she was not properly socialized with her siblings, and looks to your other puppy as a litter mate.

This is not aggressive - it is how husky pups play.  Having "babysat" my son's husky mix, I know how constant and interminable husky pups can play...and annoy, their elders.  If your older dog won't correct the pup, then its up to you to separate the two when it is too much for her.

As for mouthing humans - there is a lot on here about modifying this behavior (again, it is NOT aggressive - husky pups use their mouths like we do our hands - it is how they play).  Basically, it is all about substituting appropriate "mouth" things when the mouth you.  I've gotten Archer, the pup, now a year old, where, when he starts to mouth my work gloves outside, I tell him to sit, then I give him what is looking for...I rub him, "cuff" him in play, maybe throw a toy or get a tuggy (I make mine out of strips of old sweatpant legs tied in knots).

If you search here for "mouthing" you should find some very helpful hints.


Oops...looks like I just said the same thing as everyone else lol! I guess great minds think alike!
