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.

Hi, I plan on getting a husky sometime in the future (ideally when I reach my 20s) though I am aware that they can be stubborn and very destructive, I am willing to properly prepare myself to deal with/prevent that by arming myself with as much knowledge as possible before I make such a big commitment. So I am asking you folks to help me. Is there anything that is different when it comes to training a husky from other dogs? Please provide reliable sources and or personal experience.

To my mind, the important thing is utter consistency. As for methods, probably depends more on the individual dog than anything. I never give the "method" a name - just what works. Initially, Ami was highly food motivated. Not so much anymore...but, he seems rather compliant and very smart - if I can convey to him what I want, he will adopt the behavior. Mostly. For recall, I use the Mini Educator ecollar. He's a wuss - I use the vibrate and he thinks its haunted Laughing

Archer - still highly food motivated but equally wants to please so praise works.

And - a good, solid "no" works, too, to deter behavior. Not loud, just firm - and it works even better is you can anticipate what Mr. Pooch is about to do and give the "no" ahead of time (example: Ami loves, loves, loves butter - about the only thing I cannot leave unattended on the counter. When I see him lift his nose, a simple "uh uh uhh" and he walks away. Probably, like my kids, he thinks I have magically powers or eyes behind my head. But really, like children, dogs are really transparent lol!

All training should be done in the context of a good bond which will come from playing, walking, grooming, feeding and just "being" with your dog.

Also multiple short training periods a day worked better for me than a long session. Say maybe 15 -20 minutes usually.

I never hit, scream (well, once I did - he started to lift his leg on hubbies motorcycle in the barn and my scream was pure instinct Rolling Eyes ), raise my voice, yank hard on a leash, rub his face in anything or any of that stuff.

Good luck on getting a husky. I love the breed - funny, engaging little imps they are!
