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.

Regards,

Was not exactly sure where to look or search for such a topic, but I am eagerly looking to get a new addition to my family in the form of a 12 week old female husky, I am looking to start very quickly on training and housebreaking this pup in the form of crate training. I do however have a 10 year old untrained Malamute male at the house. I foolishly got him when I was very young and was not properly equip to train him. He is primarily an outside dog, but sleeps inside in the basement. He knows basic commands (Sit, Stay, Down, No etc...) he just chooses when to listen to them. He is trained on an invisible fence which keeps him in the yard, very rarely does he get loose and when he does he always comes home. We are in the country so he will wander off after an animal (maybe once a year).

I am concerned with bringing home a new puppy that I want to be very obedient when their is another bad influence around.

Any input or resource references are greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Ryan

Training her by herself will be your best bet. Just because he is older though doesn't mean he can't learn too. Anything you want her to do you need to hold him to it also. If she can't jump on furniture then neither can he. If she can't pull on leash then you need to not let him get away with it either. Mostly bad habits I see passed between dogs are like barking needlessly or digging. Individual training is your best action though. If you are trying to train one dog but the other is around you can end up with them more interested in playing than working.
