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.

Hello, everyone! My name is Ben and I am glad I found this forum. Very Happy  I am a first-time husky owner and I have discovered that it is almost a full-time job.  I found my Kobe on Craigslist and brought him home almost a week ago at 8 weeks of age.  

I hate to admit it, but attempting to crate train Kobe has been a challenge.  He's constantly crying when I put him in the crate, sometimes for hours on end.  Luckily, I found the crate training thread so I hope to find some tips and advice from you lovely husky owners and put it to use.

Thanks for having me and I hope to read about your adventures with your husky(ies) soon after I get some sleep!

-Ben

P.S. Here's a picture of Kobe sleeping, enjoy! Very Happy

Welcome to the forum Ben! Congratulations on such a adorable puppy! Kobe is beautiful!

Plenty of knowledgeable people here so if you have any questions just ask. Sometimes it may be answered right away, other times it might take a little while but we all try to get any questions answered if we can. Smile

Welcome, Ben!

Keep at it with the crate training.
I've had three huskies, and the first two beat me.
I gave up because I couldn't take the whining.

My current husky is a rehome that somebody else crate trained.
It is wonderful!
Bodhi just goes inside when it's time for bed.
And when we travel, we bring a travel crate and he sleeps inside.
I should have stuck with it on the first two dogs.

crate training is hard, we stated slow had him eating a kong in there with some peanut butter, and he seems to like his crate. although he isn't left alone some is always home.
