Tundra is almost a year and a half does really well with his crate. Very rarely gets mad hes been put in there. Typically when we come home to let him out the. Have to go back our or when he hasnt been in for a week or so. However trying to get him in is slightly a hassle. Once he figures out that were leaving or want him in he will flop on the floor the only way he will move is if u pick him up. Once he gets lifted he fully submits walks in the kennel and lays in there upon being put down in front of the kennel. Will come to the door to let you even remove his collar without trying to get out. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get him to just go by command? Everything ive tried only works temporary till he catches on.

Hey Psingletongolf!

Huskies are stubborn, and smart. He doesn't want you to go to work! Mad STAY HOME PLEASE! =P...I don't know if you can ever train this behavior out, just because he wants you to stay with him Rolling Eyes

It seems like he already knows what he needs to do, he's just throwing a small tantrum. But nonetheless you can still try. I use the command "kennel up" and Echo "should" walk in. Here's how I trained him...keeping in mind my dog is VERY VERY food driven...

  • Use treats! Get and treat + "kennel up"
  • Feed food in the kennel. Ask him to "kennel up" and only feed him his meal in the kennel once he goes in
  • treat again once he's in and you lock the kennel
  • kong in the kennel

I realize that all my tips are food oriented, but that's how just Echo works. Maybe you husky would be the same?

Also you may want to try getting him to "kennel up" even when you are home. It sounds like your only asking him to go into his kennel whenever you leave. He's associating your leaving with the kennel which is almost a negative thing. So you may want to ask him to "kennel up" when you're home for an hour or two to break up up that association.

Good Luck!

I agree with the advice already given.

Going to her "crate" is probably the only command she will do 100% of the time. Ok - maybe 95% of the time, she is a husky after all. She does get a treat 75% of the time when she goes in there though. Lots of training into doing that though. Easy thing to practice - Just get him to go into his crate for fun, don't even have to close the door but do it at random as well so he doesn't think that whenever he goes in there you will be leaving.

Food is how my newest goes in the crate. There are treats he only gets for going in the crate. First thing in the morning when it's hardest to get him to go in and he hasn't eaten in a while (I only feed at noon and night, not in morning) he gets a higher value chew that he only ever gets in the crate. Then at noon when he has had his meal he goes in the crate for bits of jerky or raw meat.

I can put anything in that kennel food treats toys. Even his favorites. And he doesnt bite. Knows what's going on. I always give him a treat after he goes in to which he refuses to eat till i return. Will just lay there with it between his paws

You can try working on the place command. Teaching him to go to a certain place to get treats. some do this to keep their dogs out of the kitchen they will teach them to lay on a rug and not move from it until released. They will get a treat for going there and eventually the treat will be phased out. Same could go for the kennel. Teach place with the kennel and eventually phase out the treat. Mine know when there's a treat to just go on in. That's the only way he gets it so he will go in on his own, then he gets the treat, then I close the gate or don't close the gate depending on what I'm doing. To get him to eat the treat don't close the gate every time. Sometimes just make him go in there for the heck of it. With time he may become more comfortable eating the treat in the kennel with or without you there. Though if he doesn't want to eat the treat then that is his thing. My goal has always been to get him in the crate. What he does after that as long as it's quiet and not destructive I don't care.
