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.

So our boy Remi has finally learned the art of backtalking. Especially in the mornings when we are trying to get ready for work, and he wants to play/go on 237894348 more walks before we leave. He gets a long walk every morning & every night, & playtime when before we leave and when we get home. He gets LOADS of attention from both me and my husband.
By backtalking I mean he starts talking/barking at either one of us (usually me, less often my husband) and when we tell him to "shh" or "no" he barks more, goes into a play stance, and if we stand up or say no he will run away, come back, and do the same thing. We have tried no, shh, pinning him down and telling him no (gentle, always), holding his muzzle to make eye contact and saying no (gentle, always), but that really only works for my husband; it'll work for me for about 2 minutes then he goes back to doing the same thing.
I think he sees me more as his mom and doesn't respect my authority as much as my husband, which I'm not sure how to work on either.
What are the best ways for correcting your husky when this behavior happens? What are some tricks of the trade? What are some tried and true training methods?
I love him to absolute bits, this is just super frustrating in the mornings especially when the neighbors are still sleeping & he goes on his barking/talking spree.
Any help is appreciated.
Also, he just turned one.

Huskies are such blabbermouths.
Anyway, I know you want him to be quiet, but what happens when you ignore him? In trying to get him to be quiet you may actually be giving him the attention he wants. I know ignoring him won't make him be quiet immediately, especially when you don't want him disturbing the neighbors, but he should get the hint if you keep it up long enough.
Then again, I've never been able to get a dog to shut-up for long -- but I think that's because I tend to encourage the talking. It doesn't help that my daughter is now learning to speak Husky. In fact, just this morning:
Me: "You need to drink all of your milk."
Misty just sat there and looked on with pride.

Hahaha ignoring him usually ends in him doing his cheeky little growling thing and jumping on me, pushing against me so I can't get dressed for work, shoving toys onto me, or barking at me to get my attention... but I might try ignoring him for LONGER. haha.
I encourage the talking when it's play time! Haha we love to have conversations together.
Awww thats adorable hahaha

Over time, we've developed a schedule. The downside is, you're going to get a Husky haranguing if you're sitting at your desk a moment past the hour for our run. We ran in the rain yesterday!
The tiny nips and hand-mouthing efforts to initiate play have ceased ("get a toy"), but Grant still pushes toys into you when it's after-dinner playtime. Then he sits on the bluff and watches night creatures. High energy to sphinx like a switch was thrown.
We keep high value chews (bully sticks, horns, hooves, ears, antlers) for distracting before leaving the house, but Grant is at work with me right now, sleeping. Again, keeping the schedule.
Intense-looking and beautiful, your Remington.
