|Husky of the Month|
Congrats Nikita, Archer, and Cheyanne,
our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|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.

Hey guys, so our boy Loki is just over 6 months now and its almost like an overnight shift in behaviour...
We thought we had it beat but the mouthing has started up again. I know its mainly excitement, he comes up to us with the biggest smile on his face and first thing he does is go for a hand or anything dangling. He does not bite but you sure know he is there. This has become a bit of an issue because we have a few family members and friends that are still a bit timid of his pearly whites. I have been working on the yelp and ignore technique but haven't seen much progress. He's also pretty good at listening to the "NO" command but by the time you say no its too late hes already mouthed you.... sigh
Secondly and I have a hard time not laughing when he does this... PAWING. He gets a little older and those massive front paws need to be up on everyone. I get that he is excited and he uses it for "hey,hey,hey, PLAY WITH ME" but its not a behaviour id like to reward with play.
I'm looking for any suggestions to stop these trends before they become habitual.... ANY advice welcome.

With any mouthing, which woulda been only Kohdi, maybe it's a boy thing, I don't know, he'd stop whenever I said "ah ah" he'd complain about having to stop, but he'd stop. What I've noticed over the years with all my huskies is, the mouthing isn't something that normally stuck with them, it was always sort of a phase, I guess. If they did it, or started to do it, I'd just say ah ah, and they'd bitch and complain, but they never took it further. Others may have had other experiences, and I hope they post to help you out, this is just basically how it's been for me.
With the pawing. I gave up, lol. Here are my two with my latest guest to the house. On walks, if Kohdi would start to go up, I'd just put pressure on his leash so he'd come back down. Guests to the house, well, they're on their own, lol. (I know, it's not funny. I just have no advice for you on this one )
