This little ball of fluff is driving me insane... I mean not all the time like 10% of the day she drives me nuts.. the other 90% shes just a loveable furrbaby.. I just got her a few days ago. She is 8 weeks old and shes a handful
so here are the things she does that I need help with. & I do completely understand that she is a puppy and these things are bound to happen.
1. Peeing and pooping wherever she pleases
2. Chewing anything and everything
3. Biting the heck out of me (even at my face) when she wants to play
I just want to know ways I can work with her and train her to no longer do these things as often as she does

Welcome to the forum! What a cute pup <3 Your first two questions can be handled some with leashing your puppy at all times attached to you or somewhere where you can grab her and attached to something that doesn't allow her to move far. This way you know what items she can have and you can pick up cues on when she has to potty. If this can't happen, then she needs to be crated.

As far as number 3......start hand feeding, it will help her understand how to be gentle. When hand feeding sit with her at her level palm up talk gently and give a command to take the food, if she gets mouthy do a simple eheh be gentle, when she is gentle praise verbally. The other half of curbing mouthiness is tiring them out. Play games at her level, however you have to start and end the game not her. Since you are limited on taking her places find a small safe space to start leash training and command training. A tired husky puppy is a good husky puppy Smile

Thank you so much, I appreciate all the tips.. she doesn’t even let me sleep at night because of all her energy.. I will tire her out and she will go to sleep for about 2 hours and next thing you know she’s biting my face and pulling my hair to wake me up 😪

Hahahaha, yep that's what happens with high drive pups. It will be a time for lack of sleep for a couple of months, but eventually they slow down a tad and understand that we need our sleep. Smile I use the word bed time and prior to that potty before bedtime to cue my two on time to settle and sleep or at least be quiet hahahaha. So you may want to pick something and stick with it as a cue for quiet sleepy time, so eventually she will get it. They don't stay little for long, so yea it is rough at the moment, it will get better.

What about tips for puppy pad training?
She’s only about 9 weeks and I don’t want to take her outside until I know she can’t get sick. She tends to pee on the pads most of the time but I can’t get her to poop on the pads at all.

Puppy pads are about the worst thing you can use - in my opinion - you're teaching the puppy to do something that in a short time you're NOT going to want her to do, that's eliminate in the house.

But you don't tell us much of anything about yourself or where you live ... and it's difficult to make more than general suggestions in that case.  Your pictures show an urban environment - are we to assume that's where you live?  Is it in an apartment complex with lots of other dogs, in which case your concerns about her catching something are significant - or - are you in a house with a back yard, in which case she's less apt to come in contact with a bug.

I can say (I did say) that puppy pads are a really bad way to train your pup.  It tends to give them permission to not 'request' to go out but to find someplace that you seem to have approved to 'do their business' which is *NOT* what you'll want her to do in a month.

My other comment is that you should crate train her.  Okay, that sounds 'cruel' to a lot of people, but do you really want you 60 pound dog pouncing on you in the morning??  Do you want to come home and find that she's chewed on a speaker wire or worse an electrical wire?  Crates are used by a lot of us for the dogs protection.  The crate is her safe place when you can't be right there to keep her safe.

Last comment - Train your puppy to be the dog you want her to become!

Al - I am laughing outrageously. Yesterday morning, while Wayne was sleeping, I went out with the dogs. Came back in, he's still sleeping and the dogs seem settled...wrong! Ami was insistently woo'in his desire to check in with Dad. Finally, I figured no way was Wayne still asleep and opened the door for the pooches. Both dogs went flying in - Ami with a big leap into Wayne's mid-section and Z'ev talking his head of beside the bed, waiting for his morning scratch.

Wayne later said he didn't know what was going on, just this big weight on his abdomen...

Okay so I do live in a house but there is no back yard. My puppy is only 9 weeks old so as of right now I don’t want her to be going outside. I don’t want to risk her getting sick AT ALL. She has her first and second set of shots but still needs the next two. I’m not sure if I’m just being over protective. But I just feel more comfortable at least getting her to go on pads until I feel safe taking her potty outside.
