Do you just ignore my posts??

Say, "No!" very firmly, then get up and walk away. Put yourself in the bedroom and ignore her until she calms down.

It doesn't sound like you have much patience and you're never going to train her unless you have patience. Training is ALL about patience and consistency.

ETA: It's getting really frustrating trying to help you because you don't get the answers you want so you argue with us and tell us how that's not going to work. If you can't take the advice you're being given, please go seek the assistance of a trained professional that can be there with you in person.

Just Keep at it.

Crate training Tika she went ballistic for about an hour the first night. Howling and crying and making demonic noises.

The best thing you can do is just ignore it, don`t move, don`t look at her, just sit there and let her get it out. Or as others have said, if she is nipping too separate her from you in another room until the howling stops.

It will take some time, she will get REAL loud, but then it will be over. and if you ignore her once the next time it happens she will cry less and less to the point where it doesn`t happen anymore at all.

If she learns that you`ll cave in and do what she wants every time she howls or cries, your in for a LOUD house Sad.

Best of luck!

Sometimes reading this thread has been very painful. I HIGHLY recommend seeking the assistance of a professional trainer to work hands on with you and your dog. It sounds like you have a very typically husky pup, but you you may need a little help on learning how to deal with it. I was frustrated with Frankie when I first got him. My frustration and lack of patience was making matters worse. Once I starting working with a professional trainer to show me hands on how to implement all that I was reading about, I started to appreciate the training process much more and have since developed an incredible bond with my dog. I began to understand my dogs behaviors more which helped with my frustration and patience.

If she's doing this at only 3 months old, she will be uncontrollable at 9 months old!! You HAVE to make something work! I still thinks she is thinking she can demand things from you. Did you spend time with her when you came home from the dentist?

When Kale was 3 months I would have to drain his energy for about 45 mins to an hour after every nap, then was training time, then was nap time. If he didn't want to nap and would start acting up, I would ignore him. It was hard at first but it gets easier when they start realizing that they can't demand things from you. Once you start though you HAVE to be consistent. If your lax just once they will see it as weakness. Be consistent and strong. You can do it! Very Happy

You'd rather give her to someone else than get a professional? Wow. Your dog is a normal puppy, she isn't crazy. If you can't handle her and refuse to get a professional, which most people do training with puppies just for shits and giggles, then I would rehome her. You will set her up for failure if you don't properly train her, and I'm NOT trying to be mean, but it's obvious you are not good at handling your puppy and you NEED to seek training because us counseling you over the internet is not helping.

I agree with Heather. You shouldn't be embarrassed to seek out help from professionals, tha'ts what they are there for... to help you. Neutral They want to see you succeed and help you achieve a special bond with your dog.

I totally agree with Heather.

There is nothing wrong with working with a professional trainer. I was not embarrassed, ashamed, nervous, or worried when I sought out professional help. Frankie taught me very quickly that I was in over my head and there was no way I could do it alone. You want to talk about crazy, Frankie did everything that you are describing with your pup and he was older (approx 7 months). In addition he did it to my 5 year old son and anyone else who walked in my house. He destroyed and broke out of crates. There are too many things to list that he destroyed in my house, but the worst was when he bit through a pipeline and flooded my first floor.
SO I KNOW CRAZY!

BUT, I made a commiment to this dog and if I could not follow through on that committment then he deserved better. I WANTED to learn how to communicate effectively with my dog as well as develop a bond. There are still days he drives me nuts, but I am much better equipped to deal with those days.
Working with a professional trainer was one of the best decisions I ever made for me, my dog, and my family.

Treat for you Dee!

I also agree with Heather, and Dee!

When you decided to take home Loona, you made a commitment to her and you'll need to be responsible for her, her training, and everything else she will need from YOU. That means exercise, discipline, training, food...EVERYTHING!

If you're embarrased to seek professional help or too proud to admit you need professional help, then maybe she would be better off re-homed with someone that'll have the patience and the commitment Loona needs.

Training doesn't happen in 15 minutes, or in a dayIt takes time and patience and consistency. If you don't put in the work, how can you expect Loona to learn?

You need to buy her an actual crate or she is probably going to end up eating through your dry wall or tear up your flooring..

THAT aside, here is a crate training thread: http://www.itsahuskything.com/t918-crate-training

Instead of asking so many questions, you should go look in the training forum and read some of the posts, as all the stuff we are typing here is in those threads + more info.

What's the purpose of the cage? When does she use it?

That gap on the top kind of scares me a little. How about she tries to get out by there and gets stuck? Suspect I agree that an actual crate is your best bet

The purpose of the crate is not to shut her away all day so she can't bug you. Obviously there is a relationship issue between the 2 of you. Either she isn't getting the amount of attention/exercise she needs or she isn't respecting you and your boundaries. Either way you need to bond with each other more and i'm sure a few more walks isn't going to kill either of you.

I would invest in an actual crate, please. I don't know what part of the world you're in. I'm sure if you told us that we could help you a little better.

I'm pretty sure he is in Europe somewhere, he speaks German is all I remember. This is a lost cause. He is perfectly capable of going and buying a crate at any pet store in Europe, that's not an issue.. He doesn't live in a continent where they are deprived of such things.

Honestly, people, done all we can here. To the original poster, I really think you need to find someone where you live who can come and help you in person and speak with you clearly because the internet is not helping you.
