Forum Rules
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.

PostSubject: Husky ignoring commands...   Fri Dec 21, 2012 4:04 pm

So my puppy is 14 weeks now and she's been a pretty fast learner with her basic commands and house rules. However, she only listens to me Rolling Eyes . Its just me and my husband and when i give a command she will follow through without issue but when my husband tries, she just ignores him. lol...its actually a little funny to me but for obvious reasons it makes him mad. Any thoughts on why our pup wont listen to him?

to give some insight- my theory is that I'm the one who's trained her since we got her at 7 weeks old so my guess is if he spent more time training, she would listen. Any more experienced dog owners have a theory so we can fix this? I want her to listen to both of us.

It's important for him to spend some time training her too. He can't just expect to tell her sit or off every once in a while if she's never been given a reason to listen to him.

I trained (am training...) Pippa and she won't do a thing my dad says because he just pets her occasionally and then tries to give her a command. It doesn't work.

I would think if he spends some one-on-one time with her, she'll start to listen to him too.

Lucian did the same thing with my husband, flat out ignored him. I had him do some training with him, and now he listens to him and myself. When he feels like it of course, lol.

Okay, that's what i thought was the issue too but in my limited puppy experience, i figured its better to ask some more experienced folks Smile . For as much as my husband likes the dog, he's been very hands-off so i think i will try to explain to him what you guys are saying. Hopefully some husband-husky training time together will = much less frustration for him.

lol- right now i think he's convinced that the dog only likes me since she only listens to me. I tried to tell him that she just likes the piece of cheese i have in my hand when i say "Come" hahaha
