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: Seasonal-shoe grabbing?    Sat Dec 22, 2012 4:15 pm

My husky has decided that since it's snowed he should grab my boot and wrap his legs around my foot... I have NO IDEA why he does this. I'm assuming he just wants to play and wants attention, and being that I'm 23 I don't so much mind-because if I fall I have less of a chance of getting hurt. Having said that, he sometimes does it to my friends when we're hiking off leash, and recently has begun doing it to our guests in my home. It would be one thing if it was just me, but I do NOT want him to hurt someone and this can be quite dangerous-both indoors and while hiking. I have tried over and over again to correct him- but he's basically giving me the finger. LOL. It's frustrating because he doesn't do it all the time! Does anyone else have this issue? Is this "Normal" for a husky? And what worked for you guys!? Any thoughts/ideas are appreciated! Smile

Sophie used to chew my shoes when she was a pup but I'd just tell her no and give her a toy to chew on instead. Kay will pounce and grab my feet wanting to play but I just ignore her and she stops. Sorry I'm not really much help, hopefully someone will chime in and give you some advice. Smile

It's so frustrating! He doesn't touch our shoes- unless they're on your feet! It's become a very big problem- esp with my aunt as she wears her shoes in our house Mad

I don't have any good advice unfortunately, but I know your pain, Luna has just recently started doing this as well. I'm hoping it's just part of the teenage phase and she will outgrow it, it is super annoying.

haha good look with the "outgrowing" it! I was hoping for that too... mine just turned three! LOL The thing is, when I do correct him he just doesn't get it- its just part of the game now lol. THANKFULLY he doesn't do this often! LOL

Lola loves my feet especially when I am wearing Uggs. I've been telling her no and redirecting to a toy. She is getting better.

I wish that worked with mine! It's like he's in his own little world and just tunes me out when he's in this prey-drive mode lol

That's how maya is when she's bullying another dog, It's so hard to get her to stop.

We had a break through this morning! Very Happy We were at the park playing off leash- just he and I this am and he started to try and grab my feet. I said ot ot NO. Firmly, and he stopped and put his head down, laid down next to me and sulked! So then I said yes! Good boy! Ok lets go, and we played again- I think he MIGHT be getting it! LOL Very Happy ... there's hope anyway right? haha
