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.

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!

Exercise the bee-jeepers out of them. Really, a tired husky is a good husky. Enjoy the ride:)

I was thinking of asking the same question about my pet Keeper and while I was in Alaska, thinking I would find my answer there, found it difficult to identify what Pure Husky was. I found what I think were twins of my Husky mix that had the same floppy ears and talked with the same sound but I will never know for sure. I registered here the day after I had to put my my Keeper to sleep. I am not sure how much Husky was in my Keeper but I am convinced he was pure Husky in his hart and he is flying through the snow with all his brothers and sisters. I do think that any Husky or Husky mix makes a perfect, unique personality and I look forward to finding another perfect Husky/Husky Mix for my next pet. I definitely don't know if your dog is pure but I am sure the Husky in him will always be true to you, he is beautiful.

Oh Koa is a red or liver, just super light, we have many reds in the group and many are as light as Koa, it is a common and accepted coat color for huskies.

Hi my name is Saraina, I’m a brand new husky owner. I have a 8 week old pup named Indica. She’s definitely a handful and any advice anyone has to offer would be helpful. I know she is young and has a lot of training and learning to do but I’d like advice on where to start.
She bites the hell out of me, chews on everything and does not listen to anything I tell her especially the word “No” when she’s in a playful mood...

Hi,

I have recently started training a husky mix to be my next service dog. I have had two labs in the past. I wanted to try a different breed of dog this time, but find that it is more difficult to train him. Not because he is unwilling; I just know less about huskies. I am glad to be here and would post a picture but I am not really sure how to resize it.

Depending on where it is hosted it should resize itself when you post. There is a sticky on how to post pictures. When you are on the main page believe it shows up at the top right of the page.

Huskies tend to be notoriously bad service dogs and often can't pass the test. They are very smart, too smart. But they are also very independent and can be exceptionally difficult to really solidify in some tasks depending on the type of support you are trying to train them for. People using them for emotional support can often find themselves facing far more anxiety since they have such a demanding exercise need, can't be trusted real well off leash so may run away if in public and leash is dropped. They also have a super high prey drive that may cause them to act out around small critters. You've definitely got a task ahead of you. We have a lot of training tips though if you do a search. You are definitely not the first to try to make a husky a service dog. A few have done alright. Many gave up and got a second dog to be their service dog though and just kept the husky as a companion and playmate for that dog.

Thank you Twisterll,

I know that Sly will be harder to train, but after trying a GSD and failing. I am willing to give this baby a shot at it.  I know that if he doesn't make that cut that my step-dad is willing to keep him as a pet.  But so far so good.

He's definitely got something mixed in him like bull terrier which may actually help to even his energy and trainability out. Good luck and keep us posted. It's always nice to hear how things go. Service dog training is a great dedication and there are a lot of techniques that can be useful to those who aren't training theirs to be service dogs that could benefit us all I think.
