I seriously thought it would me much easier to potty train a husky as smart as Mishka. She has never poo'd in the house, but pees everywhere! At least once a day. She doesn;t really tell me when she has to go. I just know and watch the clock, too and let her out a regular intervals. Apparently that is not enough! Admittedly, the humans have made stupid mistakes (mainly my husband who waits too long after hard play to let her out).....but honestly, it's more like I cannot get my boots and coat on fast enough sometimes to stop her.

She has started to pee on our driveway (concrete) and just not bothering to head for the grass. If she is on lead, she will make it. She peeds on the porch just outside the door; she has peed on my bed twice, one the staircase, and yesterday, on the bench cushion on in my mud room! Basically, anywhere she feels like it. And yes, she will pee in her crate.

What can I do????

Wish i had something helpful to but i'm having a similiar problem with bella in the house still! She'll mark and just down right pee in the house, even right after shes let in from being outside. It sounds like some of Mishka's peeing may be marking like Bella. Bella also peed on my bed her first week home, stared straight at me and squatted right before bed. All i could do was yell what the hell, after a sheet change she expected to sleep in bed! Anyways with my two I have noticed they need a limit of at least 20 minutes outside to empty out, I know mishka is alot smaller though so im not sure how long she should be out. Bel and Jas get hooked to their cables and i close the door partially otherwise they stand at the door wanting to come back in or expecting you to come out and rough house. But this is just what i do.

in regards to peeing in the crate, if you dont already have one i would highly suggest a crate divider. It worked wonders for Kiba. Almost immediately we saw a difference in her crate accidents when we put it in. We have had a very hard time training her outside the crate and in the house though. We just FINALLY got to a place where she's trained (no accidents for over 2 weeks!). Be diligent and don't let it discourage you from continuing to do the right things. the hardest thing we struggled with was how fast she would go before we could stop her and her not really letting us know clearly that she needed to pee. it may sound basic but i think what ended up helping the most was us working her to get her association with peeing outside with high value treats. it seemed to really motivate her (and still does) to go outside. We have been very careful to catch her peeing outside and immediately rewarding her for it.

Good idea with the food. I will try that. As far as the crate goes she can get out of the divided wire crate so I moved her to a solid travel crate. Not sure how I can divide it ?? She actually improved a little with the solid crate as far as calming down.
I will see if I can find a smaller one in town.

I just put boxes I had laying around in the big plastic crate to make it smaller. Not sure if your pup will chew/eat it though.

Some pups just take longer to get potty training through there thick little cute fuzzy heads too. The mutt my aunt adopted about 10 yrs ago didnt pick up on not going in her crate for a few weeks at least and that was with my dog Nova being a role model of what to and not to do! Nova got mad at us for telling her no one time she got up on my aunts bed and peed also so I kinda think that might be a husky traitshe was a husky shepard collie mix with all the husky attitude! Good luck, if you find something that helps more please do let me know!

I had the same experience, Mostly with my female. She had no tells that she needed to go, she would just run around and then all of the sudden squat. sometimes right after we would come in from outside and she would have gone a couple of time while out there. We where going through puppy classes at the time so I asked our trainer for advise, i had tried the puppy training pads, the spray and we had a crate. the crate worked for at nights but during the day she wanted absolutely nothing to do with it. She was fine sleeping there at night but during the day she had to be able to follow us around. the treats where the key. A lot of praise and telling her how good she was and really good high quality treats, we used the same for her classes and she absolutely went nuts when i would get it out to cut up more. I ended up using a organic food that came in a roll like sausage that i would cut up into treat sizes. smelled a lot but it must have been a good smell because she would do just about anything for it. Trainer said she was always one of the best and fastest to catch on in class. I give credit to the treats, and her amazing intelligence. But for those accidents that do happen, If you haven't found something to take the smell and stain out of the house i highly suggest natures miracle urine destroyer available at petsmart. Worked like a charm. I even put some in the water when i shampooed the carpets when the housebreaking was done. Never had that dog pee smell in my house.
