|Husky of the Month|
Congrats Nikita, Archer, and Cheyanne,
our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|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.

Have you checked out the Huskies 101 thread? It's on the right hand side (above the "Latest Topics" box), and it has a LOT of information there - I think it pretty much covers a lot of the questions from this thread and others.
Make sure you check it out - if it doesn't answer your questions, we'd all be more than happy to help.

I didn't really follow any particular training technique but Caper is walking well with me now compared to when we first met.
For relaxed walks, Caper is allowed to stop and sniff but not pull. I will stop or turn and go in the opposite direction if he starts pulling and will only resume if he gets beside me and puts slack in the leash. I praise him when he is walking nicely (he knows that "good boy" means he did something right, because in the beginning I would treat him every time I said it). You should never move on if the leash is taught, otherwise he will learn that if he pulls hard enough he can get where he wants to go.
If I want to move on, I say "let's go!" / "c'mon!" / "thisaway!" in an upbeat tone and start moving and he would perk up and follow, leaving whatever he was sniffing. He will even leave people and sometimes dogs to follow me! If it's a cat, other prey animal, or a tantalizing piece of garbage, I'll need to repeat and pull slightly on his leash and that sometimes snaps him out of it. I think he knows that if he doesn't respond the first time around he gets pulled. We're still working on the "leave it" command, so I don't feel like I can be in the position to advise here
I will generally say what we are doing when we're walking, such as "right", "left", "straight", "wait", "cross" and praise or treat when he does it. He catches on pretty quickly
For heeling in public places, I started following Olivia's method during the past few days and am already seeing results! Follow link here: https://www.itsahuskything.com/t10192-so-proud-today#156589
If your girl doesn't want to walk, I would look for a reason why. Is there something she's afraid of? Is there something hurting her, such as a thorn stuck in her paw, etc? Each would require a different solution.
