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.

|Subject: Husky off leash training Thu Jul 18, 2013 2:53 am|| |
I've had Dakota, my 5 year old Husky, since he was about 3 months old. He was never a great off-leash dog to begin with, and there's definitely been a few times where I've had no choice but to chase him down. I've just accepted that his whole life he'll need to be on a leash at all times.
My question is, has anyone had any luck training their Husky later in life to stick around when off-leash?
Any help would be great! Thanks!

Hi, welcome aboard.
Here are the results of a search for Off leashhttps://www.itsahuskything.com/search?search_keywords=off+leash&typerecherche=interne&show_results=topics
You will see tons of threads as this is a huge hot button and controversial issue with Huskies.
The general theme though is that it gets worse as they age. Typically, puppies under 8-9 months will generally stick around, the younger the more so. Once the breed specific instincts kick in at 8 or 9 months, then their running drive and prey drive and genetic ethos will take hold, and they are basically going to be very untrustworthy at this point off leash.
Are there exceptions? Yes. Are there variations? Yes. Is there a contradiction for every rule of every dog breed? Yes.
But the rules come from experiences and experiences come from reality and the general rule is Huskies should not be off leash because their drive and their instinct renders them very untrustworthy and very unsafe, especially in cities. You can't deny that dogs have instincts and drives, and that said, the cards are very much stacked against you if your ambition is to have an off leash Husky.
Browse through those threads though, there is a ton of good info and debates and theorizing and even success story videos.
enjoy the forum
