|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.

Hi husky community,
I have my 5 1/2 month old husky male puppy who has this huge fear for SOME people. After observing for a while, he is mainly scared of people who reach out to him or make baby calling noises at him. I understand that I am to ignore his fear behavior and not comfort him when he hides behind me; but this is become a problem during walks. Just last week he was scared by a man who reached out for him suddenly and he jumped back and somehow manage to slip out of his collar. He was dashing off on the street during decently heavy traffic and thank god that i manage to catch him in the middle of the street without getting hit. This was pretty traumatic for me as I nearly lost him and I need some sort of help to alleviate his fear of people.
P.S. He is not afraid of people who ignore him, in fact, he walks up to them and sniffs them.
Photo of him for funs.

You should try and ask people to give him treats when they try and come in contact with him. That way, he can associate being pet and coming in contact with people as a good thing.

I've tried doing that already D: what happens is that he just snaps up the snack they offer and returns to hide behind me, or just ignores the treat altogether.

We had this problem with Bode until he was 6-7 months old. No matter what we did with positive association training, he was just shy. I was really worried about it. He ended up growing out of it for the most part. He is still weary of some people, but he's much friendlier and inquisitive when we come upon random strangers.
I'd say keep doing as much positive association as you can and expose him to as many different people as you can.
