Forum Rules
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.

Husky not getting along with new puppy. Empty
PostSubject: Husky not getting along with new puppy.   Husky not getting along with new puppy. EmptyTue Jan 21, 2014 7:17 pm

I currently have a year and a half old spayed female husky. I have had her since she was three months old. I have tried socializing her when she was younger but I think I messed up her view on other dogs. I took her to a dog park around once a week and she always stayed right by me and if other dogs came up towards me she was very defensive toward them. If I petted the other dogs she went crazy. If we go walking she does fine. If a dog comes up I can tell her leave it and she will ignore them and keep going. If it was ever a small group of dogs at the dog park she would do fine. Other than she is very submissive and would lay down anytime the other dogs tried to play. Well I decided to get my Dad a puppy since he has gotten so attached to my husky. I did a lot research on how to introduce the new puppy. We met on neutral ground and walked them side by side. They did fine. Then once we got home I let Genesis back in the house while I let the puppy go out in the yard for a little. Once I brought Mya(puppy) into the house that is when the trouble began. Genesis will not calm down when Mya is in the living room. Genesis goes crazy(showing teeth, growling, hair standing up, and tail tucked). Now when I try to let them play together outside Genesis keeps going for Mya's neck. If I can keep Genesis' attention I can keep her calm. If it breaks for a second she goes crazy and runs after Mya. I have no clue what to do. I have tried to find a good trainer in my area but all we have are puppy classes and the few trainers I have talked to says that there isn't much they can do since they are both female which I find ridiculous. There are plenty of people that have more than one female and they get along. Any advice would be great.

Check out a video on youtube titled "introducing a new dog into a home with other dogs" by leerburg -great video, you have done plenty of good steps so far though. Female/female will always be much harder than another combo. To me your dog is defending her territory and the introduction may have been rushed to her. Take it really slow, crates for each dog, separate rooms to start, no toys or items of possession out is what I would do. If you end up watching the video it explains more and better ideas. Good luck, it is possible even if it takes time!

If you can get a video of the play, that would definitely help.

Huskies play extremely rough - biting for the neck and tackling to the ground is fairly common in husky world. My husky, Juneau, is extremely rough with my fosters.

I had two females that didn't get along or share toys - but by the time my foster got adopted, they were able to share bones. It is possible to have them get along, just takes time and patience.

Browse the training thread, there are several similar topics for this.

Thanks for the info. They are currently getting along somewhat. Sometimes it gets a little heated and we split them up but so far so good.
