|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.

|Subject: Breaking/Redirecting Focus? Sun Sep 04, 2016 11:17 pm|| |
So I am quickly learning that the "death stare" misplaced focus is completely a Husky trait - and Kairo has it. I can do NOTHING to get her to look at me short of having food (and I cannot hand back a fattened husky at the end of two months).
I know what games I played to get Ember's attention on me, and it took time but it was easy.
These games do not work for Kairo. They work as long as the food exists, but once they are gone, she will not look at me or react to any sound I make. She spends hours staring over the baby gate (usually at nothing, it would seem) and the rest of the time pacing inconsolably.
I am working on her exercise to stop the pacing, but I am not seeing any shift in focus. If anything, I am finding her LESS willing to look or work with me. I am hoping this is a time issue, but I need to know if not, how to stop it and redirect her focus.

To be honest, it sounds like she is missing her dad. Keep working with her and hopefully you won't get her trained right before your brother gets home! lol

All of this makes sense. I will keep working with her. Today she seems a little more settled even though we haven't worked as much. Maybe I jumped in a little too fast.
