|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.

Sometimes my husky Jake will hunt for mice or go after squirrels and rock chucks. The other day he had a rock chuck trapped under a downed tree and was trying to dig down for it. After awhile I tried to get him away from it and he growled and nipped at me like he never has before, it wasn't playful at all. I've never seent his kind of aggression towards me before, even other times he has had an animal cornered like that. Has anyone else had this kind of experience?

Guarding something they want is pretty common. I assume he was after the critter for a while before you came to remove him? If that's the case then he had a lot of time for his excitement to build which makes him feel like the stakes are higher thus making him feel more like it's worth guarding. My latest will give up most stuff like toys and will call off scents pretty well but once he's invested in things, like he has already eaten half that apple that he got off the ground then he's more willing to stand his ground. The goal is to not let him get invested in what he is after or has to the point he is more focused on it than you. How I am dealing with mine and the apples is to not let him have the apples or go near where they are (I have two apple trees in the back yard, so not a convenient endeavor). If he can't listen to me where the apples are concerned then he doesn't get the luxury of sitting out there and gorging himself on them.

Yes I gave him about 10 minutes at it than tried to get him out of there. After trying for awhile I went off to grab some treats to redirect him and he ended up giving it up. Thanks for the advice!

Damn. My response disappeared. Not that it adds much - basically Jenn is spot on. With the persnickety one, if I catch him just as he notices a bone in the lawn, a simple "eh eh eh" or "let's go" or even "Z'evi" in a warning tone is enough to make him leave it. But...let him sit down and start licking it (all he can do with the muzzle) and he is in full guard mode. Including lunging, snarling and snapping. (Did I mention, he wears a muzzle
) Wayne learned that lesson yesterday when the idget found Ami's leftover dinner sitting on the floor. And, to think....we were considering a trial without the muzzle. At the moment, when hell freezes over comes to mind.
