|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 there guys
I have a 2 month old red and white husky (Rory). I’ve been training him and he responds to the sit stay down come gentle up ok no heel commands. However, sometimes if there are other people around or if he’s chewing a toy and sometimes just like that he will not listen to me. I use time out and no and putting him in a separate area as punishment but I’m not sure if and by how much that is working. Any ideas suggestions??

He’s being a typical husky! That will never go away, huskies are known for being stubborn and ignorant! And I’m sure every one here will say the same!
As the saying goes...

You have to give him something that's more interesting than what he's doing like a treat. Huskies are notorious for only following commands if they know they will get something out of performing a command. Using punishment for ignoring you won't do anything.
Try using a toy he likes more than the one he's chewing on, or a treat, to get his attention onto you.

Reward good behavior, redirect bad. It will take time to get training with distractions down. You can practice by going to the park (if able) and working through commands on leash. Reward with treats/kibble or by allowing the continuation of a walk and sniffing/exploring. You can use the leash to redirect if being ignored. When someone comes over you can use that time to train as well. Have the people ignore him and only pet if he is patient and sits. Everything he wants to do he must earn. Run through commands to get the daily meals. Must perform to go out the door. You don't have to make your dog fat with treats to get good behavior out him. You just have to work on making good behavior the routine to life.

Ditto to everything above. And.... He's still a baby at 2 months old! Also. Sorry to say, the teen years will be worse. May the force be with you

Thanks for the input guys! Made him follow the down command before breakfast and he resisted so much. Stubborn bugger. Finally gave in
