I know that traditionally jumping on someone is discouraged. However, I'm trying to figure out why this has suddenly started happening. I admit that I have not been spending a whole lot of time with Xena lately and I'm correcting that. However, she has suddenly started jumping up on me and standing on her hind legs followed by a big old hug and trying to crawl into my skin. Is this normal for Huskies? Is this like some kind of new, "I missed you so much, Daddy!" type thing... Input would be appreciated. Smile

My son's husky mix does this with us everytime he comes to visit. And when he stays overnight, he sleeps between us, long stretched out string bean, both paws around one of us in a long sleeping hug, then rolling over and same with the other of us.

3 of mine do that. I will admit i DID train my dogs to jump on people. I also trained them to use a person for balance without knocking said person over. Has to do with my spine and an inability to bend over.

When i go somewhere and come home spider does the jumping hug and licks me under the chin. Its cute. But she also has done it when she gets freaked out and wants me to pick her up.

Emily, I trained my first girl, Sasha, to jump into my arms when I called her and patted my chest. That was many, many, MANY years ago, as in just about 50. I don't remember her being being either overly small or large. But. I absolutely cannot imagine doing that now with Ami. He's playing even when he's not fat. And has been know to flatten me by running at me and body checking me. And splat! Down I go 🙄

So spider when she gets the zoomies AND can convince shafow to join she jumps over him and runs right in front of him. Sometimes he gets her or chases her for short spurts but usually he moves and she ends up on 2 legs ontop of shadow.

I'm a strong proponent of the philosophy that "all four belong on the floor."  Which works most of the time, after I added Sky to my mix we had a short discussion since she'd jump up to put her feet on my, normally, bare leg.  It must have been an effective discussion - though I don't remember it - as she won't "come up" even when invited.

@wolverine79936 Since you suggest that your duties have limited your time with Zena, it's entirely possible that she's overreacting to your return.  Personally I'd view it as an unacceptable behaviour and correct her - if it's only with you then I might allow it on occasion. A Husky is big enough that the possibility that she might "come up" with an older person or child and injure them is too great and the insurance aspect is forbidding.

Sasha has never been one to "come up", her choice is to keep them on the floor.  Avalanche "comes up" when invited for petting and cuddles but "down" puts them on the floor again.  

Zoomies are one thing that I let happen from time to time, chaos in the house isn't necessarily a good thing.  But "Hey!" get's their attention and "Enough" puts the kibosh to it ... it may become a quiet wrestling match but not the destructiveness of "wide open zoomies."

I prefer zoomies to be an outside activity but there are times that isnt possible. What scares me is when they run in and out of the house. Twice spider has slid and hit the sliding glass door with her hip. So far we were lucky and no major injuries.

My dogs do not go outside and get left there. We only let them out when we can leave the door open. We have mountain lion issues that effect all 4 dogs and an eagle could steal splinter.

@lostmaniac so so sooo grateful I don't have to work about large predators. @aljones ditto rattlesnakes. I can let the dogs out to free roam within their fence as long as we are awake and home. And, with zoomies or wrestling, I head to the nearest outside door, open it and hollar "oouuuttt" and out they go! Too much breakable stuff in this house🙄
