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.

Recently i got my first husky puppy. He was ony 5 and a half weeks old, and i was unaware that that was a very bad thing to do, the breeders called and said almost everyone had gotten theres and that we need to get ours. they said he had been to the vet and got his first set of shots and is healthy. hes been doing pretty good with training and all and im aware he as very young which will lead to a few issues.

He has been nipping ad bitting and attacking my legs arms and hands very badly this past week. i know he is teething and wants to chew. when he does this i tell him no and stick a toy in his mouth instead but he still insists on biting, and biting hard. Can anyone give me tips on how to stop this behavior? im aware huskys are different from others dogs and i want to make sure i do it right.

Stop playing with him right away, you can put him in time out (a room that is dark with a door works) of course tell him no, yelp as if he is really hurting you (yes like a dog)... there are a lot of subjects on this issue.

This is an unfortunate consequence of getting the pup early. He's likely not teething yet, he's just playing. Usually in the sixth, seventh, and eighth week the pups really start to play together, and learn from each other and from mom appropriate play techniques and how hard to bite or not bite. Since you received yours so early it hasn't learned this yet. If you watch a female with pups, when a puppy bites too hard, she will yelp as described above, and then grab the pup by mussle and hold it closed. She doesn't bite, she just holds it closed for several seconds - this annoyes the pup because they don't want their mouth held closed. Removing yourself is a good option, but I would start with the other first. You need to teach the pup how to play appropriately, not just how to play with you. Otherwise you are going to have more issues later when you try to socialize and your pup is going to get bit a lot by other dogs because it plays too rough.

I second the yelp or "ouch!" and holding his muzzle shut for a few seconds. My breeder demonstrated this for me when my pup started sinking her teeth into my skin and it really works. I always give her a plush squeak toy after to redirect the urge to bite. I got mine a little early at 7.5 weeks and she already has a soft mouth!

Also, if you have any neighbors with healthy puppies that are UTD on shots, you might want to ask for a play date. Another puppy can help train yours to have a soft mouth. My neighbor has a 12 week old Alaskan Husky and we have daily play sessions.
