How to Train a Husky Puppy to Not Bite

Easy
3-5 Weeks
Behavior

Introduction

Imagine this: you’re playing with your new Husky puppy when suddenly--Ouch! He sinks his little puppy teeth into your hand. Huskies are hunting dogs and as puppies, they are likely to instinctively begin practicing their skills, which include biting. If you have a young Husky, he is likely primed to bite as soon as he gets excited. This kind of behavior is especially a problem if you have young kids in the house. You shouldn’t be surprised if your puppy chases screaming or running kiddos around the house nipping at their heels.

Defining Tasks

What starts as cute behavior in a very young, small puppy can become an issue as your Husky grows and gains his adult teeth. Training your Husky puppy to not bite is crucial to raising a well-behaved adult dog. It may be difficult at first to stop your young puppy from biting and nipping, especially during play time. But if you provide consistent positive reinforcement, you should be able to improve your Husky puppy’s manners within a few weeks.

Getting Started

With this type of command, you need to train your puppy consistently as he is going about his everyday life. Whenever your Husky pup bites or nips you, you should stop the behavior and provide an alternative or reward him for stopping. Make sure everyone in your house follows the same rules so your puppy understands that biting a human is never okay. Depending on the method you choose, you will need treats, toys, or another alternative for him to chew on, such as a soft bone for puppies. Remember to use positive reinforcement. Reward your puppy when he behaves well rather than scolding him for biting.

The No Bite Method

2 Votes
Step
1
Choose a command word
With this method, you will choose a command to use to stop your Husky puppy from biting. You can use a variety of cues, such as “Uh-uh,” “Hey,” or “No bite.” Whatever you choose, be consistent. Always use the same command word for when you want your puppy to stop biting.
Step
2
Wait for teeth
As soon as you feel your puppy’s teeth on you, use your command word and wait until you feel the pressure lessen. In the beginning, he doesn’t have to let go altogether. Once you feel him let up a little, reward him with praise and a treat.
Step
3
Keep it up
Continue practicing with your command word and have everyone in your house do the same. You want your puppy to connect the command word with a treat. Soon, he should start looking for a treat as soon as he hears the command, which will make him let go.
Step
4
Expect more from your pup
When your Husky starts to get the hang of the command word, hold off on the treat until he lets go of you entirely. Stop rewarding him if he only lessens the pressure, so he recognizes that the only way to get the reward is to stop biting.
Step
5
Exchange treats for a toy
After a couple of weeks of consistent practice, start weaning your puppy off of treats as a reward. Replace them with praise and a toy instead so he learns that toys are okay to bite, while humans are not.

The Ouch! Method

Effective
0 Votes
Step
1
Play with your puppy
The most common activity which will cause your Husky puppy to bite is playing. Keep in mind that for young Huskies, play time is about getting ready for hunting. Begin a training session by playing with your puppy.
Step
2
Say "Ouch!"
Wait for your puppy to bite you and then say “ouch!” You should use a high-pitched voice when you do so and then move the part of your body away from him.
Step
3
Replace your body with a better chew toy
You want to channel your Husky puppy’s instinct for biting into another more suitable object. A toy or a soft rope bone is a good choice and can help cue your puppy to the kind of thing that is acceptable to bite.
Step
4
Keep practicing
Be consistent with your actions and keep practicing with your puppy. He may stop biting hard but continue nipping. Start saying “ouch” every time his teeth touch your skin.
Step
5
Reward good behavior
Keep an eye on your puppy’s behavior and when you see him run for a toy while playing rather than biting you, reward him by saying “good dog” or giving him a treat. Remember, rewards for good behavior work much better than scolding for bad.

The Mama Dog Method

Effective
0 Votes
Step
1
Look to nature
When Huskies stay with their mom, she has ways of training them to not bite inappropriately. To get the behavior she wants, Mama Husky will grab her pups by the muzzle or the scruff of neck. If your puppy won’t stop biting, you can look to Mama Dog for some tricks.
Step
2
Gently grab your puppy's muzzle
When your puppy is biting you, gently place your hand around his muzzle. He should freeze or let go of you, as these instincts are part of his biology.
Step
3
Apply firm but gentle pressure
Once your body is out of your Husky puppy’s mouth, place a very light pressure to his muzzle as a cue for your puppy to stop biting. This action mimics what his mother would do.
Step
4
Use the scruff
If your puppy is still struggling to bite you, gently grab the loose skin behind his neck, known as the scruff, and hold. You shouldn’t shake your puppy or lift him up. Just hold his scruff until he freezes. Then cue your puppy to stop biting by applying gentle pressure to his muzzle.
Step
5
Redirect his energy
Once your puppy calms down and stops trying to bite you, give him a toy or a bone to chew on instead. Biting is an important part of communication for your puppy and you shouldn’t expect him to stop altogether. Redirecting his energy is an important part of keeping your Husky puppy happy.

Hi! So, I have a husky puppy that bites a lot, and I mean a lot. When he's excited to see me, bites. When he's relaxed and laying down and I go to pet him, bites. When my toddler cousins try petting him, bites! And only 40% of the time it's light nipping. I have cuts all over my arms from his biting. It's out of control. I've tried every method that I've seen out there and none of it helps at all, it only causes him to want to bite me even more. To be more specific of the methods I've tried, I've blown on his face, yelled ouch when he would bite too hard, light nose tapping, etc. It just makes him bite even more. It's extremely frustrating trying to lay with him or do anything with him with all the biting. The biting is so out of control, I've considered giving him away and I truly don't want to do that. And I can't afford to take him to a professional trainer.

Hello Lilia, Check out the article linked below. Follow the Leave It method - this is going to take a bit to teach him and build his self-control. Don't give up yet. Practice daily, or even several times a day for short sessions. Once he knows Leave It, use Leave It and Out to stop the biting. Right now pup probably thinks you are rough housing with what you have tried so far - which is why he gets even more excited. He needs to practice things that build his self-control and ability to calm himself. Leave It method: https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-shih-tzu-puppy-to-not-bite Once pup knows Leave It and and Out well, use leave it when he bites or looks like he is thinking about biting. When pup keeps going back to biting and the temptation seems too much, use Out and make him leave the area completely (Out means get out of the area). Puppies also tend to bite more when overtired or if they haven't had mental stimulation. Practicing regular training sessions will help tire pup out even more than physical exercise by itself in most cases. It's estimated to be twice as tiring when mental exercise is paired with physical exercise - so teach pup other commands too to take the edge off his energy and promote calmness. Give pup dog food stuffed chew toys to provide a chewing outlet in general - especially during calm times in the crate or when interacting with him so that he has something good in his mouth other than your arm. When pup gets too wound up, put him in a crate or exercise pen with a dog food stuffed chew toy to rest - pup probably needs a break. Puppies tend to get really wound up like over tired toddlers when they need a break. Finally, check out the free PDF e-book AFTER You Get Your Puppy from the link below, as well as the videos of a puppy class I have linked below that. Those resources should help in general with training pup on your own from home. If you have friends with puppies, invite them over and practice the videos together to give the pups the socialization of other people and puppy play - puppy play can also help the biting when the play is moderated to prevent bullying in the group - i.e separate puppies for a few minutes to let them calm down whenever one seems to want a break and another isn't allowing it. www.lifedogtraining.com/freedownloads Puppy Class videos: Week 1, pt 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnhJGU2NO5k Week 1, pt 2: https://www.dogstardaily.com/videos/week-1-part-2-sirius-berkeley-puppy-1 Week 2, pt 1 https://www.dogstardaily.com/videos/week-2-part-1-sirius-berkeley-puppy-1 Week 2, pt 2: https://www.dogstardaily.com/videos/week-2-part-2-home-jasper-sirius-berkeley-puppy-1 Week 3, pt 1: https://www.dogstardaily.com/videos/week-3-part-1-sirius-berkeley-puppy-1 Week 3, pt 2: https://www.dogstardaily.com/videos/week-3-part-2-sirius-berkeley-puppy-1 Week 4, pt 1: https://www.dogstardaily.com/videos/week-4-part-1-sirius-berkeley-puppy-1 Week 4, pt 2: https://www.dogstardaily.com/videos/week-4-part-2-sirius-berkeley-puppy-1 Week 5, pt 1: https://www.dogstardaily.com/videos/week-5-part-1-sirius-berkeley-puppy-1 Week 5, pt 2: https://www.dogstardaily.com/videos/week-5-part-2-sirius-berkeley-puppy-1 Week 6, pt 1: https://www.dogstardaily.com/videos/week-6-part-1-sirius-berkeley-puppy-1 Week 6, pt 2: https://www.dogstardaily.com/videos/week-6-part-2-sirius-berkeley-puppy-1-0 Best of luck training, Caitlin Crittenden

Hello Conlan, Does pup have any history of aggression? Is the nipping purely out of excitement and play or are their any other signs of aggression. If the nipping is related to other respect or aggression issues I would proceed with the help of a trainer who specializes in aggression and behavior issues, who can further evaluate the situation and tailor a training plan to you. If this is aggression related there is the risk of a bite of you do the training yourself without the right help. If the nipping is truly out of excitement and play, then I suggest working on some boundaries and teaching impulse control. Leave It method: https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-shih-tzu-puppy-to-not-bite Jumping and general rudeness - only do this for play biting. For aggression a different approach is needed. https://youtu.be/EcwvUOf5oOg Impulse control: Place: https://youtu.be/omg5DVPWIWo Crate manners: https://youtu.be/mn5HTiryZN8 Structured heel to build impulse pulse control, calmness and respect: https://youtu.be/OTiKVc4ZZWo Best of luck training, Caitlin Crittenden

Hello Diana, First, I suggest working on the Leave It command from the Leave It method from the article linked below for the biting: https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-shih-tzu-puppy-to-not-bite When she gets really worked up and has trouble calming down, use the Out command or give her a food stuffed chew toy in a crate or exercise pen to let her calm back down - young puppies will often act wild when they are actually tired and need a rest time. Out command, "How to Teach a Dog the Out Command" heading part: https://www.petful.com/behaviors/how-to-teach-a-dog-the-out-command/ Second, work on teaching her tolerance to being touched and handled. To desensitize her to touch use her meal kibble. Measure her kibble into a bag (don't grab it out of her bowl), and feed her one piece of kibble at a time as a reward for tolerating touch. Start with areas she enjoys being touched on first, until she is comfortable with those areas, and gradually move onto touches in other areas also. Be gentle and try to make the training fun and relaxing for her. For example, gently touch her side while you feed her a treat - the touch should be brief and stop when the treat is gone. Touch her head and feed a treat. Touch her collar and feed a treat. Touch her paw and feed a treat, ect...until she looks forward to being touched. Best of luck training, Caitlin Crittenden

Hi Caitlyn I have a question, I recently adopted a 15 week husky female, she is very friendly, but when she plays she starts to knit at your face with her teeth. How do you stop this kind of behavior? Also when I put her in her crate when she starts to get to hyper she starts screaming, how do you correctly crate them?

Hello Sattraj, Check out the Leave method from the article linked below Work on teaching Leave It. Leave it will take time to teach but should help him develop self-control, but while he is still learning Leave It use the Bite Inhibition method since that method can be used right away. Puppy biting is normal at this age and will take time to stop. Be patient and consistent, recognizing that you should see a gradual improvement instead of an instant fix. Puppies have to develop impulse control to improve and that takes time and practice. https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-shih-tzu-puppy-to-not-bite Best of luck training, Caitlin Crittenden

Hello Cynthia, Crate pup at night and when you leave, and you can use an exercise pen with some toys in it also. When you cannot directly supervise the dogs together, puppy should be crated or in the pen. When you are supervising, teach both dogs the Out command (which means leave the area) and make whoever is causing issues leave the area as needed. Out command: https://www.petful.com/behaviors/how-to-teach-a-dog-the-out-command/ Decide what your house rules are for both dogs and you be the one to enforce the rules instead of the dogs. No aggression, no pushiness, no stealing toys, no stealing food, no being possessive of people or things, or any other unwanted behavior - if one dog is causing a problem you be the one to enforce the rules so that the dogs are NOT working it out themselves. For example, if pup comes over to your older dog when he is trying to sleep, tell pup Out. If she obeys, praise and reward her. If she disobeys, stand in front of your older dog, blocking the pup from getting to him, and walk toward pup calmly but firmly until pup leaves the area and stops trying to go back to your older dog. If one dog growl at the other, make the one who growled leave the room while also disciplining the other dog if they antagonized them first. Be vigilant and take the pressure off of the dogs - you want them to learn to look to you when there is a problem, and for puppy to learn respect for your older dog because you have taught it to her and not because your older dog has had to resort to aggression or he has to hide all the time. If you want pup to be free but don't want to chase after her while you are home, you can also clip her to yourself using a six-foot leash, so that she has to stay near you and not wander near your other dog. Whenever puppy enters the room, give the older dog a treat while pup is not looking. Whenever he is calm, relaxed or tolerant of Naya also give him a treat. Try not to let Maya see you rewarding him though so that she doesn’t run over and overwhelm him. If you have the time in terms of how long the dogs stay, Place is also another great command to teach pup.

Hello Alexander, I highly suggest crate training. A crate will protect him during puppy destructiveness phases, give him the opportunity to learn good habits (like chewing on food stuffed chew toys), and prevent separation anxiety when done right. It can also help him learn to calm down and self-sooth. When you first introduce the crate there will be a few days of crying. This is normal. Check out the Surprise method from the article linked below to help him learn to be quiet. Also feed him food stuffed chew toys in the crate. You can make several stuffed Kong's ahead of time. Put his dog food into a bowl and cover it with water, let it sit out until it turns into mush, mix a bit of peanut butter (NO Xylitol - it's toxic), or liver paste or cheese into the mush. Loosely stuff the Kong's with the mixture and freeze them. Grab one from the freezer when you put him into the crate for longer periods of time. Surprise method: https://wagwalking.com/training/like-a-crate As great as training, play time and exercise are it sounds like what is lacking is actually time for him to practice self-soothing and calmness - just like any other skill, puppies need opportunities to practice these things with guidance in order to improve at them. A crate is a safe way to practice them. Stay consistent and don't let puppy out when he cries unless you know he truly needs to go potty (even then try to to it let him out when he is barking, wait until he is quiet for a second first). If the whining continues past two weeks you can correct it using a small canister of unscented pressurized air, Pet Convincer, blown at his side through the crate, in combination with rewards for when he quiets down, but most young puppies just need time and consistency to adjust. I generally suggest giving it two weeks of ignoring the crying if you live somewhere where that's an option. After two weeks or if you live somewhere that you cannot let him cry, then I suggest correcting with something like the unscented air pet Convincer (do NOT use citronella) combined with treats when quiet. Only spray a small puff of air at his side and never his face. Best of luck training, Caitlin Crittenden

Hello Sean, Check out the video linked below that talks about jumping, mouthing, and being rough. https://youtu.be/EcwvUOf5oOg I also suggest working on a Place command - where pup works up to being able to stay on Place for 1-2 hours to help build his impulse control and teach calmness. Place: https://youtu.be/omg5DVPWIWo Your attitude and energy while doing this should be calm and confident for pup to respond the best to the training. Expect that pup can do this and work him through the training by being consistent about new rules and expectations and calmly executing them. You will likely need to keep pup with you on a leash for a while when you are home (and crate while gone) so that you and effectively enforce the new boundaries for pup to help him learn. Mouthing and general ride behaviors often aren't true aggression. If you have seen or see true signs of aggression, with pup intending to truly harm you, seek professional help from a trainer who specializes in behavior issues and aggression and has a lot of experience - some of the training will still be the same, but additional safety measures and management, boundaries, and structure will also be needed Best of luck training, Caitlin Crittenden

Hello Brenda, I suggest working on a few things to help him develop impulse control first: Leave It command from the Leave It method...Use this command to tell him to stop or not start biting once you have taught the command well - like the method outlines: https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-shih-tzu-puppy-to-not-bite Out command (which means leave the area), use this command to tell him to leave an area, especially kids' or guests' presence, when the temptation is too much for him. There is a section on teaching the Out command, follow that. There is also a section on using Out to deal with pushy behavior also follow that section once he understands the command, to make him whoever he is biting. If he is biting someone other than you, you can get between him and kids or guests and be the one to enforce it for them. https://www.petful.com/behaviors/how-to-teach-a-dog-the-out-command/ Place command - have him work up to staying on Place for two hours. This is a good general command, teaches calmness and impulse control, and can help with management in general. This will take some time and practice, starting with just a couple of minutes on Place at first. https://thegooddog.net/training-videos/free-how-to-training-videos/learn-to-train-the-good-dog-way-place-command-the-good-dog-training-tips/ At this age the biting could be partially a respect issue too. Some dogs have a strong defense drive and when you apply physical pressure of any kind they will fight back against the pressure instead of submitting and stopping the behavior. It is especially important with these dogs to use methods that teach respect but teach it using body language, consistently, obedience commands, structure, and other things that teach the dog's mind - instead of just getting into a physical confrontation with them. It is also very important for the dog to understand why they are being disciplined and to have the skills to stop themselves. Working on commands like Out and Leave It - that help the dog understand what you are asking of them, and commands like Place, Leave It, and the additional commands I have linked below can help build the impulse control and respect too.

Hello Mariam, First, know that the biting is completely normal and not normally a sign of future aggression at this age. Almost all puppies mouth - which is where they bite to learn about the world around them, learn how to control the pressure of their mouths, initiate play with other puppies, and sooth sore mouths. Before 5 months of age it's completely normal and even healthy. With that said you are not another puppy so biting can really hurt! And puppies do need to be taught not to bite humans before their jaws strengthen around 5 months of age. Check out the article linked below. Work on teaching the "Leave It" command from the :Leave It method - this will help pup learn self-control, which is important for stopping biting. This will take a bit to teach pup so practice frequently and try to stay as calm as possible when pup bites (easier said than done I know). Reacting with anger or excitement can actually get some puppies more excited or cause them to fight back if they don't understand what you are doing - that's why calmly working on something like Leave It is important. Once pup understands Leave It and can do that well, then you can also use the Pressure method found in the same article as a follow-through if you tell pup to "Leave It" and they disobey and continue biting. It's important for the Leave It command to be taught and practiced before using the Pressure method though - so pup doesn't just think you are playing. I suggest working on a few things to help him develop impulse control first: Leave It command from the Leave It method...Use this command to tell him to stop or not start biting once you have taught the command well - like the method outlines: https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-shih-tzu-puppy-to-not-bite Another good command to teach is Out - which means leave the area. This command is good for when the temptation to bite just seems like too much for pup and they need to walk away completely to calm down. This is also a good command to use if there are kids in the house. You can enforce the command for them by getting between them and pup and walking pup out of the room like the "How to Use Out to Deal with Pushiness" section deals with in that article. https://www.petful.com/behaviors/how-to-teach-a-dog-the-out-command/ Many puppies also get really wound up when over-tired (sort of like a toddler having a tantrum). When pup just can't seem to calm down they may actually need a rest time. I suggest crating them with a dog-food stuffed Kong chew toy for a bit during these times. A puppies may also get really wound up if they haven't been mentally or physically stimulated yet that day (such as a training session or focused walk). Puppies generally learn to control the pressure of their bites - called Bite Inhibition, by playing with other puppies while young. I highly suggest enrolling puppy in a puppy class or puppy play group where they can have time to play with other, off-leash puppies in a clean, secure area. Check out the article linked below for tips on when to go and what to look for in a class - many large pet stores also offer free puppy play groups. Call around and see if there is one in your area if you don't want to sign up for an entire class. https://www.petful.com/behaviors/puppy-classes-when-to-start/ Finally, I suggest beginning to teach a Place command (which is like go to your bed). This will be a long-term goal. Start with teaching pup how to stay on their Place for just a couple of minutes, and over the next few months work up to staying on Place for two hours even when there are distractions like guests. Place can make life with a dog a lot calmer and give you a great management tool for times when pup gets really excited or rough. It also helps pup learn calmness and impulse control. https://thegooddog.net/training-videos/free-how-to-training-videos/learn-to-train-the-good-dog-way-place-command-the-good-dog-training-tips/ Best of luck training, Caitlin Crittenden

Hello Rex, First, I highly suggest crate training the puppy. Almost all puppies will cry the first two weeks of crate training - it is new to them and they have to be given the opportunity to learn to self-sooth and self-entertain to prepare them for environments they will have to be in later and prevent dangerous destructive chewing habits that happen without confinement. Use the Surprise method from the article linked below to gradually help him learn to be calm in the crate and to relax by using rewards for being Quiet. https://wagwalking.com/training/like-a-crate Once pup is crate trained then life with both dogs can be a lot easier for everyone. Crate pup at night and when you leave, and you can use an exercise pen with some toys in it also. When you cannot directly supervise the dogs together, puppy should be crated or in the pen. When you are supervising, teach both dogs the Out command (which means leave the area) and make whoever is causing issues leave the area as needed. Out command: https://www.petful.com/behaviors/how-to-teach-a-dog-the-out-command/ Decide what your house rules are for both dogs and you be the one to enforce the rules instead of the dogs. No aggression, no pushiness, no stealing toys, no stealing food, no being possessive of people or things, no bothering another dog when they want to be left alone, or any other unwanted behavior - if one dog is causing a problem you be the one to enforce the rules so that the dogs are NOT working it out themselves. For example, if pup comes over to your older dog when she is trying to sleep, tell pup Out. If puppy obeys, praise and reward him. If he disobeys, stand in front of your older dog, blocking the pup from getting to her, and walk toward pup calmly but firmly until pup leaves the area and stops trying to go back to your older dog. If your older dog growls at your pup, make her leave the room while also disciplining pup for antagonizing if needed. Be vigilant and take the pressure off of your older dog - you want her to learn to look to you when there is a problem, and for puppy to learn respect for your older dog because you have taught it to him and not because your older dog has had to resort to aggression or she has to hide all the time. If you want pup to be free but don't want to chase after him while you are home, you can also clip him to yourself using a six-foot leash, so that he has to stay near you and not wander near your other dog. Whenever puppy enters the room, give your older dog a treat while pup is not looking. Whenever she is calm, relaxed or tolerant of puppy also give her a treat. Try not to let puppy see you rewarding her though so that he doesn’t run over and overwhelm her. Right now your older dog probably feels overwhelmed by pup and because of his age it’s harder for her to handle him and keep up with his energy. She needs to feel like you are the one managing puppy, protecting your older dog from him pestering her, and making his appearance pleasant for your older dog. If you can take the pressure off of their relationship and help their interactions to be calmer, then she may adjust to puppy's presence as he grows, especially when he calms down when older. Don’t expect them to be best friends. The goal right now is calm, peaceful coexistence. They may end up bonding and enjoy each others company as adults later! But they don’t have to play or be thrilled right now. I find that about half of all older dogs find new puppies stressful at first. Many do adjust as puppy matures though and may even become buddies - you have to add structure and boundaries to help their relationship be calmer and not force interactions though.

8 Months

We have a 3 year old, Male, husky/lab dog. He is very well behaved and is fairly submissive towards other dogs, mostly because he has not been exposed to other dogs from bad previous experiences. We decided to get another dog, female, Siberian Husky, she is 8 months old. The person we got her from said she was potty trained, crate trained and could do all kinds of tricks. So far we have only seen her use the house as her personal toilet and bite our other dogs neck roughly while outside. We are working on the potty training but not sure how to handle the biting towards our other dog.

Also on a side note, our other dog has stopped eating food after the new dog came. Any suggestions?

Hello Terry, First, it's important to determine what was going on when the biting happened. Some dogs will mock-bite when playing and rough housing. That type of biting, although not always wanted, isn't necessarily aggression. There will be no bite marks after, and there will be other signs of play like a play bow, relaxed, happy body language, or trying to get your dog to chase her. When that's the case, working on more structured obedience can help, such as Out, Place, Leave It, and Quiet. Teaching her to be calmer using those commands and following through consistently with them can help set a calmer tone in general for your household - it can also help reduce your other dog's stress. Out: https://www.petful.com/behaviors/how-to-teach-a-dog-the-out-command/ Place: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omg5DVPWIWo Leave It method: https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-shih-tzu-puppy-to-not-bite Quiet method: https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-shih-tzu-puppy-to-not-bark If the biting was more aggressive in nature, then it's time to hire a professional trainer who specializes in behavior issue and aggression to come to your home and work with you and the dogs in person.

Very cute! Apollo is a breed that will need a lot of exercise every day. Lots and lots of walks, games of fetch and ball. He'll need the energy burned off all of the time! https://wagwalking.com/breed/siberian-husky. I suggest starting to train Apollo right away: https://wagwalking.com/training/obedience-train-a-husky-puppy/. All of the training methods are good. He'll need interactive toys and puzzles to challenge his brain, too, as he is from the lineage of a working dog. When walking him, train him to heel as described in the Turns Method here: https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-poodle-to-heel/. This serves two purposes in that you use up some of his energy by having him focus and work, and he starts to learn that he needs to listen and obey. Be firm, don't let Apollo become dominant. That is where puppy obedience classes will come in handy. Good luck and have fun!

Oliver is the cutest! Thanks for the question. The truth about puppies is, puppies love to bite. Especially at the age of Oliver when they may be teething. Does Oliver have teething toys? If not, invest in sturdy, good quality toys to soothe the gums. When Oliver attempts to bite, distract him with a toy. Do not get angry with him because the behavior is normal. This is a great article on how to curb biting: https://peachonaleash.com/puppy-biting-whats-normal-whats-not-and-how-to-curb-it/ Remember, Huskies are very energetic dogs who need a LOT of exercise. Make sure that Oliver is getting what he needs and you may find that tiring him out helps. As well, do not leave Oliver unattended with children. Kids may not know how to handle the temporary biting stage that Oliver is going through. Good luck!

Caitlin Crittenden

Hello Jesse, Pup needs to be crate trained and crated when no one is home at this age. Crating pup keeps pup from chewing and swallowing dangerous things, reinforces good potty training habits, prevents pup from developing long-term destructive chewing habits, prevents the habit of barking out the window (if you don't set the crate up there), prepares pup for travel and boarding later in life, and if done correctly - can prevent future separation anxiety. Go ahead and start crate training now in preparation! The longer you wait, the more protesting their will be from pup probably. Starting now will let you ease pup into it before school and deal with any issues that arrive before then. It's also important once pup is used to the crate, to practice leaving pup home alone in the crate, to prepare them for time alone later. You can do this by just going for 30-60 minute walks without pup, to the grocery store without them, ect... To introduce the crate, first, work on teaching the Quiet command during the day using the Quiet method from the article linked below. https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-shih-tzu-puppy-to-not-bark Second, during the day practice the Surprise method from the article linked below. Whenever pup stays quiet in the crate for 5 minutes, sprinkle some treats into the crate without opening it, then leave the room again. As he improves, only give the treats every 10 minutes, then 15 minutes, 20 minutes, 30 minutes, 45 minutes, 1 hour, 1.5 hour, 2, hour, 3 hour. Practice crating him during the day for 1-3 hours each day that you can. If you are home during the day, have lots of 30 minute - 1 hour long sessions with breaks between to practice this, to help pup learn sooner. Surprise method: https://wagwalking.com/training/like-a-crate There will be crying in the crate - it's completely normal, and pup needs time to adjust. You can either ignore the crying for the next two weeks, or go straight to what I suggest below. If pup isn't crying less within two weeks, I suggest following the method below either way. Whenever he cries in the crate, tell him "Quiet". If he gets quiet - Great! Sprinkle treats in after five minutes if he stays quiet. If he continues barking or stops and starts again, spray a quick puff of air from a pet convincer at his side through the crate while calmly saying "Ah Ah", then leave again. Only use unscented air canisters, DON'T use citronella! And avoid spraying in the face. Repeat the rewards when quiet and the corrections whenever he cries. For the biting, check out the article linked below and teach the Leave It command. Leave It command: https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-shih-tzu-puppy-to-not-bite I also suggest teaching pup the Out command: https://www.petful.com/behaviors/how-to-teach-a-dog-the-out-command/ Jumping - Step Toward method: https://wagwalking.com/training/train-australian-shepherds-to-not-jump At this age, pup is most likely biting to get your attention and play., and the issue is pup lacking manners and self-control - in which case I suggest Leave It, Out, and the Step Toward method. If the biting seems aggressive in nature, I suggest hiring a professional trainer with a lot of experience with aggression to help you in person though. Best of luck training, Caitlin Crittenden

Hello Jesse, First, I would speak to your vet and make sure there isn't an underlying medical cause that's leading to pup eating non-food items like the rocks. This can have underlying health causes sometimes. (I am not a vet). This is definitely more common with a puppy than an adult dog though, so it may just be for entertainment. Supervise pup carefully while outside - at this age pup shouldn't just be left unattended in the backyard. Teach pup the Leave It command, reward when pup obeys and leaves the items alone, and use spray a small puff of air from the pet convincer at pup's side whenever they try to eat the items after you have said "Leave It" and they know that command and are choosing to ignore it. Only use unscented air canisters and only spray pup on the side and no the face. Leave It method for teaching Leave It command: https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-shih-tzu-puppy-to-not-bite Out - which means leave the area: https://www.petful.com/behaviors/how-to-teach-a-dog-the-out-command/ Keep pup on a 6 foot or 20 foot long leash while outside with them so that they can't play keep away with the items and you can enforce them leaving them alone. Second, make sure pup has interesting things to do during the day, such as work to get food out of a food stuffed chew toy, learn new things in training sessions, and play games with you.

Thank you for the question. Daisy (and you) will benefit from going to obedience training classes. I would start classes as soon as possible. Taking Daisy to experience the environment of other dogs, people, structure, and focus will give her the tools she needs to refrain from biting. Dogs like to have a sense of leadership for guidance but Huskies are of the dominant type and do need consistent training from a confident pet parent - so the classes will teach you what you need to know as well. Knowing important commands like sit, stay, leave it, and down are essential to a dog's happiness and safety. The mental stimulation of classes is good for a Husky, too. Remember that this breed is highly energetic. If Daisy does not get a long walk daily along with other forms of exercise like fetch to tire her out, she may react by biting as a way to release the frustration of pent-up energy. Walk her often, stimulate her mind, and take her to training. Do that, and I think you will soon see a different dog. Good luck!

Hello Yixssya, Work on getting puppy used to touch and handling. Use puppy's daily meal kibble to do this. Gently touch an area of puppy's body while feeding a piece of food. Touch an ear and give a treat. Touch a paw and give a treat. Hold his collar and give a treat. Touch his tail gently and give a treat. Touch his belly, his other paws, his chest, shoulder, muzzle and every other area very gently and give a treat each time. Keep these times calm and fun for pup. Also, teach family members how to be gentle with him and make touch a positive experience for him so that they don't accidentally teach him fear aggression. Have kids practice feeding treats and gently touching him daily - and teach them not to pick him up or hold him tightly when not working with you to make it a good experience for him. Continue to use the "Ouch" method. At the same time however, begin teaching "Leave It" from the "Leave It" method in the article I have linked below. As soon as pup is good at the Leave It game, start telling pup to "Leave It" when he attempts to bite or is tempted to bite. Reward pup if he makes a good choice. If he disobeys your leave it command, use the Pressure method to gently discipline pup for biting when you told him not to. The order or all of this is very important - the Ouch method can be used for the next couple of weeks while pup is learning leave it, but leave it will teach pup to stop the biting entirely. The pressure method teaches pup that you mean what you say without being overly harsh - but because you have taught pup to leave it first, pup clearly understands that you are not just roughhousing (which is what pup probably thinks most of the time right now), so it is more effective. https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-shih-tzu-puppy-to-not-bite When pup gets especially wound up, he probably needs a nap too. At this age puppies will sometimes get really hyper when they are overtired or haven't had any mental stimulation through something like training. When you spot that and think pup could be tired, place pup in their crate or an exercise pen with a food stuffed Kong for a bit to help him calm down and rest. Finally, teach pup some commands that increase calmness and make giving pup instructions easier. Down-Stay: https://www.thelabradorsite.com/train-your-labrador-to-lie-down-and-stay/ Leave It: https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-shih-tzu-puppy-to-not-bite Out - which means leave the room: https://www.petful.com/behaviors/how-to-teach-a-dog-the-out-command/ Place: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O75dyWITP1s Know that teaching a puppy not to bite takes several weeks to a couple of months, and that's normal. The main goal is for pup to learn by the time they reach 4/5 months - when their jaws begin to get stronger. You should be seeing progress but it may be a gradual progression, it's partially developmental, so keep at it! Best of luck training, Caitlin Crittenden

How to make him not bite us

Caitlin Crittenden

Hello Sanay, First at 4 weeks old, you will need to be super patient with pup. That is a full month younger than when most puppies are ready to go home with a new family and things like bite inhibition should still be taught to pup by playing with his litter mates. You will have to compensate for the loss of that if you don't have the rest of the puppies there also. Sometimes puppies have to go home early due to rejection from mom, ect...but just know that at 4 weeks this is completely normal developmentally for pup to bite a lot! First, if you can find a free puppy play date class, attend one of those with him as soon as he is old enough so that he can learn how to control the pressure of his bite by playing with other puppies. Petco and some other pet stores with training offer free puppy play classes if you call and ask for the schedule. If you have any friends with puppies under 6 months of age, set up play dates with those puppies too. Moderate the puppies' play and whenever one pup seems overwhelmed or they are all getting too excited, interrupt their play, let everyone calm down, then let the most timid pup go first to see if they still want to play - if they do, then you can let the other puppies go too when they are waiting for permission. Check out the article linked below for what to look for and precautions you can take before pup has finished their shot series. https://www.petful.com/behaviors/puppy-classes-when-to-start/ Second, check out the article linked below. Starting today, use the "Yelp" method. At the same time however, begin teaching "Leave It" from the "Leave It" method. As soon as pup is good as the Leave It game, start telling pup to "Leave It" when he attempts to bite or is tempted to bite. Reward pup if he makes a good choice. Once pup is at least three months old (don't expect to use this yet - it's too soon. You will use the bite inhibition method for the next 1-2 months at least), if he disobeys your leave it command, use the Pressure method to gently discipline pup for biting when you told him not to. The order or all of this is very important - the yelp method can be used for the next couple of weeks while pup is learning leave it, but leave it will teach pup to stop the biting entirely. The pressure method teaches pup that you mean what you say without being overly harsh - but because you have taught pup to leave it first, pup clearly understands that you are not just roughhousing (which is what pup probably thinks most of the time right now), so it is more effective. https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-shih-tzu-puppy-to-not-bite When pup gets especially wound up, he probably needs a nap too.

When you spot that and think pup could be tired, place pup in their crate or an exercise pen with a food stuffed Kong for a bit to help him calm down and rest. Also, know that mouthiness at this age is completely normal. It's not fun but it is normal for it to take some time for a puppy to learn self-control well enough to stop. Try not to get discouraged if you don't see instant progress, any progress and moving in the right direction in this area is good, so keep at it. Make sure pup has good and durable teething toys, like the puppy kongs. Best of luck training, Caitlin Crittenden

Luna has a beautiful coat! Firstly, Huskies need a LOT of exercise and mental stimulation. Provide her with both and she may be nicer and more calm around home. So to start, take her for long walks every day. Next, buy her interactive toys that give her brain a workout. An interactive feeder may keep her busy for awhile - you can even feed her one of her daily meals that way. Obedience training is essential with any dog but especially the Husky. Take her to training classes and she'll learn how to listen to you. as well, try some of these training exercises: https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-doberman-to-listen-to-you (The Consistency Method is a good start.) And this one too! https://wagwalking.com/training/not-eat-other-dogs-food All the best!

Yes, this is for certain a problem that you want to take care of. Lobo may have been teething when he started the behavior and now it's a habit. Look at the Redirection Method: https://wagwalking.com/training/not-bite. Can you play with a toy with Lobo when interacting? How much exercise is he getting? This breed of dog is very energetic and will only get more so as he grows. Keep him busy mentally with interactive toys and physically with lots of walks, and games of fetch. Check with your vet to see how soon you can take Lobo to dog training classes, which will be excellent for him. Start working on commands now - he's old enough and doing so will instill respect and obedience: Take a look here to start: https://wagwalking.com/training/obedience-train-a-husky-puppy.

Hello, I am always a fan of the verbal commands. Take a look here at the Bite Inhibition Method and the Leave It Method, which are both good for deterring biters. Ber is at the teething age as well. Make sure that you but a lot of puppy teething toys, made from different textures. Give your pup lots of exercise - the Husky is a working breed and will have tons of energy that needs to be expended. That may help with the biting, too. Good luck!
