The Husky is very vocal by nature; your furry friend will have no problem at all letting you know just how he feels. Huskies make a variety of noises, including barking, chirping, whining, and, of course, howling. The good news is that Huskies rarely bark, they would much rather howl or chirp. The bad news, your pooch will never get tired of hearing his own voice, but you can bet your neighbors will.
Of course, since Huskies prefer not to bark, they are not exactly the best guard dogs. Sadly, given their personalities, they are far more likely to make friends with an intruder than bark and scare him off. Of course, since barking is the way in which most dogs communicate with you and each other, you should never attempt to completely silence your dog. But, what you can do, is teach your dog to stop barking when he doesn't have a good reason to.
The job at hand is to teach your Husky that it is not okay for him to bark whenever he feels like it. Since barking, along with the other noises your pup makes, are his way of communicating, trying to teach him not to "talk" can be a bit challenging. Keep in mind you should never punish your four-legged friend for his mistakes. Use positive training methods involving praise and treats as these will be far more successful.
Although most forms of training have a very long list of supplies, teaching your Husky not to bark has a much smaller list. Here is your supply list:
The rest is all about continuing to work with your pup until he has learned when it is okay for him to speak and when he needs to be quiet. Be sure you find time to let him cut loose and sing his own song, this will make it much easier for him to remain quiet when he needs to.

We just got our little husky and he’s adorable, but he is constantly whining. When we are playing he is letting out little barks/cries or even when he’s just laying there. It’s like he constantly needs to talk. We’ve taken him to the vet and there doesn’t seem to be underlying health issues. How do we stop him from constantly barking or whining?
Hello, it is hard to say why handsome Hudson is constantly barking and whining. It could be his way of showing that he is still nervous in his new home, missing his mom and littermates, or just a little antsy in general. Huskies are pretty energetic dogs and need a lot of physical and mental stimulation so be sure to exercise him with walks and games of fetch as a distraction. Buy him mentally stimulating toys as a mental challenge and be sure to start him with obedience training right away (his working dog lineage will help him to thrive at training). Take a look here at the Speak and Quiet Method as well: https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-husky-to-stop-whining. Start him with commands like https://wagwalking.com/training/sit and https://wagwalking.com/training/stay. Happy training!
