Siberian huskies are intelligent dogs. As such, the training of the Siberian Husky must also be smart. While there are many dog breeds that respond well to impromptu training sessions, Siberian Huskies need a system that is more structured and consistent.
Siberian Husky training should start from day one when you bring your Husky puppy (or adopted adult dog) home. This doesn’t mean you need to take out the training treats and prepare for your first “dog whisperer” training session. What it does mean is that, right from the start, you need to instill in your Siberian Husky puppy that you are the boss, the Alpha Dog.
Now, don’t go growling at your puppy and try to act like a dominant dog, as some people try to do. While that method may work for some dogs, I don’t recommend it. A much better method is this: just handle your puppy. Get him used to having his legs turned around and inspected. Open your mouth and inspect your teeth. Fix it; brush her, trim her nails, and clean her eyes. Don’t let your Husky puppy tell you that he doesn’t want to be handled; If he tries to stop you, try again and keep trying until he lets you. Of course, don’t overdo it. If she is sick, sleepy, or unable to do so, leave her alone. Siberian Husky training sessions should be positive experiences for your puppy.
What you do when handling your Husky puppy is teach him to listen to you. When he was in his bunk, he allowed his mother to clean him, push him, and mistreat him. Now, you have taken the place of your puppy’s mother.
Your Husky training will be much easier and your puppy will be much happier if he understands that you are his new “mother”. For more information on Siberian Husky training, visit Siberian Husky Training.
