The Limits To Siberian Husky Obedience

Siberian Huskies are valued for many excellent temperament and physical characteristics; among those are intelligence, endurance, strength, friendliness, speed, and agility. What is not among those characteristics is extreme loyalty, and hence, Siberian Huskies are known to have limits to their obedience. In fact, Siberian Huskies are not classified as "obedient" by dog standards at all. Siberian Huskies do excel at feats of athleticism and agility, but would only be expected to do so under controlled conditions. Only the most skilled obedience trainers have a prayer of succeeding at making a Siberian Husky obedient, and even for them the success is often tenuous at best. The average owner is simply not up to the task of fully mastering the Siberian Husky. [...]

Sealyham Terriers as Good Dog Students

There are quite a number of dog breeds that are very challenging to train. This is because it is somehow an inherent trait of dogs to have a mind of their own and to be obstinate. If these dogs are given the free hand to become what they are supposed to be, then they will grow up to be unruly dogs that their owners can't control. However, as with every dog breed, a modicum of training can turn one bad dog to a good one. Of course, the best results can be achieved if the training of such type of dogs is started as early as possible. Even if a certain dog breed is said to be the most independent of all dog breeds, there is really no dog that can't be bent with the right kind of training at the right time. [...]
