I have a 5 month old Siberian Husky and she has a real problem with biting me and it is getting more aggressive and not in a playful way. I took her to a training school and they said she is untrainable and not a safe dog. I have a hard time believing they would know that at 5 months old. Can anyone help me with this problem. I would hate to have to get rid of her because I do love her but this situation is getting worse. I don't know that to do. PLEASE, PLEASE HELP!!!
I beleave your trainer is UNEXPERIENCED or UNEDUCATED! I agree..go get another trainer... Use tender touches.. let the pup..realize your hands are for feeding and rubbing..not for chewing or playing. Hand feed the pup as often as possible... so the pup gets the point. (You don't bite the hand that feeds you) I would get the pup a real meat bone from the butcher... it usually does the job for a malamute or husky.. They chew for days and days on it! Happy Thanksgiving... It'll work out!!!!!!
She has tons of toys and all kinds of bones but that doesn't seem to work. I have tried the smack on the nose and all that does is make her come back at me even more. I have even tried holding her mouth shut and saying no, no bitie. It's like jaws coming at you when you let go.The problem with the spraying her with water is that she loves water. It just amazes me because I had a Siberian Husky before her and she was such a sweet girl, like Huskies are suppose to be. I'm beginning to seriously wonder if she is imbred. I will try another trainer and see what happens. Thanks for your input.
It's hard to believe that a 5 month old dog could be considered untrainable. What is your dog's behaviour around other people, and animals? I would try another trainer, and seek the advice of a professional behaviourist, and then maybe you'll get some results. Good luck with your dog.
I would look for a different trainer as well, and preferrable one who is an animal behavoirist. Five months old is too young to give up on this dog. But if the dog has not had good solid diciple up to this point, you are going to have to work hard. What is cute when they are 8 weeks old, is suddenly not so cute when they are 5 months old. Get someone to teach you how to roll the puppy. You must take the roll as alpha of the pack, or your problems will just get worse.
He's your friend,your partner,your defender your dog.You are his life,his love,his leader. He will be yours faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.You owe it to him to worthy of such devotion
well, i'm sorry to hear this, but the dog can be trained. it just needs obideance and a good trainer, try new punishments, i know it sounds mean but it works, try it, hit her nose, yell @ her, nothing to mean right? how old is this dog, if its young u can easily train it, if it's older, it might be harder, but not impossible, it can always learn! good luck!
Find a different trainer.... NOT a petstore obedience class trainer, but a real certified trainer. For a list of trainers in your area, check out http://www.apdt.com (Association of Pet Dog Trainers)
As far as working with a nippy puppy....(I have bulldogs which can be some of the mouthiest pups out there) keep a small nylabone or other chewy with you at all times. When your pup bites, say NO and immediately put the chew toy in her mouth. It may take a week, but id you are consistent, this method will work.... puppies will bite, it's up to us to teach them what things are acceptable to bite... redirecting a bite from you to a toy is the best way. I have yet to have this method fail me when done correctly... the key again, be consistent, and never let her get away with biting without the correction and redirection.
