    Barbiedoll, let me preface this by saying my two pups are notoriously known as The Naughty Twins, so dog training is not my great strength. However, we have crate trained most of our dogs, and they did very well with it. Our little guy at 6 y.o. still puts himself to bed in his crate every night. Our Scottie, well, she's a Scottie. She runs the show and shares MY pillow with me every night. Congrats on your new pup. I'm sure he is very wound up and stressed right now, and his behavior is how he's dealing with it. After all, he has a new home and a new family, all of which are strangers to him. I think you'll find with a little time and consistency when training and setting boundaries, he'll be fine. Enjoy him!

    Barbiedoll - I agree with others who recommend crate training. The dog we adopted this weekend was already crate trained and he loves his crate. It is his bed and when he is ready for bed at night, he just goes in his crate and goes to sleep. We don't even have to close the gate door. He moves the pillows around to suit him and you can really tell he feels safe there. Now I have no idea how to go about crate training since he came to us trained already, but he loves his crate. The one he has is a light weight metal crate that does not have obstructed walls and he can see what is going on all around. Good luck with your new little guy!

    Barbiedoll1967 - Oh, the crate training. I was so against it. The vet said do it, the hubby said do it. When i finally broke down and did it, the two Westies (older at the time). They loved their crates! It was their own 'den'. We house sit a couple of other doggies and they love their crates. Got to do it!

    Barbiedoll1967~I agree with Smolder. My Princess is who she is today bc we crate trained her in the beggining (also read somewhere that they wont "go" where they sleep). I hear that Males are a little more stubborn than Females (just like real life LOL) to train but keep at it. I also encourage you to ignore him (and dont make eye contact wit them) when he jumps. Princess has her moments now, but as soon as we put our nose up in the air and dont make eye contact, she calms down immdiately. Keep treats on hand so that whenever he does what you want him to do you can to reward him and give him love. With all that he is doing sounds like he may be a bit younger than 2, either way still a pup. Good Luck :)

    Barbiedoll- congrats on your new dog! Can you call the facility that you adopted him from? They might have some suggestions. And I'm with the others on the crate training. Perhaps just give it a shot so the dog can learn some boundaries, plus feel like he has his own space :-) Also, I'm sure it will be a few weeks adjustment time... he's probably just acting a bit unlike himself due to the new surroundings, etc. And glad you're starting training... huskies are smart, headstrong, and mouthy (we had 2 Nanook and Nakai :-) but they are awesome, awesome dogs, and big mushy loves, too!
