advice on dogs and their behavior

So i have a Husky, ever since we got him fixed he has been real weird towards people... he likes to growl and bark alot.. he has also grown real posessive of his pillow bed we have for him.... he started nipping at my son and i found out tonight, that he bit my son on his hind end and drew blood.. is there any way to put a stop to this behavior??? i always told myself that if he ever bit someone i would have him put down.. i dont want a dog that is a liability.. and i dont want this to continue... and ideas????

I can contest to huskys being a little odd. My best friend has a female husky, she is 10 now. Towards I would say 6 and older she has just been intolerable at times. I take care of her at times and she has bitten me or nipped at me when she doesnt want to do something and around strangers she barks and isnt nice. I am not sure what happened or when it happened but when his parents arent around and I have to take care of her she is just intolerable.

Unfortunately I think he is going to be that way. I know fixing made my pit bull calmer, but he is not good with strangers at all. He is an awesome dog but he is also intolerable at times. I got him as a puppy and he was trained well but he humps the living daylights out of completely random people that come over and there are times when he acts like he wants to attack someone and I dont know why so I am very careful and dont let him get away with anything, he knows the consequences, that prong collar is a good correcting tool lol.... He is bad he knows it goes on for a period of time and he sits next to you acting like an angel.

Huskys just seem to me like they are moody more. Tasha is super moody and when she doesnt get her way its awful.... Its like at this point you have to give in to her just to get through your day.... I feel bad for you, I think if you have some 1 on 1 training it may make he/she better. Sometimes I think dogs need to be put back in their place, once they know they are more dominant than you thats when it starts a one way street with no turning around lol...

well he knows i am the dominant one.. he will roll over and show his belly when i kneel down to him or go to pet him while he is laying down.. he has been a real good dog, but like i said, i dont need a liability.... im gonna give him some time, but if he bites agan, and draws blood i feel i will have to put him down..

I have two Rottweilers and I can tell you this much, you must be the pack leader being the "dominate" one is not enough. Fear breeds contempt and unreliable behavior. I wonder how much the dog is treated like a dog and not "one of the kids". How much exercise does the dog get? Do you take the dog for walks? The dog could be bored, Husky's are bred for sled pulling ability and they have a very high energy level and a strong will to boot. A daily vigorus walk could do wonders for your situation. I also must say as much as I love my Rotties, if they ever bit one of my kids it would be all over but the crying. Good luck and best wishes for you and the dog.

Hey rob, We have 2 year old daschund. he was always eager to try and snap at me when I would get close to my wife. Hes basically her shadow. He bit me in bed one night and my fingernail was half stripped off. God it hurt!! Well, after he awoke from his flight across the room into the wall, we had him fixed. It still took a while for him to calm down, but I think hes gonna be fine. Hasnt snapped at me in a long time. Amost a year. He still goes nuts when someone new is around, and he must warm up to them, were gonna work on that this summer. There is such thing as Doggie Prozac. No lie. Could be a possibility for you. Ask your vet. they might can reccomend something for you to do. It sucks having a dog you cant take anywhere cause of his attitude.

We had the same issue with a beagle we have. Took her to dog training class learned basic things such as the sit stay and the extended down. I take all three of my dogs on 6-7 mile bike rids numerous times a week. I ride the mountain bike while they have harnesses and leashes on. The exercise is a very important thing. Just have to be the dominate one. Check out some of Cesar Millan's stuff that dude is a genius with dogs.
