New 4 month old Husky
Hi new here...
I now have 3 Siberian Huskies, 15yr old male (Nikki/Nikk), 2yr old female (Kali), and a new addition 4 month old (Kodiak).
I had no idea I was getting a new puppy. My wife and I had planned to get a new pack mate for our 2 year old, as the inevitable approaches with our beloved 15yr alpha male Nikki. We figured if we waited for after the fact, I'd feel I was trying to replace my very old friend, which can never be replaced. We felt this would be better for the 2 year old as well as us. It's been a fun couple of days.
We went to the breeder, as we had just asked around about recent husky litters in our area. When we saw him, we just couldn't resist. Don't bother looking when you're on the fence about a new puppy, you end up holding a new puppy in your hand on the way home saying, "how the **** did this happen?"
I came here to refresh my memory in regard to crate training, which was rough at first but is improving. Wow this little guy is a howler, he sounds just as much the wolf as he looks.
Kodiak, was the last of his litter (was being held as a stud), and was kept with older/bigger pups from another litter. He is VERY shy with people and runs away. This bothers me, as both my previous huskies were obtained at 8 weeks and flew to the first human they saw. His confidence is improving, but, I have never seen this before. He is also suddenly confronted with 2 other full grown huskies, who after some posturing, are getting along just fine. Has anyone dealt with a shy pup? Any suggestions?
