Can you tame a husky?

Huskies can be trained to be the tamest of dogs, when done properly and with enough time and effort.

Huskies (Siberian and Alaskan) were bred to run through the snowy north, as sled dogs. It is in their genetics to be responsive to human training, as well as a pecking order (alpha, beta, etc.)

Puppies ought to be left with their mothers for at least 12 weeks in order for them to learn proper behavioral lessons. This is the first step to ensuring a dog is tame; being with its mother teaches a puppy how to act appropriately and respect the pecking order. It also learns not to bite or be aggressive.

Socialization ought to take place following the first 10-12 weeks of a puppy's life. The more a dog is given the chance to interact with people, children, and other animals, the more comfortable it will become with similar situations. Situations involving aggressive dogs or young children that may harass the dog ought to be avoided.

However, most dogs can be trained to become tame, regardless of their history (such as shelter dogs). Huskies are responsive to kindness from their owners, and with proper training and rewarding, any dog can become tame. Dogs ought to be punished when they do something wrong, and rewarded when they act commendably.

Dogs are "man's best friend" for a reason, and huskies are no exception. If a husky is raised with love and care, it will return the favor tenfold.

We think our husky was successfully mated around May or April. This was her first heat so we aren't sure. What are the signs of pregnancy and what should we expect?

Your best bet is to contact your vet, who can tell you if your dog is pregnant by doing an ultrasound. The vet will perform the ultrasound for around $40 at 4 weeks gestation. While the ultrasound will not be an accurate indication of the number of pups to expect, it will definitely tell you if your bitch is pregnant.

For pregnancy, the first signs are usually swollen teets and tiny lumps begin to form under the teets after a couple of weeks.

The gestation period for dogs is 9 weeks but you must be prepared for early arrival. Towards the end of gestation, you should regularly take the bitch's temperature as it should drop shortly before she starts to deliver.

You bitch will find a dark, confined space to 'den' in. You must create on for her that is safe and quiet. Do not allow her to find her own as she may choose a spot that is dangerous or hard to access. Once she begins delivering, she will not want to move and may become aggressive towards you if you try. Your vet will be able to talk you through the delivery process and the problems to look out for.

Allowing a bitch to come to term in her first heat is not a good idea as the bitch is not fully developed physically or emotionally. This means that she may experience growth problems caused by the pregnancy, as her body is not fully developed, there would be a higher risk to life and she may also be unable or unwilling to look after her litter.
