Let’s assume you are playing with your pup, and he deliberately bites you on your finger with his teeth.
Because Huskies are hunting dogs, and as puppies, they will always want to practice these skills by biting anything they see.
So if you have a husky puppy, the tendency is there that he will like to bite you whenever he is excited.
This behavior is especially problematic if you have little children in the house.
Do not be surprised if you notice your puppy running kiddos or chases screaming around the house, nipping at their heels.
Most dogs will bite when you move near them when they are eating; this is called food aggression. It is essential to get rid of food aggression in dogs to avoid frequent biting
What you should do
As your young husky develops adult teeth, the biting habit of a young husky can cause a big problem if not quickly checked.
If you desire a well-behaved and friendly husky pup, you must train your dog not to bite.
When your pup is excited, it may be difficult to train him not to bite.
However, if you provide regular and good reinforcement, you should be able to enhance your Husky puppy’s manners within a couple of days.
With this method I am about to discuss, you must train your puppy consistently as he goes about his daily life.
Anytime you observe that your pup bites you or someone around you, caution him and give him an alternative.
Make sure people around you do the same, so your puppy will know that biting a human is not a good habit.
Depending on your chosen method, you will need toys, treats, or another alternative for him to use his teeth on, like a soft bone for puppies.
Always reward or give your pup a nice treat whenever he behaves well.
Employ a command word. This method involves using a command word to stop your puppy from biting. Words like “stop,” “No,” “hey,” and many other command tones
Whatever you choose, be consistent. Always use the same command word when you want your puppy to stop biting.
Let his teeth touch you. Use your command word as soon as your puppy’s teeth are on your hand, and wait until the pressure lessens.
At first, he won’t like to let go off, but once he does that, you must reward him with a nice treat.
Repeat this command method. You should repeat the command word method and have everyone around you do the same.
If you want your pup to connect with the command word, give him a treat.
Soon, he would start looking at the regular reward (treat) as soon as he hears the command, which will make him lose his grip.
Expect more from him. When your Husky begins to get the hang of the command word or statement, hold on to the treat until he lets go of you completely.
Don’t give him the treat if he doesn’t obey you; this will make him understand that the only way to get his reward is by stopping biting.
Give Toy Instead of Treats. After consistent practice, start weaning your puppy off treats as a reward.
You must Replace your treat with a toy and praise, so he will learn that toys are acceptable to bite, while humans are not.
Let him stay with mama’s dog. Naturally, the husky mama dog trains the puppy how not to bite inappropriately.
So allow him to stay with the mama husky to learn a “no bite” lesson.
Grab your puppy’s muzzle gently. Any time your puppy bites when your puppy bit you or anyone around you, use your hand to grab his muzzle gently. This will make him stop and let go off you.
Use the scruff method. Using the scruff step is another trick to stop your pup from biting. Grab the loose skin behind his neck until he lets go off you.
Then cue your pup to stop biting by using gentle pressure on his muzzle.
Channel his energy towards other activities by giving him a toy or other hard or soft object instead.
Biting is an essential part of communication for a young puppy, and you shouldn’t expect him to stop altogether.
Redirecting his energy is a crucial part of keeping your Husky puppy happy.
Do not expect your pup to stop this behavior within a few days; you need to be patient and not scold him when he fails. Your puppy will stop biting if you follow these simple steps discussed above.
