And when it comes to the process of how to train a Siberian Husky, many will find their adventures unforgettable and often for the wrong reasons. Folks, I am not going to sugarcoat it: you need a lot of patience and diligence when learning how to train a Siberian Husky. These dogs can be very, very stubborn and that can make training a chore. With that said, it is certainly possible to train a Siberian Husky or else the dog would never have become domesticated much less a reliable lifesaving service animal.

So, if you are seriously up to the task of how to train a Siberian Husky, here are some insights on how to do just that.

The Siberian Husky was bred to run, which means it will have a tremendous amount of energy. You do not want this energy to ever become pent up, so it will need regular exercise. (If it is just a puppy, then toys can be given to it to keep it busy.) Actually, a lot of exercise will be even better since a husky that is a little worn out from its exercise will be more likely to go along with its training plan with little hassle.

Crate training this breed early is a good thing because the dog will appreciate it has a nice little room of its own in which to sleep, eat, and until it is housebroken, eliminate. Since this dog is prone to be anxious, it is better it runs in circles in its crate than all through the house.

As far as how to train a Siberian Husky for regular housebreaking and eating, you will need to set up an official schedule during the day and stick with it. As soon as the dog is used to its schedule, it will not make demands on its own as to when to eat and when to go. Once again, this is a stubborn dog so you will need to be very firm with how you schedule train it or it will do what it wants, when it wants. That would not be the description of a dog that is enjoyable to be around!

Obedience command training should be done with a clicker and treats. Both will get the attention of this free minded dog and enhance its ability to listen. Clicker training will instill proper command behavior which will be a plus when the time comes for it to listen to you without giving it a treat.

You need not ever lose your temper with this dog as dog whispering command training would be more effective and come with no risk of an aggressive response. And yes, this dog can be aggressive so do not encourage a poor temper from it.

Socialization training will aid in calming this dog down. It was bred for rough conditions so it might not have the social skills of other breeds. However, if you invest the right amount of time into socialization training, you will discover this dog goes along with humans and animals quite well.

Those willing to put the time and effort needed to correctly learn how to train a Siberian Husky will be very glad they did what they did. This breed can make a great pet once effective training has been imbibed. Keep that in mind and you will never lose your motivation for training this exquisite breed.
