I don't have time to post much right now but alpha rolls and spraying your dog ARE considered aversives and are NOT permitted to be suggested here. Any further recommendation of these techniques will result in an instant ban.

If you wish to discuss further, please start a thread in the Talk to the Team section.

Thank You,

This behavior is quite odd because during the day (when she's with my mother) she is perfectly content, quiet and relaxed, but in the evening (when she's with me) she acts out of control and bites constantly.
It sounds like she's looking for attention. Even negative attention like scolding can be reinforcing, like a child acting out for attention at school or from their parents.

How much exercise, training, enrichment does she get during the day? Huskies are both very high energy and very smart dogs- they were bred to pull sleds all day! Does she go jogging, hiking, play fetch outside? How do you exercise her brain? If your mom's not doing anything with her, she's probably well rested from doing nothing all day and wants to PLAY when you get home!

Does she get any downtime? Can you put her in a crate or teach her to stay on a bed while you're on the couch- give her something tasty to chew on like a peanut butter kong, antler, raw meaty bone, or Himalayan Dog Chew. You know, start teaching her to relax, how to "be" when there's nothing to "do." Essentially teaching her to have an "off switch."

Also remember to reinforce any behavior that you like- give her treats and attention for calm, polite behavior. Give her what SHE wants for behaving in the way that YOU want.

Question jog the dog with a bike?

do U have a bike?

Bike-jogging is great to get the ants out of an active dog's pants, & a K9 Springer makes it a safe activity.
It puts the dog UNDER the rider's center of gravity, so s/he cannot pull the bike & rider over to fall, or divert U to try & chase something.

https://www.amazon.com/Springer-Dog-.../dp/B0017NM4OE

I do not use the safety-loops [designed to break under pressure] - i clip the Springer to the chest of a Y-harness, or to a head-collar on any dog over 80#.
10 to 15-mph on a relatively level or low-slope path, is a nice pace, that dogs can maintain for some time.
