Aggressive Husky

Hello everyone I just adopted a few weeks ago a 9 months old Siberian Husky. I am facing a lot of trouble training him, he won't listen to comends, at first he would only listen to sit but now he doesn't listen at all. He's very agitated and sometimes gets aggressive when playing. I remember that one time I was just throwing some balls to him and he suddenly jumped and tryed to bite on my hand, I had a really hard time to stop him. And whenever I come back home or try to put a leash on him so I can walk him he starts jumping on me and biting on my clothes. He also keeps pulling on the leash during walks. I don't really know what to do he is so agitated and ravages the garden so my parents decided to leash him in the yard. I don't think this is good for him, he won't be getting enough exercise and this might get him even more agitated. I don't really know what to do.

Yikes, you have your hands full. I’m in no way a husky expert but was in a similar situation after adopting a young husky who wasn’t obedience trained. In my experience, huskies are high energy and hard to train if not done young. However, it’s definitely not impossible to get your new pup to a calmer state. First, be assertive and firm when dealing with this behavior. I would highly recommend professional training classes, either one-on-one or in a group. Huskies are generally not an aggressive breed so his behavior is most likely related to frustration and anxiety. Exercise and discipline are important along with a lot of time and patience. I hope this helps.

Markie on this website has seven huskies and her family raises them so she'd probably have some helpful advice.
I haven't seen her post in a while though?

Just going off of what you're saying, he doesn't sound aggressive but rather just over stimulated and a rough player.

Have you considered taking part in an obedience class? They can be a lot of fun and incredibly insightful.

How often do you exercise him each day? Not walks or playing in the house, but letting him run? Sounds to me like a lot of pent up energy. We had a husky when I was a teenager, he would be out running full tilt for at least an hour a day + training time + backyard play time. Huskies need a LOT of exercise.
