To be honest she is still intact because I just simply haven't been able to get around to it, my parents were supposed to get it done but never did and now living on my own it's been consistently pushed back due to more pressing matters.
And whenever she would run off, she would come back and get spanked and I'd crate her for a couple of hours.
Fixing her isn't going to take the husky out of her. She will do the same thing fixed or not so I wouldn't waste your time and money doing it :-):-)

Ok so a few things...I'm glad to hear that you are aware that she is feeling insecure, lets start from there! If you take the time to work with her doing basic training first such as sit stay, come, recall etc. it will help you bond with her and she will learn to trust you more...I always used a high value reward when training recall! Next, I'll try to put this as gently as possible...you should never hit your dog and never crate your dog as punishment, think about it...if you were out having fun and your mom called you and you didn't come right away, then when you finally did she spanked you in anger then locked you up, how would you feel? It would probably make you feel even more insecure! I know I sure wouldn't want to go home, your actually teaching her the opposite of what you want her to do, this is where the recall training is extremely important, you need to have patience and understanding for her as she is in a totally different environment than she was used to, she needs time to acclimate, also I know you said you couldn't spay her right now, but is there anyway your parents could help you out with that sometime soon, that should help with her temperament towards the other dogs!!

I agree :-):-):-) Hitting and then putting in crate just because huskies are stubborn doesn't mean abuse them and using a crate for punishment is never good since that is suppose to be a good thing. I don't think you want a one year old husky running around your house because she doesn't like the crate anymore. Second you have to stop hitting her hour not getting anywhere with it. They don't like it. She will start staying away because it's not good for her. Independent thinkers like huskies think about themselves is their isn't something good coming out of the relationship you have with them then they don't care. :-):-):-) Take a step back and look at your doing is it making things worse or better???

Can I call that an understatement?, referring to the "especially dogs" part.

Hey, one other thing which you mentioned, you suggested getting the dog to feel secure in it's territory so competition between other bitches is minimized. Maybe you could elaborate on how you accomplish this. I know what I have done with my bitch but it's not the same situation as yours or the OPs because the other females that frequent my bitches turf are just regular visitors.

Thanks

I have one dominant female it's Maliki. She set the pace. I let them find dominance. So what I do is introduce one at a time let them figure it out then I bring in one more figure it out if the three of them. Then go from there Maliki is always on top. I never had not be the more dominant one. :-):-)

Maliki has never lost a dominance battle she always wins but they don't try after about a week or two days some are more submissive then others

Arrow Spay; tether or umbilical; crate in the car; Pre-condition the BOX muzzle.

I'd say fighting with the other resident Fs brings "spay" right to the front of the line; every time they so much as lift a lip at one another or give a hard stare, they rehearse the prelude to another fight.

1st thing i'd suggest, since she's not a future dam, is spay.

2nd is no more off-leash time around the other dogs -
if they are out, I'd have her on a waist-leash connected to U, or tethered short in the same room with U, in line of sight - so that the other dogs cannot harass her without U seeing it immediately, & stopping it instantly.

here's info on tethers:
Tethered to Success | Kerry Blue Terrier Foundation

Any big-box hardware / home-improvement store can custom-make a bike-cable tether.
15-inches of clear line between the clamped swivels at each end is plenty; lay down a folded towel, a bathmat, or other low-profile padding to give her boundaries. Give her a long-lasting chewie as busywork, an antler, a cow-hoof, or similar - don't let the other dogs camp-out & stare while she chews; if they hover nearby, baby-gate them out of the room, or put a 3-ft tall, 3-panel ex-pen around Ur dog, so her treasure can't be taken.


If U leave the room, for any reason whatever, for the briefest moment - she goes along on a waist-leash. [That includes accompanying U on bathroom trips, so that U can use the toilet.]
She is never ever left unsupervised with another dog or dogs - nor is she ever out of sight, when other dogs are in the same area - outside within a fence, inside the house --- in the car, she's in a shipping-crate to keep her entirely separate from any other dog: fully enclosed.
If U get out of the car, she leaves with U - to prevent "fence-fighting" thru the crate with the other dogs.

info on dog-fights:
https://www.dogstardaily.com/training/fightbite-ratio


As a point of info, if 1 dog is muzzled, ALL dogs are muzzled - 'cuz a muzzled dog is defenseless. // The only safe muzzles are box a-k-a basket muzzles - not tubes; no elastic, no tapered mesh.
U also pre-condition a muzzle, if U want the dog to wear it without stress -

Think about what U just taught her - "If i go back, i'll be punished. I'll stay away!"
That may not be what U meant to teach - but it's what U taught, nonetheless.

Dogs are always, always rewarded for returning - if U drag them in hand-over-hand with a deep-sea fishing reel, they STILL get rewarded.

3rd suggestion:
find a humane, reward-based manners class, & get into it - after she's spayed, which should - IMO - be A.S.A.P.

Arrow It's not about "running away".

Spaying her isn't to "keep her from running away" - it does 3 things:
- reduces F-to-F aggression among the household dogs.
- reduces F-to-F aggro toward or from non-household dogs.
- reduces her own odds of developing breast-tumors AKA mammary cancer.

Bitches in heat raise tensions with other dogs - M & F, intact or desexed. Intact Fs who are between estrous periods, don't raise tensions to the same fever-pitch, but they themselves are more 'inflammable' than they would be if neutered, & they are not a calming influence on other dogs.

Breast-cancer is 4X as common in F dogs as in F humans; 68% of F dogs who are diagnosed with breast cancer, are put down during the same vet-appt - 'cuz by the time they develop symptoms, it's already metastasized to her lungs, & there's nothing to be done.
Spaying a F pup by 6-MO or B4 her 1st estrus, reduces her risk of breast-cancer by 99.999% - to near-nil.

There are SO many studies that contradict your assertions quoted above, all very easy to find.
