    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, Me and my sister just re-homed this 8 month old husky mix. He's been really great up until a few days ago where he would start mouthing very hard and tugging on clothes really hard. We tried turning around to ignore him to send a message that it is not okay behavior but he starts tugging...

    Stubbie is a wonderful dog, to me anyways, though he has many things I'd like to work on and inturn make him an even better dog. I know from looking around here that I am most definitely not alone when I say that Stubbie is reactive on leash, or even with just barriers when it comes to other...
