Hello all. I have just recently adopted a 1 year old Lab Husky mix from a family of craigslist. I feel they did not take care of the dog with regards to proper training and adequate attention. I have came here in need of some advice and analysis of his behavior. He whines constantly whenever we go inside the house (not outside), it is hard to get his attention (even with treats and toys), he piddles in the house (obviously not house trained :/ ), you have almost zero control when walking him on a leash, and he will NEVER leave your side (can't close a door leaving him in a room, he always throws his massive head through first). Its sad that he, obviously, was neglected while being raised by a puppy, but it feels quite difficult for a inexperienced individual such as myself to set him straight and maximize the potential his genetics should provide him. He's a super loving knuckle head and I don't want to give up on him Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated! I am thinking about taking him to a proper trainer soon.
