Tip#2 Get Your Husky Familiar with The Collar & Leash

Huskies are not a breed that can be trained inside a house or in the backyard. Before starting leash training a husky first tie the leash to the collar or harness and take them to a nearby park during off-peak hours.

Tip#4 Reward Good Behaviour with Delicious Treats

It is important to reward dogs when they behave well since they are more likely to pay attention when they see treats or something delicious food to eat. Giving dogs rewards every time they ask will not at all help in teaching them and will only encourage disobedience.

Only reward your husky when they obey or show some positive behavior.

Tip#5 Keep the Walks Short in the Beginning

For a puppy, short training sessions are always more effective than long and extensive ones. A puppy can learn more without getting bored or overwhelmed.

It is conceivable that a Husky puppy will not learn anything from lengthy training sessions and may eventually grow to despise them. Short walks enable puppies to gradually increase their energy and better understand the task they are learning.
