Siberian huskies are intelligent but are not easily convinced to do that which they have no desire. They have a mind of their own and tend to do as they wish. Siberian husky house training can be a painstaking task for any husky owner. It needs commitment and hard work but the results are definitely worth it.
In any case, every dog is unique and different and so the time for house training varies depending on the dog. It can take up to weeks. Though there is no denying that the trainer may have a hand in the quick learning or delay in the success of the house training.
Tips for House Training
When house training a Siberian husky, use positive reinforcement and be positive about the whole training process. For some trainers, crate training seems to be of great assistance during Siberian husky house training. The crate is where the dog sleeps at night. It is a place of comfort. Generally no breed of dogs will ever soil a place they sleep. They will therefore hold it in while they are in a crate to maintain the comfort of the crate as a place of sleeping. Even when using a crate as a house training method, a puppy should not be crated for more than one hour. The older the dog gets the longer he can be crated, as the bladder can hold more urine. You may crate the Siberian husky when you are not available to supervise the training.
During Siberian husky house training you ought to have a strict schedule. Feed the dog at specific times, exercise him at specific times, get him to nap at specific times and most importantly take him outside at specific times. The important thing is to establish a routine. When you have a routine it becomes easy to predict when your Siberian husky dog needs to relieve himself. Eventually the dog will catch on. Whenever he successfully goes outside give him praise, get excited and offer him a treat. During Siberian husky house training, a puppy or dog should be corrected immediately he makes a mistake. When he urinates where he shouldn’t, correct that behavior immediately and not later so as to be clear on which behavior you are correcting. Otherwise the dog will just get confused. Even when correcting bad behavior you should never hit or shout at him, simply take him out and tell him to potty. With time the Siberian husky being quite intelligent will learn that he should only relieve himself outside.
When the dog makes a mistake during house training and relieves himself in the house, take him outside and clean up any mistakes he makes immediately making sure to get rid of the smell completely. The reason for this is that if the smell of urine remains the dog will associate that spot with urinating and will keep urinating at that particular spot each time. Expect mistakes during the period of Siberian husky house training and do not get so disappointed when he makes a mistake. Sometimes the dog may relapse but it is to be expected.
