I was looking for a book with some special hints for training huskies (as they can be difficult dogs to train) and was disappointed.

This book is short and easy to read with helpful tips on training and obedience.

Training a Siberian Husky is quite a challenge considering the personality of a Siberian. They are playful, independent, and intelligent. You have to take these traits into consideration and go from there. Treats are about the only motivator I have found to get one moving and I don't mean the ones from the grocery store. Very smart, a Siberian will work if she wants to work or provided there is a benefit. If you own one or are thinking of getting one, please read this book. Siberian Huskies for Dummies is also a good choice as well. This book is very short with concise instructions. I think even a mature teenager could manage to train with this book.

This book would be great for anyone considering a Siberian Husky, or a new dog owner as it contains basic dog care tips and an introduction to training techniques. I was looking for a book with some special hints for training huskies (as they can be difficult dogs to train) and was disappointed. Although the title is 'How to Train You Siberian Husky' a large amount of space in the book is dedicated to caring for your dog - not training.

I adopted a 4 month old Husky who was completely out of control. I was desperate to find help. This book contained the answers that I needed to control this pup. Thank you!

Train your Siberian? Most Sibe owners will laugh out loud at this. Sure, they will do simple tricks for treats, but you know they are just putting you on. Husky owners would welcome a book that addressed the unique character of the husky and described methods of using the husky mentality to teach and train. This book is very much in the genre of those dog books which are 75% generic and 25% breed specific. Much of the text is not husky specific, though that in no way makes it not useful in general. The rub in the case of the husky is that as husky owners we want to address those unique husky traits that defy our best efforts at training.

This book may be found lacking for experienced husky owners, while those new to the breed will surely find this useful. You may also find Breed All About It Season 4 - Episode 22: Siberian Husky of interest!
