Hello all, I recently bought (4 days ago) an 8 week old Husky puppy. I have had dogs in my house growing up but I never had to personally train them. I researched Huskies a bit before I bought one. I read that they need tons of exercise so I have been jogging and walking with her almost daily. I have also been playing with her in the backyard. My roomate also has a large boxor that is a little too hyper for her at the moment. He is very playful but my husky gets afraid of his size. So, whenever I need to leave the house I take her to a friend's to play with his dogs. The first two nights she slept in a crate, but she howled all night. She started biting at the cage and eventually went bathroom in her crate. Though, I think she was a little sick because she was still nursing when I took her to my house. She has diarrhea and was throwing up but the last two days have been fine. I bought the crate pretty large because she will grow large - though should I pick up a small one so she doesn't have an abundance of space? The last two nights she has been sleeping on a blanket on the floor next to me and she is totally fine. I take her outside every 2 hours and she goes right to the bathroom. My questions are: 1. I thought about using a clicker to train her. When is a good age to start that? 2. How will she get used to the crate? She does have a habit of falling asleep under tables, beds and desks so I know she likes her "den". 3. How much should I feed her? How regularly? Thanks so much. If you have any helpful hints for a first time dog trainer, please let me know!
