Hyperactive Husky


blog post photo

Name: Spike
Breed: Siberian Husky
Age: 11 months old

ABOUT THE DOG:
Spike is the Rassibi family’s first dog. He came from a breeder, but at around 7 months, his sweet demeanor shifted to a relentless hyperactive personality that jumps and nips incessantly. Nowadays, Spike spends nearly all of his time in the family’s backyard and can only be viewed through the comfort of the sliding glass door.

ABOUT THE OWNER:
Joshua Rassibi is a very precocious 9-year-old who loves all animals. It was his tenacity to be reunited with his dog that got Cesar Millan to visit this 4th grader. Josh lives with his parents, Salamand and Marjan, and his 5-year-old sister Sara.

BEHIND THE SCENES:
A New York Times reporter was visiting the set that day to observe Cesar in action as he worked with the Rassibi family and Spike. Read Article >>

    I so appreciate Ceasar’s involvement of all the family members and how he teaches youngsters how to interact with dogs appropriately.

    This was a terrific episode, and one that I think every Husky owner can identify with. All dogs have that wolf-y aspect to them, of course, but Huskies I think are very close to wolves — not just in appearance but in their temperament; even the best-trained seem only half-tame, which can be both wonderful and frustrating.

    Ceasar’s involvement with the family was invaluable. As for me – I totally love huskies. Still, they are closer to their feral natures than other dogs – which makes them a bit of a challenge for the owner. Unless the owner is really strong…

    I agree with Jack PDB Huskys and malamutes are definitely the closest dog breeds to wolfs – outside of hybrids of course!

    I have a crazy Beagle. Every time a person walks by my apartment, he starts to growl. If it’s a person with a dog, he goes nuts with the barking. I still love him!

    I enjoyed this episode, But as a dog lover whilst watching It crossed my mind that dogs like humans, should surely be treated differently for different breeds.

    This breeds of dogs are highly intelligent, which allows them to excel in obedience trials but because of their intelligence, they can easily become bored and may stop listening to commands, so playing with toys or throwing the ball at least once a day is essential.

    My 7-month old dachshund has a similar case. He was sweet and cuddly when I got him from a breeder. He was 3 months old then. But now he is so hyper and loves to jump around. When other people come to our house he barks a lot. He’s a rather small dog but his bark is loud. Right now I’m looking for a trainer to help me. New Year Quotes

    The father was ignorant for getting his 9 year old son a husky and having the kid be responsible for him

    This husky has a good shade. I have a male 6 years old husky and he was very hard to train.

    Huskies are a wonderful breed, however, no matter the breed they can all have quirks at times. If anyone can help them Cesar can; he has wonderful skills and a true dedication.

    Attention all you Husky people – there’s a person in Massachusetts (Wigglebums is her web site) who is the president of a Husky club and also an awesome clicker trainer and behavior expert. If you have a Husky and are located near her, give her a try. I hate to send business away, LOL, but I’m the local herding dog aficionado, so maybe it’s an even swap;-))
