Here are some steps you can take to stop your husky from biting or nipping:

1. Establish yourself as the pack leader: Huskies, like all dogs, need clear boundaries and rules to follow. By establishing yourself as the pack leader, you can teach your husky what is and isn’t acceptable behavior.
2. Use positive reinforcement: Reward your husky for good behavior, such as not biting or nipping, with treats, praise, or affection.
3. Provide plenty of exercise: Huskies are a high-energy breed and need plenty of exercise to stay mentally and physically healthy. This can help reduce their urge to bite or nip.
4. Use a firm “no” command: When your husky bites or nips, say “no” in a firm voice and remove your hand or clothing from its mouth.
5. Seek professional help: If your husky’s biting or nipping behavior is severe or persistent, consider seeking the help of a professional dog trainer or behaviorist.
6. Provide mental stimulation: Provide your husky with plenty of interactive toys to keep them mentally stimulated, this can help reduce frustration and biting.
7. Seek medical attention: If your husky’s biting or nipping behavior is new or out of the ordinary, it’s important to rule out any underlying medical issues that may be causing the behavior.

It’s important to remember that all dogs have their own personalities, so it’s important to be patient and persistent when trying to correct unwanted behavior.
