Dear fellow dog lovers. a week ago I got a 3 and a half month old Siberian Husky, me and my wife went to a pet store to check out puppies to adopt , All of the puppies were so excited to see us except this one dog chilling alone in his cage without any interaction he didn't even want to come out of his cage, no treats no nothing was working to get him out to interact with us , once i saw it like that I decided to adopt that puppy as I felt bad because it seemed it either was really mistreated or possibly spent all his life in a cage so hes most likely anti social. I couldn't find out clearly what was his background. Anyways We chose to give it home, today marks exact week since we introduced him to our house, the behavior of Lucky has gotten better but he cant seem to be progressing when it comes to trusting me and my wife to pet him or feed him which makes it very hard for us to house train him or even play with him as he wont accept any direct interaction , when I come down on his level to pet him he moves away hes not aggressive or anything he doesn't even bark or show any signs of aggression , he just simply tenses up if you touch him and tries to move away if hes in a position he can , I bought him all kinds of treats at the beginning and none of them worked for him so I read up on more of similar cases some said to try hand feed it people food, which actually helped he started to make progress with hand feeding him but it still feels like its not his favorite way to eat, so I got him canned food from Pedigree which works every time, I thought once he started to accept hand feeding that we are progressing in our bonding but he still wont let me touch him , he doesn't like to be alone he follows us everywhere but he wont let us touch him for some reason when my wife is in the room he feels more comfortable as he moves around in the room and gets a little playful. Unfortunately as soon as I walk in the room he goes to his bed and chills. When I get closer even if just to hand feed him I can see him tensing and hiding his tale up even when he accepts the food he wont let us touch him, he doesnt get defensive but he does move away and tenses up. The first day we took him for a walk , he was very shy and scared and his tale curled upp hidden , now he made progress regarding the outside world now he walks around like he owns the neighborhood but he wont accept treats outside the house so when he does go potty outside Im not even able to praise him and give him a treat for him to understand that it was a good behavior it seems most behavioral problems are getting better but there are few that I dont feel like are progressing. My question is if there is anyone out there that has dealt with a similar dog behaviour? let me know your story and what worked for you ,tricks to help him overcome his fears. How do you train a puppy that wont let you touch him? How do you train a puppy that wont accept a high impact treat outdoors? We are now currently applying the (ignore your puppy method) we only hand feed him and take him out to potty as we read up on few stories but this method so far doesn't seem to be progressing anywhere. Your help is much appreciated. and sorry didn't know to express myself in a shorter way.
