One night, Chris was out of town, and I decided that I wanted Kita to sleep in our room that night. He stopped his destructive behavior and never went back to his old room. After awhile, Kita's behavior changed significantly. We realized that he had learned all of the tricks that we had taught him; he had just pretended otherwise. He started listening to us and wanting to play. We also realized that he loved kids and other dogs, so walks became quite an adventure for him. Anyone that meets Kita now will tell you that he is the friendliest dog they have met. He loves to give kisses and is the dog at his daycamp that insists on making sure that every other dog is involved in the fun by befriending any dogs that are otherwise shy. Huskies can be a tough breed to raise, but I would not trade Kita for the world and every frustration that he caused as a puppy was completely worth dealing with now that we know what a wonderful pet he has turned out to be.
Because Kita is so friendly, I know that he would want every other dog to have a family that loves them, so I created a blog page for him promoting dog adoption. Check it out and let me know if you have suggestions on ways to make it better.
