    Oh lordy - allow me to pick myself up off the ground.

    Huskies are NOT a guard breed - they will - like any other dog - bark at strangers on their property

    I wouldn't suggest anyone who isn't highly experienced with dogs teach any breed of dog to guard and certainly not huskies

    Welcome

    As Occy said , she will no doubt bark at strangers as she settles in and becomes accostomed to her home and her new family and that is often enough to deter would be intruders..

    And Occy is right about training aggressivness.
    Certainly not for someone with little experience

    so with training would i be able to get her to a stage where she is agressive to strangers not limb shredding agressive but barking growling going burko agressive and not letting a stranger near her or her side of the fence, but still be ok with us or am i asking to much from the wrong breed

    No - with time you will turn what is probably a lovely dog into a dangerous animal who will need to be put to sleep soon as she sinks her teeth into some poor unsuspecting bastard. I have asked a few husky friends to look at this thread - will see what they think. I daresay they will agree.

    this is the reason i came to a forum i want advice experiance and knowledge if its the wrong thing to do i wont do it she is such a beautifull dog, id just like it if she could be protective if she cant than id love her to be the affecionate girl she is, she is well trained 3yrs old, picked her up today and at first she would sort of sit on command now i have her sitting great she will walk next to me with the lead not tenisoned, she will drop i have got her staying for about 3minutes and sitting till she is told ok for her dinner

    Hello and Husky Guy,
    I agree with Occy and Choppa, IMO as she settles in to her home, She will let you know if someone is where they shouldn't be But as for training her to do so, I wouldn't recommend it.

    this is as much as i really want just want her to do her best to warn someone off at the end of the day if someone is desperate enough to get in they will just drug the dog no matter how big it is
