Can Husky Talk?
written by : Nada Saad
In general, talking and barking are actually genetics yet they are not compatible. A dog who talks won’t bark often.Training a Husky is a challenge. They are extremely intelligent, stubborn and independent which can make it difficult when training. So it will take big time to train them, it’s not impossible to get your husky dog to talk but you need patience and time. On the other hand you can find your husky dog talking with no effort from your side, thanks to their intelligence level.
Huskies are usually vocal, but they’re not barkers. They howl more frequently than they bark and this helps in getting a husky dog to talk. They will never talk like humans, they won’t spell letters, they will just howl in the rhythm of words.For ex: I love you, you will hear It “I wooow yu”.
It’s a bit close to how babies learn to talk at first.All you need to do is to notice what makes them howl. Some huskies howl when you expose them to weird sounds that may compel them to howl like music, videos of howling dogs, treat, teasing them with a toy and some will howl just because you howl. And as a husky is an independent and stubborn dog so some of them won’t howl unless they want to and this is why it’s important to keep your patience.
Find a way to make them produce the sound (like wooing at them), then reward them, as they understand what you’re looking for, add the command to it. Once they woo back every time, you should say speak or say hi or sing then woo at them.
And you can also repeat an easy word many times till they try to imitate you and say it back. Once they try to make a voice (howling) give them a treat.
