I adopted a 2 year old husky and he bites.  I believe he is just playing but the bites are hard enough to cause pain & bruising. He was a stray so I dont know his previous history.  Does anyone know if I will be able to teach him to stop?  A "no" or a flick on the nose does not have an effect on him.

Well a "no" or a flick on the nose won't do much to a Husky. They are strong willed animals. However they also have a strong desire to please their master and this needs to be taken advantage of. I'd say the best way to deal with this breed is to let them know you're displeased. First build a relationship with it so it wants to please you, then if it bites you just let out a startling yell of pain and say "bad dog!!!!" Do this(or whatever training method you go with) without exception,every time he bites. One thing that I've noticed about my huskies is they seem like they're getting nowhere in their training then, boom, and overnight they decide to obey. Good luck!!! Tanisha

Husky'sare very well mannered dogs.  In packs they display a totally differant temperement.  Many huskys like to play with their mouths open it's just their way.  But if the dog is acting in a undesirable way stand up firmly say no ( don't yell, yelling is a sign of open agression.)Cross your arms and turn around taking four to five steps away.  This will show your displeasure as well as your dominance.  It may not sink in right away but after a couple times your husky should walk up to you looking for you attention and forgiveness.
