Oh this is so exciting, I havent found anyone els into this. Everyone I know is just like whatever about it.
The only thing I've considered "training" really at only 3 months is getting
Him to walk on a harness and get used to it. I was told on a husky
Forum he should start learning to pull at 1 or a little older. I am planning
To teach him to go off lead pressure.

They let you show mixed breeds?...What an insult. Im NOT saying that about your boy cause he's gorg. But I have been showing dogs since ever and only think good quality purebreds should be shown then if champions bred. Because how can you judge mix breeds in open class? Their are no standards for them, its just a padgent.

If I were you I would start him on pulling sticks on his side once he is use to the harness. Because I know husky/wolf hybrids can be well sensitive lol. He doesnt have to pull weight... Just better to start them early. Then you wont run into probs later like I did with my rottie. Jmo

He is pretty used to the harness by now, I did have him pull a very light
Weight baby stroller one day, he pulled it with ease but didn't like the noise behind him one bit, I think I'm going to try doing it again maybe. LOL, sound
Like you got him down to a T', he is really sensitive and acts like he is dying
When I barely even pat him on the butt for getting in trouble~

Lol I've had three wolf hybrids, well one only had like 2% dog... So I know the breed well. But when I was training duke I just turned the tables and thought of him as training a small horse, you know? Can't just stick a whole cart on a horse and think they will be ok with it. Trainers always start small and work up so I just used that with my training. Im so glad tho that my rott is over a year now. So I can start getting him fit cause they say you can't excersize rotties till they are older like 2 because their bodied mature sooooo slooooow.

Oh gosh this just popped in my head, are you working on Loki's prey drive? He's going to have a big one and it would not be fun him seeing a cat pop out and boom its like a run away clydsdale team. I can just picture it now with his lil red wagon.

Lol I could just see it! His huge tounge hanging out huge flapping feet running as hard as they can. And a HUGE grin on his face. Oh and we can forget those ears. :) I really do love those kinds of breeds but sadly Im not going to have anymore. For me they were to much heart break. They either ran away, so the last to we had to get rid of because we lived to close to a highway and they constantly got out, then they kept killing all our small pets. My first wolf mix was the one that got stolen.... I always look at the ads and dream but I know I wont get one.
But im soooooooo darn happy with my rottie, he has healed my heart so much. I love him to death! We even get seperation anxioty. I can't leave him for more then a weekend. Even if im out shopping for a couple hours I want to race back home to see him. Once I get my truck with a canopy he is going everywhere with me ^_^ He will be my co poilet

Thats what I have well his line is german and hungary imports.

You know that's what rotties were bred to do is pull the butchers cart into town, and they would have a pouch around their neck for the gold. And if they were getting robbed the butcher would just let the dog go. Then they started using them to herd/gaurd cattle...

Im like an open book that wont shut up when it comes to dogs O_O
