My boyfriend and I have an 8 month old male siberian husky. He only listens to my boyfriend and will bite or nip at me all the time. Is there anything I can do?

Huskies as you know are pack dogs. They will only respect or obey those people that they view as higher in there pack. You need to take more time in the training feeding and exercise of the dog to change its view of you.

Also, take into consideration where the siberian husky sleeps. Never let it sleep in bed with you or at the same height. It belongs on the floor and you on a raised bed, as alphas sleep on higher ground. Pay attention to how your boyfriend treats you around the dog. It may be viewing your boyfriend as the alpha, and you as second in line, and may think it can overcome you to get closer to the alpha. Make sure you control it's food and exercise also.
