forum advice:

post pictures and your responses and advice will increase about 100x.

spend a lot of time with the puppy, play time mostly.

take him outside to do bizness for sure, but also just to sniff around, pee on stuff etc. dogs love the outdoors - the inside is not normal for them (says captain obvious)

you also need to start slowly teaching the dog to be away from humans (and i mean slowly) if thats part of the plan.

crate training works wonders (did for me at least) - search the forums for some good threads.

start with short time in the crate (5-10 minutes) and slowly build up to hours (SLOWLY) so that when you are at work for 8 hours when the dog is older, they know how to handle it.

good luck - husky/lab should be fun!
