Talking husky pup is just like an obstinate toddler when his owner puts him to bed

Jan 13, 2014 By Rob Toledo

Parents of little ones, you know as bed time approaches your kids will start crafting up the most incredibly creative plans to convince you that they can stay up just a bit longer. Then when that inevitably fails, they sometimes just flop on the floor and start saying “Noooo!”

Well, it’s the same with this awesome little husky…

    LOL! The pup is a scream. Hapless owner picked the wrong breed: a hyper intelligent, willful Husky. Fella needs a mini Poodle he can scoop into his man bag when the dog won’t listen!!!! Seriously, he needs to get a trainer’s help before the dog signs the house over to himself and starts driving the car LOL

      I’m pretty sure it’s possible that he might have a very well trained dog, and they are a good match, sometimes dogs will act like kids or just do funny things. even if the person has trained the dog well. lighten up.

      What makes you think he’s in there all day? Human may have been saying that so Dog would respond. Or, they could be located in Alaska, where it’s sunny at night during certain times of the year. So before you liberally assume “that’s mean”, do some research. Ask some questions.

    2. Sim says:

      The caption clearly states the owner is trying to put the dog to bed.
      He’s even wearing a winter coat like he’s going out, maybe the dog chews things.
      What in the world makes you think the dog is being kept in a kennel all day?

      Most dogs eventually love their crate, if using the metal fold downs. Its similar to their “cave” in the wild, a place they love and feel safe in. This dog might not want to go in because he knows dad is “leaving”, or its in a seperate room. But its not mean….mean is…leaving your dog loose and you come home and he’s destroyed half the living room and you rant and rant and rant, then give him away because you “can’t control him”. That’s mean

  2. PSA From A Professional Animal Trainer says:

    Very cute! I would be careful with all of the pushing and pulling, though. When we ignore our animals’ appropriate ways of telling us “no,” they may be pushed into feeling that we need it spelled out more clearly. This can lead to growling, lunging, and even full on bites. A better strategy for crate training is to utilize positive reinforcement to make the experience easy and enjoyable for everyone. Here’s a good article from the Association of Professional Dog Trainers on how to do so:


    Thanks for sharing your cute pup with us!

    kennel training would fix that. treats, even just their kibble hand fed, but only when he’s in, given at the back and top of the kennel, through the top, mine jump and run when i say “kennel” jockeying for position and yes, they gladly go. we only kennel at night and rarely if we have company that isn’t comfortable with dogs. every few nights, there is treats in the kennels to reinforce. works like a charm!

  4. Chris says:

    This sucks. Some people shouldn’t have dogs. If you’re in a lifestyle where you need a kennel, you should get a different breed, or not get a dog at all. Makes me sad. :(

      It would be better to understand the use of kennels, and why they are “dog approved”. I have had an open kennel in my living room for the last 20+ years. I only took it down after about 4 years, believing my dogs no longer needed it. What a mess i made, they searched and searched, whined, cried, till i finally brought it back out of storage and it sits there still to this day. Most of all, understand a crate, is a clone for a dogs “den”, where it teaches them not to go to the bathroom, and where to go if they feel insecure. Too many people dont’ “get” the crate thing, and some how allow borders to become enmeshed and crossed. They are a good thing, unless used to abuse. As I said, my dogs love them and often sleep and even take stolen food to. Why is it we don’t find cribs disturbing? Same thing, except for a child….?

    2. C says:

      you figured it all out man. good job on being so smart. and knowing all the details of this person’s and that dog’s life. you’re so right though.

  5. Anonymous says:

    For those who believe putting a dog in a kennel is wrong..I disagree..It is wrong if they are in there too often for too long…but .saying people who put their dog in a kennel shouldn’t have a dog is like saying people who put a baby in a crib shouldn’t have children.

  6. Jennifer says:

    It amazes me how up in arms people get.

    1. Who has someone video themselves putting their dog in a kennel?
    2. Who actually sees this kennel?
    3. How does anyone know the time of day? They made this thing called electricity that allows you to light up your home.
    4. People with dogs do have lives. They do have to go to work… school… Church… buy groceries. Putting a dog in a kennel should not mean you are unfit to have one. It should mean you are caring for your dog and keeping it safe by not leaving it outside in the elements, in your house where it is free to roam and get into plants, food, and other things that could be harmful to your pets, or in your car where it is hot/cold

    Most people would look at this video and realize it was posted for entertainment purposes. It was staged… like taping your kid when they do something funny and then making them do it over again for the camera (while you giggle) so you can show everyone later. Chill out people… no animals were harmed in the making of this video.

  7. Jenny says:

    Please stop anthropomorphizing dogs. Sure, a human wouldn’t like to be in a kennel, but dogs are den animals. Like their wild cousins the wolves, the dens they create for themselves are small, barely big enough to stand up and turn around.

    My dog loves her kennel. She goes in there to feel safe, she goes in there when she knows she’s done something wrong. She recently grew out of her old kennel, and I bought her a bigger one with lots of room. She isn’t as happy with it as she was when she was crammed into a little one.

    She’s a dog.

  8. Sue says:

    My dog loves her kennel too. It’s her little haven. She goes in there for naps sometimes, when she’s scared about something, if she knows she’s been bad. Sounds exactly like Jenny’s dog. I would LOVE to take the kennel down because it is huge and pretty much an eyesore, but I would never do that to my dog. You guys who think kennels are evil must not be dog owners yourselves.

  9. Diane Terry says:

    I’m very surprised that there are negative comments here since it’s truly hysterical. You can tell that this is a loving dog owner who is only getting his dog into his kennel, where it says that he loves his kennel. Many dogs like the safe feeling of a crate or kennel. Lighten up, and stop being so judgmental.

  10. SteppingWolf says:

    Dogs love and feel safe in a den. My dog was a rescue and she loves her kennel. She goes in there when we have a lot of company and pulls the door shut behind herself. She goes in there when she wants to have alone time. It’s her fav spot for naps. It’s been a great place for her.

  11. Sandy says:

    HA! My dog, a yorkie mix, sometimes is too tired to come to bed upstairs, and when I call him he’ll lays his head upside down off the couch like a fainting lady as if to say, “I couldn’t possibly, mother! You must carry me!” And so I scoop him up in a little ball and carry him to bed.

    A second note, my dog has a crate and he LOVES it as well. I read 3 books about crates and dogs and the benefits before I bought him one because I never used one for my previous dogs. It really is a miracle how much it helped with training him, as well as just a cozy place he can call his own. He has his own snuggie in there that he sleeps on, and he brings his favorite toys in there to play with. Whenever I give him a treat he takes it to his crate to eat, because it’s a place he feels safe where no imaginary creature will snatch his treat from him. LOL. He also goes in there voluntarily when I’m gathering my purse to run an errand. I tried leaving him loose at home a few times and every time I came home he showed signs of being stressed and left little stress poops in the house. The psychology of dogs and dens is real. The instinct is wired in their DNA.

  12. Bre says:

    this video is fun to watch, and i love the dogs reaction to dad, no different than a childs “…awwww, dad, i don’t want to go to my bed, i like it here…lol”. By the way, for those making such a snit about crates, i can understand your lack of knowledge, but jesh, there is plenty of free knowledge out on the web. Read about it and how its the best thing since sliced bread. Just as important, i have a question for those who think crates are mean, do you feel the same way about a baby’s crib???? Seems to me we know well enough to keep our children safe when we (and they) are sleeping, or out of the room, or gone somewhere….and put them in a crib and I never hear people saying….that’s mean!

  13. Hmm says:

    Seems to me they are just having a little fun like parents might with their children. If he was really caging him at the moment, the dog would have been in the crate. There is nothing wrong with a crate.

  14. Georgie says:

    My mom has a crate for her dog and her dog loves it. She also just leaves her crate open in the living room and whenever you want to find her dog just look in there because that is where he always goes. He also takes his stuff ( food and toys) in there with him. He would be lost without his crate to go into.
