Barking and long resting, nibbling are just some of the stages of growing your husky, of course, if your dog is at this stage ... a lot of walking and get acquainted with people and other dogs can help with problems with the protection you ... My Husky is also acting guarding every time the other dog approaches me but I never provided a chance to him to be the least behave aggressively toward people, this behavior even when he was a puppy was punished.
