Hi! We did clicker training with Alaska, what worked for us, (and we are still working on it) I went to home depot, and bought some rope (100ft) and tied large knots in it, and put a hook on the end. We hook her up to this and go to a large baseball field near our house,  we let her run, and we work on comming when called etc. you still have control, so they don't run into the street (that is what the knots in the rope are for) she has made excellent progress, but as you may know most sibes can never be off leash dogs. (prey drive, car smarts etc) With click training you have to time the click just at the right time, and make sure to TREAT! (hot dog weenies or cheese work wonders with Alaska) Then the dog associates the click with the treat, and they get the click when they do something good. So there for they put 2 and 2 together, and realize they do something good they get a treat! You can slowly get them off of the treats, so you don't have to carry a clicker with you the rest of your life, and they will work for praise too. Make sure that you PRAISE them also. That is very important. Clicker training did work for us to a certain extent. I can't say that it will work for everyone. Make sure that you treat and praise, and you will get good results hopefully!

My two go into their crates, they love them. But when it gets really really hot, I bring them into the bedroom so they can sleep in the AC. Alaska always sleeps next to my side of the bed on the floor, and Aspen on his back at the bottom of the bed on the floor (right where the AC blows) LOL

I drive an old beat up car! LOL it is a 91 buick skylark. When you see me comming down the road, I have a car full of dog! With my two Siberians in the back, there is plenty of fur flying! My soon to be hubby drives a 98 Ford Ranger Ex Cab. Both of these guys fit back there pretty easy.
