New husky dog help

Hey Basil, last night my parents bought a 9 month old husky and hes fairly big (and sorta scary too hah). I have no dog experience so I'm seeking some help with how I'm supposed to let him be around the house. I'm going to be home alone with him all of January during 8am -3pm, since I got no uni and its awks just watching him in a cage. We walk him at 7 am, 11:30am (on my bros lunch), and probably around 3:30 today ill take him out again (when my bros home). He already bit my bro and was pulling on my coat for a whole 3 min without letting go which made me question his behavior. I want to let him out of his crate but I'm afraid he'll bite me and not listen ( go upstairs, tear something, jump on couches, etc) Soooo anyone got dog experience here? :v

He's still a puppy, gotta train him. Hopefully you don't keep him in a cage much longer, but make sure he knows biting is bad

discourage bad behavior (like he hurts you everythign he does somethign bad) and reinforce good behavior with petting and stuff
but yeah he sounds like he's still young but once he gets older i'm sure he'll be a bit more smooth around the edges
man i love big doggies :]

..wow
-Make sure you cage him before you leave the house and before you go to bed every night. Make sure he learns the command to go to cage. After a few months you can learn to trust him alone in the house. I'd let him out of the cage right now though. Best thing to do is to get him super tired first, and just let him hang out
-If you dont like youre dog going to the second floor you can train him not to.
-Potty train him to wait by the door when he needs to go.
-Walk twice a day
-Dog parks when hes a little older
-Train him right as a pup
-

Its normal if hes always biting if hes teething. But after that im sure he/she will be fine.

@ApplesAreOkay is right, but also keep in mind, you got him LAST NIGHT. even if he's already been housebroken and such, he's a little puppy in a brand new environment. discourage him when he does bad stuff and be consistent about discouraging him and how you go about it. be good to your new puppy! hes probably very anxious and scared if hes anything like other shelter animals ive had. xo

Huskies are high-energy dogs that need to run around frequently. If you have a fenced in yard or a yard with a runner/leash let him out on that as often as possible.

They are generally very friendly and loyal dogs. They get excited very easily, but won't bite unless threatened. They mostly want to play. They are moderately difficult to train, though. It is recommended to sign up for puppy-training classes. It is a bit past the prime-time to train, but it's never too late to teach an old dog new tricks.

When walking, be in control. Huskies are born and bread to pull. Purchase a harness to help ease the tension on the leash as you walk because I'm sure when you walk he pulls. Try to train him to loose-leash walk (not pull when walking/walk along-side you). Both help a bundle.

Crate training is great, but do not let him sit in it all day, especially if you are home. Let him wander around. If you do not want him on the furniture, teach him to stay off. A common trick is to fill a water bottle with loose change and shake it. It may not work as well with your Husky, though, as it may thing it is a chew toy.

On the topic of chewing, watch out when it starts to teeth. They like to chew quite a bit on various items in the house. Shoes and other objects you do not want to get eaten should be put up.

The most important rule to remember when being a dog owner is to never be afraid of your pet. You are the boss, the alpha, and the leader. If you object to anything it does, make sure it knows. Do not do anything to physically harm it, but a tug on the tail or a flick on the nose goes a long way.

There are lots of websites out there to help new Husky owners as they are very unique dogs. Search around Google a bit and you will find guides for everything from grooming and feeding to training and general care.

Final warning: It will shed. A lot. Huskies have an undercoat that pushes out during the season changes and causes a lot of fur to fly.
