    I wrote this after becoming a Husky owner.  The best advice I can offer is take up crate training, exercise your husky LOTS, and clean your common areas up well - close bedroom and bathroom doors at all times when you are not around!

    It's normal for a siberian husky pup to get into everything until they're house broken. i'd catch him/her in the act & scold. u may even want 2 use a rolled up newspaper & swat him/her. they soon get the hint 2 stop. when u c something of yers taken, go right then & retrieve it, & give the pup a gentle swat on the hiny. b persistent

    Huskies have been bred to be highly intelligent independant thinkers. This is necessary when pulling dog sleds. In the home, they can learn new things quickly, but that doesn't mean they will always listen. The best way to train your dog is to use a crate. Put her in it everytime you are not home. This way she can't damage your possessions, and you are keeping her from eating something that could hurt her. When you are home training training training is key. Work with her as much as possible, this will not only create a bond, but will also keep her mentally challenged. I once heard that tired dog is a good dog, and this is so true.
    That being said, the best way to get her to stop chewing is to offer lots of safe dog toys. She may be teething. Also, teach the "leave it" command. It's fairly simple just make sure the treat you are using is more enticing then the object she is suppose to leave alone.

    When not stimulated, huskies can be quite destructive. The breed must be stimulated and worked. 

    When you have to leave the dog alone, kennel her in a crate so that she can't destroy the house.

    Try exercising her more. Give her a job to do. Work on training, especially basic obedience. Train her to do tricks. Work on agility and other activities on weekends and regularly in your spare time.
