Overview
Developed during the 1970's in Alaska by Linda Spurlin, the Alaskan Klee Kai is a smaller version of the Alaskan Husky. Bred as companions, this breed is relatively new, having been recognized by the UKC in 1997. They come in 3 sizes: Toy, Miniature, and Standard.
Character
The Alaskan Klee Kai's most distinctive characteristic is the full facial mask. This breed is extremely loyal, affectionate with family, and active.
Temperament
Alaskan Klee Kai's are highly intelligent, highly devoted, and agile. They thrive on attention and companionship. The Alaskan Klee Kai is reserved around strangers and will alert by barking. They are also "talkers", emitting vocal sounds when they want attention. They do well with children and other pets they have been raised with.
Care
The Alaskan Klee Kai requires frequent brushing. Dry shampoo or bathe when necessary. This breed has no known health issues.
Coat
A double coat breed, the Alaskan Klee Kai has a well-furred appearance. Heavier fur is at the ruff of the neck and on the tail. They are average shedders and shed heavily twice a year.
Training
Early intense socialization is a must. This breed also does well in obedience. They require firmness, fairness, and consistency.
Activity
The Alaskan Klee Kai does best with a securely fenced yard. They are excellent escape artists, so fencing must be set into the ground to prevent digging and tall enough to prevent jumping. They benefit from daily exercise and family interaction.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Alaskan Klee Kai puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

1 Comment

Anonymous

The Alaskan Klee Kai is a reputable breed of dog. They are not a mixed breed such as the Pomski (Siberian Husky/Pomeranian cross). The breed was developed in Wasilla, Alaska, from the early 1970s to 1988 by Linda S. Spurlin and her family.The breed was developed with Siberian and Alaskan Huskies, using Schipperke and American Eskimo Dog to bring down the size without dwarfism. She bred these dogs in private until she released them to the general public in 1988.

The Alaskan Klee-Kai is an indoor dog, but they love to play outside. They need an average of an hour and a half of running exercise a day.

The best thing to do is to have face-to-face time with the breed itself. The Klee Kais breed sheds a fair amount, they are seasonal shedders, but also shed on a daily basis. But it would depend on the quality of food you are feeding the dog and how much you groom the dog. Contact a local breeder if you can, or travel to a dog show with a Klee Kais in it and talk to that breeder/owner about the dog.

The Alaskan Klee Kai is a very active little dog. But if you are dedicated to the dog and can give him/her about 2 hours of exercise a day, then he/she should be a happy little dog. If you get your's as a puppy, he/she should do fine with your cats. But if you adopt a young adult or adult A.K.K, then make sure they do a temperament test with cats first before allowing the dog into your home. Give your cats time to comes to terms with the dog on their level. Give your cats a lot of high up places to hide/perch so that they can share territory together without conflict. Keep the dog and cats separated for 2 weeks before doing slow, supervised meets for another 2 weeks and if all goes well, you'll have a well adjusted dog and happy cats.

I live in a house now, but we lived in an apartment for years with our AKK. I'm not a runner, but my husband is and often takes our Klee Kai with him on his runs. We live in Southern California and they handle the heat just fine. Their coat just isn't as thick and fluffy as if they were living in snow - it's jokingly referred to as the "California" coat.

If they are taken very good care of, as well as not allowing to be fed table scraps, a high end food without too much protein, and is seen by your vet annually most of the Alaskan Klee Kai tend to live to be about 15 years old :)

She stops eating when is at her second home for the weekend. Diarrhea some off and on. Vomitting some off and on. She is approaching point of no return. All blood and imaging tests have been done. No answers. Possible food allergies have been suggested. She's still losing weight. Any suggestions much appreciated.

Were her food or treats on a recall list? Sometimes the Alaskan Klee Kai can be very nervous, and if she is left unattended, with new people, or if there is a lot of stress in the home, she will sense that as well. Thyroid and Liver issues are also found in this breed

my german shepherd had the same problem. What we did was to buy a whole chicken and cook it. then took the bones out. You may have heard that chicken bones splinter and should not be eaten, it is true to a point, but only if the chicken has only been cooked. Take the boned and boil them in vinegar until they crumble when you pinch them (we put it in our crock pot for 18-20 hours), then blend the bones in a blender. once that is done the bones will be safe to eat, and are very nutritious. we had to wean our dog onto the use of dry food though,

cont. first we gave her just rice and chicken (from the chicken the bones were from chopped small) with the bone gravy mixed all together then we gradually added dry food (and less rice and chicken) to get her used to eating it, and eventually we got to the point where it's entirely dry dog food with enough bone gravy to make it taste good. you'll have to decide what is best for your dog though. also once she wasn't eating the rice and chicken any more we just cooked the extra chicken for ourselves.

The Alaskan Husky was the foundation of the Alaskan Klee Kai, with a touch of Siberian Husky, Schipperke and American Eskimo dog. The breed is about 30 years old and is still extremely rare, due to a strict breeding program.

I live in California and have an Alaskan Klee Kai. The weather is very hot, and he does fine. Periods of high humidity and heat cause him to "blow coat." Our AKK is pretty good around children, but we made sure to keep him around a LOT of kids when he was a puppy. If you don't socialize this breed early on with as many people and as many other dogs you can, they will become people, and dog aggressive. As soon as they get their 6mo shots you should start them with a puppy socialization and obedience classes. That is a MUST! Another must, if possible, try and find a breeder close enough to drive to. It's so important to get a feel for the adult dogs, and puppies for adoption, in action. A puppy that looks cute on a breeders website, could be psycho when you get him home. (hahaha...that is what happened to me the first time, but you live, and learn.) I found a breeder that was a 3.5 hour drive away, but it was SO worth the drive.

Alaskan Klee Kai dogs like to roam and can be escape artist, similar to other huskies. We have a six foot privacy fence with large rocks lining the bottom. Some AKK can climb and dig or use an object to get over a fence like a trash can.

Hmmm, during the first 6 months your Alaskan Klee Kai puppy is home with you is VERY important. If you don't think you will be able to spend that time socializing him with as many people as you can, and then as many other dogs as you can, once he's had his rabies and parvo shots, then the AKK probably isn't the most ideal dog for you. Without the time for the early socialization, you'll find that it will be a difficult relationship between the two of you. :(

If you take care to spend the necessary time with early socialization, then Alaskan Klee Kai's can be very friendly, otherwise they can become very shy and definitely prone to biting. That goes for socialization with other dogs as well, or risk your dog becoming extremely dog aggressive. Puppy socialization class for this breed is an absolute must!!
