Overview
Alaskan Malamutes are large working dogs. They have been used through the years as sled dogs, but aren't naturally as fast in the long run as there blue-eyed competition (huskies). Originally bred as a sled dog they were taught to think independently which sometimes results in them being a bit stubborn. Absolutely magnificent coloration and such a beautiful and strong overall build. Highly intelligent and loyal they are certain to make a nice family pet.
Character
The Alaskan Malamute is friendly, affectionate, and loyal, but can have a mind of its own. Although a hardy breed hereditary health problems may include hip dysplasia, chondrodysplasia, and bloat. Life expectancy is around 12-15 years.
Temperament
Extraordinarily loyal, intelligent, and friendly. After maturity the Alaskan Malamute usually settles in to a nice calm and quiet adult. With their friendly personality, they really aren't suitable as a guard dog. Although very intelligent they can prove to be stubborn. They have strong instinct so it's advised to keep an eye on them around small animals.
Care
The Alaskan Malamute has a very thick and coarse coat and would do well with a good brushing twice a week. They are very heavy shedders and there undercoat comes out in clumps twice a year. Bathes for this breed really aren't necessary as they easily shed dirt. Also as an energetic working dog they do best with some space to run or a walk at least twice a day.
Coat
This breed sports a very beautiful double coat. The top coat is thick and coarse protecting it from even the most extreme weather conditions. Beneath the coarse coat is a very soft, dense, and oily coat. Colors may include light grays shading to black as well as sables to red. The legs and muzzle nearly always white.
Training
Bred for sledding and independence the Alaskan Malamute can prove to be stubborn. Don't let the stubbornness fool you though because they are highly intelligent!
Activity
Alaskan Malamutes are very energetic and active. If you have the space they will run and play outside all day. Make sure to monitor them if the conditions are too hot.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Alaskan Malamute 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.

I have an 8 y/o male Alaskan Malamute. He gets aggressive with any other dogs we run across. Last week, he got out of our yard for the first time, and went and attacked another dog that was being walked in our neighborhood. The other dog is ok....his Owner is mad, but ok. He walked away once the other owner pulled his collar. What is the best type of training to help this? He grew up with a black lab in our house, and we lost her over a year ago.....was great with her......Don't want to have to get rid of my dog.....Please help.

First off, you need to take your dog to a vet. Once you've ruled out any medical problems, then you need to contact a dog behaviorist and/or positive reinforcement trainer that has worked with aggressive dogs before. The type of full on aggression you are describing is not good and it could easily happen again. Until then, your dog needs to be supervised at all times and I would suggest getting a caged muzzle so that if your dog ends up getting loose again, he can not injure another dog and have to be put down. You got very lucky about him getting out before.

Alaskan Malamute Is the Alaskan Malamute close to the Timber Wolf? How much is the average weight for this breed?

1 Comment

Anonymous

The nordic breeds of dogs have been known to look like or resemble the Timber Wolf. However, unless the dog has actual Timber Wolf in it's linage, it is not going to be close to the Timber Wolf. There are other breeds that resemble the Timber Wolf more such as the Czechoslovakian Wolfdog, the Tamaskan Dog, Northern Inuit Dog, Canadian Eskimo Dog, and the Utonagan. Some Alaskan Malamutes and Siberian Huskies have wolfish coloration to their coats making them look like a wolf as well. The average weight of the classic Alaskan Malamute is between 75 - 85 lbs, however the Giant Alaskan Malamute can reach weights between 130 - 180 lbs; larger then the Timber Wolf.

Unlike people, dog's actually can not be shy. She is afraid. Which means that she was not properly socialized as a puppy, so you have a lot of work a head of you. Contact your local Positive Reinforcement trainer and he/she will give you the tools to work with your dog. Fear is a major issue for a lot of dogs and it needs to be worked with a.s.a.p, as it can turn into fear-aggression in a heart beat. It's time to break out the yummy treats and teach her that the world is a safe and fun place!

Malamutes usually love to please so If I were you I would work on laying on the praise when she looks at you, notices you, and especially comes to you. I would get her out of the house to places like parks and have people say hi to her. She should come around if given enough attention. Malamutes feed off attention its in their genes. Mine absolutely loves to be brushed and it calms her down. Figure out something she likes and pinpoint it. try to get other people involved that you have around

In general, yes. Florida would be difficult for an Alaskan Malamute, unless you plan on allowing the dog to be inside for the hottest part of the day and only exercise the dog with fresh drinking water available; ie: river/lake. And when the hottest part of the day is gone. But even then, I would be extremely careful, as the Alaskan Malamute can over-heat very quickly and easily.

The Alaskan Malamute is different in several ways from the Siberian Husky. They are known to be calmer then the Siberian Husky, but they are stronger. So if the dog is not trained, it can be even harder to manage. But in general, they are known to be a lower energy dog, but they still need an average of 1 - 2 hours of exercise a day.

Yes, Alaskan Malamute's are calmer. I've had both. Malamutes can be more stubborn so you do have to train them early that you are boss. Without hurting them in ANY way. They do love treats and love. I have two Malamutes and that works well. They exercise each other!

What is the best food to feed a Alaskan malamute puppy. I feed my puppy Diamond puppy food.

1 Comment

The Alaskan Malamute is considered a large breed dog. In general, your dog should be eating a high quality grain-free dog food. At your local pet store, you'll be able to find a high quality grain-free large breed puppy food. That is what you should be feeding your Mal, and then switch him/her over to the adult version when he/she is a year old. The Diamond Natural's brand has a Large Breed Puppy food that is grain-free, that will be perfect if you wish to stick to the same brand.

are Malamute's ok around cats I have 2 cats and in a year we're looking at buying an Alaskan Malamute as a puppy. Upon reading more information about them, I found that with their instinct you have to watch them around small animals or kids. Does anyone here have a Malamute as well as other animals or as well as kids?

Malamutes are high energy dogs. They were bred to run and pull sleds. They do have a high level "chase" instinct. However, if raised correctly with cats and small children, they can be very loving and gentle. But do not leave unattended with either as they grow, until you feel comfortable that they won't "chase".

Most dogs will get along with pets they are raised with. Malamutes aim to please, so as long as your new pup gets plenty of exposure to the cats while a pup and understands unacceptable behavior, you should be fine. I would also stray from plush toys that encourage chasing and pouncing. I stick to bones and my hunting dogs never misunderstand their acceptable "play things" :)

Well Malamute's aren't good around smaller animals so it depends how they realate. If I were you I would raise both from a baby that would be best because they will both be small animals so you can try that.

I think it might depend on if they are fixed or not, how young they were fixed and how much attention you will be giving them. I have a fixed female and have introduced her to many kittens who have grown with them to adults. Babies, small kids, really rough kids, all kinds of dogs her favorite ones to actually make her play are tiny dogs, she will let cats lay all over her share water bowls. A baby could feed her by hand and the dog is gentle. If you raise your dog with love and show them you are the one to follow and make sure they know and feel you so you can communicate when they are doing wrong then you should have no issues. remember my exper. is with a fixed female.

I had a Malamute that was raised from a puppy with my cats. She was playful with the cats as a puppy and all seemed well. As an adult dog however, she would "tolerate" the cats inside but outside, they were prey. No catastorphies but I was always juggling so that they were not outside at the same time. I lost her at 11 1/2 years and want another. However, I am going to wait until my cats are gone.

A lot of dogs do this,it is an overwhelming instinct to make a bed.Most dogs that live out doors will dig a hole for a bed and thus this instinct is still used indoors( On your carpet). They have a desire to create a bed or comfortable place to lay.

If the puppies are dead, then you can either bury them yourself, or contact your vet for cremation. Your dam (the mother dog) needs to see a vet A.S.A.P, to instill there are no dead puppies inside her and that she is okay.

No. As long as the dog has fresh, clean water and adequate shade he will be fine. A dog's coat protects them from heat in the summer just like it protects him from cold in the winter.

There is a good chance your female has a thyroid problem, which needs to be treated by a vet and controlled with medication. Also, that is a hereditary defect and any puppies she's produce will probably have the same problem. Responsible breeders will screen for thyroid disease before breeding their dogs, as well as getting hips and elbows rated by OFA, getting the eyes cleared via CERF exam, and in this breed, making sure there is no chrondodyplasia (dwarfism) in the lines.

If your breeder has the pedigree of your dog, then what she is saying is untrue. The Alaskan Malamute has nothing to do with any of the Spanish breeds that would resemble a Malamute. The only dog that would be close would be the Spanish Mastiff and if that were true, then your dog is not purebred and the paper's she has are false. If you have her papers and her pedigree, you can contact the owner's of her grandsire and granddam and so on to make sure that they are of pure lines as well. Dogs can not be registered unless their pedigree/linage is also registered. But a fairly new kennel club, the Continental kennel club is allowing people to register their dogs even without previous papers, which is unfair to unsuspecting puppy owners and untrue in the dog's linage.

He has been through training and doggy day camp. He started getting people aggressive at 4 months old. We have been constantly working with a trainer.In July Jacks aggression got worse. Our trainer will no longer work with him because he tried to attack her. He was also kicked out of day camp because he is becoming a huge liability. I have contacted our vet, a canine behaviorist, other trainers, and malamute breeders. They have all said he needs to be put down. They believe it is something mentally wrong with him. He has bit me twice since july. We have 4 little children, I fear for them being next. I am at a loss, I feel like there should be something else I can do but everyone believes it is something that can't be fixed. They say that with him being unsure as a puppy and not growing out of it, he won't and the aggression will only get worse. I feel like I failed my dog, it is so hard to think this is the end.

I agree it is really disturbing to see such a young puppy be aggressive toward people. Given the fact that malamutes should not be that way, and that they are big dogs, it IS a huge liability. Unless you can find a truly experienced, knowledgable behaviorist who can work with you one on one, and you can guarantee you can keep your dog safe from people and vice versa, you really may need to put him down. Do you keep in touch with his breeder? Is this a typical trait in the bloodline? You definitely need to tell the breeder either way. A good one will be able to help you, and may not work with that line any more. A bad one won't care but they need to know anyway. Though it's rare, some dogs have a form of epilepsy that mimics aggression. Also, over vaccination can make aggression worse.

I have a malamute who is now 1yr and 4months. I had the same problem with her. She was very aggressive as a puppy and when I contacted the breeder she just said all her animals have always been friendly. I contacted a trainer near my house and he has been a great help. He suggested I gave her St. John's Wart twice a day and he also assisted with training. I still use the St. john's and it has really helped. She is no longer aggressive but she still is unsure/scared of some things. Not sure where u live but the trainer I used was Pat Currey with Currey's Family Pet Care in Romulus, Mi.

I have owned a malamute in the past and my family is planning on getting 2 this winter. I have researched and it is strongly suggested to get 2 of opposite sex. It is good for the older to be a male, because females tend to be more aggressive (there are always exceptions, but several breeders have suggested this). For some reason even 2 that get a long for a year or 2 will become aggressive if they are the same sex. I suggest you get a female.

I think that this can vary. I have had Malamutes for 20 yrs and all have been males. I think that because I got one at 8 weeks old and when he was a yr old I got another male Malamute puppy. They lived happily with each other and were inseparable for 13 yrs until Serac the younger one died and then Glacier died shortly after. I now have a 3yr old, 2yr old and a 10 week old puppy all males and they all get along. I did train them myself and that might be a difference. But I have been lucky because it is not the norm...Good luck.. be sure to treat them all with the same attention and kindness and show no favoritism

Have the opportunity of getting a second female but am reading that two female malamutes may not be a good idea. Our girl is very social. She does have a condition called EPI which we manage well with diet and medication. The puppy is 10 weeks old and is our dog's actual niece. We would get her desexed as soon as she is of age (our girl was desexed too). We would hate this pup to go to the wrong family and find she is used as a breeding machine and if it is a genetic condition then we could stop the EPI by having her. Would love to know your thoughts. We would hate to have our girl fight or go for dominance or be dominated. We are having a play date this week.

It is really hard to say how well this could work out. It is true that many female malamutes don't get along with other females (it's often worse with females than two males.) But sometimes, if both girls are not overly dominant types AND you know how to manage their behavior, it could work. If you don't have a lot experience in canine social behavior and pack management, I'd advise against it, but if you do or can work with someone who does, it is worth a try. I agree, it is better that pups from this line are not used for breeding as a tendency toward EPI could be hereditary

It is possible your malamute has a skin condition, possibly related to thyroid function. Probably the best place to start is with a thorough exam at the vet. What are you feeding her? Sometimes something like that could be diet related.

What kind of food are you feeding? If you feed a premium quality food with less filler, your malamute should have to go less often and in less amount. I feed a raw food diet and my dogs go less often and a small amount, since it's extremely digestable with no grain fillers. It makes housebreaking them a breeze!

Not sure if you may have tried this but your malamute is still fairly young and still learning his habits. We used to keep a younger dog in a airline type crate in our bedroom till they got the hang of the schedule at night. They were not left alone and as they are really a pretty clean breed they tend to not like to mess where they have to sleep as freely as when they can get away from it. If introduced to a crate early in the right way the dogs come to think of them as their personal den and safe place and after a while we would just leave the door open or even take it off completely and they would still sleep in it anyway. I used to show mals and the crate training also made transporting several at a time much safer for them and us on road trips.

The only thing is there's a gate to a wooden deck in my yard. After you go through the gate you'll be on a wooden deck and in front of you would be a lake.

I am not sure if you mean your yard is securely fenced, but with this breed it is important that it is. Malamutes may roam and since most have high prey drive, they may chase and kill small animals including other peoples' pets (cats, small dogs, etc). Many may go into the water too, that would depend on the individual dog. I've had some that love water and some that don't so much. But I would never have kept one in anything less than a very securely fenced yard. Even if you have a fenced yard, a malamute will need more exercise than being alone in the yard. Walks, jogs and other activities will be necessary. Remember, these are working dogs and need physical and mental stimulation on a daily basis, or they may be very destructive.

It would be a good idea to visit a good breeder of malamutes and get some first hand experience with the breed. The breeder can give you more input about the suitability of this breed for your lifestyle. Getting one just because you want one doesn't take into account your ability to meet the dog's needs. Leaving an active, working breed of dog alone that many hours each day is not going to be ideal, and you need to honestly decide if you will be able to meet the dog's need for exercise, mental stimulation and training. Any dog bred to work is going to need things to do, and if those needs are not met the dog may become very destructive.

To be honest I wouldnt recommend a Mal in this instance, they are a beautiful breed yes, but they should not be bought as a trophy dog. They are highly playful (and with that I mean destructive!) If left alone they will find ways to amuse themselves and if this involves destroying anything and everything thats exactly what they'll do - sure, they'll own up to it but it wont stop it happening again... and AGAIN! They have their own minds, they are stubborn and not ideal for first time dog owners!! Visit real websites, get onto malamute forums and see what real people say. Do NOT rush into a mal or husky without thinking right into it! I have two females so I honestly do know what Im saying!

You might want to look for a Malamute dog club in your area and try to get to know some of the people and their dogs and see if they are really what you would be happy with. Getting a dog because it reminds you of a wolf is not a great reason. I did the same thing. the first time I walked nto a kennel and saw them really up close and personal it was love at first site. I made pretty much every mistake you can make but in the end and after 30 years with them, up to a dozen at a time, and many new activities that I never even knew of I have to say that I can not even imagine a greater breed of dogs to have in my life. As for male/female differences, sure there are differences but nothing all that drastic. In the end they are all different as all people are different. Personally I think males tend to be a bit more independent while females tend to be sweeter. Either is going to be in large part the product of how they are raised.

My mal is almost two years old and had never had a temperamental personality. I recently moved... My mal is almost two years old and had never had a temperamental personality. I recently moved to a different neighborhood where an airedale terrier, amongst a hundred other breeds, lives and he gets very aggressive when this dogs strolls by. He will bark at him through the windows of the house and when we are sitting on the porch. Today, he ran off the porch and attacked the dog. One time when they first met, we were both walking on the same sidewalk, the airedale lunged toward my dog and there was a brief fight but I pulled him away with his leash. So ever since that encounter its just been aggression coming out towards that dog only. Then today it happened where he just ran right across the street towards the airedale. My mal is very sweet and has never shown this to me other than with this one dog. I'm so confused! Please any advice will do.

Your malamute is reaching maturity and has already decided he does not like this dog. You need to work with a qualified behaviorist AND keep your dog from having further encounters with this dog, especially with your dog off leash. Once you get the knowledge to train and manage this behavior, if the owner of the airedale is willing to work with you and the behaviorist, you can try to repair the relationship. If you aren't proactive in getting this behavior under control your dog may begin to generalize to other dogs that either look or act like the airedale, or just other dogs in general.

In short, yes. Malamutes can be very dominant with other dogs, and some will display this trait even with the right upbringing. I would start working now to train your malamute puppy, and working with a qualified behaviorist is ideal. Two female dogs are the most likely to have dominance issues and they can be serious or fatal. I am not trying to scare you but to get you to be proactive in raising the malamute to work out well with the pug. Because of the size difference, as the malamute grows, if things go wrong it can be very bad. Working on this right now while the pup is young and learning is critical to ensuring things are safe for your pug when the malamute is full grown and mature (2-3 years of age.) Don't just let them "work it out" as that won't go well.

My malamute is a strong well built bitch and with me and my partner she is fun to be around, good fun and a bit crafty. Recently she is out of character, she has shown aggression to two diff people, with the child she lurched at him but made no noise or growl, didn't hurt him cos my partner got to her first, then she got out of her yard, normally this doesn't happen but when it does she normally comes back but this day she took herself to the park, met her boyfriend malamute( we will breed them next year) she played great with him off the lead until she tried to convince him to leave the park. Got her to come back and when all dogs were going back on the lead, 2 huskies, 2 malamutes and a completely different breed she actually turned the other way and ran, an hour later we caught her in the park. Then last night a friend whom she has met before pets her and she snarled, he maintains it was just a warning and today knowing I'm still not speaking to her she has gone on a hunger strike

I think you need to find a person who has a lot of experience with canine behavior, to help you understand your dog and give you methods to train her. A malamute that shows aggression to people is VERY bad, and it is not a good idea to breed her. It is against the breed standard for temperament and it may be passed on to her puppies. From what you describe you may have a serious problem on your hands, if she can escape and she is aggressive toward people. What if she gets out and hurts someone? You definitely need a good trainer/behaviorist sooner rather than later.

I'm wanting to wait until her third heat so she's filled out a bit more. She is roughly in the early 30s kg. My boy is 9 months and is in the mid 40s kg. Will his size cause her to have large pups? I don't want to put my girl's life at risk if there are going to be too many complications and if she's too small

It will take about 3 years and then it is a maybe. My malamute shep. cross is showing some signs of maturity. She is great with our 3 grandkids, but not with our other dogs. Although she never starts a problem she always finishes it.

He is way over weight and has joint problems and possibly arthritis. So he has a bit of trouble getting up and down but once he is up he seems to be fine moving around. He has been eating about 2 cups a day maybe a little less. I have been giving him glucoseamine or however you spell it and bayer asprin. I take him for walks about 3 times a week. So i guess my question would be is there anything else I can do to help this old man or if I should change what I am doing.

Unless your Vet told you to do so, I would stop the aspril. Can cause bleeding problem. As an old dog, his metablism is slow, so keeping him moving is the key. I would also take him to the Vet and make sure his thyroid is functioning normally. If it's not, that could be why he's overweight.

Bayer Asprin is very deadly for dogs. I am a vet techian and people need to learn that people medicine isn't for animals. You need to take him to a vet if you haven't and next time ask a vet and gain some knowledge before doing something like this.

Swimming is always a good exercise as it's not to hard on their joints
