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.

Does your Alaskan Malamute bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
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.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
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! Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Alaskan Malamute puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Is there really a breed that is a "giant" Alaskan malamute or is this just some breeder saying that their dogs are bigger than every one else?

There are two strains of the Alaskan Malamute breed, the standard and the giant. The standard Alaskan Malamute is recognized by the AKC, CKC and UKC. While the giant is not. The giant Alaskan Malamute is a sub-species of the standard Alaskan Malamute that was bred to be much larger by the native people hundreds of years ago. Several breeders have continued with those lines to keep the sub-breed alive today.

There is natural variation within the breed. That being said if a breeder breeds for giants structure and temperament may be overlooked and they are definitely not breeding to improve the breed or meet the breeds standard.

Would it be considered okay to have a malamute and live in Massachusetts? It can be very hot in the summer but then again the winters are super cold and snowy.

The Alaskan Malamute would do perfectly fine in Massachusetts as long as the dog had access to the indoors with air conditioning during the summer. When outside, the dog must have access to fresh water and shade during the summer as well. Of course, I would recommend not taking the dog out for long, strenuous walks or hikes during the high heat of the day. Walking the dog at night, early morning or near water so the dog can cool off would be best.

My Malamute was loyal and friendly with other animals. She didn't take offense with other dogs unless they came at me or the property and she didn't bother any cats as she would walk around them. Our Malamute is very friendly to my neighbors. If she got out they would watch her or put her back in the yard.

That's really nice. A lot of Malamutes have a higher prey drive and will chase cats really easily. But it's good to know that you have a great companion at your side.

I have an 8-year-old 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. He grew up with a black lab in our house, and we lost her over a year ago. I don't want to have to get rid of my dog. What is the best type of training to help this?

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 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.

Malamutes aren't dog-friendly. There's no "behaviorist" that can change that not even Cesar. Keep him in a secure fence or on a leash when you walk him. There's nothing wrong with him. YOU let him get out unsupervised. He got along with a female dog and that's normal because she was a part of your household pack. I'm pretty sure you should never put a malamute with a same sex dog. Female to female or male to male doesn't work. Malamutes LOVE all people. They are sweethearts. My experience is that they ignore birds of every kind and don't pay any attention to reptiles either. But mammals are all fair game to Malamutes. You can put your money on the Malamute to win the fight.

I disagree. We have had our female Malamute with our female Siberian together for 2 years and she is the most friendly dog ever. She gets along with any dog she comes in contact with. I think if you interact them and raise them while they are a puppy then they will be very social.

I know Malamutes get along with other dogs if you introduce them early on. We have people that bought our dogs and bring them to dog parks every week at least. They love it there. I don't think making a statement like "Malamutes aren't dog-friendly" is kind of an ignorant remark.

We take our Malamute downtown and to the farmers market every weekend. She has never been aggressive toward any of the other dogs. She loves her time off leash to run and play with other dogs. We started her socialization as soon as she had her shots and have continued exposing her to people and other animals. The only aggressive behavior we've observed is when a bear or moose is near the yard and that's more of a productive behavior. Malamutes like all dog breeds are only as good as their owners have trained them to be.

I have a seven month old giant Alaskan malamute and she is an alpha. Takes a lot of patience for training as they are stubborn. Sanoah can be frightfull of certain people. I have figured out she is unsure of those who tried to force her to let them pet her when she was younger. Does not like people she doesnot know and we are working on this. Be prepared to spend a lot of your time working training with them. They are so beautiful and cant wait to grow with her for many years to come.

Agreed with the first response of the first check for medical, then work with a good trainer to help re-teach your dog what is acceptable. I'm on my third Malamute and he loves everything--people, dogs, cats, bunnies; my second Malamute was a therapy dog. Due to my current boy's size, he brings out a defensive side in both male and female dogs that we encounter. Teaching him proper "introductory" manners has saved many a dog fight because the other dog realizes my guy isn't there to harm but to play. Good luck on your training!
