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.

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

Is Florida too hot for Alaskan Malamutes? I wanted to know if Florida is too hot for an Alaskan Malamute?

1 Comment

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.

Are Alaskan Malamutes high energy like Huskies? Are Alaskan Malamutes hard to contain like Huskies are?

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.

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

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 will get along with any critter provided they are properly introduced .They were bred to babysit small children and are great with kids. Supervise them and its all good

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.

Try a product called the Gentle Leader. This will give you control of your dog's head, thus giving you more control over his actions.

what makes an alaskan malamute scratch on carpet before laying down?

1 Comment

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.

is texas too hot for malamute dogs?

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.
