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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

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

1 Comment


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 their lineage, 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.

I have a female Malamute. She is 9 months old and is very shy. Any help in encouraging her to open up and not be so shy? She is shy when in the house that she opts to go to the corner. She comes out to play but when I approach her she goes to hide. What can I do to break through to her and reach her?



Unlike people, dog's actually can not be shy. She is afraid. Which means that she was not been properly socialized as a puppy, so you have a lot of work ahead 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 as it is 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?



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.


Boy, I think Florida would be extremely difficult. We live in MN and even in the heat of our summer it's a lot and they have to come inside to cool off.
