To have the best success at getting your Alaskan Malamute to stop you need to figure out WHY he is howling. Is he housed alone outside? If so he is probably very lonely. Even if he is inside but left alone for long periods of time, he is still probably lonely. Most dogs, malamutes included, don't like to spend all their time alone. Also, there is a good chance he needs more exercise and mental stimulation. These are working dogs who weren't designed to sit in a house, yard or kennel 24/7, but need things to do to keep their minds and bodies active. Try to take him for walks or runs, and if he is good with other dogs, set up times for him to visit and play with other dogs at least a few times a week. The more you can do with him the happier he will be, and that alone should help the howling to diminish.
