Overview
Developed during the 1970's in Alaska by Linda Spurlin, the Alaskan Klee Kai is a smaller version of the Alaskan Husky. Bred as companions, this breed is relatively new, having been recognized by the UKC in 1997. They come in 3 sizes: Toy, Miniature, and Standard.
Character
The Alaskan Klee Kai's most distinctive characteristic is the full facial mask. This breed is extremely loyal, affectionate with family, and active.
Temperament
Alaskan Klee Kai's are highly intelligent, highly devoted, and agile. They thrive on attention and companionship. The Alaskan Klee Kai is reserved around strangers and will alert by barking. They are also "talkers", emitting vocal sounds when they want attention. They do well with children and other pets they have been raised with.
Care
The Alaskan Klee Kai requires frequent brushing. Dry shampoo or bathe when necessary. This breed has no known health issues.
Coat
A double coat breed, the Alaskan Klee Kai has a well-furred appearance. Heavier fur is at the ruff of the neck and on the tail. They are average shedders and shed heavily twice a year.
Training
Early intense socialization is a must. This breed also does well in obedience. They require firmness, fairness, and consistency.
Activity
The Alaskan Klee Kai does best with a securely fenced yard. They are excellent escape artists, so fencing must be set into the ground to prevent digging and tall enough to prevent jumping. They benefit from daily exercise and family interaction.

Height
Toy: 13; Miniature: 13-15; Standard: 15-17.5 inches

Do they shed a lot and how often do they need to get their fur trimmed?

The Alaskan Klee Kai sheds a fair amount and needs to be brushed 2 - 3 times a week. However, they should not be trimmed or shaved, they do not need it and their fur does not grow back like other breeds that get shaved/trimmed regularly.

The Alaskan Klee Kai is a reputable breed of dog. They are not a mixed breed such as the Pomski (Siberian Husky/Pomeranian cross). The breed was developed in Wasilla, Alaska, from the early 1970s to 1988 by Linda S. Spurlin and her family.The breed was developed with Siberian and Alaskan Huskies, using Schipperke and American Eskimo Dog to bring down the size without dwarfism. She bred these dogs in private until she released them to the general public in 1988.

The Alaskan Klee-Kai is an indoor dog, but they love to play outside. They need an average of an hour and a half of running exercise a day.

I'm concerned about shedding. I know that Klee Kais shed, but how often and to what extent?

The best thing to do is to have face-to-face time with the breed itself. The Klee Kais breed sheds a fair amount, they are seasonal shedders, but also shed on a daily basis. But it would depend on the quality of food you are feeding the dog and how much you groom the dog. Contact a local breeder if you can, or travel to a dog show with a Klee Kais in it and talk to that breeder/owner about the dog.

The Alaskan Klee Kai is a very active little dog. But if you are dedicated to the dog and can give him/her about 2 hours of exercise a day, then he/she should be a happy little dog. If you get your's as a puppy, he/she should do fine with your cats. But if you adopt a young adult or adult A.K.K, then make sure they do a temperament test with cats first before allowing the dog into your home. Give your cats time to comes to terms with the dog on their level. Give your cats a lot of high up places to hide/perch so that they can share territory together without conflict. Keep the dog and cats separated for 2 weeks before doing slow, supervised meets for another 2 weeks and if all goes well, you'll have a well adjusted dog and happy cats.

I raised my Klee Kai around my roommates cat, and they are now best friends. Be forewarned that they love rough housing because the breed is athletic. I recommend leaving a separator between the puppy and the cats so that they build curiosity to each other while respecting boundaries and familiarize themselves with each other with a little safe distance.
