The Alaskan Malamute is basically a large breed of local dogs genuinely bred to be an Alaskan sled dog. The average weight of a typical Maly is 85 pounds,
and 25 inches tall for the males, as for the females, they weigh 75 pounds and are 23 inches tall. They are sometimes mixed up for Siberian Husky, but in
reality, they are different in many ways.
The Alaskan Malamute has a very beautiful double coat. Their top coat is harsh and thick, protecting it from the most extreme weather conditions.
Underneath the harsh coat is a dense, soft, oily coat. Their colors may include shades of light gray to black, as well as sables to red. The coats on their
legs and muzzle are almost always white.
Alaskan Malamutes are active and full of energy. They need long walks daily, and if you have enough space they would enjoy running and playing outside all
day. It is important for the owners to monitor them especially if the weather is too hot.
Extraordinarily loyal, friendly, and highly intelligent, a Maly usually matures into a quiet and calm adult. They have a friendly personality and therefore
not suitable as a watch dog. They are extremely sweet and affectionate towards their master. Known for their strong prey instinct, they should be
supervised when around small animals. The Maly is also great with older children who are mature enough to play with them. Thriving on companionship, a
typical Alaskan Malamute is happiest as long as they are given enough attention by their families.
The Alaskan Malamute is a working breed. Although they have been used as sled dogs, they aren't as fast in the long run as huskies. Originally taught to
think independently, they tend to be stubborn at times. They have impressive coats and strong overall build. Certainly makes a nice family pet for their
intelligence and loyalty.
With thick, coarse coat, they should be brushed at least twice a week. Malamutes are heavy shedders, and their undercoat falls off in clumps twice a year.
Bathing isn't really necessary as they shed dirt easily.
The Alaskan Malamute is known to be a tough breed. Some dogs bought from a puppy mill are noted to have health and temperamental problems. So, be careful
where you purchase them. As with other large breeds, they are also prone to hip dysplasia.
It may be surprising that a Maly is a thrifty feeder and requires less food than you think. They do eat what is given of them, which leads to obesity and
The beautiful Alaskan Malamute is highly intelligent. Bred for sledding, they are known to be independent, but stubborn. Although they may be difficult to
train for formal obedience, it would be easy to train them to be well-behaved as they love to please. Proper socialization and obedience training at a very
young age are imperative for Malamutes.
Most Malamutes are relatively quiet dogs. They are affectionate, loyal, yet have a mind of their own. Their friendliness and intelligence surely makes them
a great family pet.
