Don’t be fooled by the strong, wolf-like appearance of this breed. Alaskan Malamutes are incredibly friendly and provide bundles of fun. With large, heavy bones and broad shoulders, the ‘Mal’ is well-suited to agility trials, and will jump at the chance to exercise with its owner. Be sure to take your pooch on regular walks, hikes, runs and even swims!
This Spitz breed was crowned the official state dog of Alaska in 2010, following campaign efforts led by some 400 schoolchildren!
With careful training, these pooches make extremely loyal, loving and fun pets. Unlike their wolf-dog ancestors, they are trusting and will be friendly to strangers. They are sometimes used by hospitals as therapy dogs, as their hearts of gold provide comfort to those in need of it.
If you are considering getting an Alaskan Malamute, some good news is that they aren’t prone to barking the house down. Instead, they communicate by ‘talking or howling. They are far too friendly to be a guard dog.
