The Alaskan Malamute is the largest of the arctic breeds. It weighs on average 70 to 95 pounds (32 to 43 kg) and can grow between 22″ to 26 ” (56 to 66cm) tall. Alaskan Malamutes have a thick double coat that comes in a variety of shades wolf grey, black and white, wolf sable or red but the only solid colour is white. The Malamute breed moults heavily, so needs to be brushed twice a week but very rarely needs bathing.
The Alaskan Malamute is a very loyal and intelligent dog but can sometimes be hard to train. They need the owner to be firm and confident, especially with the male Malamute as they can become dominant. The malamute breed is good with children but don’t they always realise how big they are and can knock smaller children over when they are too excited.
Alaskan Malamutes are an active breed and are not well suited to apartment life, they can easily live outdoors and because of their thick coat, can withstand the cold, just make sure they have sufficient shade in the hotter months.
