Alaska's Iconic Dog - The Alaskan Malamute

An iconic breed, the Alaskan Malamute is genetically designed to withstand the harsh weather conditions in Alaska. Indeed, there’s no better place in the world than Alaska to raise an Alaskan Malamute. This breed averages 23-25 inches in height and 75-85 pounds in weight, so you will have a lot of dog to love. Being a pack animal by nature, the Alaskan Malamute does well with other dogs but is also affectionate with family members.

When you look at an Alaskan Malamute, its arctic origins are immediately apparent with the powerful bone structure and weatherproof coat. Yet, Mals are wonderfully affectionate, have a naughty twinkle in their eyes, and love to snuggle with their owners.

The Alaskan Malamute is a high endurance breed that needs daily exercise. This can include running around in a fenced yard or hiking and swimming with you. You can even buy a backpack for your Mal and have him or her pull some weight for you when you’re spending time in the outdoors.


Is an Alaskan Malamute a good family dog?

This is a large sized, high-energy dog, so while it makes for a great family pet, it is best avoided in families with young children whom the dog can easily overpower.

How much does an Alaskan Malamute cost?

The Alaskan Malamute ranges in price from $500 to $2,500 when you purchase the pup from a high-quality responsible breeder.

Are Alaskan Malamutes part wolf?

Like many primitive breeds, the Alaskan Malamute scores high in wolfiness, meaning they are more wolfish than many modern breeds. With that said, modern-day Alaskan Malamutes do not have direct ancestry to wolves.

Which is better – Malamute or Husky?

The Malamute is a bigger, stockier, and more muscular dog and has longer and fluffier fur than a Husky. You should know that Alaskan Malamutes need more grooming - daily brushing compared to weekly brushings for Huskies.
