What are Malamutes like?
Malamutes are sweet and affectionate with their owners, according to Dog Breed Info. They are very intelligent and loyal. Because they are friendly, don’t count on them as guard dogs, even though when grown, Malamutes can get pretty big. However, if called upon, they will protect their family from harm.
They are fine with children who are old enough to safely play with dogs. These are children who have already learned how to approach and respect dogs. Among the Arctic dogs, Alaskan Malamutes are the largest.
They enjoy outdoor activities. They adore their humans, so make sure they get enough human companionship from you and the family, and not leave them outside all by themselves. They also like being indoors in order to be with you. That is how much they value human company.
If you are thinking about getting a Malamute, know that they are fairly quiet. However, they do howl. And they also like to dig. So if you have a prized garden, reconsider or find a way to keep your Malamute from it.
If they are around small animals they do not know, you should keep an eye on them and hang around because Malamutes have a strong prey instinct. That doesn’t mean they can’t be around your kittens. Some Malamutes have raised kittens as their own kids. You can read more about Alaskan Malamutes here. Enjoy watching the affectionate Malamute puppy kissing Dad.
