This dog is built for the outdoors! With a solid frame and weatherproof coat, this breed is an excellent worker. Although physically they are similar to wolves, the Malamute is very much a domestic dog.
For domestic pets, this breed will require a specific puppy diet to suit its breed type in order to prevent bone and joint issues. As a work dog, the Alaskan will need a special "performance" diet in order to maintain optimum health.
This breed requires a thorough daily brushing. Males will shed once a year and females twice. They are known to be particularly clean dogs and will not require frequent baths.
