ALASKAN MALAMUTE


Malamutes are powerful, active and versatile dogs. Their place in the history and culture of Northern Natives is the same as the horse to Western Americans. They are a "freight dog", and their ability to function as sledge dog doing heavy freighting in the Arctic is most important. Malamutes are suitable for activities like backpacking, skijouring and weight pulling, as well as pulling sleds. Many have demonstrated those abilities and have earned working titles. Even though they require firm training and discipline, Malamutes are great family dogs, suitable for obedience, agility, and therapy dog work.
