I went and visited a gentlemen that is selling his Alaskan Malamutes that he breeds up in the mountains. Unfortunately,at this time, until his next breed next year, I wasn't able to get one because I don't have a good enough enviroment for a puppy quite yet until I move back home. However, I did get some photos of the little pups they came out very good. Here are the links.
Yes, I love them! But they need allot of space and allot of attention..So wait until you have both!!! I have a six month old who carries his stuffed malamute around with him all the time. I've attached a photo link...
Thanks Ozfest43! He is precious..except he goes in a fit when confined... like in a crate... I don't mean just crying... He hyperventolates.. and there is more spit outside of his crate door... then a camel could do. He cries and cries and gasps for air. You can put a beef bone in there or anything... and he will not touch it..He will not drink out of his water dish either. Just STUBBORN...which is part of thier nature. I beleave 1/2 of it is stubborn and the other half is HE WANTS TO LAY OUTSIDE on the cold ground! So now we put him in the crate from 11pm-4am Then when he goes outside to pee and lays down... which only a frontend loader could move him... we leave him out there.. he goes right to sleep and sleeps out there until 8 am. We had a hard time finding a black and white male..... finally we did.. 6 hrs away...made a long trip 12hr round plus extra time for stops.. but well worth it.
My friends dog had the same problem with being in the crate for a little while when he went to work for a little while. He got to the point where he hired someone to come and visit for about 2 hrs a day or something like that until he was better. As for your Malamute, how hard of a time, if any, have you had traing? I have heard from multiple people that these type of dogs are a little stuborn, but haven't heard if they are hard to train or not. I'm looking forward to getting one, I think i'm going ot have to wait until next spring when his next litter comes in to get one. I think its better that way, because like you said wait to have space and i'll have that back home in Raleigh. Thanks for the info, Redford.
Actually easy to train.. fully house trained. He is lead trained and doesn't pull you when your walking. He knows sit and shake one paw then the other. He knows release...if he has anything in his mouth. He lets you fully have control over his toys and food... "which is very very important" He knows how to car ride in one position with out roaming. He doesn't beg or bother you when your eatting.. But he want full freedom of the house and property... which is fine...except for the crate..to him that is JAIL..that means no kisses, no hugs, no rubs, no roaming, not being able to be right next to you.. He looks at you as "what did I do?" and he cries to sleep..and keeps waking up siging..and whimpering.. Last night I put him in the crate at 10:30 finally by 11:45 he had passed out and a sleep... but at 2 am.. he started back in... so I let him out into the yard for the night. They are a loving, caring attention seeking dog. But remember they are strong, you need to take the alpha role and always have control and power over them.. You'll love one!!! As long as you have the time and the SPACE..a BIG yard.. ha ha ha GOOD LUCK
Appreciate the info, Redford. I can't wait to get one, it just kind of stinks that i'm going to have to wait until spring of next year to get one, I wish I had the time and property allowment to get one now. But I just want what is best for the dog, and right now unfortunately I don't have the resources for a good enviroment for a puppy. Thanks again for the info.
