Alaskan Malamute Dogs & Puppies for Sale

The Alaskan Malamute is one of the oldest Arctic sledge dogs that travelled to Alaska with native people thousands of years ago, where the modern breed developed. They have the same powerful bodies and robust build as other Nordic canines, like the Siberian Husky and Samoyed, as they were bred to haul heavy loads. As a result, they have high energy levels and impressive endurance.

Along with serving as a working and hunting dog, Alaskan Malamutes make excellent companion animals thanks to their people-loving nature and desire for family interaction. In addition, their wolf-like looks, long, thick coats and fluffy, curled tails make them an aesthetically beautiful breed.

Meet the Alaskan Malamute

This large dog stands around 2 feet tall and typically weighs an astonishing 75 to 100 pounds! These hefty canines have strong, muscular bodies designed to carry weight. Their heads are large with small ears that stand erect and brown almond-shaped eyes. Along with their dark eyes, most Malamutes will have black noses and gums, too.

Other distinctive features of the Alaskan Malamute are their large fluffy tails and a thick double coat. Their long undercoat is woolly and oily to repel water and cold weather. Then, their overcoat is thick and coarse, adding additional warmth. Their hair is longer on some body parts, such as the shoulders, neck, back, and thighs.

As you can imagine, this coat sheds a lot, so you'll have to get used to finding white fur all over your house! Moreover, they shed heavily twice a year when their hair falls out in large clumps. During this time, it's best to brush them every day. After that, it's sufficient to groom them two or three times a week.

All Alaskan Malamute's coats are white with another colour, usually grey, sable and black. Still, seal and red are both possible. They typically have white faces and inner ears with dark foreheads and outer ears. Additionally, their bellies are generally white, along with their feet and parts of their legs.

The temperament of an Alaskan Malamute

The Alaskan Malamute is a working dog; therefore, this breed has tonnes of energy and requires exercise and long walks multiple times a day. They love to run, play and go on hikes and don't tire easily. Moreover, they get bored quickly, and if their owner does not meet their high energy needs, they can become destructive.

Malamutes have strong hunting instincts and will chase cats and other small animals if they do not grow up around them. Therefore, they must have an enclosed garden to prevent them from getting out and terrorising the neighbourhood moggies! They also love to dig, so we recommend creating a sandpit or digging patch for them to release this urge and save your plants!

Malamutes are intelligent, but training them while young is essential for creating obedient pets. They may challenge their owners for the alpha position otherwise. However, although they can be stubborn with obedience training, housetraining them is effortless.

Alaskan Malamutes are relatively quiet, and they rarely bark, although some may howl. In addition, these dogs are super friendly towards people, and their pack instinct makes them want to be an integral part of the family.

10 reasons to add an Alaskan Malamute to your family

  1. They are super friendly - Malamutes love humans, so although they won't make a good guard dog, they will become best mates with all your friends and family.
  2. They don't bark much - This breed is pretty quiet and does not bark at visitors or people walking past the house.
  3. They are warm and cuddly - These dogs act as huge hot water bottles and are always up for a snuggle session.
  4. They make good house pets - Despite their large size and heavy build, Malamutes are surprisingly gentle in the house and seldom knock over objects. Moreover, their love of humans makes them ideal furry friends to cuddle with on the sofa.
  5. You don't have to worry about them in the winter - While some breeds can be sensitive to cold climates, these canines thrive in harsh British or Northern European winters. Thus, they can stay outside all day should they wish.
  6. They will keep you fit - Long walks are non-negotiable with Malamutes, so if you want to be more active but hate the gym, this pup may be the ideal fit.
  7. They love being in nature - Similarly, if you're looking for an excuse to get out more and connect to mother nature, this outdoorsy canine is it.
  8. They will help with the chores - This working dog is always looking for a job. If you're on a hike, they will happily carry your backpack, or if you need a cart of heavy items pulled around, they will always be ready to help
  9. They have sweet faces - Their white facial colouring, black noses and dark round eyes give them a very endearing expression
  10. They are gentle wolves - The Malamute may look like the ancestor of the domestic dog. Still, their sweet and friendly nature could not be any different.

Best homes for an Alaskan Malamute

This dog is made for cold temperatures, so they are not suited to a Mediterranean climate but can be a good choice for those living in Northern Europe or even the UK. Another essential requirement for their environment is plenty of space to run around and burn off their excess energy. Thus, they can be an ideal dog if you have a large, enclosed garden. Needless to say, they are not the right choice for those living in apartments.

The best human companion for an Alaskan Malamute is someone with previous experience with dogs. In addition, they will thrive with someone who leads an active life and will take them on plenty of walks, hikes, and runs. If their owner does not have the time or energy, Malamutes will get bored and become challenging to handle. Therefore, you may want to consider hiring a dog walker or sitter to help you out when you are busy.

If socialised early, the Alaskan Malamute can be friendly with other pets. However, some tend to become assertive, so they often do better as solo pets. Lastly, they are gentle around children but considering their strength and size; they are not the best choice for families with young kids.

Frequently Asked Questions About Alaskan Malamute Puppies

Why should I choose an Alaskan Malamute from The Pedigree Paws rather than elsewhere?
At The Pedigree Paws, we work with the most trusted and experienced Alaskan Malamute breeders in the dog breeding industry. We are always cautious when selecting breeders to ensure all our puppies are raised in the best conditions where they receive excellent care. Because of this, we do not work with puppy mills or commercial facilities as these associations do not meet our high welfare requirements. Thus, you can rest assured that you won’t support any unethical breeding when choosing an Alaskan Malamute with us.
Is an Alaskan Malamute the right puppy for me?
Alaskan Malamutes are highly energetic and need an active owner who takes them on long walks and engages in frequent play sessions. They love to be outside, so they need a home with an enclosed outdoor space. These canines struggle in warm temperatures because of their heritage and thick fluffy coat. Generally, the British climate is okay for them, but they will need a paddling pool to cool off on any hot days. They usually do better as the only pet rather than with other animals. Finally, they may not be best suited to a first-time dog owner because of their high needs.
Is The Pedigree Paws trustworthy?
Every dog breeder would be honourable and trustworthy in a perfect world, but unfortunately, this is not yet the case. We are firmly against unethical breeding and run our business with our high morals around animal welfare at the core of all we do. As a result, we make sure that we are only working with reputable breeders who ethically produce healthy and even-tempered Alaskan Malamute pups. To do this, we have a comprehensive application and selection process and several requirements that breeders must meet when listing their puppies. Our many fantastic customer reviews reflect this, which you can read on our testimonials page.
Are Alaskan Malamute puppies from The Pedigree Paws healthy?
Alaskan Malamutes are relatively healthy, but like all pedigree breeds, they are prone to a few genetic diseases. Therefore, we always do what we can to minimise the risk of our puppies inheriting these conditions. For example, our breeders test the DNA of their breeding dogs before mating them, and we will only list puppies that the breeders can prove are not at risk. At The Pedigree Paws, we will also prepare your new puppy for a healthy start to their life. The breeder will take your Malamute pup to a vet for a health checkup, deworming treatment and vaccinations before sending them to you.
When can I receive my Alaskan Malamute puppy?
The first two to three months of a puppy’s life are crucial for ensuring it grows into a healthy, fully developed, and well-socialised family dog. The breeder’s responsibility is to provide you with an Alaskan Malamute in top health and well socialised with people. We keep every puppy with their mum for the first eight to 12 weeks of their lives to guarantee this. This duration allows them to wean at their own pace, receiving vital nutrients from their mother and becoming familiar with humans, resulting in a friendly, loyal, and trainable pup.
Can I see the parents of my Alaskan Malamute puppy?
It’s natural to have some concerns when purchasing a new pedigree puppy. However, seeing your new Malamute and its parents before buying is an excellent way to put your mind at ease. Therefore, you can arrange a video call with the breeder to virtually meet your new pup and its parents, checking their health and temperament for yourself.
Will I receive the pedigree documents of my Alaskan Malamute?
Whenever you buy a pedigree puppy, you should always acquire proof of its breed registration. While some untrustworthy dog breeders won’t provide this, all The Pedigree Paws breeders do. So, you can buy your new Malamute with the assurance that you’ll get genuine and internationally recognised pedigree documents with them. The registration will be from one of the top breeding organisations like FCI, AKC, or The Kennel Club.
Do your Alaskan Malamute puppies come from good breeders?
We can confidently select the very best Alaskan Malamute breeders in the industry thanks to our extensive application procedure. In addition to our checks, they also meet the conditions of international pedigree associations. As a result, you can use our platform to shop for your new Malamute, knowing they have received excellent care.
Are these Alaskan Malamute puppies raised in a family home or breeding facility?
We believe the only ethical place to raise sociable and even-tempered pets is in a family home so that they get familiar with humans straight away. Thus, we require our breeders to keep their puppies in their homes around the family. Plus, they stay with their mother, so they get the care and development needed with no rush or intervention. Most pups in puppy mills receive no socialisation, so they are not ready for their forever home. Furthermore, the conditions are often unacceptable as the puppies usually stay in cages, away from their mothers. This environment compromises their immune system, creates stress and leads to many behavioural problems. Needless to say, we do not work with these types of breeding facilities.
How can I help my Alaskan Malamute settle into its new home?
Bringing a new puppy into your home is an exciting time, but it’s also a massive change for your new Malamute. Therefore, they might feel anxious or overwhelmed when they arrive, so we have a few recommendations to help them settle. Before their arrival, get everything prepared, including putting a cosy bed in a quiet environment. It’s also a nice idea to place a hot water bottle underneath a blanket here as a source of comfort. Then when your pup arrives, keep them on their leash as you slowly and calmly introduce them to their new home and things. If they seem anxious or stressed, let them retreat to their bed rather than trying to get them to interact or play.
