The temperament

Tip a friend

The Alaskan Malamute is a dog of which it’s not easy to write about: you will be able to fully appreciate his temperament, on top of his aesthetic qualities, only by living with him day by day. The Malamute is a strong, steady and extremely clever dog, but up and for most he’s got an instinct out of  the ordinary, comparable to the one of the wolf. These had to be the features of a dog  raised by nomadic tribes in extreme living conditions (cold, ice, hard work).

The natural selection and the one operated by the Man (the weakest dogs or the ones that were not able to perform their job used to get killed), despite of being tough and cruel, contributed to create a breed with no comparisons: strong, powerful, tenacious, yet sweet and loving. These features were required so that the Malamute could do the job he was created for: hauling the sledge. He also needed to be extremely smart in order to be able to make decisions in case of danger on his path. He also needed to be tolerant and peaceful with the other dogs: a dog fight on a run would have meant death for the musher that could get stuck on the pak.

The Nordic breeds still show a lot of the wolf features: they mentally mature very early and they find immediately their ranking  position inside the pack. The pack for a Malamute it’s his leader and his family. If he’s able to identify his alpha leader within his human family, then he’ll decide to take a submissive position and he’ll be a mellowed and obedient dog. On the other hand, if no one educates him and lets him free to do what he wants, he will feel he’s entitled the Alpha role and it’ll be extremely hard to change his mind about it!

He’s a natural born thief: he doesn’t beg or drool for a piece of bread, he simply steals it! Because of the breed original upbringings where food was not readily available, the Malamutes still displays a very high prey drive. He will chase chickens, rabbits, sheep and even horses because he thinks he needs to provide his own food for himself! It’ll be up to his leader to educate him in a way so that he will respect the other animals, and that there’s no need for hunting, because his leader is the one that will be providing him with his food. However, hunting for a Malamute it’s a pleasure and fun, he’ll give that up just to please his leader.

The Alaskan Malamute does not make a good guardian or protection dog, however, there are a few exceptions. Because of his ponderous size he can still intimidate intruders or strangers.

The Malamute is a very proud and dignified breed: even though he’s not too outgoing and nagging, he surely is a very loving dog. He’ll limit himself to small endearments such as small muzzle touches on our hands when he greets us. He will usually pick his favorite spot outdoors where he can keep an eye on our moves.
