    The Alaskan Malamute has remained relatively unchanged throughout its history.  Today there are a range of variations in the appearance and size of the dog.  Each variation is stunning.  From the standard to the giants, from short coats to the woolly longhairs, the Malamute is a beautiful and independent dog with an amazing history.

    Alaskan Malamutes are the heavy hitters of the working dog class.  These amazing dogs can pull heavy loads on sleds over great distances and continue to be used for that purpose today.  The video below shows a real freight hauling team in action.
