We have been breeding Champion Alaskan Malamutes
for over 25 years--we average about one litter a year. We are members
of the Alaskan Malamute Club of America and the Southern California
We own and operate a small boarding kennel in the Simi Valley. It helps support our "rescue habit!" Visit our Double T Kennels website.
This is not a breed for everyone--Malamutes have a pack mentality which presents unique problems since most people purchase a dog either as a family companion or as a family guardian. Malamutes, are companions but as part of a pack, which means you must be in charge. If you are not the pack leader, then you run the risk of your Malamute looking at you as if you are subordinate in their hierarchy. That can be very confusing for the dog.
There are some breeders who breed dogs for all the wrong reasons.
They usually sell to people who are buying a malamute for all the
wrong reasons! It's the dog who pays the ultimate price--death. We
began rescuing malamutes because the majority of the mals in shelters
are good dogs who came from bad owners. They have been neglected, left
intact, never trained or simply put into a yard and ignored. We
evaluate temperament, then spend time teaching the basics of living in a
world with humans. Being an intelligent breed, the dogs quickly realize
what is expected of them.
