The ancestors of Malamutes arrived in the Americas around 4,000 years ago with Paleo-Eskimo people who crossed the land bridges of the Bering Strait.

The Mahlemuit Inupiaq people are credited with breeding and developing the releatives of Alaskan Malamutes around 1,000 years ago.

Moving forward to the 19th and 20th century, Alaskan Malamutes played a key role in the Gold Rush due to their athletic ability.

Although their numbers were badly hit due to World War II, the three different strains of Alaskan Malamutes were reunited to trigger a resurgence.’

Life With Malamutes told hellobark.com:

They are very smart and stubborn. If I ask for them to do something like sit or stay, they’ll literally weigh up the reward I’m offering and choose whether to do it or not. They’re very intelligent and will decide for themselves.

Tydus (@trez_and_tydus) told hellobark.com:

We weren’t 100% sure what to expect as we have never owned a Malamute before. In fact, Tydus was our first dog. We were in for a ride. The puppy stage which lasted for about seven months was a roller-coaster ride for us. We had torn pants, stolen socks – we couldn’t even pick him up as he hated it and would squiggle his way out like a little worm. But it’s a joy owning a Malamute – or rather being owned by one! They really are a special breed. They do require a lot of exercise and mental stimulation to keep them away from trouble. So it is a demanding yet satisfying experience.
