|A fenced yard is necessary , Please do not
fill this questionnaire out if you do not have a fenced in yard
nor have plans to build a fence where puppy
can safely play .
I recommended that no more than two dogs of opposite sex only ever be permitted to stay together unattended ( If you already have a male pet dog of any breed I recommend you NOT get a male pet Alaskan malamute). Malamutes only do well with the opposite sex . Do not rely on dog parks to excercise for this reason . They more then likely will not get along in group situations when older
An underground fence will not work. with an Alaskan malamute. Invisible fencing is not going to keep animals, or other threats out of your yard. If your dog runs through the barrier in persuit of a critter ( and they will ! ) , he's going to get corrected by that collar if he tries to get back. home . This fence will NOT work for an Alaskan Malamute
