About Us

 KalaMals is located in the stunningly beautiful scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, just south of Roanoke outside of Blacksburg Va . The Love for Alaskan Malamutes started when we bought our first in 1989. We enjoyed her so much we soon found ourselves with four more malamute pets through rescue. We were a AMAL foster home for Alaskan Malamutes for 8 years fostering , training and rehoming over 30 mals from 1990 - 1998. By 1998 we still had our four pet alaskan malamutes when we purchased our first " show " Alaskan Malamute 

 We have finished  26  owner handled champions.  We are always looking to improve our line, I believe that a breeder should focus first on the health, structure, and temperament of a dog and for this reason, ONLY dogs that are physically healthy and mentally sound will be bred at KalaMals. We take pride in each and every litter we produce. It is unfair for me to breed carelessly--without regard for health issues--and to have the pet buyer bear the burden of a dog with a serious health problem if it could have knowingly been avoided. I will only breed a dog that I would want to have as a pet under my own roof. We love and respect this breed as they are part of our family and we want our puppies to go to people that feel the same way. Pups are born in the house where we spend a lot of time socializing and preparing them to go onto live a wonderfully healthy life with their new owners. 

 I also believe that dogs that are being bred should be evaluated by a neutral/objective third party--and that means that they should be shown and judged. Dog shows are the tool that a breeder has to have a knowledgeable third party critique her breeding stock. I will not breed just to sell puppies or just because I have a waiting list. I will only breed if I believe that the choice I made will produce a puppy that is better than what I am starting with .  If you are interested in a puppy from a future KalaMals breeding or a young adults if available please visit our puppy page to view our terms and policies, as well as any possibly available placements.  Thank you for stopping by, Eric and Julie Kalamaja
