Character


Aluskies are quiet but they are very outgoing and loving to people especially to children. They are very laid back and extremely good with other dogs and cats. They can be stubborn, and may become destructive when left alone. They like to chew when bored. They are loyal and they love to run and interact with their owners. It's a good idea to start socializing them with humans and other dogs from birth to make sure they have a pleasant disposition. They are loyal and their character is a mix between the Husky and Malamute. Further research into those breeds will help explain possible mixes of temperament.

Dog Training!

If you're having problems training your dog or getting control, you should read our review of DogProblems.com. Adam will do whatever it takes to help you whip your dog into shape. I've used them to help with my Great Dane as well as help friends train their dogs. It's the first place I go to help answer users Questions. Many training issues are too extensive to answer in this forum, which is why I refer a lot of the load to his site. Update: I've been using and recommending DogProblems for three years now. I, as well as my users, value the techniques we've learned. I get weekly emails from users who have become better owners from the information they received.
