Akbash Dog Q&A
i truly wouldn't recommend it. I have a malamute and live in upstate New York where it snows into May. He could lay buried in the snow for hours and be happy and warm, but come summer, we have to keep him inside out of the sun in the A/C for most of the day. They are just not meant to be in tropical climates or really any climate where snow is not a regular part of their lives. It only makes them suffer and shortens their life span. They are an amazing breed, and wonderful companions, but the dogs are amazing as a snow breed meant for cold climates where outdoor snowy activities are a part of their routine.
