If you plan to become an Alaskan Malamute owner, you will be delighted know these incredibly beautiful dogs are highly intelligent. They also tend to be extremely playful just like a puppy practically until the day they pass over the rainbow bridge. As you can imagine, though, it takes a lot of hard work to keep them well-groomed. Your best bet is to start getting your Mal used to being handled and groomed from a very early age when he is most likely to accept it without too much of a fuss.
Keep in mind Malamutes are "seasonal shedders'' in that twice a year they blow out their coats and the rest of the time is spent growing it back. But, the more you stay on top of grooming your pup, the easier it will become. However, like most dogs, your Mal is not likely to be too happy with being groomed at first, take your time and make the whole process fun for both of you.
Despite their size and seemingly endless energy (or maybe because of it), Alaskan Malamutes can be challenging to groom. Take your time and make it relaxing and fun for both of you. Don't forget to keep a large supply of your pup's favorite treats on hand to use as rewards. Make it fun for everyone and before you know it your pup will soon master this skill.
