The Alaskan Malamute is a large dog that looks a bit fierce, so many people will be fooled by its appearance. But, in fact, there are some similarities with Husky, both of which are fairly cuddly breeds. Alaskans come from the cold north, but they’re not nearly as smart as blondes, so many owners of Alaskan dogs wonder, at what age do Alaskan Dogs Start Training?

Generally speaking, the Golden Age of training Alaskan dogs is in their puppy years, and at one or two months, Alaskan dogs are too small to be trained accordingly, so usually at three to four months, we can train the Alaskan dog accordingly, of course, there are a few things to note during the training process, can help you get the training results of the Alaskan dog quickly.
