Best Alaskan Dog Breeds

Ιt can be difficult to determine which breeds make the best companions when there is so much information out there. In this article, we will be going over five of the top dog breeds including some info on each. We hope they help!

Siberian Husky

Amazing Facts About Siberian Huskies

Siberian Huskies are intelligent and easy to train. They require a lot of exercise, so they’re a good fit for active families who like to run or hike with their dogs. Siberian Huskies are friendly and get along well with children, but they need supervision around small children because of their high energy level. Siberian Huskies make excellent guard dogs because of their alert nature and willingness to protect you from strangers who come into your home.

Alaskan Malamute

When it comes to Alaskan Malamutes, the first thing that you’ll notice about them is just how friendly and devoted they are. They are also loyal, intelligent, playful and energetic.

Their independent nature means that they don’t need constant attention from their owners or other people in their lives. However this can lead to problems if you have a very busy schedule and don’t have time for your dog at times when he needs some love from you or someone else in his life.

If left alone for long periods of time without any attention from humans (or other dogs) then this breed could become destructive and dangerous due to boredom! If these dogs get into destructive behavior it’s best not to punish them because they may just feel even more abandoned by their owners because now there is an additional reason besides being bored as well as being unhappy with themselves as well since they know what they did wrong wasn’t right but still chose not listen anyway.”

Alaskan Klee Kai

Klee Kai

The Alaskan Klee Kai is a small, agile dog that has been bred from Siberian Huskies and Alaskan Huskies. Both breeds are sled dogs native to Alaska, so it’s no surprise that this breed is extremely well-suited for the cold environment of the Last Frontier. They have thick coats that insulate them from the elements and help keep water out of their fur during rainstorms or snowstorms. Their fluffy tails also act as another layer of protection against moisture!

Alaskans love hiking, running on trails through the woods, playing fetch at ski resorts in wintertime (and summertime!), swimming in lakes during summer months…the list goes on! If you’re active outdoors with your dog then this could be an excellent choice for you. However if your lifestyle involves being cooped up inside all day or if you live somewhere other than Alaska with short summers seasons then maybe not so much!



The Samoyed is an affectionate and playful dog who’s good with children, other pets, and people in general. The breed is known for being quiet and gentle (although it does bark occasionally), but it’s also independent enough that you don’t need to worry about the Samoyed constantly needing attention from its owner.

The Samoyed has a thick coat that needs regular brushing—but this doesn’t mean that the dog has high grooming needs. It can live in any temperature, so long as it gets enough exercise every day. That being said: if you want a dog who will help you pull your sled through snowdrifts all winter long like a real Alaskan Husky would, then the Samoyed may be right for you!

Greenland Dog

Greenland Dog

The Greenland Dog is a breed of working dog that originated in Greenland. It is believed to have existed for more than 2,000 years as a sled dog. The Greenland Dog became popular after the development of snowmobiles and all-terrain vehicles, which allowed them to be used for recreational activities such as carting, skijoring and mushing.

The American Kennel Club (AKC) recognized the breed in 2008 under their Working Group category.


If you’re ready to add a new member to your family, consider getting an Alaskan dog breed. These breeds are perfect for the cold weather and will bring joy into your home without any extra work on your part.r
