This happy Alaskan Malamute made a hole in the bathroom door so that he could be closer to his owner in this funny video.
Are Alaskan Malamutes Destructive?
Alaskan Malamutes are not typically considered to be destructive. They’re known for being gentle and non-hyperactive dogs that need a lot of exercise, but they can still be destructive if left alone for long periods of time or when there is something in the house to chew on.

Alaska is one of the most sparsely populated states in America, which means less human interference with wildlife – meaning no pets allowed outside!
This does not mean that Alaskan Malamutes are “natural born protectors” though; these breeds were originally bred as working sleds (with some crosses) and many have been used as guard dogs during mining expeditions throughout history.
Alaskan Malamutes are not destructive. They can be a little too playful for some people’s tastes, but they don’t actually harm anything other than the furniture in your home if you let them play outside.
Malamutes were originally bred to work as hunting dogs – tracking game across frozen snow without damaging its fur. This means that their natural instinct is to explore and investigate everything around them, which includes digging up plants and trees by pushing over small saplings or pulling up large ones from ground level with their teeth (a process known as “grazing”). However these days most Alaskan Malamute owners keep their pet inside because it does not do well in cold weather unless he/she has been given plenty of exercise.
The Alaskan Malamute’s natural instinct to explore will breed habits in your Malamute that may seem destructive to you – chewing on everything they can find, including furniture and even walls is natural when a dog has the urge to chew.
Are Alaskan Malamutes High Maintenance?
Alaskan Malamutes are not high maintenance, but they do need to be taken care of. The coat needs to be brushed regularly and the dog will need regular walks. Alaskan Malamutes can make excellent pets for people who have plenty of time to spend with them.
The best way to keep a Malamute happy is to provide them with plenty of exercise and stimulation. A well-exercised Malamute will be more active and contented than one that doesn’t get enough activity, so make sure you take the time each day for a walk or jog around the block (preferably with your canine friend at your side) or provide another form of physical exertion such as playing fetch or tug-of-war with an appropriate toy.
Additionally, try incorporating some mental challenges into your routine by teaching him new tricks such as “sit” or “stay”. And don’t forget about giving him plenty of love and attention, too!
Alaskan Malamute puppies are very energetic and love to play. They can be destructive if they don’t get adequate exercise or entertainment, so make sure you always have time to take him on walks or runs. Although Alaskan Malamutes do not require any grooming (you won’t even need a brush or a comb), they will need lots of attention and playtime.
Are Alaskan Malamutes Clean?
Alaskan Malamutes shed their winter coats in the springtime, making them very clean at that time; however, stray hairs can be found around your home all year long. You should brush your dog regularly with a firm bristle brush to make sure it’s taking care of this loose hair.
Malamutes are relatively clean dogs because they don’t have any doggy odor or excessive body fat, which can result in having an unpleasant smell throughout the house. They just need regular brushing and the occasional bath after rolling around outside for hours on end.
