Hudson's Malamutes - Frequently Asked Questions

34. I live in a very hot climate will my malamute have a problem living in such hot temperatures?

Your dog needs to be maintained just as a young child should be. If it is to hot for your child then it is to hot for your dog.

I have many owners with dogs in Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Arizona, Florida and other very warm climates. They maintain their dogs temperatures properly and do not have any problems.

Just like any long haired-breed or one originating in cold climates, fresh water and shade must always be available for dogs living outside.

Alaskan Malamutes are very adaptable and can survive in over 100 degree weather or in -40 degree weather. This is a very hearty adaptable breed. And their coat's thickness depends on climate. Malamutes usually have a shorter and less dense coat during the summer months. And very thick longer coats in the winter months. This is why in northern climates or colder months of the year you see thicker "fluffier" dogs. This is due to a coat that is thicker and fuller that is needed for the colder, harsher climates. Many malamutes love to be outside in the winter.

In the summer you can find most malamutes' favorite spot is inside on an A/C vent just having a snooze waiting for the temperature to drop so they can go out and play when the temperatures cool down for the day.

Trimming is not needed and I do not recommend clipping the entire coat for the summer. It takes sometimes two years for a full coat to come back after a dog has been shaved. If extreme temperatures are predicted and you must shave your dog, only shave its undercarriage (belly,groin, chest) area. This will allow the dog to release body heat on the cool ground and floor. I only do this in extreme temperatures and find this very effective on my extremely long coated Malamutes.

Not to us, O Lord, but to you goes all the glory for your unfailing love and faithfulness.
