http://www.wayeh.com/wayeh/faq-aggression.htm This breeder of 10 generation sled champions claims that dog aggression is a trait of the breed, yet no malamute that I've encountered have ever displayed unwarranted aggression or dominance!!. The breed standard does not state any innate problems with aggression towards other dogs. I want to put up a poll: is your malamute dominant/borderline agressive towards other dogs. And hear from owners here. Most mals I know are just playful and as harmless as an average Golden Retriever.
