    New to forum

    Hey everyone :)
    I am new to this forum and thought I would introduce myself, I own a 1 year old Malamute called Takoda (Koda for short)
    Joined this forum to meet some Malamute owners and give advice on Malamutes as before getting my first, I have done extensive research and living with the breed for nearly a year I've picked up a few tips and tricks :D
    I will share some pics of my boy -

    Hi & welcome
    Koda looks adorable, I’m sure has caused you some stress in his first year.
    Does he conform to the typical traits, I would love to hear about his good & bad points
    I have an Akita who is 14 months old now, I would describe him as having a “ complex “ character, is Koda the same
    I’d love to hear more about your day to day life with him

    Thank you and oh yes he does :rolleyes:

    I'll do the bad points first, destructive, when he is on his own even with plenty of chew toys. Talks back, howls and very much strong willed. Escape artist manged to escape out of the garden a few times (luckily didn't get very far and not harmed) Started to blow his coat properly this month so hair is everywhere o_O

    Good points, he is a baby, absolutely loves tummy rubs. Very friendly with children and adults of all ages. Okay with most other dogs just gets a bit too excited, something we are working on improving. Loves walks, he could walk for days if I let him :D

    I'd love to hear more about your Akita, it was a breed I was considering when researching Malamutes.

    I too am very curious about the daily life of ur Akita!:) when my husband was little his parents acquired a very beautiful male Akita. Well they had the dog for 5 days then the poor dog had to be put down :( all because the stupid neighbor kid (they lived in the city back then) kept being mean to the dog & would abuse it & of course the dog bit the kid. He bit the kid near the jugular vein. Almost died I guess. I was very upset to hear about that cuz it wasn't the dogs fault. It was the kids :mad: I think Akitas r very beautiful dogs & find their background very fascinating!:)
