Feeding your puppy
* Alaskan Malamute puppies should be fed puppy food for the first 5 months of age then switched to adult food. by
no later then 6 months  old .
You will need to feed your puppy 3 times per day until is 6 months of age , then twice a
day until one year old. At a year old, you can feed him/her once a day. Make sure your pup has fresh water at all
times. We recommend  at 5-6 months of age to take your puppy off puppy food and putting them on adult food with
a lower protein level in it. Your puppy will still just get as big but more in a healthier way instead of putting all that
weight on so fast which can cause bone problems if their gaining weight so fat on the bones before the growth
plates are closed. And keep your puppy on the NuVet Vitamins.

Take your puppy out to the bathroom within 15 minutes of feeding to start potty training.  If you want to change their
feed, you should do it slowly over 10 days. Mix a little more of the new food with the old food each day. You should
be switched to the new food by the 10th day. If you do not switch them over slowly, you will mess up their digestive
system and they will develop diarrhea and could dehydrate. But we do recommend them staying on the food they
leave here on for the first 6 months. We feed our puppies Exclusive or taste of the wild food or blue wilderness  food
these are the best puppy/dog food out their right now. But you need to look at the back of the bags and the different
flavors have different protein levels in them make sure your getting one with a lower protein level.  These foods do  
cost a little more but its the best dog foods we have found.

We feed our Puppies all natural grain free food and it does  cost a little more but its the best
dog foods out their! Well worth the money! If you visit our
link page you can find the links to
the grain free foods link to their web pages so you can read about them.I also cook boiled  
boneless chicken and brown rice for our puppies.


Dogs have a hard time to digest white rice but they can digest brown rice so if you make this
for your dogs please use brown rice.

Type of foods
We never recommend canned food or the semi-moist fake meat burgers. Canned foods are typically higher in
calories and fat and are usually 80 to 83 per cent water.  The semi-moist foods are about 55% water and use
high salt or sugar
levels for preservation. Puppies don't need the salt and sugar. Dry foods are only 9 to 11 percent water and are
made of the same quality ingredients as the other types. They are more economical, easier to use and better for
your dog. Dogs on dry foods typically have fewer intestinal upsets. They have fewer problems with unwanted
weight gain. We see no advantage as far as hair coat or skin quality is concerned with those on canned foods.
Probably the most important
advantage of using dry foods and feeding them dry is that the abrasive action of eating them is good for the
dog's teeth and gums. Dog's that constantly eat any of the softened foods always have more dental problems
ranging from tarter and
plaque build up, abscesses, tooth loss and gum disease. Any or all of these cause bad breath. Dry food is the
only food choice that helps control plaque while it is being eaten. It's also the only food that helps satisfy your
puppy's need to chew. Feeding your puppies  from the table teaches them the bad habit of begging and may
make house training more difficult for you.

Table scraps
should never account for more than 10% of your mature dog's diet. No chocolate, no bones unless their raw
and not cooked. bones cooked can  that splinter easily, and keep your dog away from high-fat,greasy foods.

Cow's milk
We consider milk just another table scrap. Cow's milk has the sugar lactose. Dogs do not have the enzyme
lactase that is necessary to digest it. That is why they often develop diarrhea or softer stools when given it. Most
humans produce this
digestive enzyme. Those that don't are said to suffer from milk intolerances or allergies. When you see milk or
milk by-products listed as ingredients in pet foods, lactose bacteria have been used to break down the sugar
into easier digestible forms. Dogs do not need fresh milk. Feeding schedule * You should not leave food out for
the puppy so that it can eat it whenever it wants. You need to be there for the feedings because you want the
puppy and its entire body on a set schedule. This is best accomplished by feeding the pup what it will eat at
specific times on a specific schedule.
* Puppies under six months of age should be fed three times daily; between six and twelve months old, two
times daily; and once per day after twelve months of age. * Puppies maturing into adults will naturally decrease
the number of feedings per day on their own. * By feeding on a set schedule, the dog will then go to the
bathroom on a more set
schedule and make house training easier and faster. Make it a habit to give the puppy some quiet time after the
meal. Don't let the children romp and play with it for the first hour to an hour and a half after eating.
This can lead to some stomach upsets that can sometimes be very serious. The puppy will probably need to go
to the bathroom, however. Amounts  to feed Place an ample amount of food down for them and then after 10
to 15 minutes it is
picked up. You'll soon learn to judge how much they need and, depending on how fast they clean it up, when
they need more. Remember to have water available with or immediately following the meal. The growth rates
and appetites of young animals on a good quality food are primarily dictated by their genetics. Don't try to
make your dog grow faster than it should or into something it isn't. This will only cause problems. Artificially
accelerated growth leads to bone and joint disorders. Feed them the amounts they want and let their bodies
dictate their needs.


Treats:
Treats should never account for more than 10% of your puppy's caloric intake Your puppy's food is its sole
source for the nutrition it needs so don't "fill up" your puppy on treats before meal time. Liver products are
great treats because they provide nutrients your puppy is unlikely to obtain from any other food source. Hard
chew treats keep your puppy entertained and improve dental health by exercising the gums and scraping the
teeth. It also satisfies your teething pup's
need to chew. Treats can be used during training to reward good behavior, but be careful not to overdo it.

Rawhide bones:
Pet owners have a lot of questions about rawhide. Whether or not chewing rawhide is healthy for puppies. The
chewing of rawhide has the beneficial effect of removing plaque from the animals' teeth and keeping them
cleaner. This is significant because periodontal disease is a real problem in many adult dogs. It will not only
satisfy your pet's natural urge to chew, it will also help keep him healthy. Water Puppies may seem to drink
large quantities of water. They need it and it cannot be deprived of it. A dog can starve and lose almost all of its
body fat and half of it protein mass (muscle) and still survive. However, if this dog loses 15% of its body water,
it will die. Water is the most important nutrient of all. For dogs of any age that eat dry food, water will be
needed to rehydrate it in their stomachs for digestion. Puppies also need more water per pound than adults do
because they are growing. Growth comes through very active metabolism at the cellular level. These processes
produce many wastes and by-products that are excreted into the blood. It requires plenty of water to carry
these substances to and be flushed through the kidneys. It is okay to schedule when your puppy drinks, but on
a daily basis you must allow them to consume what they want and need. Providing fresh water is important.
This greatly reduces the risk of disease and therefore keeps your pet happy and healthy.


Feeding your adult malamute
A Tate of the wild  food will contain all the nutritional needs of the dog, possibly with the exception of fats.
Polyunsaturated fats (one tablespoon) will supplement this requirement. If changing brands of dog food, do
not suddenly substitute with the new food. Instead, gradually add increasing amounts of the new food with the
old until the change is complete. Table scraps are not a suitable diet and should not be used to constitute a
whole meal, though they may be added in small amounts, approximately 10%, to the dog's dinner. The amount
of food each dog requires is determined by size, age, and level
of activity. Young puppies are usually fed three times a day, while an adult needs only one meal a day. Despite
their size, an adult Malamute has modest dietary needs. * Its a good idea to feed your Malamute two small
meals to lessen the chance of bloat, a tragedy which can affect all large, deep chested breeds. Provide plenty of
fresh water at all times, especially in warm weather, and remember to clean all food and water bowls daily. But
again make sure its a lower protein level of taste of the wild or what ever food your using.


Why to feed your puppy large breed puppy food:

Simply for the fact that Alaskan Malamutes are LARGE dogs, I highly recommend a
premium large breed puppy food for at least the puppies' first year to ensure that the
puppies' bones develop at a rate proportionate to their weight. Or a lower protein puppy food.

NOTE: The Small Breed is much higher in protein and a puppy will gain weight more
quickly, however, a puppy's "infrastructure" must be able to support its weight. So
please only feed your puppy large breed puppy food for the first year.   

Dog chew  toys
Puppies chew when they are teething or bored and older dogs chew mostly out of boredom.
Kongs
It is a bounce toy, that you can fill with you dog's favorite treat, biscuits, peanut butter, cheese, etc., and it will
give your dog hours of chewing fun and exercise. Also while your dog tries to get all the goodies you have
stuffed into his Kong. Kongs are made of natural, puncture resistant, Ultraflex rubber and come in all sizes to
accommodate all dogs. Stuffed Kongs are a great diversion for many puppies when you leave them alone for
awhile. Usually they get pretty tired and fall
asleep after using all their energy to get the "stuff" out.
Nylabones
Nylabones are great for dogs especially when your puppy is teething. They come in all sizes and flavors and last
a long time.
Rawhide
Checking with your vet is always a good idea. Pressed rawhide sticks dissolve quickly in their stomachs.
Braided rope toys
Braided rope toys can help your puppy through his chewing phase. A word of warning though, don't let your
dog eat the rope. It could be harmful to your puppy The rope can get twisted in your dogs intestines which you
can imagine would not be pleasant. Pig ears and Calf hoovesare okay occasionally but once again we
recommend you ask your vet.



Foods Which are Toxic

Walnuts- Walnuts are considered a very healthy food for humans, however walnuts
(amongst many other kinds of nuts) can have harmful side effects on dogs. Because of their
high phosphorous content, walnuts can potentially give your dog bladder stones.


Onions & garlic- It’s not like your dog will enjoy eating those stinky things anyways, but you
should definitely avoid feeding your dog onions. Onions, especially raw ones, are known to
cause hemolytic anemia in dogs. For those of you who don’t have a MD, hemolytic anemia is
where red blood cells are removed and destroyed from toxic compounds.


Potatoes- Poisoning from potatoes have been known to occur for both humans and dogs. This
is from the Solanum alkaloid that is found in green sprouts and green potato plants.
However, this doesn’t mean that all forms of potatoes are bad for your dog. Mashed and
cooked potatoes are actually quite nutritious and healthy for your dog, but stay away from
raw uncooked potatoes.

Turkey Skin- When Thanksgiving rolls around, the last thing you want to do is feed your dog
leftover turkey. Turkey Skin has been found to cause acute Pancreaitis in dogs. Pancreaitis
is where the pancreas becomes inflamed and can lead to bleeding in the gland, tissue
damage and infections.

Sugarless Candy- Candy may be a great treat for kids, but they are definitively a big no-no
for dogs. Some candies contain a compound called xylithol which can lead to liver damage
and death in dogs.


Items to avoid Reasons to avoid

Alcoholic beverages
Can cause intoxication, coma, and death.

Baby food Can contain onion powder, which can be toxic to dogs. (Please see onion below.)
Can also result in nutritional deficiencies, if fed in large amounts.

Bones from fish, poultry, or other meat sources Can cause obstruction or laceration of the
digestive system.

Cat food Generally too high in protein and fats.

Chocolate, coffee, tea, and other caffeine Contain caffeine, theobromine, or theophylline,
which can be toxic and affect the heart and nervous systems.

Citrus oil extracts Can cause vomiting.

Fat trimmings Can cause pancreatitis.

Grapes and raisins Contain an unknown toxin, which can damage the kidneys. There have
been no problems associated with grape seed extract.
Hops Unknown compound causes panting, increased heart rate, elevated temperature,
seizures, and death.

Human vitamin supplements containing iron Can damage the lining of the digestive system
and be toxic to the other organs including the liver and kidneys.

Large amounts of liver Can cause Vitamin A toxicity, which affects muscles and bones.

Macadamia nuts Contain an unknown toxin, which can affect the digestive and nervous
systems and muscle.

Marijuana Can depress the nervous system, cause vomiting, and changes in the heart rate.

Milk and other dairy products Some adult dogs and cats do not have sufficient amounts of
the enzyme lactase, which breaks down the lactose in milk. This can result in diarrhea.
Lactose-free milk products are available for pets.

Moldy or spoiled food, garbage Can contain multiple toxins causing vomiting and diarrhea
and can also affect other organs.

Mushrooms Can contain toxins, which may affect multiple systems in the body, cause shock,
and result in death.

Onions and garlic (raw, cooked, or powder) Contain sulfoxides and disulfides, which can
damage red blood cells and cause anemia. Cats are more susceptible than dogs. Garlic is less
toxic than onions.

Persimmons Seeds can cause intestinal obstruction and enteritis.
Pits from peaches and plums Can cause obstruction of the digestive tract.
Potato, rhubarb, and tomato leaves; potato and tomato stems Contain oxalates, which can
affect the digestive, nervous, and urinary systems. This is more of a problem in livestock.

Raw eggs Contain an enzyme called avidin, which decreases the absorption of biotin (a B
vitamin). This can lead to skin and hair coat problems. Raw eggs may also contain
Salmonella.

Raw fish Can result in a thiamine (a B vitamin) deficiency leading to loss of appetite,
seizures, and in severe cases, death. More common if raw fish is fed regularly.

Salt If eaten in large quantities it may lead to electrolyte imbalances.
String Can become trapped in the digestive system; called a "string foreign body."

Sugary foods Can lead to obesity, dental problems, and possibly diabetes mellitus.

Table scraps (in large amounts) Table scraps are not nutritionally balanced. They should
never be more than 10% of the diet. Fat should be trimmed from meat; bones should not be
fed.

Tobacco Contains nicotine, which affects the digestive and nervous systems. Can result in
rapid heart beat, collapse, coma, and death.

Yeast dough Can expand and produce gas in the digestive system, causing pain and possible
rupture of the stomach or intestines.

Grooming your malamute
A  malamute doesn't need a bath very often. Baths can have a drying effect on the skin and
soften the coat if given too often. If the dog is not throughly dried - dampness against the
skin can cause hotspots. Malamute fur is very dirt resistant, and even if they get muddy, by
the time they dry it will often flake off so that the dog looks just fine. Malamutes also tend to
keep themselves clean by grooming themselves like a cat. When they eat something greasy
or messy it's common to see them liking and cleaning their paws afterward. Malamutes use
the front dew claw like a thumb, so I suppose it's no different than when we wash our hands
after eating something messy! I prefer to give baths every 1-3 1/2  months but they can go as
long as 6 months or more between baths and look just fine unless you have a persistent
digger!. I put a long hose on the Handheld Shower head , close the doors to prevent escapes .  
(Expect everything to get soaked!)  Some like it and some do not, but they all get their treat
afterward so are pretty good about it they like the treats. It's also important to give young
puppies baths more often. First, because puppy fur is not as soil-resistant, second because
they will be much better about bathing if they have had regular baths from a young age. If
you treat afterwards, are patient, and make it fun and part of a daily routine, your dog will
LOVE being groomed! And will look forward to the next time. A daily brushing is best or, at
the very least, a twice weekly brushing. Malamutes do shed twice a year fall and spring. So
they will need a lot of brushing at that time. If your malamute has long hair he or she will
need to be brushed a little more often so their hair does not matt.
Please start brushing ,bathing and trimming the malamutes nails and brushing their teeth
when they are puppies so they will be use to getting this done and will have no problem with
doing so. And it will be a lot easier on you and your malamute.

Getting ready for Bath time:
During major shedding, it's best if you take the time to thoroughly comb and brush the dead
hair out BEFORE bathing otherwise it will mat. Use the rake first, then the poodle comb,
then the slicker to remove any remaining loose undercoat. Keep a large waste basket handy
as you won't believe how quickly it will fill up. Work down from the neck, all the way to the
tail make sure you get all that dead hair out before bathing. Then bathe the dog in medium-
hot water and blow dry, combing out the remaining dead coat. Always use warm water.
Place a non-skid rubber mat in the tub if slippery.
Lets remember grooming does not stop at bathing and brushing lets not forget about the
teeth and nails and ears.
__________________________________________________________

Teething:-

Teething pups try to bite everything(fingers shoes ), and those teeth are sharp as Needles.
Puppies bite because they are teething just as any breed of puppy does. They are not
biting  because they are aggressive . Be firm tell them no take away what every they are
chewing on  that you do not want them to be chewing on. Give them something they are
aloud to chew (bone,toys ). They will understand that they are not aloud to chew on and
what they are aloud to chew on. But it will take time.

BONES,AND TOYS WILL HELP WITH THIS.


Brushing Teeth:-

One thing we do is brush are mals teeth once a week at our kennel.,  I highly recommend it.  
Use a toothpaste formulated for dogs, since people toothpaste can upset stomachs if
swallowed. (besides dog toothpaste usually has a meat flavor and you'll get more
cooperation). Instead of brushing every day, we give lots of large knuckle bones, rawhides
.(you can buy the tooth past at your vet they also sell it at walmart)

______________________________________________________-___________

We also have to remember the nails

Nails:
We like to our malamutes  at least once a month. With young puppies, & untrained dogs,
aim for doing a few nails at a time. See where the quick is and do not cut into it. If the nail
bleeds, apply Kwik stop. You may need a partner to hold the pup or adult while you do it. It
Give the pup or adult a treat and lots of praise.

__________________________________________________________________


We cant forget about the ears

Ears:
Ears use Otis ear cleaner or an astringent solution. Ears should be cleaned every two week
to four weeks. Squirt several drops into one ear. Massage the base. Let dog shake, then use a
cotton ball to wipe away dirt. Repeat if necessary.

1 8 oz. can salmon with juice
1/2 cup chopped parsley
3 eggs, shells included
1/2 cup sesame seeds ground up in coffee grinder
1/2 cup flax seeds ground up in coffee grinder
2-3 cups potato flour
Put these ingredients into a food processor, mix VERY WELL. Pour potato flour through the opening while the
motor is running. I can't tell you exactly how much, but I would guess about 2-3 cups. When the dough forms, like
a pie curst, and rolls into a ball it is ready to take out.

Dump this mess onto potato floured counter or board. Knead more flour into this and when it is a rolled out
cookie consistency, it is ready to roll out into about 14 inch thick. I use a pizza cutter to roll our long strips and
then cut crosswise to make small squares . If you want fancy you may use a cookie cutter. Bake on cookie
sheets, sprayed Pam or line the sheet with parchment paper. I put in as many as will fit. Usually two whole cookie
sheets suffices. I bake this in a 375º oven for 20 min. Turn and rotate the cookie sheets and bake about 10 more
minutes. You can make them as soft or as hard as you want.


Lamb & Rice -
1lb ground lamb (beef if you wish)
1 2 cups brown rice
2 stalks Broccoli
2 or 3 medium potatoes
3 medium carrots
4 cloves garlic
1 sheet kombi, Sea Kelp (optional)

Brown lamb in a fry pan. After it gets going, put on the chopped garlic to brown. Boil water, put about 4-5 cups into
a crock pot, so it is already hot while you are fixing the rest of the ingredients. Add cubed potatoes to the fry pan.
Cut broccoli and add this to the crock. Put the rest of the works in the pot, add enough hot water to cover. Add
pepper to taste. Throw in 1/2 cup brown rice and mix.
