Breeding Goals

Baby Enda

"The Malamute is too fine and distinguished a breed to be changed into anything but what centuries of adaptability to its environment has produced. Our efforts should be to breed not only beautiful Malamutes, but as good a specimen physically as were originally found in Alaska. It isn't a question of breeding a better Malamute, but as good a Malamute." - Natalie Norris, legendary breeder and AMCA founder 

 

in short, my goal is to produce healthy, well-balanced, structurally-correct dogs that have outstanding temperaments.

My intent is to continually produce a strong foundation of  AKC Alaskan Malamutes for my breeding program who have great temperaments and the ability to compete in conformation, agility, obedience, tracking, and working as well as being just great family companions, all the while paying close attention to reducing Health Problems known to Alaskan Malamutes.  It is a genetic juggling act, but I believe it can be done with careful decisions by means of meticulous research, thorough records, and a clear vision.  

 All of my breeding stock and puppies are registered with the AKC (American Kennel Club) and have a CHIC (Canine Health Information Center) number, meaning they have passed their health screenings and are certified through the OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) at appropriate ages for: Cardiac, Eyes (yearly eye exams), Hips, Elbows, and Thyroid.

I WILL BE AS TRANSPARENT AS POSSIBLE about the health of all dogs that are bred through me via accessible, thorough, and accurate records.
– I believe that the more information that is made available – no matter if it is positive or negative — the more other breeders can use that information to improve their own lines.
– Prospective dog owners can make an informed decision about purchasing a quality Wild Night Alaskan Malamute.
