My Malamutes

My Malamutes are just that, mine.  They are not show dogs, they are not passed around from show person to show person, they are not with "handlers".  They are never passed around from breeder to breeder. 

They are my companions, my best friends, my hiking buddies, trail buddies or just hanging out in the yard buddies.  

They are not "property"

They are what I love, my passion. 

Sometimes they are clean, sometimes they are groomed and sometimes they are dirty. 

We live a fun life.  My malamute's opinions matter to me. Their smiles matter to me. 


** These are dogs I currently have plus one indoor rescue companion dog. 

I always list all of my dogs. I don't hide dogs or neglect to show what I have.  I never claim to have more or less dogs than I do. 

We also have 2 properties and sometimes we do have a few at the other properties mostly to separate males during heat cycles.

Our Malamutes at home 
This property is just over 5 acres. 
Kennel Area 
This is our kennel area. It is a soft dirt with a fairly thick layer of wood shavings mixed in the dirt. There is a screen mesh around the sides. This allows air flow but not wind. This area is covered with 100 % shade. They are protected from wind, rain, snow and sun. It also helps to keep the noise down. 
In here, we have 3 kennels that are 10ft x 10ft and 3 kennels 5ft x 10ft - 6 total
The kennel opens up into the dog yard. 
We have 3 more 10ft x 10ft kennels to the left. 
The dogs have a huge, fenced play area with a mix of sun and shade and always a mix of toys. 
The dog yard is on a slight hill so it doesn't flood or have standing water.
Additional Kennel Space


This kennel is completely secure top and bottom. It is 8ft x 8 ft with welded top and large doghouse. Inside is half pavers and half dirt with wire bottom. 
This opens up to an 8 ft by 15 ft fenced area. 
This is an addition kennel space if we need it for girls in heat or for puppies. 


When used for puppies, it is right off the deck, next to the house, out of weather. We can see the pups at all times right outside the window.
In case of any emergency, we are well prepared. 
Please know we do have emergency plans in place. We live in a high fire danger area. We live high in the Rockies of Colorado. We don't have too many natural disasters to worry about except wildfires. 
We own another property not too far away with 5 acres. We can always move our animals over to the other house/property if we ever need to. 
We have several people who can very quickly help if we ever need it. We have horse trailers available if needed as well to move the dogs. 
If that property is also in danger, we do have a third option if needed. 

Emergency Management

Benefits
The benefits to the kennels set up this way. 
My malamutes are a pack, they do not like to be separated and prefer to be able to see each other. 


Other benefits .. I never have to trim their nails. 
They do not get hot spots
They do not get elbow calluses or pressure sores
We have about 11 acres total between the two homes. 

I am not going to use Nikki for breeding, my plan is to continue to work with her in Water Dog and other events.
