Choosing the Best Dog Food for an Alaskan Malamute with a Sensitive Stomach

Alaskan Malamutes are substantial and strong, lending them to the often cruel and always cold environment of the Arctic tundra. This hardy dog was bred and used extensively to haul heavy freight long distances, bringing in much-needed supplies to Inupiat villages as well as food they for the hunted for their Mahlemiut tribes like walruses, seals, and bears. Vegetation was scarce and impossible to cultivate in this region, and in turn their diet likely consisted mostly of raw meat. Presumably, there was an absence of proper nutrients that would appease a dog with a sensitive stomach during this time. Providing your Alaskan Malamute with a balanced blend of healthy, fresh ingredients is easier than ever with Spot & Tango. We combined the quality and taste of homemade recipes with the expertise of animal nutritionists and food scientists to offer a revolutionary dog food that can soothe and settle your breed’s sensitive stomach.

Presently, there are Alaskan Malamutes that are still being used as sled dogs for work, continuing to aid humans in personal travel or hauling heavy freight. They are also seen being used recreationally for things like mushing — a term that encompasses a wide array of sports such as racing, carting, and skijoring, an activity which involves a dog pulling a human on skis. Most Alaskan Malamutes are kept as pets, though, and rightfully so. Mighty as they may seem, this dog is a big but lovable breed. They have been known to truly crave attention from humans, and are often so friendly that they will go off with just about anyone.

Alaskan Malamutes are known to roam and enjoy walking long distances, a harking to their early days pulling heavy sleds full of food and supplies across the bitter cold Norton Sound region. These dogs are known to be avid diggers, digging deep holes in the ground to avoid blizzards or keep cool during hot Alaskan summers. This instinctual behavior isn’t one you can train out of an Alaskan Malamute, so it’s best if you have a designated spot for them to dig. Unlike some other large dogs, this breed is fairly quiet and is seldom heard barking. Instead, they will vocalize with a “woo woo” sound that can even sound like they’re talking. Given these traits, a well-trained dog of this breed would certainly make a great family dog and an exemplary house pet as they are nimble around furniture and small items.
