How many species of Alaska dog are there? How many kind of the Alaska Dog line is now divided? In today’s article, we learn about the Alaska dogs and how many kinds of Alaska dogs at all? And features of each type?
Inevitably, Alaska dog owners in Vietnam rarely pay attention to this and still think that Alaska dog is merely Alaska dog, and it has only one single type. But in this breed, they are divided into 3 types, basic species are Hinman, M’Loot and Kotzebue.
Alaska Hinman (or Hinman-Irwin) Strain
This type consists of a few ones, but also an important contribution to the quality of the Alaskan Malamute. Hinman dogs been bred with M’Loot dogs have created one of the best representatives of The malamute. Hinman dogs, along with M’Loot and Kotzebue, have contributed significantly in creating “Husky-Pak” dogs, and created many champions as well as lineage for Alaskan Malamute.
Paul Voelker is the creator of the Alaska Dog M’Loot type that has expressed very strongly today in many races, including the Silver Sled Kennels commonly found in most of the Malamute in Midwest area. Although be interested in Alaskan Malamute, Voelker also created a different style of Malamute which did not require AKC recognition.
Kotzebue Alaska type originated by Arthur Walden’s dogs, after being moved for Milton and Eva to look after when Mr. Walden went to Antarctic. Chinook dog camp of Selleys in Wonalancet, New Hampshire has been the most famous center of training sled dogs of America. This camp trained and provided dogs for the Byrd expedition and expedition of the Air America (which were all going to Antarctica). The Seeley also had great contribution in lobbying the AKC (American Dogs Club) to recognize Alaskan Malamute dogs.
The above are three basic breeds of Alaska dogs you can refer to, but no matter what type, Alaska dogs always follow certain standards and they are only different almost a little bit about some of the characteristics of the hair color and eye color.
