    I like both. But damn, those are some high energy dogs. My friend had a husky back in high school.

    yeah, only one. icon_cry.gif

    what's wrong with malamutes? they seem better than huskies. since you sled with them, is it true that both dogs can't handle warm climates? icon_sad.gif would hate having to move to a cold area in order to keep my malamute or husky alive.

    heard that they bark a lot too but if that's the case, they seem like they can be an alarm clock.

    They bark/howl at anything and everything. Also, they're very ambitious. My friend's husky tried to go after a skunk once. You can guess what happened. icon_lol.gif

    i have a husky (picture on profile), and he's the best dog ever. Sadly though, he's super quiet.. doesn't bark or howl or speak like a typical husky. I even try to get him to do so, and its rare that he will howl/growl.. otherwise.. silent.

    They do have such vibrant personalities too! best dogs in the world icon_smile.gif i've only met one malamute and well i've met a few other huskies.. so i'm biased clearly.. but huskies are amazing icon_smile.gif

    I love both but I'll go with the Siberian Huskies. icon_smile.gif

    Ironically, when I was a kid, I thought Alaskan Malamutes were huskies lol

    and that person who took the video of the husky not liking his crate is a horrible pet owner. I don't care if they were there with the dog or not, you never have a puppy in the crate with its collar on, i've had a friend who's puppy died that way, was very sad.

    They are great escape artists and total screamers coming out of anesthesia.

    I always laugh quietly at the butch guys who own these dogs because they think they are tough.icon_smile.gif

    Both are wonderful dogs. They need lots of exercise. They are both pack animals. I am sure they would pull anything they were asked to pull. Great dogs, beautiful and loyal.

    Malamute man! Huskies, when young 5months-2years, chew up everything. I have friends who've had them. Full of energy. I'm talking 20 minutes of jogging with them in the morning and night just they wouldn't chew on the furniture hahaa. I have a malamute, Kiko. She's bigger, still has energy but not to the level a husky.

    Both breeds are damned adorable. Unless you have a LOT of time/energy to spend, the malamute might be a better choice. Even then, not the best breed of dog to leave alone all day.

    have to choose one? omg !!
    well i'll pick malamute..although i'd love to have one of both the types

    I had a malamute. Best decision ever. They're bigger than huskies though, so depending on what your living environment can facilitate.

    The wolfier the better- but you better have the space/ time to exercise them otherwise say goodbye to all of your shoes. icon_lol.gif

    Alaskan Malamutes only. And must be born in interior Alaska to be a real working dog.... not a tamed dog breed for home embellishment in the lower 48 states.

    Alaskan Malamutes are the perfect dog. you must I meant MUST live in a cold climate... they are arctic working dogs.

    neither, after having big dogs (2 weimeranars) I don't think I could do another. My next dog will be a Klee Kai.

    It's a husky that doesnt get bigger than 10 pounds

    Those are 2 highly energetic breeds . They need outside space to exercise , and cannot be left outside in hot and humid climate . Too many people are choosing a puppy because he/she looks cute , but before to fall for their cuteness , you should research the breed you are interested in , and pay attention to their strong and weak points ....

    I love malamutes, but it's too warm here for either breed to be comfortable.
