Hi Saint & Mal Mom

Thanks for your advice?
When you say the fights stopped, how long did they go on for? were they nasty fights?
I have tried to get in contact with Malamute owners here in Ireland but the dogs are only just becomming popular here or the people who do have them have male and female, i have yet to speak to someone who has 2 males.
How do your 2 get on with each other now?

We have 2 male alaskan malamutes, They are 9 months old, The fight for dominance is on at the minute, one is clearly the dominant on in the pack, but their fights are really nasty, i would love to get in touch with someone who can give us advice on them, we are currently seperating them during the day while we are at work, 90% of the time they don't fight but sometimes just the way one looks at the other can spark off a fight!!
we are in the process of buying a dog run for them so we know they cannot fight during the day.
is this just a passing phase? can somebody please tell me!!!

Thanks Guys for your info! I now have another question for you, Our Malamutes are brothers and their just gone 9 months, at the minute the fight for dominence is on, Tyson is clearley the dominate one but Jordan just does not want to accept this, Jordan is growling alot of the time at Tyson and their fights are becomming more frequent and more Vicious, the both have alot of battle scars and just last week they had a big fight which resulted in Jordan getting a bad cut just under his eye. Tyson also had a small puncture wound which nearly went to his bone during one of the fights, Our Vet has suggested seperating them or getting a dog run, The do not fight all the time and most times they are the best of buddies, Is there anything that i can do to encourage Tysons dominance over Jordan or is this a bad idea.  Please Help.

I have 2 Alaskan Malamute Dogs, They are now 8 months old, they are a big part of our family, i would like to know if there is anyone who also owns malamutes and what type of collar and lead do they use while walking them.
We have bought Harnesses, but i found that the dogs pulled even more, we are currently using choke chains when we walk them as it is the only form of a collar that stops them from pulling my arms off.
