They bark very little and love everyone, so they make poor guard dogs. This high energy breed is good with kids and are trainable, but only if they feel they have a good reason to listen. Unfortunately they can also be hard to housebreak. As long as they are raised with other animals from puppyhood, they will coexist with them fine.

Generally, this is a poor choice for apartment living. They need lots of exersize and space, and need to be watched in warm weather as they can overheat. A large yard is a must have for these dogs. Native to Sibera as an all purpose dog, they were brought to Alaska by fur traders. They caught on well because of their speed in sled racing.
