Beam me upThe first thing you learn with a new Malamute is they require a lot of toys.

A bored dog is an unhappy dog that may decide peeling wallpaper or gutting the sofa is fun, since a bored dog is also a destructive dog. We've found Malamutes love all kinds of toys, but they must be durable, safe and for some dogs, non-toxic without small parts. There are many commercial products that are made especially for large dogs that are safe, durable and fun! However, nothing is completely indestuctable to a determined Malamute. Shadow managed to "kill"a guaranteed indestructible ball by continuously popping it in his

A friend's dog ATE a kong (a very hard, large rubbery chew toy) that had to be surgically removed from his stomach. Most every Malamute owner will have a funny story about something their dog has eaten! Fortunately, because our dogs are raised with toys from a very young age they usually (notice I said USUALLY) don't eat the parts of things they destroy. Malamutes love toys they can pretend to hunt, kill and gut. Toys that squeek and have stuffing to pull out and spread around the house are favorites! Needless to say, most pet toys rarely last very long so there is no sense in buying expensive ones unless they are particularly durable.

I scour garage sales for baby-safe squeekies and stuffed animals they can destroy in a matter of minutes, but Ahhhh those few minutes! These do not have the small metal squeekers or swallowable eyes and noses, so unless your Malamute will eat the stuffing or plastic shreds, are pretty safe. For the potential new Malamute owner, here is our gallery "lifetimes").

The Kong Quest lasted all of 3 minutes for Max....
I would NOT recommend this for a malamute since the chunks they can break off are very dangerous if swallowed.
It's sort of a softer, rubbery toy that lets you put treats in the holes. Later I learned it has been recalled.
