The best way is to involve yourself with a good trainer. Someone who definitely understands malamute mentality as they quickly can become overly aggressive or they can tend to think THEY are the alpha if not properly trained. You do not have to be mean or powerful with them - you just have to be totally consistent. With mine, the best way to train them has been with rewards - food or praise or anything that makes them happy. If they are doing what I want them to do, they get rewarded - if not, they do not. We are always consistent with them and do not put them into situations where they can fail. Sometimes that is hard - like with other dogs or kids even. You have to do the work with them as they are very bright dogs and can easily become bored. Again, I sound like a broken record, but get with a GOOD trainer and you will all be happy and healthy!
