Malamutes are funny breeds. They know when someone is afraid of them. Mine do the same thing with my daughter and she has not understood it and I don't think ever will. She labels my dogs as 'bad dogs.' In fact, all she would have to do is step up to the plate so to speak and take control of that situation. Malamutes more than a lot of other breeds need to know who is boss. They should not be around people who do not understand them and know how to be alpha. The typical response to a dog jumping on anyone should be stepping into THEM when you see them going to jump - and firmly and loudly saying NO - even yelling it at them - and/or the technique of putting their knee up and hitting them in the chest when they begin to jump, knocking them back. The reason a dog jumps on someone is to test them and see if they can get away with that. Sometimes it can be affection or excitement, but it should not be tolerated because if it is a small child or a frail adult, it can knock them down and hurt them of course. However, your 15-year-old daughter needs to be 'the boss' in this situation or it will never stop. My daughter (who is 40 by the way) does not 'get it' and my dogs still continue to react to her. It is just a situation where I have decided that SHE cannot be around them because she doesn't get it. A trainer can help as well giving her techniques to combat the situation. The dog just needs someone to be assertive and unafraid. If someone is afraid, any dog will sense that and respond accordingly. Also, my daughter mistakes my Max especially as 'growling' when it is in fact just his vocalizations as a malamute. He is not growling at all and wants to actually have her pay attention to him - but she doesn't like him especially and is totally freaked by him - and he reacts accordingly. Sometimes, we simply cannot make people 'get' our dogs, too and that is very difficult. Again, working with a trainer can be the solution. My daughter refuses to do that so again, I just do not let the 2 of them interact but it is my choice. I keep my dogs outside when she is here or in their kennel. Sometimes that is not possible so again, depending on your situation, would recommend you try and problem solve it with someone.
