ALL-AROUND ALASKAN MALAMUTE (AAAM) Requirements
Conformation: A championship title (AKC, CKC, FCI, etc.) Obedience: A Companion Dog title (equivalent or better, Agility, Rally title) Sledding : A WTD or a WLD Weightpull: A WWPD Backpacking: A WPD
Temperament: This is a BIGGIE! Written verification by a neutral party of what the dog has done in public contact. Neutral party could be a club representative if the program was a local club program… could be a school teacher or principal from a school demonstration…could be an administrator from a nursing home…someone neutral, preferably official.
A Therapy Dog certificate, TT title, CGC title, etc., are not enough to fulfill this requirement, but if the dog has them, including them certainly wouldn’t hurt! Hands-on public contact experience is also a major ingredient in this requirement. Be sure to include all examples that apply and at least a rough estimate of the time spent at each. This is important. Miscellaneous: Optional (or possibly a replace for one of the FIRST five categories). A Tracking Dog certificate, or a verification of work in Herding, Search and Rescue, etc. IMPORTANT POINT! The Temperament requirement of these titles is never to be waived or traded off. It is a definite requirement for the All-Around Alaskan Malamute, the Versatility Malamute and the Serviceable Alaskan Malamute.
