The 6 Best Gifts for Alaskan Malamute Owners

For more detailed insights into each of the top 6 best gifts for Alaskan Malamute owners, keep reading below!

1. Make Your Own Paw Print Keepsake

Buy on Amazon

Gift Type: Home Decoration

One of the best gifts you can give to an Alaskan Malamute owner is a personalised gift that will stay with them forever. That’s why we love the ‘Make Your Own Paw Print Keepsake’ by Pearhead.

Using this kit, the recipient will be able to make their own hanging clay ornament with an imprint of their Malamute’s pawprint. The kit is easy to use, quick to make, and is completely safe for animals. What we particularly love is that the clay dries soft, meaning it doesn’t matter if the ornament gets dropped (or knocked off by a particularly energetic Malamute!) as it will remain intact and uncracked.

As an added bonus, the ornament can be hung anywhere but makes a particularly good Christmas tree decoration. As Alaskan Malamute owners ourselves, we would love to receive this gift and would cherish the keepsake forever.


+ A unique, personalised gift

+ Easy to use the kit

+ A keepsake memory that will last a lifetime

+ Affordable


2. ChuckIt! Kick Fetch Ball

Buy on Amazon

Gift Type: Dog Toy

As owners of Alaskan Malamutes, we love when people give us gifts that we can use with our wonderful dogs – particularly unique toys! One of our personal favourites is the ‘ChuckIt! Kick Fetch Ball’ which is perfect for energetic Malamutes that need to play a lot and regularly wear their owners out.

The toy’s unique design means it bounces in random patterns and makes it more enriching for a Malamute to play with compared to a normal ball. It is made with durable materials that can withstand hours and hours of use and is even waterproof.

We’ve tried many toys over the years and we always return to the ChuckIt! ball, and we’re certain any recipients will love it as much as we do.


+ Unique and durable toy

+ Will provide fun for both owner and dog

+ Perfect for owners of energetic Malamutes


3. Water Bottle for Dogs by DearLord

Buy on Amazon

Gift Type: Walking Accessory

Those of you familiar with Alaskan Malamutes will know that they require a lot of walking, often hours worth a day. Whilst the breed is perfectly suited to long trips out without water, being able to give them a quick drink (particularly during warmer weather) can be hugely beneficial and ensure that they do not overheat.

That’s why number 3 on our list of the best gifts for Alaskan Malamute owners is the ‘Water Bottle for Dogs’ by DearLord.

Available in four bright colours, this gift is exactly what it says on the box – a water bottle for dogs! Water is stored in the bottom compartment of the bottle and by unclipping the lock, a desired amount will be dispensed into the bowl-like top section of the bottle allowing the Malamute to easily take a drink. There is even an extra screw-on compartment at the very bottom which can be used for storing treats.

We wish we had found these bottles earlier and as many owners are yet to discover them, we think they will make the perfect gift for any Alaskan Malamute owner!


+ Perfect walking accessory for Malamute owners

+ Uncommon gift that few dog owners have

+ Incredibly useful, particularly for long walks and hikes


4. MUDBUSTER Portable Dog Paw Cleaner by Dexas

Buy on Amazon

Gift Type: Walking Accessory

Staying on the theme of practical gifts, we think the ‘MUDBUSTER Portable Dog Paw Cleaner’ is an accessory that every Alaskan Malamute owner should have. As suggested by the name, this product is designed to clean mud off of a dog’s paws, making it perfect for owners who live walk muddy trails or regularly travel in the car with their Malamutes.

What we love is how easy the MUDBUSTER is to use! Simply fill it with a little water, insert one of your Malamute’s paws, and twist it to allow the soft silicon bristles remove any dirt and debris – no shampoo required!

The outside grip makes it easy to hold, even with uncooperative Malamutes, and the inside bristles can be removed to make cleaning a breeze.

Owners that like to keep their homes particularly spotless are bound to be grateful for such a useful gift.


+ Useful for Malamute owners who regularly hike

+ Perfect for owners who like to be clean

+ A unique gift that few owners will have

+ Easy to clean


5. The Original ‘Did You Feed the Dog?’ by DYFTD

Buy on Amazon

Gift Type: Home Decoration

Looking for something that’s bound to get a few laughs from your recipient? We think ‘The Original DID YOU FEED THE DOG?’ is just the gift for you. Alaskan Malamutes are a breed that need tight restrictions when it comes to food, they will happily eat anything and everything you put in front of them and often become obese.

The ‘DID YOU FEED THE DOG?’ plague is not only a fun gift for any Malamute owner, but also incredibly helpful in ensuring their dog only eats the food they need to.

We know how difficult it can be sometimes to maintain a perfect diet for our Malamutes, particularly in multi-person homes, and there have been days where our Malamutes have been very lucky and received a double breakfast or lunch.

Using this plaque will make it easy for any owner to keep a clear record of meal times, and whilst their Malamutes may not appreciate it at first, it will certainly benefit them in the long run.


+ Funny gift that is useful

+ Perfect for Malamutes as they need to maintain a diet

+ Easy and clear to use


6. Effective ‘One Size Fits All’ Grooming Gloves by Pet Magasin

Buy on Amazon

Gift Type: Grooming Accessory

Alaskan Malamutes are notorious shedders. During coat blowing season, it can seem like a miracle that they have any hair remaining!

As a result, owners of Alaskan Malamutes are guaranteed to appreciate any gifts that can make gruelling grooming sessions a breeze.

We personally love the Effective Grooming Gloves by Pet Magasin which act as wearable brushes. The advantage of using grooming gloves is that the flexible palms allow the wearer to groom more difficult and harder to reach areas.

Grooming gloves also make grooming sessions more enjoyable for the Alaskan Malamute as they will feel as though they are simply receiving more love and attention from their owner.

Whilst these gloves are unlikely to replace a Malamute owner’s go-to grooming tools, they will certainly make everyday brushing a more enjoyable experience for both the owner and Malamute.

+ Useful gift for owners

+ Makes grooming sessions a breeze

+ One size fits all
