Alaskan Malamutes (and other Arctic working breeds) are both family companions and used in their traditional roles of working and sporting dogs. Sleds are still pulled for freighting, racing, or recreation... and in warmer climates a cart can be substituted for a sled! Skiers are pulled by the dogs while "skijoring". Some urban owners rollerskate or rollerblade with their Malamutes. Other Mals are used as packdogs during hiking trips with their human companions. Mals have also been used in "search and rescue" and as "therapy" dogs. As a group, the Northern Breeds are intelligent, friendly and generally adaptable to many different activities.
