Country of Origin: Alaska.
Coat: Coat is double-layered and length can either be long or short. Every color and combination are acceptable, with the exception of all-white.
Character: The Alaskan Klee Kai is known for being reserved around strangers. Socialization is vital early-on in order to ensure that this dog is comfortable around people and other dogs.
Temperament: Unlike the Siberian Husky upon which it is based, the Alaskan Klee Kai was bred as a companion dog.
Care: Occasional grooming with a brush and comb is required, particularly when the dog is shedding. Avoid the temptation to shave the coat, as its undercoat is required to keep the dog cooled in the summer and to protect its skin from harmful UV radiation.
Training: The Alaskan Klee Kai is not as independent as a Siberian Husky, so they tend to be more responsive to training. Alaskan Klee Kais have excelled at obedience training and agility competitions.
Activity: This dog demands to be involved in physical activities. If left alone to get bored, this breed can become destructive.
Alaskan Klee Kai Description : The Alaskan Klee Kai is a relatively new breed. Unlike crossbreeds such as Pomskies, whose size and weight can vary wildly, this breed is a small to small-medium dog who does not inherit unwanted behavioral characteristics of Pomeranians or Huskies. As it is a recent development and has a great amount of genetic variety, this breed is not known to be predisposed to any major hereditary health defects.
