Often confused with Siberian Huskies, the Alaskan Malamutes are one of the oldest Arctic sled dogs. They are large in size, extremely well-built and they possess exceptional stamina and agility. These dogs have a wolf-like appearance and they are highly loving and caring towards their family members and loved ones.

Also, these pooches are a bit pricey to bring home and then maintain properly.

Factors Affecting the Alaskan Malamute Price in India

Now there are various factors that can affect the original Alaskan Malamute price in India. These factors are as follows:

Type

There are three different price categories for an Alaskan Malamute dog (in India): Basic, KCI Registered and Show Quality.

  • Basic category includes all those dogs and puppies that are not registered to any kennel club including KCI. A basic Alaskan Malamute puppy can cost anywhere around ₹65,000.
  • KCI is short for Kennel Club of India and if a dog belongs to KCI Registered category, then it means you will get a canine whose quality is up to the mark. You will also be able to participate in KCI dog shows if your canine is registered and also you will get a KCI registration certificate.
  • A Show Quality dog means that the canine is closest to the ideal as mentioned in the Breed Standards. If you are not planning to participate in dog shows with your pooch, then it does not matter all that much whether you buy a Show Quality dog or a normal Pet Quality one.

Physical Attributes and Characteristics

Physical features such different coat colors of a canine can also influence its overall price. Alaskan Malamutes can be found in a lot of different colors – Chocolate & White, Gray & White, Sable & White, Black & White, Red & White and Seal & White and depending upon the rarity of the color, the overall price of these canine may vary.

Age & Gender

Puppies are generally sold at a higher price as compared to older or fully grown pooches. Also, female canines, sometimes, cost a bit less when compared to the male dogs. And this is how age and gender of a dog influence its overall cost.

Pure or Mix Breed

The cost of a purebred Alaskan Malamute is higher than the mixed-breed as there are lesser chances for a purebred puppy to develop hereditary health problems as compared to the one that is mixed-breed.

Availability and Location

If a canine is not very easily available at a particular location, then its price can go a bit higher. Also, pooches that you get from faraway locations also generally cost a bit more as several extra charges (such as traveling et cetera) are also added on to the original price of the canine.

Reputed Breeder

Canines that you get from a reputed, popular and well-known breeder may also cost a bit more as compared to getting them from any random unreliable breeder. But price of a pooch shouldn’t matter to you if you are getting it from a trustworthy place.

Miscellaneous Factors

  • Champion Bloodline: If a dog belongs to a champion bloodline, meaning any of its predecessors (forefathers) were given the title of Champion in an official dog event, then its price can also go fairly high.
  • Microchip: The price of a dog can also increase if it has been microchipped by the KCI. The extremely small pet microchip helps in providing a permanent ID for your pet.
