Anatolian Shepherds are loyal, hardy and independent. They're stubborn dogs; however, and professional obedience training is highly recommended. Anatolians are highly territorial and suspicious of strangers.
Alaskan Malamutes are strong independent dogs that love the outdoors, especially when it's cold. Some of these dogs are professional weight pullers that can pull over 1,000 pounds. Malamutes will become destructive if they're confined or left alone too long.
They love to howl and dig. Some breeders say female Malamutes will even dig den holes in your sofa. Most Malamutes are friendly with strangers and good with older children, but they're often aggressive with other pets.
