The Alaskan Klee Kai is an adorable purebred pup that originated in Alaska, coming from Husky breeds. They were used for pulling sleds, hiking, hunting, tracking and were also excellent alert dogs. If you want to learn more about Alaskan Klee Kai puppies, then keep reading.

Where to get Alaskan Klee Kai Puppies

You’ll be able to find this dog breed anywhere you can adopt dogs. For example, you can first try your local animal shelter or rescue organization. You’ll be able to gain a new furry friend while saving a dog’s life. However, they might have Alaskan Klee Kai puppies, adults, seniors, or mixed breeds. Razor…

If you truly want a puppy and want to know where it came from, you can research reputable breeders. Luckily, this dog breed is purebred, so the American Kennel Club recognizes it. So, you can begin your breeder search on the AKC Marketplace

Remember, an ethical breeder will do the following:

  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible, not allowing them to leave their mother until at least eight weeks old
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date with their vaccinations
  • Health screen and genetically test the parents before breeding to ensure it’s safe, then test the puppies
  • Have health documents and family tree history available for you to bring home upon adoption
  • Want to meet with you in person to get to know you and allow you to meet the parents and the litter

In addition, a good breeder will also be able to answer all your questions about the breed as a whole, the parents, and the litter. Also, they’ll be open to talking about their experience and reputation as a breeder and help you along the adoption process.

If you find a breeder who does not do the above, they are most likely a puppy mill or a backyard breeder. Avoid these breeders since they do not breed the dogs in healthy or safe conditions. Also, they’re more interested in making a profit rather than finding the puppies good homes. Macy…

The Cost

The average cost of an Alaskan Klee Kai puppy is between $1,800 and $3,000. These dogs are popular and adorable to boot. However, the coat may vary depending on the breeder’s location, the time of year, the number of puppies in the litter, or the puppy’s lineage, coat color, or age.

Appearance

Thie dog breed can come in three different sizes: Toy, Miniature, and Standard. For example, the Toy Alaskan Klee Kai can grow to be no more than 13 inches tall and weigh between six and 12 pounds. A Miniature Alaskan Klee Kai will grow 13 to 15 inches tall and weigh between ten and 18 pounds. Finally, a Standard Alaskan Klee Kai will grow to stand about 15 to 17.5 inches tall and weigh between 16 and 25 pounds.

In addition, this doggo has a wiry medium coat that only comes in three colors: black & white, gray & white, or red & white. Winston…

Temperament

This dog breed is known for being loyal, intelligent, and vigilant. They’re affectionate with their family members and are great with young children and around other dogs. In fact, they’re used to working with other dogs from their sled-pulling days so that you can have more than one dog at home.

They were also used as watchdogs, so they might be wary of meeting strangers at first. Therefore, you’ll want to give your Alaskan Klee Kai early training and early socializing to get them used to other people. Luckily, they’re somewhat easy to train. However, it might help to hire a professional dog trainer to help you out, just in case.

Also, Alaskan Klee Kais have high energy levels. So they’ll need to live in a bigger house with a fenced-in yard so they can get their energy out and stretch their legs. You’ll also want to give them at least one hour of exercise and playtime every day. Annie…

Alaskan Klee Kai Puppies – Veterinary Needs

Generally, this doggo is relatively healthy. However, they are known to get some genetic issues from their parents. For example, this dog is prone to the following health issues:

  • Juvenile Cataracts
  • Liver Disease
  • Patellar Luxation
  • Cardiac Issues
  • Thyroid Issues
  • Factor VII Deficiency
  • Pyometra
  • Cryptorchidism

You’ll want to bring them to the vet at least once a year for their annual checkup. Then, bring them to the vet multiple times to track their growth and development for the first year of their life.

With proper care, your Alaskan Klee Kai has an average lifespan of about 13 to 16 years. Kenzie…

Diet

You can feed this dog breed anything that’s vet approved. For example, you can give them high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or homemade dog food. Also, be sure the food is appropriate for their breed size, age, weight, and metabolism.

Grooming

Alaskan Klee Kais does shed a good amount. So, to keep that under control, you’ll want to brush their coat at least once a week. During shedding season (the spring and fall), you’ll want to brush their coat a least two to three times weekly, if not daily.

Also, you can bring them to a professional grooming salon once a month to give them a good clean and a bath. Otherwise, keep up with trimming their nails, cleaning their ears, and brushing their teeth.
