Somewhere, within the Great Land called Alaska, between the massive mountains, the vast oceans, the silent tundra and the endless sheets of ice, the Glacier Witch looked down and smiled at the bright eyed tiny form in front of her.

After rescuing it from the icy waters, and drying it before the fire, it appeared somewhat smaller than before, and she was pleased. She searched the various native dialects and deriving its name from the Eskimo words for ‘little dog’, she christened the masked creature, ‘Klee Kai‘.

The public Alaskan Klee Kai group (on Facebook) is great but there are some people who have purchased dogs that think theyre AKK and theyre not. A lot of people pay a tremendous amount of money for a mixed dog, often times more than a Klee Kai should cost.

Ill share that our entire conversation is based on my very biased opinion that breeders should be held accountable to a code of ethics. The club is run by volunteers and by nature, humans have opinions, and breeders can be very passionate so its possible that there may be disagreements about what is best for the future of the breed or general personality conflicts. However, its my opinion that a desire to protect and promote the welfare of the breed and meet the goals and objectives set forth by the club as a whole should really supersede any personality conflicts.

If breeders arent checking for those health problems, you could potentially be adopting a puppy that has a genetic defect that could have been avoided by careful breeding. If someone is living in a condo or townhouse and they dont have a fenced in backyard, Ill ask them if theyre prepared to take their dogs on walks at least two or three times a day. Scammers or puppy mills might tell you Alaskan Klee Kai arent recognised as a pure breed but they are.

There is a lot of fake registries online where you can key in some generic information and pay for a nice printed certificate to be mailed out. Thats the only place people can go to find puppies available right now that are guaranteed to be UKC registered outside of getting on a specific breeders wait list. We ask they support the efforts of good ethical breeders by telling potential buyers to purchase a purebred dog.

AKKAOA will not be held responsible for any form of information or misinformation implied, either directly or indirectly, under any of the individual AKK Breeders websites listed below.

General Membership Meeting

Did you know our quarterly membership meeting features special presentation on interesting topics? In our most recent meeting, our guest speaker Jamie Schultz talked about her experience in Granulomatous Meningoencephalitis with her AKK.

Is microchipping important?

In both situations, for the breeder and the purchaser, microchipping is really important. An adopter should ask if the breeder microchips their dogs. If the dog gets lost, how do we figure out who the dog belongs to? For me and my dogs, everyone single puppy that leaves my house is microchipped before it goes to its new home. I allow my puppy owner to register the microchip in their name, but by contract, I’m listed as the second contact.If my puppy owner is on vacation and their puppy gets out because the dog walker accidentally lets them out, and then animal control takes it, they find the microchip and get the contact information for the owner but they can’t answer so they call me, you better believe I’ll be making a plan to get that dog. The dogs produced from my breeding program are my responsibility for the entire lifetime of the dog. I want to know the puppy owners feel the same way about their dog. If their dog escapes, they should be willing to move heaven [and earth] to get that dog home safe and make sure it will never end up abandoned or in a shelter.
