Malamutes, in general, love getting children's attention and are patient with them. However, little Malamutes— growing fast— can overpower children (aged 5 and below) quickly. Instances of knocking over a child are unavoidable. With that, teaching children to approach and handle dogs properly is necessary. Supervise their interaction, so there won't be any biting or ear/tail-pulling. Also, tell children to never disturb a sleeping/eating dog or try to steal his food. Never leave a child alone with a dog.
Early training and socialization can help a Malamute puppy grow friendly around other dogs. They tend to cats or other smaller animals, except when he grows up with them and is taught not to chase them. Introduce your Malamute to other pets in the house, and supervise every interaction. This breed may see cats and other smaller animals outside as an object of attack.
