That will definitely become a problem. I'd say contact a trainer on how to socialize a dog safely. I would not muzzle her because though she won't be able to bite she will still send off bad messages to another animal causing another dog to harm her. That won't solve anything. Um, I used to watch a show called "good dog" by Stan Coren before the whole Milan craze and he used to let his dogs play without a leash bc a lot of tension fro you is transferred down the leash which may cause your dog to react badly.

As for small animals, just keep her away. Husky/Malamutes are incredibly smart, active dogs. Run her till she's tired and then try to socialise her to other dogs and smaller animals. Physical exhaustion will calm her mind to be more willing to accept friends.

Actually, how does she act around other animals?? Is it aggression or just rambunctios action??

You need to try to make strangers a very positive thing for your dog, but you need to make sure it is still safe for anyone who approaches your dog.

Start by bringing treats on your walks with you. When someone asks if they can pet your dog, ask your dog to sit first so you have control, then tell the person to please give him a treat first as he can be a little shy of new people. Make sure your dog is not having a bad mood.

If he takes th treat then you just made your first step.

For socializing with other animals. You could let her watch from your windows while dogs are playing, if she wags her tail give her a treat.

if this doesnt work out a professional would do the job. good luck

It depends on the other animal. She acts like she wants to hurt cats, and small dogs, but larger dogs it appears that she just wants to assert her dominance. She is TOO friendly with other people, But I dont want her to hurt someone elses pet.

After all necessary shots are done, you can bring him to dog parks to meet lots of dogs and dog owners like giving him treats, you have to be cautious first and supervise your dog.
