Alakkawa Kennels is expecting a litter of puppies - due on or before
August 10, 2017.
Pups from Alakkawa Kennels last litter.
The breeders named these 2 sweet girls, and new owners changed their names.
Cypress is the smaller of the two (on the right) and she was named after the Cypress trees along the coast of California near Big Sur, and Mariposa was named after Mariposa Grove, which is a sequoia grove located near
Wawona, California in the southernmost part of Yosemite National Park.
Cypress currently lives in Seattle, WA with her new mommy
Mariposa currently lives in New Jersey with her new family.
Cypress and Mariposa are the daughters of Denver and Sequoia - pictured below.
PLEASE READ BELOW BEFORE YOU CONTACT US!
Those who read the information below will be provided with further details on our process.
Alakkawa Kennels has Limited Breeding's
Please DO NOT send money to the first breeder who may have a puppy unless you have done several things beforehand:
1. You conducted mounds of research on this breed.
2. You interviewed the breeder by speaking on the phone and not just by sending emails back and forth.
3. You and the breeder both know, beyond of a shadow of a doubt, this breed is for you.
4. You know your lifestyle and schedule can currently handle a puppy, and you and your family can also handle an AKK for over 15+ years.
5. You asked the breeder for photographs of the parents and the litter.
Alakkawa Kennels Questionnaire is not on this website. You will need to contact the breeders for it. However, please know you can probably expect to wait several months for a puppy depending on whether a breeder has a puppy available or not. Please send the following questions and answers in an email to the breeder if you wish to be placed on their wait list:
How much research have you done on owning an Alaskan Klee Kai?
Where do you live?
Do you have a fenced yard?
Are you aware of the adoption fee?
Do you have any other pets?
How far do you work from home?
If approved, how do you plan to pick up a puppy? Please know we normally do not ship.
Are you interested in breeding?
Are you aware of separation anxiety and how to help your AKK resolve this issue?
How do you plan to exercise your AKK?
These questions are not the only questions that are asked on the breeders questionnaire. These questions are only a very small snippet of what someone can expect from the
Alakkawa Kennels questionnaire.
Please also know the breeders have three contracts that go with owning one of their Alaskan Klee Kai.
Please, the breeders encourage you to read this website as there is mounds of information you should know, understand and appreciate before seeking to adopt an AKK. because this breed, the AKK breed is simply not for everyone. Owning an AKK takes a great deal of responsibility - socialization is the number one aspect to owner a well rounded AKK and the socialization is continuous throughout their entire life. If you do not have a great many friends, are not active, have no social life, no family who lives nearby, then please rethink owning an AKK. It is not fair to you or the AKK to never get them out in the world and help them to explore and find who they are. Just because the AKK is becoming a popular breed, are cute and love to cuddle is not the only reason you should want this breed.
PLEASE RESEARCH THE BREEDER!
If you decide to adopt from the Alakkawa Kennels breeders, then please conduct your research on them as well. They wish for you to get to know them also. Even if you decide not to use the Alakkawa Kennels breeders, please be sure to research the breeder you wish to use.
Lately, there have been several AKK breeders (or those posing as AKK breeders) who are doing conducting UNETHICAL practices. Breeders of the AKK are held at high standards and there are certain processes each breeder are supposed to be doing regarding protection of this breed, and unfortunately the latest discoveries point toward a few who are going the unethical routes.
First, there are scammers who will take your money and they have no intention of sending you an AKK because they do not even have an AKK to send to you; they just want your money. Next, the AKK breeder is either only providing verbal agreements with families who adopt an AKK, or if the breeder provides a written contract at all, after a year when the family gets the AKK spayed/neutered, the breeder is neglecting to supply the registration paper to the family so they can get the AKK registered with the United Kennel Club. The family sends the proof from their vet to the breeder and for one reason or another (excuses, excuses), the breeder does not send the registration paper. This is only one small portion of what a few AKK breeders are not doing for families when families adopt from them. Thus, the reason why the breeders at Alakkawa Kennels would like to make you aware that you should do your research on the breeder.

Please be careful when choosing a breeder, do your research on this breed to make certain this is the breed for you, and please let us know if you would like to move forward with us.
The breeders do not keep their extensive Alakkawa Questionnaire (which is copyrighted) on their website. Please inquire about the Alakkawa Questionnaire if you have researched the breeder's, the breed, and if you are truly interested in adopting a puppy, and please be sure to copy the questions above and answer them in the email when you request the questionnaire.
ALAKKAWA KENNELS WAIT LIST
Alakkawa Kennels is now placing interested persons on an Alakkawa Wait List for a future litter. The breeding pair will be Denver and Sequoia.
Normally, there will be only be 5 people on the Alakkawa Wait List at a time... Therefore, it is wise of you to be absolutely certain you wish to move forward with this breed, with the Alakkawa family as your breeders, and with the puppy that will be born.
Once the pups are born, in order for the breeders to 'officially' hold an Alakkawa puppy for you, you will need to also provide a $500.00 adoption holding fee so they can hold a puppy for you.
Again, all Alaskan Klee Kai breeders are different and all breeders set their own adoption fee for various reasons. Some breeders set their adoption fee on
a puppy based on show quality, eye color, coat color and size.
If you are approved to adopt a puppy, the $500.00 is again the 'adoption holding fee' that will enable the breeders to turn others away so they won't try to snag a sweet baby from you...
All Alaskan Klee Kai breeders are different and all breeders set their own adoption fee for various reasons. Some breeders set their adoption fee on a puppy based on show quality, eye color, coat color and size.
The $500.00 adoption holding fee is NOT the only fee a person can expect to pay for an Alakkawa puppy.
Alaskan Klee Kai are in the range of $1,500.00 to sometimes over $4,000.00.
Expect to pay between the "range" of $1,500.00, one thousand, five hundred dollars
$4,000.00, four thousand dollars
for an Alaskan Klee Kai...
Alakkawa Kennels adoption fee is $2,700.00.
Please understand the breeders appreciates the fees other breeders place on their own AKK; however, they have no control over whether you know or have found another breeder who charges a lesser fee than the breeders at Alakkawa Kennels. Adoption fees are a choice for every breeder of every breed. The breeders will not come down on their adoption fee because a person found another breeder who charges a lesser adoption fee.
The breeders prefer not to ship a puppy to another location within the United States; however, a new owner would be welcomed to fly to Atlanta/Hartsfield Jackson airport or one of the breeders could possibly fly a puppy to the owner providing the location is in the United States and providing one of the breeder's can take the time off from work. The cost for a turn around flight to hand deliver a puppy to his/her owner is not much different in pricing than flying him/her in cargo and it is much safer to go this route.
Lazarus is in the middle with his sister, Luna (b/w pup), and Noah (g/w fluffy pup). Lazarus, Noah and Luna are all adopted.
Pups from a past litter from Abby and Denver
All pups are living with their new families and are being spoiled rotten.
Alakkawa Kennels receives a tremendous amount of requests for a questionnaire; only to find the person did not do their research on this breed and only to find the person just wishes to ask questions. The breeders do not mind answering questions; however, all questions are answered on this website.
Serious interested parties are serious about making the decision to adopt a puppy.
If you do not have time for a puppy or cannot afford a puppy, please do not adopt an Alaskan Klee Kai.
If you cannot afford the vet care on a puppy and on up into adulthood, please do not adopt an Alaskan Klee Kai.
Please read this page
remaining pages on this website to
educate yourself on this breed.
If you are seeking to adopt an Alaskan Klee Kai, please know this breed is still very rare and even though breeders are becoming more prevalent throughout the world, every reputable Alaskan Klee Kai breeder is working extremely hard to improve the breed. Therefore, puppies are few and far between.
And, please take the time now to research this breed and again the breeder by learning as much as you can about the responsibilities of owning an AKK, so you will not find yourself in a pickle later down the road.

DOING RESEARCH ON THIS BREED TO MAKE CERTAIN THIS IS THE 'RIGHT' BREED FOR YOU...
If you have found your way to the Alakkawa Kennels website, then chances are you have 'read' a few facts about this breed.
You see pictures of available and beautiful Alaskan Klee Kai puppies
and of course you fall head over heels in love.
You think to yourself, "I have to have one of these puppies..."
So, you strike up a conversation with an adorable Alakkawa Kennels
Alaskan Klee Kai puppy and the puppy says to you...
I am a “LIFETIME COMMITMENT”
ALASKAN KLEE KAI.
I am not a “FORGET ABOUT ME WHEN I’M OLDER”
ALASKAN KLEE KAI.
If you cannot “GIVE ME” what I need to thrive with your family, then I am
the breed for you!
“YOU” should be knowledgeable to “ALL” health issues related to my breed.
“YOU” should commit to taking me to a veterinarian for vaccinations,
worm preventatives and yearly health check-ups.
“YOU” should get me spayed/neutered by the time I turn 6-8 months of age.
“YOU” should nurse me back to health should I get ill.
“YOU” should watch me at all times while I play in the yard so I do not swallow any foreign objects or eat a dead animal.
“YOU” should take care of me financially.
“YOU” should interview a breeder.
“YOU” should research my breed.
“YOU” should know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I will fit into your
family’s lifestyle and you will fit into mine.
“YOU” should take me to obedience training with a professional animal trainer so I can be a loyal member of your family.
“YOU” should know I love to talk, can be aloof with strangers, and you should know I must be socialized, socialized, socialized throughout my entire life.
“YOU” should crate train me.
“YOU” should house-break me.
“YOU” should educate me on your house rules.
“YOU” should walk me daily.
“YOU” should take me places with you and not just leave me in the house
to get bored.
“YOU” should not tie me up in the backyard, have me in a yard with an electric fence, and/or leave me unattended all by myself or with another animal where I will be scared.
“YOU” should do periodic maintenance checks around your entire fence to make sure I cannot dig around rocks, bricks, fence posts in your yard to escape since my breed is known to be escape artists like Houdini.
“YOU” should never strike me and you should teach your children to respect my space and teach them not to tease me or strike me.
“YOU” should teach your children not to chase me because eventually it will turn into a game of chase and run from the mice for me.
“YOU” should do research on the type of food you want me to have (no table scraps, please); plenty of fresh, clean water to drink at all times, and if my breeder starts me out on a certain brand, please change my diet slowly, and please know that not every expensive, organic type of dog food is always best for me.
“YOU” should teach me to get along with your cat(s) and your other animals that you may own.
“YOU” should have patience with me.
“YOU” should give me the time I deserve and not ignore me.
“YOU” should know I shed twice a year. I will get hair all over your house, “YOU” and your guests if you do not keep me brushed.
“YOU” should know I am notorious for having ‘separation anxiety’ and “YOU” should be willing to work with me.
“YOU” should know I love to run and if given the chance to run at my free will without being in an enclosed fenced yard, you may never find me again.
“YOU” should always be cautious when opening your doors that lead out of your house so that I never have a chance to bolt out of the house and into the street where I could get hurt.
“YOU” should know I am a hunter. I will chase squirrels, rabbits, other
animals, to include and not limited to, pet birds, pet hamsters/gerbils, etc.
“YOU” should L-O-V-E me unconditionally!
“YOU” should make certain you can do “EVERYTHING ELSE” that encompasses owning me.
“I AM “YOUR” “LIFETIME COMMITMENT ALASKAN KLEE KAI.”
And, “YOU” are my “LIFETIME COMMITMENT OWNER.”

As you should know, any breed of animal will become an adult and your research on this particular breed of animal will save you, the breed, and even the breeders a vast amount of heartache in the future if you will just simply take the time NOW to make certain this is the breed for you.
THIS BREED IS NOT FOR EVERYONE.
This breed is not a Husky.
This breed is an
ALASKAN KLEE KAI.
PLEASE make certain your lifestyle can handle this
breed (or any breed) of animal before you adopt.
NONE OF ALAKKAWA'S PUPPIES WILL HAVE BLUE EYES.
The Alakkawa Gang (T.A.G.) watches over the babies shortly after they were born.
From Left to Right: Valentino, Denver and Montana.
PLEASE READ THIS WEBSITE SO YOU WILL UNDERSTAND THIS BREED, THE BREEDERS PROCESS, AND THE BREEDERS ADOPTION FEE WHICH ARE ALL LISTED ON THIS WEBSITE FOR YOUR READING PLEASURE.
The “right” person/family needs to adhere to all of the breeder's contracts. This means keeping an AKK updated on his/her shots and provide worm preventative to the AKK for the rest of his /herlife, have him/her neutered/spayed in 12-13 months, get an adult exam on him/her in one year, protect him/her at all costs by not allowing him/her to run at will without being in an enclosed area, willing to send updated photographs on a monthly basis for the first year of his/her life to the breeder, and every 6 months thereafter, and remain in communication with the breeders for the rest of the life of the AKK. The breeders are at all puppy owners beck and call should owners of an Alakkawa puppy need them.
When you adopt an Alaskan Klee Kai from Alakkawa Kennels, please know you will become a member of the Alakkawa Kennels family. You can look forward to the breeders contacting you so they can receive updates on your new family member.
Since an approved person's puppy will not be able to fly in cargo according to the breeders wishes, then an Alakkawa breeder could also fly an AKK to an approved person's home state in the cabin with the breeder which would be much safer for the puppy. An Alakkawa breeder would be thrilled to do that for an approved person. If an AKK is shipped whether by the breeder in the cabin of the plane or whether the owner flies here to get their AKK puppy, he/she will have to have a health certificate per any airline a person chooses to fly on, ($75.00 extra). If the breeder flies the puppy or if the owner flies into the Atlanta airport, then the owner will need to make their travel arrangements and pay for the puppy to fly in the cabin with him/her. This extra fee on top of the airline ticket is about $100.00. Also, if the new approved family/person flies to Georgia (where Alakkawa Kennels is located - 35 miles east of Atlanta), and has the AKK fly in the cabin with the approved person, the new family member will have to purchase a collapsible crate ($65-$75 extra) and the dimensions must coincide with the airlines recommendations and that collapsible crate would have to fit underneath the seat. If you wish to go this route, an Alakkawa breeder will need to meet you at the airport and there is an additional $50.00 delivery/transportation fee to do so.
Alakkawa Kennels goal is to place their puppies where they will be provided appropriate veterinarian care, proper socialization, be happy, and most importantly – loved. The breeders at Alakkawa Kennels also wish for you to be happy with your (potential) new puppy. The breeders know and you should be made aware, there is no one breed of dog that is the right for everyone and the Alaskan Klee Kai is no exception.

Clifton and Ariel meeting Chance outside for a play date.
I just want to sniff your ear little buddy.
In honor of my sweet and precious friend, Debbie Clifton, I decided to name one of our puppies, Clifton. Debbie started me out as a breeder with my first male, Chance. Debbie passed away on February 27, 2013 . I miss her terribly!
Clifton is a loving, lively, hyper (to an extent) little boy. He and his sister, Ariel learned to go up stairs now and can sit on command with a little push of their rump down to the ground from time-to-time. Clifton and Ariel come (most times) when the breeders call them, but not always. AKK are known to be stubborn. It takes some patients on the breeder's part to get them to come. They are both very smart and when they get an object they are not supposed to chew on, Jeffrey and MaryAnne give the sound of hands clapping or a whistle or even a firm, “No.” Ariel and Clifton both understand those commands.
ALL puppies are held daily and learn to be crate trained which the breeders highly recommend to all new AKK owners for the simple reason of protecting the AKK and keeping the AKK out of harm’s way and protecting your door frames, etc. They are escape artists and some have been known to chew their way out of a room from being behind a closed door.
Both were taken to the vet on Friday, May 17, 2013 to have their first round of shots. Clifton was 4.6 pounds at the vet’s office; however, he may be a little heavier by now. Clifton was very shy of the vet/vet tech because they are the first person’s he has seen besides the breeders since he was born. The reason the breeders do not allow their puppy’s around others until their first set of shots is because they do not want outside germs from others in their home or affecting the pup's.
Alakkawa Kennels is a small kennel and only has about one litter a year. Please make sure you understand their adoption policy by taking the time to READ the "READ ALL ABOUT IT" page and the other pages contained within this website before sending the breeder at Alakkawa Kennels a request for a questionnaire. By reading all the pages contained within this website, it will truly prepare you for understanding the breed of the Alaskan Klee Kai, the breeders policy's, their requirements of you before and after you adopt an AKK from them, and it will also save YOU and the breeders mounds of time in the long run. Please make sure this is the breed for you before you send a request for a questionnaire.
