- Feeding Malamute is fun. They are usually food-driven and will like to eat anything. Most of respectable dog-food companies make deceant foods. Use puppy food until about 12 months of age, than slowly switch to adult one. In foods, most important is to watch for main ingredients (one which are first on the list of ingredients). Avoid foods mainly based on non-meat products (ex. corn) or based on meat-byproducts (ex. chicken byproduct meal). Look for "real" meat main ingredient (ex. chicken, lamb or simmilar). Also, look that food is not too "single-sourced" (ex. lots of different ingredients - here you can expect vegetables, grain and byproducts).

-Avoid feeding too much "on-the-side", like table scraps. Give treats only as praise or part of training. However, you can give , from time to time, almost any human food to dog in small amount. Malamutes love fruits and vegetables. My dog loves oranges. Do not be afraid if they "play" first with fruit. It's ok.

-Certainly AVOID COCOA products (ex. chocolate). They contain substance poisoness to all dogs. That substance is accumulating in dogs, so they can die of a lot of small "tid-bits" of chocolate over a years of time,...

- To avoid diarheas from food-switching, try to feed them same food all the time. Unlike people, that kind of monotony is good for dogs.

- Feed puppies 3 times per day until 6 months of age, than 2 times per day. I would not recommend once-per day feeding for Malamutes. Main reason is their metabolism and high chance of bloat if they eat all of the day's food at once in Malamute-manner.

- Amount of food for Malamutes should be "as on the bag guide" only if they exercsize A LOT. For normally living, pet Malamute decrease that amount slightly. Their organism process food much better than other dogs and uses energy much more efficient. Without a lot of exercsize (serious one), they will become overweight on "normal" amounts of food.

- Food supplements might not be necessary, if your vet recommends additional vitamins, my suggestion is to go with Pet-Tabs (worked great on my dog). Also, avoid Linatone, it seem that it is not Malamute-compatible (even small amounts cause diahrea in Malamutes).
