Welcome to our home.  We are an international organization devoted to the promotion and welfare of Alaskan Klee Kai, serving as a resource for owners, breeders, fanciers and the general public.

Alaskan Klee Kai are purebred dogs.

If you are considering adopting one, do your research and be sure to buy one that is UKC registered. The United Kennel Club is the only legitimate* registry that recognizes this breed.

​Registration papers may not matter to you now but what it represents is HUGE. Support ethical breeding habits, get a health guarantee and maintain the quality of this breed by working with an AKKAOA Breeder!

*Some breeders also register with the American Rare Breed Association

General Membership Meeting

Did you know our quarterly membership meeting features special presentation on interesting topics? Our next meeting is on December 5th and we will talk about Raw & Home Cooked Diet!

Members can now also watch recordings of past meetings. Recent topics include Puppy Culture, AKK in performance sports & therapy work.

Calling Fellow AKK Owners

The AKKAOA Health Committee is conducting a health survey of ALL Alaskan Klee Kai to determine basic health, temperament, and breeding trends for the AKK. Your contribution is very important to us.

There are three goals for this survey:

  1. Evaluate the overall health of the breed

  2. Identify health issues that are appearing in the breed now and potential future health issues

  3. Report the results of this survey to the Alaskan Klee Kai Community





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. For the little Husky's smaller size would make it an ideal companion.

She searched the various native dialects and deriving its name from the Eskimo words for 'little dog', she christened the masked creature, 'Klee Kai'.
