Overview
Protective, strong, and territorial, the Belgian Malinois is great for working or obedience training. Used at times as a watchdog, this breed is very alert, loyal, yet very loving. This breed needs to be entertained or will become destructive. Displays herding behavior.
Character
A working breed that needs a job to do. Very energetic, watchful, and protective of their companions as well as their territory. Given the right job, training, and exercise, this dog will be sure to thrive. Requires extensive socialization from puppyhood.
Temperament
Very intelligent, this breed can do well around children and other pets given the proper socialization and activities. Recommended around larger and less passive pets, and older and more respectable children. The Belgian Malinois is very obedient, eager to please and a great working dog.
Care
This shorthaired breed is relatively easy to groom. Regular brushing with a firm bristle brush will remove any excess hair, and keep the coat beautiful. Only bathe when necessary as regular bathing can dry out the skin and coat. A rather light shedder, the Belgian Malinois does shed heavily given the season.
Coat
The Belgian Malinois is a shorthaired breed that doesn't require much maintenance. Has somewhat of a coarse and harsh coat, which is strong enough to be weather resistant. Neck hair is slightly longer, and has a dense undercoat.
Training
This breed is fairly easy to train. The Belgian Malinois is eager to please, great working breed, and very intelligent. Does well in obedience training if consistent, firm, and experienced. The Belgian Malinois is a difficult breed to handle if proper precautions are not taken.
Activity
The Belgian Malinois will do well in an apartment environment, if given sufficient exercise. However, it is recommended that this breed have a medium to large yard. A very active breed, regular exercise is necessary.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Belgian Malinois puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

How well do Belgian Malinois behave?

2 Comments

Anonymous

A dog who is well behaved has a good owner. One who spends many hours teaching manners and obedience. It's really all about how well the owner can teach the dog to obey NOT the individual breed. It's important that the owner learns about how a dogs mind works and how to be pack leader. For people who don't understand overly much about dog training, it's very important to go to training classes and learn all of this. The dog's behavior also depends on how well the dog's needs are being met. It's SO important to learn all you possibly can.

As a person who competes in ipo with GSD and Malinois and also trains my sport dogs as medical services dogs, I must agree that training and quality time with a dog is extremely important. That said you would have to be willfully ignorant not to realize there are basic personality differences between breeds. In general Malinois are very intelligent and eager to please but they are sensitive and require an experienced handler. It is not fair to the owner or puppy to lead people to believe these dogs can or should be handled like a Lab or a Beagle.

The Belgian Malinois is one of four varieties of Belgian Sheepdogs, which were developed in Belgium in the late 1800s. The four varieties are the Malinois (fawn-mahogany, short coat with black mask), Tervuren (fawn-mahogany, long coat with black mask) the Laekenois (fawn, rough coat), and the Groenendael (black, long coat). The American Kennel Club (AKC) recognizes all but the Laekenois as separate breeds in the U.S., while the United Kennel Club recognizes all four types as one.

2 Comments

I have a 8 month old Malinois mix rescued 3 months ago so I'm new to this but here is my experience and what I've learned from reading. She's either sleeping or busy, period. She's high energy and will pace if she hasn't had enough exercise (approx 5 miles a day) or doesn't have something to chew on (bone, ball, or toy). Malinois dogs are a working breed with energy to spare. They love to use their nose for games of hide & seek, etc. Mine is registered for a scent work class (hide & seek/search & rescue) as well as a "target" class which will teacher to go get things for me. Your Mal needs many jobs to do to keep her happy. Mine is smart as a whip, loving, and keeps me on my toes. Awesome companion as long as she's not idle.

Your Belgian is bored. She is looking for something to do, by nature she is a working dog. So if she is not kept busy, she will get ants in the pants lol

You may want to consider a change in dog food. My Belgian began itching and biting severely when put on Nutro dog food. I changed this after a month of feeding and switched to Taste of the Wild food and all itching stopped within 2 days.

I have a two year old Mal, I had that problem also but not for long. Put Olive oil in their food, like a tablespoon only 2-3 times a week. They love the taste and it is good for their skin and coat. Once itching is gone you can use less or just when you notice that their skin is getting dry and itchy again.

Bel. Mal.'s are known to have skin problems to include dryness and skin alergies. Fish oil and olive oil do sometimes help. If its an allergy then he might need a course of steroids from the vet. Flea allergies are an issue. Mine only needs one flea bite to drive her allergies into a full belly rash and between her toes and pads. Hope it helps.

Was told they did not know what she was..after taking to the vet to be spayed and up to date shots, I was told she was a shepherd and pit bull mix. I have her in classes and the trainer said a he thought she was a Belgium Malinois breed.. She is almost a year old, and meets all that I have read about,,very strong and is difficult with bad habits..I don't have a history as she is a rescue. I also have a 10 year old Golder Retriever who has kept her occupied but can look at me at times exhausted. We have a large back yard, fenced and a dog door. A very funny situation as we were not looking to adopt or get another dog.. Molly was on her last days at this kill shelter..but I need help..she sleeps well at night, but she loves to chew...my wood floor, my down comforter, my counters and much more...HELP!!!

My name is Rebecca. I've had my female Belgian Malinois for about 2 months. She is now 7 months old and also loves to chew. Try taking your dog to the pet store and pick out one of the black kong toys, those are for extreme chewers. Also look for all natural bully sticks. My dog absolutely loves them. I get the 12 inch sticks and let her chew to her hearts content. Still tries to chew on various items in the house, so correct the behavior as soon as you notice it. Good luck!

Freeze socks or hand towels. They will choose that over anything to chew. I currently have a 7 month old male Malinois named Goofy.

I have two Mals and they are kenneled during the day when I am not at home. While home, they are active outside or in the home. It is safe to leave dogs kenneled while you are away for both you (and your items) and the Malinois.

That's an awful lot. Our 14 week Mal-cross eats 1 c 3 times daily. As long as the pup looks healthy and is eliminating regularly, and not lethargic which would be VERY strange for a malinois, you should be ok.

It's all about socialization. What age did you acquire your elgian Melinois puppy? Did you start taking him out for walks in parks or in social places? If you keep your mali home, they will display shyness around other pets or human. I take mine downtown and walk around the market place, at first he acted shy, now he is really cool with it.

I got my Mal puppy at 9 weeks and shes now 13 weeks. As soon as I got her and took her home (I live with a friend who rescues pitbulls and there are 8 dogs at the house) she would pee which means shes submitting. Shes great around the dogs at the house. But shes a Alpha female so she can be aggressive towards other dogs and protective over me. These dogs know no fear, so its weird that your dog would submit to a puppy. Could be a number of things, bad breeding (you dont want a super submissive Malinois) or she wasnt socialized much. Either way, get her around as many dogs and people as you can. Shes young so she will hopefully grown out of it. I just took mine to petsmart and my Mal almost attacked a 180 Mastiff lol

You have to teach your dog to "Leave it" at home. Then when he wants to follow a cat tell him: "Leave it". Pull him and continue walking.

You need absolute obedience outside distraction before you can expect obedience when distracted. Keep him on a short lead and get his attention with a 'focus' or 'watch' command. once he looks at you, work with him until the distracting human/animal is gone. Use food or his favorite toy. Most importantly, FIND A TRAINER.

This worked for me with an affectionate German Shepherd. As your dog prepares to jump up, bend your leg and raise your knee so that his momentum makes his chest thump into your knee while saying "down" or "no". If your dog is anything like mine, it won't take long for him to get the idea, especially if you praise him for not jumping after he catches on.

I have an Adult Belgian Malinois and I have had her since she was a puppy. The BM will definitely be a good fit, they love to work and are extremely active dogs. Will love your large yard to play in. Highly inteligent and you could train your BM to do almost anything. But you also have to show them that you are the Alpha in the house or they will run over you.

A 3 yr old malinois is usually very receptive to learning. They love to have a job. Individual dogs will do better at some things than others will. So if you ware wanting to train for a particular thing i.e. herding or bitework, you may want to have the person who will help you with training evaluate the dog.
