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.

Does your Belgian Malinois bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
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.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
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. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Belgian Malinois puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

How well do Belgian Malinois behave?

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.

After having several Malinois bitches from good working stock, I can tell you that you MUST be an involved dog owner with a Malinois. They need mental, physical and social exercises every day. It is a requirement to keep them from being juvenal delinquents. That is not a derogatory thing. It is a matter of fact. If you do not give them outlets for energy, both mental and physical, they will cause trouble while trying to satiate their drive. If you are an active family who has lots of time for a pet and enjoys interaction, this breed is awesome, loyal, comical, fun and protective. If you want something happy to lie on the couch all day while you are gone from dawn til dusk, do yourself a favor and get a cat.

I have imported, trained and sold Malinois and the people above are absolutely correct. Malinois need a job and they need a tremendous amount of exercise. In general, they are extremely high drive dogs and will get into trouble if they don't have an outlet for all that energy. They are definitely not for someone looking for a house pet or couch potato. They also require an experienced handler. Malinois are wonderful dogs. Just do your homework and work with a reputable breeder to ensure you get the right one for your lifestyle. And get a good trainer who understands the breed to help you.

Where did the Belgian Malinois breed originate?

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.

Why do Belgian Malinois pace?

I have an 8-month-old Malinois puppy mix rescued 3 months ago. 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 antsy in the pants.

Should I tape my 5-month-old Belgian Malinois ears back as they are still floppy?

It is normal for a 5-month-old to have ears that are still a bit floppy - particularly during teething? They should straighten up once they are done teething. You can always add a small amount of calcium paste (look for a calcium supplement made for dogs).
