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.

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

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.
