If you feed him three times a day he's fine. It sounds like he thinks he's top dog (i.e., out ranks you). Whenever my Malinois tries to be dominant (jumps on people, bites hands, etc) I immediately put him in his crate with a very firm "no!" and give him a time out for a few minutes. He has learned pretty well now that he doesn't get the attention he wants if he's stuck in his crate. Try a special game with him 2 or 3 times a day--sit and stay, while you go hide, and then he comes to find you. Or throw the frisbee for him. Heeling just takes awhile.
