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.

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.

Annual cost of owning a Belgian Malinois puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Belgian Malinois true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

Anonymous asked:
I rescued a beautiful, short haired male, between about 2-3 year old, either part or full bread Belgium Malinois Shepard dog off the freeway a few days ago and can't find the owner, which I don't think they want him. He is not trained at all and dosent reconize any words (sit, stay, no), jumps on everyone, and pee's anywhere and everywhere like a wild dog would do and has no clue about going on the dirt, grass, bushes, house, just goes everywhere which I can't have. I want to try to train him so we can keep him and don't have the funding to hire a trainer so I'm researching how to myself. Any recommendations, tips or pointers on training him hopefully in like 5 days and see a difference in these behaviors?? Thank you! 😉

The best thing to do first off is take him to the vet. Have the vet check for a micro-chip. If there is none, then contact your local vets and humane shelter to register that you found a dog. If someone can prove that that dog belongs to them; they can say you stole it after not trying to find the owner well enough. Now, as per training; it is best to use positive reinforcement training methods which you can read/learn about on Youtube or online. But the first and foremost thing to do is to have a trainer come in and help you one-on-one. But if you can not afford that just yet, start with "House Training using Positive Reinforcement for dogs" on Google and that'll get you started in the right direction.

The average price of a Belgian Malinois puppy is between $1,500.00 - $2,500.00 per puppy, depending on the breeder, where the breeder lives, the pedigree of the puppy and if the puppy is on a spay and neuter contract or allowed to be left intact.

Not sure there are Belgian malamutes. I believe you mean Belgian Malinois. Depends on quality of parents.

I have a 5-month-old Malinois who thinks I'm a chew toy. How do I stop this behavior?

It is time to contact your local Positive Reinforcement dog trainer and set your pup and yourself up for some classes. But to start, every time your dog mouths you, say "Eeep!" really loudly and turn away from your dog and count to 15, keeping your back to your dog at all times. Cross your arms and do not look at your dog. Once you count to 15, go back to normal and give your dog something else to chew on such as an appropriate dog toy.

Best thing to do is give them toys to chew on and raw beef bones. They usually stop this behavior when they get their permanent adult teeth

My son bought a Malinois. I got no rest with it in the house. I know he lacks the ability to train the dog correctly. It is a nice dog! I think when it grows older it will be dangerous. Am I correct?

The Belgian Malinois is not a dangerous dog. To blatantly assume that the dog will be dangerous is unfair to the dog itself and the breed. However, the Belgian Malinois is not for everyone. This breed of dog is high energy and needs a job. They have a high prey drive that can be channeled into something positive if worked with correctly. If you do not feel your son can train the dog properly and give the dog the average of 2 - 2 1/2 hours of exercise this breed needs a day; please find another home for the dog. If a Belgian Malinois is well socialized, exercised and trained with a firm, but positive way; this is a great one-person dog. They are very loyal and loving towards their owners, which is why they are used as police and service dogs.

If the Belgian Malinois doesn't have proper training, there is a high chance of become a dangerous dog, imo... just as with any dog that has a guard dog reputation. There are bad dogs because there are bad owners.
