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.

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.

The average price for a Belgian Malinois puppy that is registered with papers to prove it will be between $1,500.00 - $2,000.00 per puppy. However, every breeder is different and will charge a price they deem is fair for their stock. Talk to several breeders and ask why they price their puppies at whatever price they have them at. A good breeder will be able to give you a list of all the expenses he/she has that entail the production and raising of a healthy, balanced litter of puppies.

How should I train our Belgian Malinois to poop outside? He's very nervous!

The best way to train your puppy to go outside is to use the 2/4/6 hour method. When you are home with the puppy put a timer on that goes off every 2 hours and take your puppy outside. When you are away from your puppy and your puppy is in a crate or in his/her own space; make sure you come back and take your puppy out to use the bathroom every 4 hours. In the evening, have the timer go off every 6 hours to let your puppy out so that he can learn with ease to use the bathroom outside. When he does go outside, make sure to have a party and praise him with lots of pets and treats. This way he'll learn that going outside to use the bathroom is a good thing.

I have 2 small dogs. I would like to have a bigger breed for protection. Would the Belgian Malinois breed be a good choice?

The Belgian Malinois is an amazing breed of dog that is pushing the German Shepherd aside for working with humans in both guard, protection, police, military and other aspects of working dogs such as bomb and drug detection. The Belgian Malinois is an intense breed of dog that needs a job, discipline, training and a firm but gentle handler. But with the right owner and trained correctly, they can be registered as personal protection dogs.

If you want to do all the work of owning a personal protection dog, even if you buy one already trained one which-will cost you $5000.+ to start-you could get a Mal. If you just want a family dog that will guard your house/property get a rotti or something.

My female was bought with the simple intention of a pet. I.e no specific protection training has been done. I can guarantee that based off her behaviors she would protect the house and her family without reserve. She is extremely protective over my son. So while all dogs are different, I personally would say they are a good dog to protect yes.

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! šŸ˜‰

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.

Crate train him. This type of dog needs a lot of excerise. Crate train until he learns to go outside. Shame you don't have another older dog he could learn from.

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