Dog Breed Info

The Belgian Malinois is quite smart, energetic and versatile. This breed needs more exercise than a simple daily walk. They are natural guard dogs, so they should be socialized at early puppyhood. This will prevent them from developing an aggressive attitude.

This breed can compete in such skills as agility, obedience, flyball , tracking and herding, among others. They don’t get along well with other pets, specially if they are small ones because they tend to chase them for they have a high prey drive.

The Malinois is definitely not a dog for beginners because it takes a firm, but sweet and patient leader to control him and make him understand that humans are at a level above them. This will prevent the animal from being aggressive and over protective.
