Belgian Malinois is energetic, vibrant and eager to work. They are aware of their surroundings and intelligent dogs. Belgium Malinois often needs to communicate and play games with the master. They tend to make very strong connections with a single person. During the puppet period of the Belgian Malinois, there may be phobias against certain objects and locations, but usually these phobias disappear as they grow up.
The Belgian Malinois should be trained gently and decisively. The Belgian Malinois responds very strongly to stiff reactions; hitting or shouting at them will only have negative consequences. The best results can be achieved with award-winning training methods. Belgium Malinois needs mental stimulation, so training should not be too repetitive. Loyalty and sport based training (such as tracing or agility training) is very helpful and helps to bring out all the talents of the Belgian Malinois.
The Belgian Malinois needs to be brushed and combed twice a week, and this should be done more often when shedding. Too much brushing or combing can damage the inner fur. The Belgian Malinois lives average for 12-15 years. They have similar health problems with other breeds, but are more susceptible to epileptic disease.
The Belgian Malinois should be socialized from the puppy period if they will live with other dogs and pets. They are shy about strangers but get on well with children. They are not suitable for people who do not have enough time because of the need for too much socialization and activity.
