Race and Behaviour Specialist Can Paksoy's character analysis



Belgian Malinois

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.   

Belgian Malinois Training

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.

Belgian Malinois Care

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.
