Versatile, hardworking and intelligent, the Belgian Malinois radiates confidence far beyond that of any other breed. Belgian Malinois are an energetic, highly active breed who’s as comfortable playing fetch as they are conducting search and rescue missions.
This highly trainable breed will master anything you teach them. From agility and obedience training, to pastoral tasks and even military service, there is nothing a Belgian Malinois can’t do.
Often mistaken for a small German Shepherd, Belgian Malinois are one of four distinct herding breeds native to, you guessed it, Belgium. Belgian Malinois are energetic and generally require more activity than smaller breeds, which makes them an excellent choice for high-energy owners and active families.
As a herding breed, Belgian Malinois may chase or nip at small children, which can be corrected with early and frequent training and socialization. These intelligent pups are sensitive to punishment - they need a trainer who is firm, fair and consistent.
Malinois can be aloof in the company of other dogs and strangers. Rarely are they shy, aggressive or fearful. They make excellent watchdogs and possess the size, intelligence and agility to be capable guard dogs.
