The Malinois requires at least two walks in a day. He is a perfect jogging or hiking partner. In fact, Malinois can run up to 35 miles per hour. If you won’t walk with Malinois or won’t let him spend almost all supply of energy, it will result in behavior problems. Misbehavior, such as digging, biting and herding will be very hard to handle.
Genetics can be a reason for bad temperament in this breed, but in most cases it’s the result of failure to meet all the dog’s needs. Bad temperament of Malinois often shows, that his owner doesn’t know much about the breed, doesn’t train his dog properly and the dog wasn’t socialized with people or other animals. Such dog may be fearful or aggressive. Ha may fear bite, be very aloof with strangers or fight with the dogs. Vice versa, if you provide Belgian Malinois with constant training and clear rules, he will be a real joy for you and your family. Malinois is very loyal to his owner and his family. The dogs of this breed need everyday attention, mental stimulation and work.
