hello!! I know I'm not an owner of Belgian Malinois (YET) but I have fallen in love with the breed and am hoping to learn more about them. Not having had a working dog before, I would like to get some HONEST testimonials from all of you about owning one? Especially with first time owners? I am a passinate dog lover and will only get one if I have done my proper research. (I spent over 3 years researching about my little whippets ) Thanks in advance!!

Have a Nice Day!

Ashlyn, we answered your questions in the Choosing a Dog forum. Please heed the advice against getting one to train as PSD. I'm not convinced you really know what you're in for with the Belgian Malinois. I love them - they're my favorite breed ever - but that said, I don't want to see this breed fall into owners who aren't prepared because it's not good for the owner nor the breed.
