Member's EMAIL:

Why a Belgian Malinois?
What is your level of experience in the breed? If the person has not had a Malinois, ask about any experiences they have had with Malinois and what are their expectations? I'm looking to hear if they have an understanding of how much love and attention is required, if they understand that a Malinois can destroy if s/he decides to take a chunk out of the furniture, if they have a sense of how smart these little sweeties can be. I'm also trying to get a feel for the person. Are they too soft that they could be bullied or let the dog get out of hand or too tough.
