What Are Malinois Dogs Bred For?
Belgian Malinois dogs make for exceptional guard dogs. With their high intelligence and alertness they are very adept to keeping your family protected and safe.
Belgian Malinois dogs have been used for all kinds of service. Starting with service in World War I, Malinois have been used in everything from seeing eye dogs, to drug dogs, to fugitive tracking.
Belgian Malinois are perfect for competitions. Their high intelligence and sensitivity to training make them quick learners and a high energy drive means they’re eager to play.
Belgian Malinois dogs were originally bred as sheepherders. Their energy and exercise needs means they can handle being in the fields for hours watching and tending to the herds.
About Our Belgian Malinois Puppies
My name is Keith. My wife, Marilyn, and I raise Belgian Malinois puppies. We’ve been breeding these beautiful dogs for 3 years.
It started with our male Simba and has grown to include several other dogs as a part of our family that now we can share with yours.
All our dogs are sold registered, de-wormed, vaccinated, and socialized with other dogs.
