My good buddy who’s a canine coach supplied me his 5 yr previous Belgian Malinois for adoption. He’s skilled as a safety canine so he can guard his grasp, chunk on command, launch the chunk on command, keep till launched and others. He has a trophy as third placer in Stage 1 safety in a safety canine competitors. I’ve two canine at current: A one year-old and a 9 month-old Labrador… each are females, obedience skilled and never neutered.

I want to undertake him and I do know I can deal with him. Will he settle for me after being my buddy’s favourite canine for five years? My buddy assured me that he can switch the loyalty of the canine to me. He’s a fierce canine when in competitors however a really quiet canine when exterior the coaching ring. Actually my buddy brings the canine with him on a regular basis and I do know of a number of events that the canine is off leash. He’s giving him up as a result of he desires to interchange him with a youthful canine.

Ought to I take him up on his supply?

Pricey Mackie:

Sure… the canine will switch his loyalty to you.

Listed below are two main points you must contemplate earlier than adopting this canine:

1. The Belgian Malinois (particularly one that’s bred and skilled for chunk work and safety canine sports activities) would require a number of work ON YOUR PART to discover ways to deal with this canine. You are going to want a number of coaching… one-on-one type… to efficiently combine this canine into your life. It is like driving a Ferrari or a race automobile. The automobile already runs nice, however when you do not study the fitting method to drive it, you will find yourself killing your self. And simply since you already know drive a Subaru would not lower it… we’re speaking Ferrari, right here. And the Belgian Malinois is a Ferrari with the tricked out Turbo engine.

2. The breed is an especially HIGH DRIVE breed. This canine wants TONS of train and psychological stimulation. TONS. Please take the time to acknowledge that adopting this canine will probably be a serious duty.

For those who determine to do it, and you might be profitable, you will have a tremendous companion. The breed is kind of wholesome and you’ll be content material in figuring out that you just personal a KING OF KINGS so far as working canine are involved.

A part of me has at all times needed what you are eager about getting. However my life-style and dedication to the train and coaching necessities are one thing I should not have at this present level in my life.

P.S. Make it possible for the canine is not canine aggressive earlier than you determine to take possession.

That is all for now, people!
