Belgian Malinois and German Shepherd

What's the main difference between a German Shepherd and a Belgian Malinois?

Also, I know both are used in law enforcement/military. Never had any experience at all handling these dogs before yesterday and came to appreciate the power behind these animals once I played around with a Belgian Malinois at a friends and experienced its bite force. Even though it was all play biting and rough housing I experienced extreme bruises on my arms and some lacerations on my hands just from playing around. Beautiful dog mind you. Wasn't his fault. Had a good time. I was then reminded not to 'rile' him up. What is it about this breed that makes them a good "Family" pet or any less dangerous than a Pitbull for example when NAVY Seals use these dogs?

    GSD is the more stable while Malinois tend to be more hectic. Malinois as the smoller dog is also more athletic. With GSD there is a realy HUGE difference between work and showlines.

              It's asking her to regurgitate some food for it. Like, Oh, hey, you just got here, have you been hunting? Do you have a full belly? Can I have some.

              Licking is gross.

                Yes, and when humans hug, they are requesting breast milk.

                Bro why is she just taking it like that

                Wolves have pretty good breath apparently

                >so they recognize anything from other dogs to adult humans as prey

                i'd trust a game bred pitbull to be friendly over a neurotic attack dog like a belgian malinois

                it's not true at all that they see humans as prey they need to be handled all the way from back when they actually fought in the pit and a referee would handle the dogs in the pit

                they are more untrustworthy of strangers rather than just be super aggressive and try and attack people like a guard dog would

                also one breeder might not be able to tend to all the dogs on his yard so he needs help watering, feeding, exercising the dogs so they can't just go crazy and randomly bite people also they may need to go to vet or the bugman comes onto the yard to stop flees etc etc...

                also they are used in hog hunting often a breeder would loan out his dogs to a pig hunter to have them catch hogs in order to prove they are doing their job "i have proven dogs ask (insert hog hunter) he hunted them" makes them more desirable

                i am referring to game bred pitbulls not all the other random shit like xl pitbulls or whatever they are calling bandogs these days

                >i'd trust a game bred pitbull to be friendly over a neurotic attack dog like a belgian malinois
                Fricking lmfao enjoy your toddlers being killed for food.
                > they need to be handled all the way from back when they actually fought in the pit and a referee would handle the dogs in the pit
                Yes they were beaten, horrifically, into absolute submission and kept chained whenever possible. I mean horrifically. If a pitbull moved with permission it would bleed. These were not dogs you put down when that made them mean, they were hit even harder.

                Why do canids do this?

                Infants do it for another reason but adults do it as a mutual trust behavior (their most potent weapons and most sensitive body parts right up against each other) that also allows them to smell where they've been so exactly like a human hug

                They eat almost purely meat so yeah it's way less unpleasant than dog breath; dogs get bad breath because of what's in dog food + the way that it's made. I still wouldn't let one just go to town on my mouth like that.

                Dogs also have bad breath because most owners don't brush their teeth

                My dog gets to kiss only after he's had his teeth brushed

    They're nice dogs, and safer than pitbulls because they weren't specifically bred to kill randomly, but they're not really "good family pets" unless you know how to train it and have the time to keep it busy

    I have relatives who bought one because it looked cool, they're having a pretty tough time with it

    Modern malinois are extremely high energy handler-focused dogs which makes them good for strict obedience jobs but bad for any job that requires any sort of independent thinking

    They're more robotic than most breeds which makes training and working easier

    They used to be a lot more similar to GSDs or dutch shepherds

    Poor socialization, a properly socialized malinois has the restraint to be as gentle as a baby with bare skin regardless of "riling up" unless commanded not to

    There are countless dogs that do more damage than a pitbull. What make pits dangerous is that they they can flip into maul-mode at any time for any reason.

    A Gsd with a good temperment is just a beginner friendly mal.

    I breed my very recently dead white German shepherd with malinois. They are more energetic and more affectionate to the point of selfishness.

    Malinois are more effective at signalling your five incher to the world. Otherwise similar

      Malinois are healthier, closer to the original GSD before west germans and amerifats turned it into a discount mastiff, and it makes these people projecting their small pp issues seethe.

      >why less dangerous than a pitbull
      Because you can trust a trained malinois, they just bite really hard

      Pitbulls have a disordered form of predatory instincts so they recognize anything from other dogs to adult humans as prey and unlike most prey driven dogs, omit the stalking sequence and appear to "just snap".
