13 Most Common Mistakes New Malinois Owners Make When Acquiring a Puppy
Many times in their excitement for a new Belgian Malinois puppy…families fall for many mistakes.
It’s important that you’re able to identify these so that you can avoid them when you acquire yours.
Acquiring a puppy on impulse.
It’s important that you do not make this mistake. Being impatient can lead you to fall for a puppy when you might not be ready for one.
You really need to think about this thoroughly…and only when you’re 100% onboard, you should proceed to acquire one.
Not doing research on the breed.
There are many people who haven’t looked into the breed- yet they go and get one because they saw one in a movie.
This is a very bad move.
Both on the person who sold the puppy and on the person that bought the puppy.
If after you’ve done research on the breed you still think you’re suitable for one- only then should you consider getting one.
Acquiring a puppy on a tight budget.
There are many unforeseen expenses that take place when acquiring a new puppy that most families don’t factor in.
This might cause anyone to go over their budget and leave them in a hard situation.
Things like crates, leashes, bedding, a dog house, feeding trays and dog training fees should all be factored into a buyer’s budget when in the market for a puppy.
Acquiring a puppy from backyard breeders.
Many times backyard breeders are the culprit of the gradual deterioration of any breed.
They don’t have the resources to educate themselves nor their puppy buyers.
Because they operate on a tight budget, they are usually not the most professional options and most often do half-fast, low quality work.
Getting a puppy shipped from far away.
It’s ideal that you work with someone that is close by in your state and that you trust.
Although in our situation… sometimes our breeding females in co-owned agreements live out-of-state with their handlers which make it necessary for us to fly our puppies in…but that’s usually from our reputable network of working dogs that we have bred and placed ourselves.
The harm is done when unknown breeders operate from far away that you have no idea with whom you’re dealing with.
It’s especially recommended that you stay away from getting shipped a puppy from the Midwest…
Typically Ohio, Missouri, and Pensylvania are notoriously known for operating puppy mills.
Also, have in mind that shipping a puppy under 10 weeks is often not a good idea.
The experience they go through and loud noises can sometimes be traumatic at this young age.
Acquiring a puppy from inexperienced breeders, infrequent breeders, or hobby breeders…
You see, it’s just as bad to not breed frequently as it is to breed excessively.
Breeders that breed once in a blue moon don’t have much experience…but also breeders that breed in excess usually run thin which leads to the exploitation of the breed.
Acquiring a puppy from puppy mills which many times disguise themselves under the term ‘commercial kennels’.
Many times, just because a puppy mill becomes ‘legal’ with permits and calls itself a kennel, it doesn’t mean that it’s no longer a puppy mill.
Sometimes they can be just as bad. So be wary.
Acquiring a puppy from kenneled ‘breeding dogs’ instead of from ‘active working dogs’.
There’s one big difference between these.
And that is that ‘kenneled dogs’ are used solely for breeding and rarely get appropriate exercise and training.
They have impressive lineage on paper but that’s about it.
They are mostly used for breeding puppies out of them. That’s their whole life. No work. No fun.
Acquiring a puppy with inferior markings…
Well bred puppies have certain markings on their coat that confirm their purity. Little to no dark markings on muzzle, face, and ears… or white patches in inappropriate places like on their backs or spine are disqualifications from the breed’s standards.
Acquiring a puppy very light on coat colors- such as super fawn or bleached fawn.
These coat colors are typically not very desirable in Malinois circles.
Acquiring a puppy from a “MULTIPLE BREED” breeder…
Typically, breeders that breed more than three different unrelated dog breeds are mostly for-profit enterprises and usually are unable to specialize in any one breed…they most often just want to capitalize on the public’s demand for different breeds.
Acquiring a puppy based solely on papers, titles, pedigrees and not putting attention for how the puppy actually looks and performs.
Sometimes unpapered dogs look and perform better than titled and pedigreed dogs.
Acquiring a puppy that is too intense or too low energy for your needs.
It’s ideal that the breeder has some sort of screening process to match puppies with suitable candidates. This is so that the puppy matches the handler’s energy levels accordingly.
