Sam the “untrainable” Belgian Malinois

Sam is a 3 year old Belgian Malinois that came to us from another training facility that deemed him “untrainable”. His original owner and several trainers completely gave up on him. We knew we could help Sam so we took him in. This was a dog that was extremely aggressive and was not even potty trained at 3 years old. After a few short months with Your Dog Guru, Sam is now healthy, happy and ready to find a good home!

    Would you be able to advise me regarding my 2 year old malinois. He has been neutered and mostly he is wonderful. But he has separation anxiety (my fault) and only sleeps until 3-4 at night and has been this way since we had him at 8 weeks. He also goes nuts when me and my fiancé try to hug or even kiss and after virtual celebate, it is becoming frustrating to say the least and finally he has unplanable moments of aggression. Which means my grandkids are unable to visit us at home. Can you help x

      Hi Janet! As you mentioned, things like separation anxiety and reactivity are all taught behaviors. Mals are incredibly smart and can quickly become a handful when the proper foundation is not built early on. Most owners take the approach of just waiting and seeing what happens as their puppy matures and they mix-and-match training tips with very little consistency. You need to start back at square one, reset expectations and begin a period of rehabilitation with your dog by either hiring a professional trainer or following a structured training program. If you haven’t already checked out our online interactive training program, please do so. It’s a fantastic tool that can set you on the right path from start to finish if you’d like to train your dog using our techniques and methodology.

    Simply amazing! This video is what caught my attention to this program right from the start. I am starting on week 2 of training with my girl that many have claimed is unteachable and aggressive. She is already calming down and looking at things differently. At three years old we are back to basics and she is doing great in her kennel and learning what place means. By taking away her choices and making what I want out of her clearer she is showing less signs of frustration already. Can’t wait to see what the following year will bring for me and my girl! Keep up the good work and looking forward to new videos you post. Thanks Jimi!!!!
