Thank you for visiting my blog.
I am a French woman and I have the passion for animals and mostly Belgian Malinois dogs.
You might wonder why Belgian Malinois more than other dogs? It’s not that I don’t like other dogs. Actually I love them all however Malinois are a very specific breed that I discover from a friend when I lived in France. This dogs are so smart that they are capable of the best as well as the worst. I will describe more their personality and characteristic further.
As an animal lover, I had several pets. I believe that my passion for them started when I was a new born. As soon as I came back from the maternity hospital, my mother let me sleep in the cradle with my cat, Clovis, a beautiful Siamese. Then of course I grew up and I did all the miseries to this poor little cat, starting from pulling his hair to jumping on his tail…
At the age of 5, I moved to Japan and their we had a dog, Charlie, a japanese Shiba Inu. I learnt how to take care of a dog and my parents try to show me that having an animal is a lots of responsibilities. You have to feed them, walk them outside and entertain them, take care of them when they are sick and later you are devastated when they disappear. Charlie lived a long and beautiful life and even travel with us back to France 7 years later.
When I was teenager, we still had my dog Charlie and several cats (some disappear earlier in tragic way: car accidents or attacked by the neighbor dogs). My favorite sport was horse riding, I wished I had a horse but at this time, my parents felt that my “rebellious” attitude didn’t make me deserve to have one.
Then at the age of 17 I lived on my own and even if I was still depending on my parents I had all type of pets: rats, cats, pigeon, dogs… I was not really responsible of myself but when it was related to my pets I would have done everything to make them feel good or spend time with them as much as I can.
Later I met a friend that had 2 Belgium Malinois and… it was true, compare to my dogs her dogs were acting so smart! Here I started to showing interest for this breed and at the age of 25, I adopted my first Malinois, Domino du Domaine de Seugidor, that I named Sky. I had lots of experience with him and my other Belgian Malinois, Shiva. All that brings me to create this little blog, Malinois USA, in order to share with you my passion and some advises that I learnt in France and USA, from famous breeder and trainer around me.
In Malinois USA, I am not going to tell you that I know everything about Malinois because I am still learning everyday about them. Also I need to tell you that I am not a trainer or a breeder, all I do is giving my dogs the love that they deserve and I try to raise my Malinois the best I can. Because no matter what you heard about this breed, the most important is how much love and attention you give them. Even if I am not a professional in this field, my dream is to open a reserve and save animals and I hope I will live in a ranch with lots of Malinois, horses and other animals. Sometimes Animals are more human that humans, don’t you think?
If I can help you or advise on anything, let a message on Malinois USA blog and I will answer you.
