Default Am I welcome here?

Am I welcome here.....I don't own a GSD, I have a Belgian Malinois.
I looked ALL OVER for a Mal forum, just not enough owners I guess.
Anyway, just got this 5 month old girl 2 weeks ago. When I get a minute I'll type a lengthy post about how we came to buy her.

*** Paragraph removed by ADMIN***

So, I'm here for advice, especially on training and I'm looking to buy some used Leerburg or other dvd's on the subject. There's a guy in FL. that breeds Mal's and has some dvd's for sale too, but dang, $260.00 plus shipping for 4. OUCH !!!

You are as far as I'm concerned.

I think you are welcome, but you better leave the politics somewhere else because that will get you banned here fast. Check the rules.

There are people here who own both mals and sheps, Then there are people who don't even have a dog at this point.

Lot's of leerburg fans.

Welcome.

Hi there and welcome to the forum!!! YES!!! Malinois owners, or any dog owner, or wanna-be dog owner is welcome to the forum. All we ask is that you read and comply with the forum rules. There is an "Announcement" link at the top of all forums that will take you to the board rules. One of these rules is no Political content, as it leads to too much conflict and dissent.

All discussion on dogs and training are welcome! We do have a few board members who own a malinois, or one of it's different coated cousins, so some good experienced people to share info with.

I don't know if these are Ivan's DVDs, but I bought his first 2 DVDs ($140 total) for my Malinois and they worked perfectly on her.

Basically, it's about communication and training in drive.

Canine Training Systems
This is the whole set, I only have 1 and 2 and that was enough to get a great start on my Mal.

I bought several of the Leerburg DVDs. They are okay, but I sold all of those. I will never sell my Ivan DVDs. I also took a seminar with Ivan and he is amazing at fixing problems quickly.

Welcome! Man, politics in an intro post?? Wish I could have seen what you wrote. I'm not sure how an intro post and politics could actually go hand in hand!

They were just saying that they wished I would run for office. I'm special that way.
