|Blitzkrieg1||My two cents... Get off youtube and go watch and train with some real dogs.. Its not black or white there is plenty of garbage and bs in both breeds. They are different dogs and have different strengths. Not sure what this thread is supposed to achieve.|

Just an awesome tribute. Love the GSD in the first clip.
Has some Mals/Dutchies in it.
The first clip of the Mal wasn't even behaving too well, he couldn't even bite down right.

|Baillif||Meh. I know a few mals stupid enough to do that kind of thing, but I know just as many who would either find the gate or go straight over the top of the fence.|

This is an old post from a police forum I had read, just wondering what those familiar with mals think of his description in this post? Here's a link to the thread as well. Belgian Malinois vs german shepherd...

I once experienced what I think is a good contrast of the breeds. One training day we had the agitator standing behind a chainlink fence with an open gate a few feet away. The fense was inside a building (Picture our usual wharehouse training locations) and it had a 6" pole on one side with about a 3" gap betweeen the pole and a wall. The dogs came from the pole side so the 3" gap is what they saw first. I agitated for most of it and we ran I think about 8 dogs through it. Half and half GSD and BM.
Every BM saw me through the 3" gap and shot straight at me. The pole stoppped forward progress and the BM started barking and crying. No matter what I did I could not get the BM off the gap and over to the open gate. I even walked to the open gate and waved at the dog. I had to finally walk out of the gate to get the dog to stop trying to force through the gap.
Every shephard looked at me saw the gap, looked around for the open gate, ran through the gate and made a chew toy out of me.
I think a lot of people think the BM bites harder but in my experience (4 years of agitating never a handler) the BM hits harder in a muzzle but the actual bite was a mixed bag, some GSD bit just as hard or harder, no real pattern either way. I think a BM is prbable liklier to stay on the bite while a GSD is likelier to corn cob or look for a bettter body part, which can lead to multiple bites.
