One way is, when he looks at you, give him some food.
Another way is have a ball stuck to your chest area, so the dog is watching this and it heels along and the reward is the ball.
Another way is 'the path to the bite is through the handler'. The dog looks at you and you give him a command to go and bite decoy. This is simple bite obedience. Dogs who love biting soon realize they get to do it when they focus on the handler.
Another way is the dog anticipating a command. It realizes the command comes from the handler and begins to watch for clues.
Basically these are just simple techniques but I think really great trainers with dogs with great focus, develop this focus since the dogs are young. They have the whole system planned and have different stages of training and the end product is a highly trained dog. It is not due to any magic technique but a collection of techniques, understanding, knowledge and a good dog.

Hi every one, I think before anything im just plain out gonna go find a SchH club get a feel of it and go on from there. Thanks
( One thing for SchH trainers) How do you get your dog to Focus on you at all times she knows Watch me" Off leash but not on what would be the best way for this ) Already had some excellent advice but would like any more opinions. Thanks

Have you ever trained a dog in drive using a tug to stimulate prey drive and shape obedience? You sound very green and you might want to start with a decent workingline GSD. THe other problem is you are not likely to have the connections to get a quality Malinois.

|lhczth||Go out and spend time with a LOT of dogs from both breeds and talk to people who have handled and trained both breeds (I mean multiple people). I will never own one.|

|Skye~||Either way both breeds for working can be not so good. Or Perfect but the main point is im not sure which MAY ( Key word ) Fit my life style better if i get a high energy GSD GREAT i would absolutely LOVE to have one but i adore the Malinois aswell.|

The showlines are, no argument there.
Working Tervs tend to have much more moderate coats. I LOVE THEM THEY ARE SO BEAUTIFUL
...but yeah, to the extent my husband gets a vote (which ain't much), I'm sure he'd rather deal with a Mal, since "no third dog" is not an option.

BTW- Tervs are just too hairy!
