Lol perhaps its flooding in every sense of the word.

This is just the beginning, the older they get the crazier it gets.

I have seen Mal pups that age sent to swim across a body of water with fire/smoke pots floating in it with a decoy waiting to give them a bite on the other side.

Heard of another euro breeder that has a lot of high end mals that takes her pups out into a lake in a boat and dumps them over the side so they have to swim for shore.

GSD vs Malinois?

These are dogs bred for work. What matters is the perform a job from age 2-6. The guys performing training don't worry to much about potential damage they are doing. Whilst I do think that sort of stuff is extreme I wouldn't risk that with my 8 week old.
We as "pet" owners care about our pup. Dogs bred specifically for a job will risk it.

The mal is more robust than the gsd, it is also lighter and matures at a slower rate. So you can go a little harder on them whilst younger.

GSD vs Malinois?

So this video came up on my FB today:

https://m.facebook.com/story.php?sto...31817526895342

My first thought was it seems a little high impact for puppies (regardless of breed)...but then the comments said that Mals don't need the extra care like GSDs because they don't have the hip problems, is this true?

I always thought low impact was recommended for any medium sized dog and up at least until they are a bit older. Can someone enlighten me?
