Are you using an e collar on her? It looked like in some videos you were so I was just wondering.

These are the three biggest I can find, but also on facebook, for instance in my area there is an Rockwall Texas: My Town group, so check to see if there is a group in your neighborhood, where you can speak to one another and ask if anyone else has a Malinois who would want to socialize with you and your dog.

I am very impressed with your work you did on your sweet baby and would love to stay in contact with you for advice.

Socializing is going as well as it can for now... he has not had all his shots (2.5 more weeks until last round!) so I am hesitant to take him to too many places as of now. He can be a HUGE rough player with other dogs but he is always nice and playful, never fearful. He also LOVES people. He will run and leap into anyone's arms and smother them in face kisses. He has been exposed to almost everything. He has swam, we live in a big city with lots of noise such as a train right by my house and he has grown accustomed to all types of people, sounds, etc. So those are good signs. I am trying to teach him to be a but more gentle with other dogs though. I am getting him into a puppy class in the next month!

I want him as a pet, but I definitely want to get into some sport with him. I was thinking agility but have not looked into Mondioring.. i will begin researching that now!! Do you know of the place you used in Oklahoma City?
I want to do protection dog training with him SO bad but I sadly cannot afford that kind of training right now. Most are running at about $10,000 to start with.
LOL, that's so funny

Look up Red Dirt Ringer, they are in Oklahoma City, that's the group we trained with.

Your little one sounds just like my Mal! She used to want to greet every single person/dog we saw during walks. She is still very people and dog-friendly, but now understands that we don't need to say "hi" to everyone

For socialization, as a puppy, we only allowed her to interact with dog-neutral dogs on purpose. We didn't want her to think of other dogs as playmates. It depends on what your goal is, we wanted her to become more or less dog-neutral as an adult.

We dabbled in agility for a little bit, mainly for her exposure. Mondioring takes a lot of commitment, but if you can find the time to do it, it is a lot of fun. My club member wasn't kidding when he said Mondioring is not a dog sport, it is a lifestyle, LOL.

Mondioring is a protection sport, but that's different from personal protection training. Find a good club and they can guide you in the right direction base on your puppy's temperament and drives.

Yes, we have 2 GSDs and her, all of them are e-collar trained. But most of our training is motivational, all of her foundation is done via clicker/marker/shaping and luring.

Look up Michael Ellis, our training is very Michael Ellis-based.
