looking to get Belgian Mal to train as a family / protection k-9. any insight on owning one i would get professional training. research goes both ways. i also wanted to purchase my pup from Ivan Balabanov here in Florida, but i would have to be placed on a 12 month waiting period. found a pup from Birgit Hall, European Beigian Malinois but i cant find any reviews online. has anyone heard of her? I just had to put down my GSP.....due to illness. He was trained as a protection / search k-9.
