To any owners here, that know what its like to own/work/know well both of these breeds, i have a question.
I have had 2 GSD's. The first was my OH's when we got together years ago. It was sedate, adult. Loved a walk, a bit of a digger, well behaved.
My current dog is like a different species alltogether, it too is GSD, but working parents. And im familiar with rottie show line and working line differences, and they too are vast.
Ive never owned, or known an owner of a mallinois. Can someone who knows both breeds tell me, how much more hectic would a mallinois be? How full on in comparison to a working GSD?
or are they the same?
they look magnificent, and i wonder if im capable enough to own one and train one. Is having Bernie easier, or would it be harder than this? Im not getting another dog, im just curious.
When i read what people say GSD's are like in the home, i figure, mines not like that as he's worked daily. As leave his walk out, and the he starts stealing washing off lines etc.
