Shedding is a problem that almost all dog owners have to put up with to some degree. It all depends on the type of coat that your dog has and their general health and well-being.

The Belgian Malinois is a handsome dog that not all families are familiar with. The breeding, looks and purpose of this dog mean we end up comparing stats on Belgian Malinois vs German Shepherd.
The German Shepherd certainly ranks and the most popular of the two, at #2 in the American Kennel Club ratings of popularity compared to #51 for the Malinois.
