Rathain Working Malinois

Rathain – Pedigree breeder for Working Malinois

I am very excited to announce a planned mating with Shelby (Belgenbeau Dragon Heart) and Nordenstamm Yes scheduled for late 2017. This is a ‘real’ working line Malinois litter, with both dogs being proven performers in a number of dog sports. There are many so-called ‘working Malinois’ breeders, but often the dogs don’t actually ‘work’, meaning they are not being trained or even compete by their owners in dog sports of any kind. That also means their working capabilities and temperament have not been tested in a way that dogs, that are competing and measuring up against the best in the country, are being tested every year.

This planned litter is outstanding in that both dogs, Shelby and Yessie are both working and competing against the best in Australia at the moment. Some of their achievements are listed below.

“I just love this dog” – Forrest Micke (US

“Super grip, super nerves, a really great dog” – Jogi Zank (Germany)\

Yessie is a very balanced dog with great construction, muscular and athletic. He also has an ‘off-switch’ and a pleasant temperament around people and other dogs. The main reason I chose this dog as a sire for Shelby is that they both have an outstanding temperament, a great willingness to work and physical attributes that make them perfectly suited to dog sports of any kind.
