Do Belgian Malinois Get Separation Anxiety?

Yes, Belgian Malinois get separation anxiety. This breed was bred to spend long days working alongside farmers to control livestock.

Belgian Malinois are naturally sociable, so they are not well-adapted to being left alone for long periods without the companionship of their human family.

A Belgian Malinois will not be able to handle being left alone for more than 2-4 hours each day. This breed will become destructive, chew and dig to relieve its frustration because of its isolation and inactivity after four hours.

If you work full-time outside the home, or travel regularly, a Belgian Malinois is not the best breed for you.
