Pedigree and Breeding
The Belgian Malinios
The Belgian Malinois is a sturdy dog of square proportion with moderately heavy but oval bones. It is elegant, with a very proud head carriage. The overall impression is of power without bulkiness. The gait is smooth and easy, seemingly effortless rather than hard driving. Such a gait gives the impression of tirelessness. The Malinois tends to run in a wide circle rather than a straight line. Its coat is fairly short, straight, and hard, with a dense undercoat. Its expression is intelligent and questioning.
Intense best describes the Belgian Malinois. This is a high-energy breed with a need for regular mental and physical stimulation. It is alert, smart, and serious, an ideal watchdog and guard dog. It is aloof with strangers and can be aggressive toward other dogs and animals. Some can be domineering. It often runs in sweeping circles to stay on the move when confined. It is protective of its home and family.

The Dutch Shepherd
The breed is an old herding breed of Dutch origin. In the old days, shepherds and farmers needed a versatile dog, a jack-of-all-trades, with few demands and adapted to that time's harsh and meager existence.
True to its origins, the Dutch Shepherd Dog has established itself alongside well-known working breeds such as the German Shepherd and the Belgian Shepherd. The Dutch Shepherd Dog (Hollandse Herdershond for the Dutch) can be found herding sheep, guarding home and hearth, in rescue work, police work, and as drugs detection dogs in international ports and airports. Very loyal and reliable, always alert, watchful, active, independent, persistent, intelligent, prepared to be obedient, and gifted with the true shepherding temperament. The Dutch Shepherd Dog works willingly with its owner and deals independently with any task assigned to him. He is neither aggressive nor shy.
He has a strong character and independence passed down from his herding ancestry. In the Dutch Shepherd, we have the combination of a "nice housedog" and "afraid of nothing and nobody." Therefore the owner needs to be a strong and fair leader. While there is a potential for doing police work, care should be taken that it is not the dog's sole purpose, overshadowing its overall character.
While there is no perfect dog for everybody, the Dutch Shepherd needs an active life and an owner willing to commit to proper socialization and training.
K.N.P.V. Stands for: "Koninklijke Nederlandse Politiehond Vereniging, in English: Royal Dutch Police Dog Association. KNPV I, is the same as PHI (Police Dog I)
K.N.P.V. was founded in 1907 and had about 10,000 members in the Netherlands. The Board of the K.N.P.V. is seated in Amersfoort in the province of Utrecht. The Netherlands (Holland) is divided into eleven provinces, and K.N.P.V. is divided into the same eleven provinces. Each province has its board, and the boards of all the provinces represent all the members of the K.N.P.V. in the meetings of the Head Board of K.N.P.V.
"KNPV," seen as a suffix on the names of many Dutch dogs, is an abbreviation for "Koninklijke Nederlandse Politiehond Vereniging" or Royal Dutch Police Dog Association. This organization conducts police dog trials and offers certificates among the most coveted and respected worldwide. This test demands a dog of great character, physical strength, agility, and stamina. They are very heavy in protection work, involving distant attacks on a remote adversary who strikes the dog with a stick before he bites, and very realistic gun tests. The dog is required to take a man off a bicycle, the desired procedure being for the dog to take a leg or to leap high and grab the man's upper arm to avoid entanglement in the wheels. There is a search for dropped objects (typically 2 or 3 coins) rather than the tracking common in this country. Overall, the KNPV trial demands very hard, tough dogs.
The KNPV was founded in 1907, and today (1996) has about 10,000 members in the Netherlands. The KNPV Board of Directors is seated in Amersfoort in the province of Utrecht. The Netherlands is divided into eleven provinces. KNPV is also divided into these same provinces. Each province has its board, and the boards of all the provinces represent all the members of the KNPV in the meetings of the headboard of KNPV.
As of April 1994, there were 509 KNPV clubs in the Netherlands, 140 certified decoys, and 64 certified judges. Becoming a KNPV judge is very difficult, with a long series of challenging written and practical examinations. Each trial requires the services of three judges and two decoys.
In 1993, 695 dogs achieved the Police Dog One (PH-1) certificate, 82 dogs attained the PH-II certificate, 117 dogs made Objectbewakingshoud (Object protection, 21 dogs received a Reddingshound title, and four dogs their Speurhond (tracking) title. A dog may repeat an examination but must first turn in his current certificate. If he fails, he again becomes an uncertified dog. Repeat certification attempts are unusual, but sometimes a handler feels that his dog is better than the first score and is willing to take the risk.
The Police Dog One examination has a water exercise where the dog must swim across a canal on command and return on command. There is also a large object retrieval. Obedience is much less precise but more demanding than other sports. The dog must heel on and off the leash and beside a bicycle. There is a food refusal, an exercise where a dog must remain quiet during the gunfire, a one-meter (39-inch) hedge jump, a 2.25-meter ditch jump, and a 1.75-meter wooden wall.
The protection exercises include a guard of the object, an object search in the woods, a person search in the woods, and transport of prisoners. There is a long attack in which the dog is struck with a long stick before the bite, a call back from a long attack, an attack against the gun, and a long attack to stop a person fleeing on a bicycle.
Every year in May, July, and October, the KNPV puts on certification tests. The Head Board of the KNPV and the board of each province organize these certifications. With enough dogs, each province can have its certification in each of these months. Normally, you do your certification in your province. The Head Board of the KNPV chooses the decoys and the judges, who never come to work in the province they live in for a test.
Every year in June, the 10 highest-scoring dogs from the last three certification tests go to the National Trial for "Object Guarding" or Objectbewakingshoud. This trial is normally held in the city of Oostebeek in the eastern part of the country. Every year on the first Saturday of September, the 10 highest-scoring PH-1 dogs are invited to the National PH-1 trial. Before the National Trial, the 10 dogs must have done their certification test in May or July. This means a dog can only once compete for the most coveted police dog in one national championship.
For this reason, many of the best dogs are held back a year or even two to have a shot at every KNPV trainer's dream, the national championship. From this, we can see that the KNPV is much less of a sport than Schutzhund, where a dog can compete many times. This also means that a titled dog has value only as a police dog, commercial guard dog, or personal protection dog and as a breeding resource; there is no "used dog market" for trained and titled animals to be taken back into KNPV competition. (Some dogs are converted for Schutzhund, but given the age of the dogs and the differences in training and trial procedures, they very seldom become championship-level competitors in a new sport.)
Every year on the first Friday in September, the 12 best PH-Il dogs compete in the PH-II Championship. The highest-scoring dog from each of the 11 provinces, plus the National Champion from the previous year, is invited. These trials are always in the city of Den Bosch. KNPV is the most popular, and the competition the most intense, in the southern provinces of the Netherlands, such as Limburg and Brabant.
