Belgian Malinois are known for their herding abilities, though their energy and stamina make them content with any sort of physical activity. These work dogs especially enjoy outdoor tasks, and with their smart, friendly personalities, you'll want to join them. Here are 10 reasons your exercise buddy should be a Belgian Malinois.

1. They have a reward system; if you go on a run with them, they'll sweep your yard.
