I can only speak from the experiences we have here in Holland. as a K9 handler(active duty Dutch Sheperd!) and trainer. In active duty here in Holland we only have Mailinois or Dutch sheperds(maybe one or two GSD nationwide!). At the moment there are more and more good hard GSD and gain back slowly their territory at KNPV-clubs and not only VH and Schutzhund-programs. We even had several GSd from showlines that where trained eand examined at KNPV standerds that we sold to foreign policeforces. But Malinois and Dutch sheperds will be here in Holland always be the most wanted working dog for active duty.
But I think the USA bought through the years a lot of dogs from us(Holland especially Malinois!) who where not that impressive at work and thoughness. But they people who bought them paid such price and wasn't always aware of what they we're buying. Through the years i think your training standards are better and have a better gene-pool of both(GSd and Malinois) so stop paying such high prices for our dogs and get a good breeding program.
And at the end, they choice for GSd or Malinois is up to the handler. I had several of both and they we're both reliable , hard dogs who would never back out on me when it comes to it!
Sorry for muy poor English( just a Dutch man!!!)
