    Hi Johan,

    If you live near a soccer field and you anticipate this being a challenge I would first avoid the soccer field and ball as much as possible and give her a different outlet, such as throwing smaller kong balls for her.  Then, I would at the very least do phase 2 obedience and teach her that the soccer ball in the field is not an option.  As long as you play ball with her before or after your walks I think she will be able to accept this.  Malinois, as you know, are very high drive working breed so if not giving the opportunity to quench their drive they will find an inappropriate outlet.. such as stealing soccer balls 🙂
