NEEDS OF A BOXER
A BOXER is a wonderful medium sized family dog. He/she will be a great companion and friend to you and your children. He is an active dog and WILL NEED VERY STRICT TRAINING for the first year of his life. This will require one training session a week for you and your family and 10 minutes a day reinforcement training. If you don't have the time for this training then do not get a Boxer!
He will enthusiastically welcome most people you invite into your home but can be very
reserved if he feels distrustful of certain individuals. Therefore he will make an excellent watch dog, his looks and barking will scare off any intruder, although little do they know that he is a "pussy cat" at heart!
He can be stubborn and aggravating then turn around and delight and entertain you with his playful antics and exuberance for life. He will play gently
with the young children, rough-house with the adults, then stand over you as if to say "come on you guys, I am just getting started". You can hurt his feelings
easily by the tone of your voice or by ignoring him. Love him and your love will be returned ten fold. Anyone who does not love a BOXER does not know a BOXER.
The BOXER is definitely NOT an "outdoor" breed! If he would not be allowed to live in the house as part of your family you would be better to choose another more independent breed! A BOXER does not have the coat needed for the cold winter and because of their shorter muzzle, they do not tolerate the heat of summer.
They must be protected from the elements, always. Besides, they would be broken hearted if they couldn't be with their people - sharing the sofa or easy chair and your nibbles,
as you all watch TV in the evening.
