Boxers are extremely intelligent and loyal, with a temperament suitable for all ages. They are not agressive, but naturally protective, making them an excellent family pet.
The boxer is a medium size breed with a deep muscled chest and square head. Being very strong the Boxer shoud combine power with elegance.
Boxers are very people oriented and will want to be with you whenever possible. They are a high energy dog and require a commitment from their people to provide a balanced daily routine of exercise as befitting their age and capabilities.
As mentioned earlier Boxers are extremely intelligent and need mental and physical stimulation. If you fail to provide this your puppy will make his own mischief. Puppy obedience classes are highly recommended.
When training your puppy be firm, and consistant but not harsh. Boxers do not respond well to physical discipline.
Maintaining your dogs health is not simply a matter of exercise. Feeding a high quality food such as First Mate, Acana or Origin (all ultra premium Canadian made dog foods with a variety of grain free blends) will provide all the nutrition your dog needs.
Choose a veterinarian like you would a pediatrician. Finding someone who is knowledgable about the breed will go a long way in providing your dog with the quality of life he deserves. As with any breed of dog, routine health care maintenance is important. Boxers are allergic to Atravet!
Boxers should never be purchased on impulse. Be sure to research the breed by reading books and asking questions. A reputable breeder is always willing to take the time to answer all your questions and offer support before and after the puppy leaves their home. When puchasing a puppy, follow the advice given by your breeder.
