Boxer Puppy Training Tips and Much Much More

Apr 22, 2008
When you decide to make the leap and get a puppy, you didn't realize that you were actually getting a child. Like children, puppies need to be taught and socialized. Being cute and cuddly, they can still make their fair share of mischief, and if not trained properly, the will grow up into a less than cuddly full-grown dog.

Since you have your heart set on a boxer, let's take a few minutes to learn about boxer puppy training. One of the main things that you will want to teach your puppy is to listen to you. This is where a lot of trouble starts. When a dog does what he pleases no matter what you say, he needs help and so do you.

If you want to establish a good relationship between you and your puppy, you will want it to be the best. In order to establish that kind of relationship, you will need to start early. It is essential that a puppy listen, and he will if he is rewarded for good behavior. As time passes, he will continue to listen sometimes because he thinks he'll be getting a treat.

This is fine to start out but cut down on them as he learns more and do not give him a treat every time. Taking your puppy out and around the neighborhood will give him a chance to explore his new home. Let him meet the neighbors, children included, so he will get used to being around people.

Establishing the rules and then enforcing them is the key to good boxer puppy training. If you stray from his normal routine, know that he will have the same reaction as children have when distracted. He will tend to forget what he is supposed to be doing.

A good idea is to have an area of your home that belongs to the puppy. It will be where he is sent for time outs when he misbehaves. For this reason, it needs to be somewhere quiet and private. It will also be where you keep his toys, his bed, preferably, and a place where he can use as his retreat. Keeping his toys in something that you can put away when he is in time out is important.

One of the main problems people have when training a puppy is teaching them what they can and cannot chew. Puppies, as everyone well knows, love to chew and chew they will. On anything they find handy. This is another reason for having an area that is totally his. It is free of anything that belongs to you and if he chews on anything it will belong to him.

If you catch him chewing your shoes or favorite sweater, take immediate action. Scold him and replace the items with something that is his. A toy or bone will do, and when he gets the idea and takes, reinforce the good behavior with lots of praise. This lets him know that when he was chewing on your shoes, you were displeased, and when he chews on his toy, that's just fine. You will develop a special relationship with your new puppy that will last a lifetime, if you take the time to make rules in the beginning and then consistently enforce them.
