The Boxer Dog Breed Profile

Jun 17, 2008
You know that any new addition to your home, especially a puppy, needs plenty of attention and be cared for extensively. Before purchasing a live household member, get the facts about their routine, their everyday life and their traits. If you don't, you may regret getting the puppy later. Mull over these things before your purchase:

First thing - learn about the puppy's distinguishing traits and their conduct. If they have a lifestyle that is vastly different from your own, you may want to try to find another puppy. Boxer puppies want someone to pay attention to them at all times. If they aren't, they'll try to get it by doing something naughty. Puppies that are lonely and bored can become ill. Try to give it regular exercise to avoid any emotional and physical pain.

Second thing - boxer puppies like to live life carefree and may wander around aimlessly. Since they can be so active, it would be in your best interest to move any valuables from his/her path. Boxers make wonderful buddies for young children. While having babies/toddlers in the same room with boxers is fine, never leave them unattended together. The boxer may accidentally hurt the child.

Third thing - boxers are sociable and want to be around people and other animals. It is a very good trait to have in animals so you want to encourage that. When he/she is a puppy, introduce them to tons of people and pets. You want the socialization to be with the right kind of people so your puppy can know the difference as he/she matures.

Fourth thing - If it seems your puppy is very shy, get him/her socialization as soon as possible. Take him/her places with you including the pet store. Keep in mind that two females in the same household are a bit much because female boxers are quite antagonistic.

Fifth thing - Boxers make wonderful pets; but like humans, they do have some bad qualities. They can get stubborn if they are not shown the right way on how to act. Be sure to place your puppy in some sort of obedience training class. You want the best for him/her and you.

Sixth thing - Be sure to give your puppy all the exercise he needs to burn off those energy levels. If you don't, you could have a rather destructive puppy on your hands. Take them for walks, give him space to run around and be sure you play with him/her at the same time.
