12 Realities New Boxer Owners Must Learn To Accept

Boxers can be fine family dogs if you can provide enough exercise and training to control their rambunctiousness when young, and if you can provide for their special needs due to their unnaturally short face.

As puppies and young adults, Boxers are animated, playful (often cuckoo!) dogs who love to romp and jump.

Middle-aged Boxers typically become more deliberate and dignified and make calm, loyal companions for the rest of their (unfortunately not very long) lives.

Though most Boxer dogs are fine with other family pets, including the family cat, quite a few Boxers are dominant or aggressive toward other dogs of the same sex, and some are cat chasers.

If you are considering to own a boxer, or you’ve just become a new boxer owner, there are some realities you do need to fully accept.

  1. Can definitely relate,so true, they have their own personality. I’ve only had 1 dog so far & she was a boxer, she was my sidekick. The best with kids & animals. Can’t wait to have another.

  2. I have over the years three male boxers all of which had completely different characters. The first was very submissive and probably a good thing for our first dog of this breed now the second was totally different and quite dominant but very protective of me too much sometimes but the third boxer was bang on which could have been experienced now with the training we had got it right, although breeding must be brought into the equation also. Do your homework I advise.

  3. We put up with farts that make you nose fall off your face,slobber that almost drowns you and the fact that they are any were from 75lbs to 110lbs lap dog and I wouldn’t change a thing about them because of all the LOVE you get in return.
