Boxer Dog Training
Legend says when God was fashioning different breeds of dog out of clay, he came to his
final task and decided to create the most beautiful dog ever and call it a ‘Boxer’. But this new
breed of dog was vain and rushed to see himself in the mirror before the clay was properly set and bumped headlong
into his own reflection. That accounts for the flat nose characteristic of the Boxer, and also proves that God
really did accomplish his design for the world’s most beautiful dog!
The Boxer is an amazing dog and is extremely playful, energetic and definitely a handful
(in a good way of course). This breed if dog is extremely loyal and when a friendship is built it
lasts forever. The boxer is unique and not for everyone, if you are a new owner of a boxer you have to be aware
that they need a lot of attention and training. They are extremely intelligent dogs, which can work to your
advantage when it comes to training, but then again can be very disadvantageous, as they know how to use their
intelligence to get what they want.
Boxer dog training consists of training them up to become
guard dogs; this is their main profession if you like. People who do not know boxers tend to assume
that they are naturally aggressive when they are in fact the opposite and could not be more playful than any
other dog! Because of their good stature and aggressive look, people are automatically

Because of their intelligence, Boxers can be very
stubborn but when it comes to training a boxer, it can be very helpful. Owners must remember that
there will be times when you ask him to do something and he’s going to look you in the face and basically tell
you where to go, he knows he is supposed to do what you are telling him but he decides he can't be bothered and
doesn’t. The main thing you have to remember in these circumstances is to be
patient. From as early as 6 weeks old you should start your boxer dog training as this will
help him when he grows up, socialize him, play with him and teach him, but do it in an exciting way and he is
more likely to listen.
The main aspect of training for a boxer is
socialization. Boxers can be very friendly dogs but they need to be trained to become
one. They need to get accustomed to other dogs and people. The best way to
do this is training classes. That way your boxer will be trained alongside other dogs.
When your boxer reaches 13-16 weeks old it's time for
some serious boxer dog training, this is the stage where he is going to test for dominance, he will nip and try
to show you that he is the more dominant one, mainly by not listening to you. You have to be a
strong leader at this time; you must show him that bad behaviours will not be tolerated no matter what!
Boxers are genuinely a lovable family dog and would make
a proud pet for anyone, they are dogs that prefer to sit on your lap for a cuddle than anything
else. Train your boxer early with some serious boxer dog training and you can be assured you will
have a stunning, loyal family friend!
