Boxer Dogs

Boxer DogsChoosing boxer dogs for your family pet may or may not be a good thing to do. If you are wondering if this pet is right for you and your needs, take some time to carefully look at what he can offer. You may be surprised to find out that he fits right into your life. Or, if not, it is better that you know this now before you choose a pet that will not be happy with you (or you will not be happy with him!)

Here are some things that you will want to know about this breed of dog.

Exercise. The Boxer needs his exercise. This comes as both from physical exercise as well as being mentally challenged. Most dogs will need to spend time outdoors, walking and running and the Boxer is no different. In fact, you should plan at least a walk a day with your pet. As for mental challenge, your pet will need to learn tricks, play games and be taught how to behave. You should spend time doing these things if you plan to have a happy and healthy pet.

The Boxer can be temperamental when it comes to temperature. He likes to be in about 70 degree temperatures. He does not like cold weather nor does he tolerate extreme heat. If you plan to take him hunting, make sure that the temperature is right for him or he will not be agreeable.

They are playful and excitable animals. The Boxer is going to give you a run for your money. They enjoy playing and having fun. If you are looking for a serious dog, then this may not be the right pet for you. If you wan to have a fun loving pet, then you will love this personality.

Aggression is not something the Boxer has a lot of. He is a big dog and can be intimidating. And, if he is guarding his family, he most certainly will defend them. But, he is not really a guard dog. He is not going to be aggressive enough to handle guard duties. Most importantly, he really will not take on this type of training either.

For those pet owners with children, you will find that the Boxer is ideal to be with them. You will need to train the dog to listen and obey your commands. You will need to tell him what proper behavior with the children is as well. Most Boxers will cater to even small children in an effort to get them to play with him.

Finally, make sure that you have enough room for your dog. These dogs are large and can get up to 60 pounds or more. It is necessary, then, to provide for them the right amount of room to play and run.

The Boxer dog can be an ideal pet for many. But, if you can not provide for it all that it needs, then look for a dog that you can. You do not want to have a dog you can not take care of. Most individuals that have the likings for this type of dog will enjoy him.
