Boxer Dog Training: The Most Common Issues with Boxer Puppies
Boxer Dog Training
Owning a dog is a big commitment and you should know what is involved in owning your Boxer and getting the most out of your relationship with him. Boxers are loving and lovable and if you treat him right, you will both have hours of pleasure together.
Boxers are intelligent and full of energy so you will need good training skills to show them who is boss. Otherwise, they will be more than willing to take the lead – literally! They also need lots of exercise so don’t get a Boxer if you find it hard to get up off the sofa. Look on the bright side, you will be as fit as a flea in no time and have a super-toned body and svelte silhouette.
This book teaches you – not your dog, as many dog owners think – how to train your Boxer with rewards rather than punishment. Your Boxer wants to please you but he is begging out for guidance from a leader. He has joined your pack, not the other way round. Using consistency and firm but kind guidelines, you will make a friend for life who will always be happy to see you and love you no matter what.
However, you should also be aware that Boxers quite often have a shorter lifespan than some other dogs and are prone to certain diseases. This book will tell you what to look out for and what you should be asking the breeder or kennels you get your Boxer from. Some diseases are inherited from their parents and a good breeder will supply you with this information.
Every dog is different, but Boxers do have generic traits and behavior that you can be aware of by reading this book. Hopefully, you have bought it before you get your Boxer. In any event, it will be useful in the training and care of your dog.
I hope you enjoy your time together.
