All about Boxer dogs

boxer_puppiesA Boxer puppy is a perfect companion for an active family. Boxer puppies can be stubborn and must be trained quickly and consistently - especially being taught very early on not to jump up- this will pay dividends later on!!

You will find Boxer dogs are friendly, energetic, inquisitive, devoted, loyal, outgoing and social and make lovely family pets - as long as you are prepared to put the effort in to the early training and  plenty of exercise.

The ancestors of Boxer dogs have been around since the 16th century. Selective breeding in Germany (by Georg Alt) in the late 1800's produced what we now know as the Boxer breed. They were originally bread as working dogs, used to guard livestock and baiting.

With their breeding origins in 'guarding' Boxers are natural protectors and will automatically incline to this devoted role. For this reason they do make good guard dogs.
