Boxers are known for their boxy, muscular frame but extremely friendly personality. They are very playful with a super high energy and intensity level, so they need a lot of exercise. These dogs are also very intelligent and easy to train, but should not be reprimanded harshly because they are also very sensitive dogs. They prefer for the training to be fun and do not like to be bossed around. Boxers will shed a lot but are very easy to groom although they do drool a lot and snore. Very alert, they make attentive watch dogs. Especially if well socialized early on, they do very well with children and are initially wary of strangers but then very friendly. Boxers are not suited to live outdoors and don’t handle extreme weather very well. Due to their build and how strong they are, it is very important to train them early on as puppies to ensure they grow to be friendly, well behaved and socialized dogs.
Boxers have a short coat of fur overtop a muscular frame and have actually been known to groom themselves, so they are relatively easy to care for in this regard. Although they are generally healthy dogs, they are prone to weight gain and their food should be monitored. The two different colors of Boxers are called fawn and brindle, and can have varying amounts of white markings. Making grooming such as caring for their teeth, paws, and fur as a puppy will make handling them as an adult much easier and a simpler process. Overall Boxers are extremely playful and although they look tough are actually very loving dogs!
