Boxers Make Great Family Dogs
A breed of dog called a Boxer is very family-oriented and they always love to be around people. Treat them as family members. Never underestimate their need for human companionship, which is the most notable trait of this breed.
The Boxer is happiest when it is with people. Its whole pelvis moves when a Boxer wags its tail in delight and exhilaration. It can adapt to any environment as long as it is with people.
They love being with their "families" and don't like to be alone. Include them in your gatherings when company is around.
They love to be your shadow. Boxers are intelligent and are quite capable of participating in many family adventures.
Boxer dogs are like humans and they need lots of love to feel like a part of the family.
Accept them for what they are and give them time to show how loyal they can be. They are very sensitive animals too so never hit them.
Boxers Work Well With Kids
Boxers are gentle with children. Boxers love to play and are always ready for a romp or game, "...so make sure you have kids," said one owner.
Introduce the Boxer to the children early, as this will bond the Boxer and child together and help prevent jealousy from either one. You will find the Boxer will be more protective towards that child it grew up with as well.Some owners found their Boxers love to be around children more than adults.
They are good-natured, accept friendly strangers and will calmly suffer the pokes and prods of children.
Boxers are also accepting toward other family pets.
One owner said: "My girl Boxer is wonderful to my daughter's little half-rat terrier puppy. She lets the very hyper puppy do whatever to her and they even sleep together."
