If you use only the harness to walk, and only put on tags for walks and whatnot, why not keep tags on harness, and forget collar all together

My female is very independent in her own way and very bossy and stubborn. My male is the biggest baby you'll ever meet. Talk about a sissy pants! LOL.

I grew up in a family where all we owned was females. At one point we had 3 females in the house and we never had any issues. And we've always had at least two females int he house with no problems. And I know typicaly if the males are fixed, there isn't issues. I think it mostly depends on each dog and how you establish yourself as "leader".

I had 3 females and a male at one point... Pug pugs crosses and a cocker. They all got along great. Now I have 2 females a pug cross and a boxer. No issues either .. Other than the boxer wants to play more than the pug. All my dogs have been fixed. I am also getting another female boxer in the spring.... Mostly because they are smaller in size.

I have two girls and a boy my male is laid back and easygoing my one female is slightly demanding but overall pretty laid back too but then we get to my Alpha female who is an attention hog, a sass pot, and generally ornery , who has a high prey drive to boot so I guess it really depends on the dog and same or different sex hasn't really mattered at my house

I think if you correct aggression two females or males of different of same breed can get along happily. You as the alpha leader of your pack can help choose which dog should be dominant and usually every one will fall into their place in the pack, good luck with your decision.
I currently have a 7yo female mini schnauzer. And am adding a female boxer pup to the family. Sounds like our situation is similar. How did you correct the behavior of the older dog snapping?

I have a mini schnauzer who's 8th birthday is today yes, granted we have a male boxer puppy, but my aunt has 7 little maltese and one of the females is my schnauzer's best friend. My girl is completely submissive and that is actually the prob we have w her and the boxer. He rams her up into walls and against the couch and licks her incessantly and is pretty rough with her and she would rather get hurt than to tell him off. I've never heard her growl. Sometimes she screams and we alway have to keep a close eye on them together but I've never had them get into it before. I just hope he calms down so he doesn't hurt her

In my experience with boxers I've found that the females tend to me more bitchy, reactive and nasty, and the males tend to be more laid back and easy going goofs. Of course there are exceptions to this, and it's in no way a rule, it's just what I've experienced. If I were to get another boxer it would definitly be male because my female Aspen is a bitch and I would like a more laid back and easy going dog! Aspen does perfectly fine living and playing with other female dogs of any breed once she gets to know them, she doesn't like any dog that's a stranger to her.

Your schnauzer sounds exactly like my hailey. She's so submissive and docile. She also had a massive spinal stroke and doesn't move well. But she's great with the cat. So I'm hoping a puppy will give her more energy.

I have always had females dogs and thus far have had two female Boxers(not at the same time) and I think my next dog will be a neutered male. Both the female Boxers I have had are bitchy, stubborn, high prey drive and werent/arent dog friendly. Of course like others have said it depends on the dog Im sure

If you are really leaning toward a male, the good news is that if you bring him into your household & family as a young pup - your Boston may always be fine with him. I own two unneutered male Boxers, four & three yrs. old respectively & they get along fabulously & even still play together. I believe however, if I waltzed into the house with an adult male (particularly unneutered) there might eventually be an issue despite the fact that, as with you, neither of my boys pick fights with other boys...but living under the same roof can be a different matter.

So you are at an advantage if you bring him home as a baby & introduce them properly. And beyond that, a whole lot depends on the individual temperament of each dog. If your pup isn't "alpha" &neither is your Boston, once again, they may end up being buds.

Lastly, I had a very alpha Boxer bitch who was brought in as an adult to our home with my very alpha Bernese Mountain Dog male (now passed sadly) ---- the two LOATHED one another & after two fights, I had to make arrangements to keep them separated. So........no one can tell you for sure. You may be just fine. Only time will tell. Good luck.
