Hey everybody! I'm really excited to be getting my puppy boxer in a few mire weeks. I'm new to boxers and I'm fascinated with them. Any beginner tips you can share with me.

Congrats!
get ready for some of the best years of your life. Boxers just make life grand.
Be sure to get a crate so you can crate train asap! One of the first things I got for my first boxer were sleigh bells. I hung them from the door knob to the back door, and she learned quickly to ring them with her nose when she needed to go out potty. I was very surprised how easy it was to train a Boxer.

Welcome from Ontario Canada, What a cutie! I agree with Lillysdad I recommend crate training. Other then that I think the most important things you need, would be love and patience! I promise she will make you laugh!

I have a 5 month old and my top 5 things would definetely be:
1. Patients
2. Patients
3. Patients
4. Patients
And lastly
5. Patients

I'm not by any means saying there bad dogs. They just can be very stubborn at times. By far the best breed of dog that I've ever been around.

I would also say the first things you want to try and teach is no biting, sit, stay and lay down. I've found that sit and stay are very useful when your feeding so they don't try eating as your filling the bowl. Not sure if your going to be able to do it right away but it's just a bit of helpful info.
