Welcome from Texas. I'm pretty new to the forum too. We got Frankie when he was 8 weeks old and he'll be 16 weeks tomorrow. crate training is definitely the way to go and it sounds like your off to a good start. As for the chewing we've been taking Frankie to puppy classes (he actually graduates next Monday) and they taught us leave it. Basically you put something in front of the puppy that you don't want him to have and when he goes for it you put your hand or foot in front of him and tell him with a stern voice "Leave it!" and keep repeating that until he completely ignores it. When it ignores it you give him a treat or if you're going to do clicker training you give him a click. It's been working amazingly well with Frankie. The trainer also told us to only use that command with things the puppy can never have not things he can. Training has been awesome. Frankie can sit, lie down, stay, come when called, shake and walk on a loose leash. It does take patience but this breed is eager to please and very smart and picks up on things rather quickly. Good luck and congrats on the new baby. Brand new boxer puppy added to my family. Could use some suggestions too.-imageuploadedbypg-free1357704924.650719.jpg

Obedience training has been the best investment ever. It's so much fun and he'a so well behaved. I'm one proud mama and he's seems so happy

The mom and dad were both boxers so I figured as much. I didn't get him from a legitimate breeder because they didn't have papers for them or him. I'm taking him to the vet later this week and ill know a little more about him after. I'll keep you guys posted?

Welcome to the forums, I'm glad you found us but....

This puppy is not 9 weeks old. Where did you get it from?

There is no way it is 9 weeks old in those pics....... Looks more like 5 or 6 weeks..... or it's not pure bred.

Keep us posted on what the vet says! He's awful cute!

I agree. You might want to double check his age with the vet. This was my girl at 8 weeks. Brand new boxer puppy added to my family. Could use some suggestions too.-imageuploadedbypg-free1357751106.608158.jpg
