Has anybody tried to use a Boxer as a service dog? Hopefully if all turns out, Ares will become one. Fom what I've been told, they sound like the would make great ones. Just curious to see if anyone has done it.
:wink: Isis is deaf and an INCREDIBLE autism service dog for our 5 year old autistic son. and actually being deaf helps alot because there are no noise distractions. She is VERY aware and alert even asleep.
she is so willing to learn and loves to please
I don't know why german shepherds are so popular with police, belgian malinois are being used more too.. but while I agree that boxers are capable of doing a great job- they probably can't take the heat as well in many locations. I remember seeing a special on tv about training police dogs, and even the GSD were overheating.
