I was just curious about this.I have never actually heard of anyone using a boxer for any type of working dog.I figured since they are a working dog I would ask this question.

There are many Boxers that are service dogs, police dogs, therapy dogs, I know some that work cattle, and a few (including one of my grand-pups) that herd sheep (for sport, though, not as an actual job).  Most people don't have a need for a working dog these days, so the Boxer is not used as extensively for that purpose as they once were, but the ability is there and is used in many cases. :)

My Lilly is a Hearing Alert Dog.  She has been training since she was 4 weeks old (first thing she started learning was recall).  Lilly's breeder started her training and when I was blessed with her, I continued her training.  She is a "golden child".  She has saved my life several times.

BTW:
I am a professional trainer.
