Congratulations.Hi I'm new here. I'm getting a new male sealed boxer pup next week. Any tips people.
I feel bad taking him from his mom but I know he will have great life with us.
The biting and jumping is pretty much par for the course with most dog's. But the driving you "Nut's??" Yeah that is kinda sorta a "Boxer," Breed characteristic?? And most likely to be found in Malinois also ... AKA Mali-Gators.... but some days I'm exhausted when my daughter and husband get home from work I just want some peace and quiet. I put him outside hes walked regularly and has so many toys and things to chew on. Any suggestions and how long before they settle down.
Our boys mellowed more when they were around 2. Tundra faster, Jax a little slower. Bandit is 2.5 years old and still has a lot of boxer energy. He loves to play still.Well we have had Jaxx for two and a half months now and I have to say its been challenging. Hes at the stage where hes jumping and biting me every chance he gets. His teeth are starting to fall out now so I'm contributing it to that but some days I'm exhausted when my daughter and husband get home from work I just want some peace and quiet. I put him outside hes walked regularly and has so many toys and things to chew on. Any suggestions and how long before they settle down.
LOL the "Knee thing!"Well my boy learned pretty quickly that jumping and biting were a no no. From day one we taught off, a knee lift into their chest cured that pretty quick. .
Glad things are going better. Routine is really helpful. It is fun to see them with new experiences. Our youngest boxer will stay out in the snow if we'd let him. He loves playing in it.Thanks for all the advice. With a morning walk and then eating he sleeps for a while then hes outside playing and then I walk him mid afternoon then after work my husband and daughter take him to a fenced in area of the school and let him run then he pretty much crashes by 8 at night sleeps the night. The worse part is between 3-5 I try and occupy him with toys and things to chew on but the cage has always been an issue.
We had snow last night and it was funny to see him this morning he didnt know what it was. Sort of comical.
