Hi there & welcome. Please read thru the training section for a lot of very good advice regarding training. The key with boxers is keep your sessions short. Altho they are very intelligent, they also have short attention spans as well, continuing to do the same command over and over, just confuses them and theythink they are doing it wrong...Keep it short, make it fun...And at first keep lots of treats on hand...

Hi and welcome to the Forum.  Ditto what Willow said about the training section.  Start simple, lots of treats and praise, good luck.  Remember to reward the good behavior cuz it's over look them when they are being good and not reinforce the bad behavior.

I'd like to add that a basic obedience class would be well worth your while.  You both learn and develop a stronger bond, that's just a few of the benefits of joining a class besides the hands on instruction.  Good luck!

I would like to add that it is a great way to socialize dogs in controlled environment.  We are in our second obedience class and I will miss it.  Our trainer gives a 1/3 off if we want to retake a class which I think is well worth it and we will probably do it once a year.  It will keep Kiah on I on track so we don't slack off  :)
