I have an 8 1/2 month old white Boxer pup (with some of little brown and black spots). He came to me from Oklahoma @ 8 weeks- waiting to get him off the plane seemed like a lifetime (much less waiting for him to turn 8 weeks!). He's a fantastic dog- so smart, willing, and loving. Very social (except at home- please I need advice on the topic I just posted) and sensitive. His 'brother' is the same age but a little bitty Chihuahua/Chinese Crested (powder puff) cross- so cute- and I'm not a little dog person. Pyx's favorite places are on his dog bed in the house, the desert, and the dog park. I love to watch Boxers play- it's so funny and they tire eachother out! Everyone says he's going to be a very big boy- atleast he minds well. I was wondering if anyone would still suggest obedience training if he already listens well (and loves to do tricks- probably for the treats...)? Good to be here!
