Bowser is almost 6 mos. old. I have a 4 yr. old Lab who plays with him some, especially outside. BUT..... whenever I can't play with him, he doesn't know what to do with himself. I can't walk him because he won't walk well on the leash, plus, I am in a wheelchair from a car accident. I can never get my husband to take him for a walk, so all I can do is to let him out in the yard. It's a very large fenced in yard, so he has plenty of room to run and play, but if the other dog gets tired of playing, he gets destructive. He digs deep holes, he eats mulch, he dug up all the mulch around my cherry tree, He eats dirt and..............I think he eats the other dogs poo (YUK)!!!! He ripped the fabric skirt off one of my chairs, he destroys any decorative objects he can get to. I can't play with him all the time, and I hate to think I have to crate him again. Are Boxers such high energy dogs that they get so bored all the time? If so, do they grow out of it? Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
