Loving and protective, the Boxer is a wonderful dog for an experienced, energetic
family with older children. The Boxer is often too strong and too boisterous for younger
children or the frail elderly. The Boxer can be a city dog or country dog as long as he
gets plenty of exercise. He is not an ideal apartment dog as he needs plenty of room to
romp and play. A yard with a high fence is ideal.
Boxers can be strong minded, stubborn dogs, therefore, they can be challenging to
train. If possible, training should begin early and should be firm, consistent and kind.
