Boxers are friendly towards other pets as long as they are trained in socializing. If a Boxer has not been socialized with other animals at an early age, they may not get along well with other pets and be aggressive towards them. They also have a tendency to chase smaller animals, if not trained otherwise.
Boxers are excellent as family dogs. They are very loyal and protective of their adoptive families and are known to show a lot of affection. They also thrive on attention and love to be in the presence of their family.
Boxers can be left home alone only for a short period of time. They love to be in the presence of their adoptive family and have their attention. If you are planning on leaving your Boxer home alone for the average working day that lasts several hours, you will need to train them from a young age.
Boxers are very easy to groom. Since they have short coats, they do not pick up a lot of dirt and stay clean. So, you can simply use a soft brush to groom their coats once a week.
Boxers are vocal and have a tendency to bark when they wish to convey something. They also bark when they spot someone coming towards the house since they have been bred in the past as protective dogs.
