    American vs European

    Aww well ... both are "Boxers" but the fact of the matter is "Euro vs American" are two different experiences! We have this discussion fairly often on "Boxerforum." And the key term is "Aloof" to strangers??? And by and large with a typical, well trained and well adjusted "American Line Boxer"...

    Help, puppy is having behavioral issues in the yard.

    No means nothing to a dog if you have uh "no means of enforcing it??? " No is an actual command but it has to be taught first and one has to have some means of enforcing it ... otherwise saying "No, No, No is a waste of time. :) Most likely an "Extreme" example but I taught my Boxer "Struddell"...

    TRASH BABY!

    Aww well the old "Stronger Trash" can approach?? I suppose that can work?? But color me as" not a fan" of that parroach..I much prefer to "show my dogs what I want" and how I expect them to behave.." You have three variable options : Option one ... do nothing and learn to learn with the...

    Well if you wan to search google ... look for chip18 place command, "Place Command" would be the place to start in order to "Train" your dog to "Chill." And as for the immediate problem ... well until you deliver an "aversive' to your dog for making "Poor Choices." He's not gonna stop. Use...

    My boxer is too anxious and nervous :( NEED HELP

    Well folks can argue about anything! If it helps your "not" wasn't your time. I take your points to heart! Hence your comment about my "limited sample of dogs" point taken so now I work with rescue Boxers! :) "Because I say so" it's not a technique it's an attitude. I "expect" a dog under...

    My boxer is too anxious and nervous :( NEED HELP

    Yes,yes I did. Substitute a fearful Boxer for this yellow lab and this is what it looked like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2WgOZUebnY Nothing more nothing less, sometimes simple works. :)

    My boxer is too anxious and nervous :( NEED HELP

    Most likely you over did the treats? Bribing instead of training, I tend to go with the "because I say so school," myself but no matter. I'd start over and start here: Where's my sanity 'Sit on Dog" do a Goggle search Pros have been doing this for a very long time! Some of them do it with all...

    couple of boxer puppy tips needed please

    Look at this, I never used it myself I never had the need with my dogs. I did get to do it to day with a fearful rescue at Boxers and Buddies. Do is afraid of people I saw him last week and he looked so sad! :( After a walk we came back I kept the dog or a sit or down between my legs..not sure...

    Sam - my sweet soul

    So sorry for your loss and yes 13 years is a long time for a Boxer! It always hurts when they go, you think they are "always" going to be there and then one day they are gone!!! First couple days are the worst but it does get better with time, you did a great job for your guy. Take Care.
