Thanks for the replies: Update RE PREVIOUS POST: http://www.boxerworld.com/forums/bo...agression-towards-my-3-year-old-new-post.html My wife and I have decided it best to place our boxer in another home. We are sorry to do this as our other two children are older (13 and 11), and he has absolutely no problem with them. Unfortunately, we've had no problems with him and our 3 year old either until that one incident. Since then there have been a couple of other warning growls, and given the fact that he's a really active 3 (as he would be) we just can't keep an eye on him 24 hours a day to ensure things don't escalate. He's not an aggressive dog per our evaluation, or the professional behaviorist. The behaviorist is confident that he can help because he's not a aggressive dog, but in our opinion he is just not tolerant of the kind of over stimulation and energy put out by my 3 year old. It's extremely stressful that every 5-10 minutes a prospect for a bad situation is created by the innocent toddler behavior and engagement with the dog my toddler keeps up. They're always supervised, but all incidents have happened in our presence. We think this is best. He needs to be in a home with no children at all, or (with older children 10 and up).
