You are ready to bring your Boxer home? First, you must prepare
your house. Whether you are bringing home a puppy or adult Boxer,
you may want to spend some time surveying your house from a Boxer
eye view (about 2 feet off the ground).
What if you want a Boxer, but cannot stomach the thought of
housebreaking, chewed up shoes and boundless puppy energy? Have
you ever heard of Boxer rescue? These organizations provide
loving care (and sometimes rehabilitation) to Boxers who have
been surrendered by their owners, found abandoned or rescued from
harmful situations. Too many people get a Boxer for the wrong
reasons and thankfully there are rescue organizations to take
these dogs into their homes and provide care until a forever
family can be found.

your vet bill will be.
Itch, itch. Scratch, scratch, scratch.
Of all the parasites a dog can catch, worms take home first prize
for Most Disgusting. Nobody wants to imagine little worms
crawling around in their dog's digestive system, but it's a
fairly common ailment that's easily passed from dog to dog.
Your dog's dental health is so important for his total
If you decide you want a purebred, make sure it's because you
love the breed since purebreds are often not as resilient as
mixed breeds. Consider carefully why you want a purebred.
Over the last 20 years, vaccinations have generally been started
in puppies at about 6-8 weeks of age, when the natural immunity
inherited from the mother may start wearing off. A series of
shots will then be given every three to four weeks, and boosters

these youngsters are also playful, naughty and mischievous as
Would you like to save money and have a healthier pet? Let me
tell you a story. One day, my German Shepherd asleep, as usual,

Teaching your dog to heel is one of the most basic and important
