Character


The Boxador is a gentle, playful breed and is sometimes prone to episodes of hyperactivity. It is loving and enjoys the company of other dogs and people. The Boxador is inherently good with children and should be more gentle in their precense. This breed must be socialized from birth. Due to its intelligence, the Boxador is easy to train and will learn commands quickly. This breed rarely barks but may be prone to “boxing” when excited. It loves to run and get plenty of exercise. Some Boxadors may have separation anxiety leaving them sad, anxious or depressed. Generally a walk will snap this breed out of a poor mood.

Boxadors are very suspicious of strangers so let them met a lot of people while they are still young before they turn 5 months old.

Maintenance


Boxadors generally require little grooming aside from occasional (maybe once a week) brushing in the summer when they shed and routine (also maybe once a week) bathing. They do require a fair amount of exercise and love to run and generally do not do well cooped up in a small house or apartment, lest they suffer from boredom in which case they are prone to chewing problems. They have been known to chew on a variety of objects from shoes, stuffed animals, pens and pencils and even wooden furniture and carpet if they are ignored or isolated on a regular basis. This breed requires daily walks and time outside in order to be properly exercised. An under exercised Boxador may become destructive and anxious.

Bath them 1 every two months because there coat is stiff enough and if you bath then once a week there coat will become very stiff when not wet.

Some boxadors outgrow chewing problems within a couple years. Having a selection of things that belong to them (chew toys) helps them distinguish what is OK to chew, and what is not. Positive reinforcement and playing with the chew toys along with negative reinforcement (VOCAL ONLY) such as "Shame on you." in a scolding but not loud tone of voice when something gets chewed that shouldn't. My boxador could be left home alone for 8-9 hours with no chewing or potty "accidents" provided she went out to potty before I left for work.

Ideal Environment


The Boxador usually does not do well in small areas such as an apartment or townhouse. The best place for a Boxador is in a spacious house or a farm. It is a very energetic breed and needs plenty of exercise. This breed is well suited for companion dogs which often help it vent excessive energy, boredom and ward off feelings of isolation.

I have a 3.5 month old brown and black boxador she lives in a big house with tons of ackerage and she is amazing i think that this breed would do better on a farm like me and if you want a inside boxador you need to give it tons of attension

With regular visits to the dog park, or a more spacious environment (I utilized a 50 foot clothes line type trolley) a boxador can be quite happy in smaller spaces provided their people are with them most of the time.

Boxador Q&A

I have been breeding labs for 12 yrs., my daughter has a boxer. I would like to know what color lab should I breed to her boxer, which is brindle/white, and keep the dark color and the white paws and face?? I'm guessing, use the choc. or black labs, because the yellow would probably lighten the pups don't you think?? If you can help me out here I'd appreciate it.

My boxador has a yellow lab mother, and a Brindle boxer father. All 9 puppies came out black with a few patches of white on chest and paws.

I have a 6.5 months old Boxador. He is very small to be close to either breeds (only weighing about 25lbs right now). A Large collar is even a bit big for him (Medium is too small). Is this normal for a Boxador? Could it possibly be that he is a runt? He is not thin but not fat either, just right.

I have a boxador and he is 7 months at 60+ lb. I think he is on the thin side.

what can I do to stop her from winning at night when I put her in her cage for the night

If she is whining when you put her in the cage, it is because she feels left out. My boxador is 5 1/2 years old now. She is highly social and wants to be near you always. My advice is take her out of the cage and let her sleep on the floor next to your bed.
