Only reprimand when you catch your dog doing some things wrong, and punish only with your voice. - Fighters are shorthaired and attuned to intense parts of the weather and so must be kept a housedog. - Remember that he's a massive and robust breed and needs physical outlets for his limitless energy and high play / prey drive. - Walk them 3 times each day or have play sessions. Provide lots of space for them to hop around. Healthy and contented Fighters are a pleasure to live with. The breeder can counsel you about care and health matters which are unique to the breed.
Any Fighter breeder, in fact, can be an useful ally to you through your Boxer's life. A tip given by an owner is to give your Fighter garlic daily to stop fleas. The snug living - boiler heating, double-glazing and, better still the fitted carpet - we create for ourselves and our Fighters also work well for the fleas. You'll just finish up with a barking and gnawing dog, one that's cagey, hand-shy, scared or assertive.
