Boxers are energetic, bright and playful breeds of dogs. Boxers also tend to be very good with children. Boxers are also strong dogs and it is best to supervise the Boxers around small children. It's always best to begin obedience training as early is possible since Boxers ar eknwon to have a strong personality and therefore can be significantly harder to train as the Boxer gets older.
