Caring for your Boxer canine involves sufficient exercise, proper diet, training, vet visits, and a comfortable, secure home. Your doggie is sensitive to extreme temperatures and must be kept in the house with the family.
Also, schedule regular, short training sessions to enhance communication and form a stronger bond.
Boxers are active, high-energy dogs. This huge energy must be spent to avoid destruction and help with their sturdy, muscular build. We found that 2 daily sessions provided sufficient exercise for your pooch, depending on your companion’s size.
So, how far should you walk a Boxer dog? We recommend two 30-minute daily walks with your adult Boxer, but the occasional longer walk would equally benefit your healthy doggies too. Unguided exercises in a securely fenced area will allow your canine sufficient room for sniffing and exploring.
Your Boxer needs about 2.5 to 3 cups of high-quality food served twice per day. The AAFCO nutrient requirements recommend at least 22% protein for growth and 18% in adults, with about 8% fat and 5% for puppies. Include multivitamins and other minerals in the diet for a wholesome and healthy nutrition.
Homemade meals should include breast chicken, turkey, fish, and vegetables, as well as a vitamin mix consisting of vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D3, and E. High-quality commercial foods like the Pet Plate’s high-protein and grain-free Barkin’ Beef recipe are already enriched with these key nutrients.
Having frequent wet food but without regular brushing may lead to rapid bacteria growth in the mouth of your Boxer dog. Use high-quality dental water additives to maintain good oral hygiene and to fight canine dental disorders.
