Boisterous, playful, and inquisitive, the Boxer is often described as acting like a “goofball.” These dogs are also incredibly devoted and affectionate, making them a popular choice for active families.
Since boxers have such high energy levels, they need both physical and mental stimulation every day. They love to run and do best in homes with a large, fenced-in back yard or other space where they can safely romp and play. A long leash walk or a good jog are also sufficient to meet their exercise needs. It’s important to note that these dogs are not tolerant of heat and must not be over-exerted in hot and humid weather.
Boxers have minimal grooming needs, requiring only occasional brushing to remove dead hair.
