If you don't mind the slobber, Boxers can make a perfect family dog.
Willingness to please and obey commands is in their nature, which makes Boxers quite easy to train. They have a calm nature combined with a soft gentle temperament and tend to be gentle with children. However, we recommend early socialisation with children to ensure this is the case.
With a strong tendency to protect their own, Boxers will be devoted and attached to their family. However, they can be quite skeptical and mistrustful towards strangers.
They will usually bark to alert their pack and for this reason we would not recommend this breed as an apartment dog.
Regular exercise is quite important for Boxers but it doesn't have to be over the top. They won't mind if they miss one walk per week.
