There are many choices when it comes to rewarding your boxer dog with a dog treat for obeying your commands, and these treats make a big difference in your boxer dog’s attitude towards you in learning new tricks, and why wouldn’t they? To get anything in life you have to give something back and your boxer is no different, you help your boxer and he’ll help you. How simple it is!
But what are the best rewards and dog treats to give your boxer in times of good behavior? Well for starters you won’t be short of treats to try, the markets as it is now is full to the brim of all the fancy rewards and dog treats you could ever think of.
One of the favorite for Boxer owners is to treat their boxer to homemade treats from recipes that can be found across the internet in many places, some of my favorites and personal recommendations are listed in the products page of dog treat website.
Dog toys are also a good choice when rewarding your boxer; these include chewing dog toys such as kong dog toys, which can be very rewarding for boxer puppies and boxers alike. Saving one of your boxer’s favorite toys for when your boxer behaves well makes everything more exciting for your dog and causes them to want to perform more for this reward.
If a chew toy is not to your boxer liking then your boxer may instead enjoy a tug toy, tug toys are good for your boxer’s teeth the same as chew toys are and it enhances the relationship between you and your boxer as you play with them. Be careful while using these toys as some boxers may think of this game as good behavior and will start tugging on trousers or other annoying or destructive things.
Boxer is one of most hazardous dogs. If you want your boxer to be a part of your family who follows your house rules and respects your things instead of a big mess maker that destroys everything in sight and chews on all of your belongings, then you must go through dog training with your boxer. You can’t expect an untrained boxer dog to understand what you expect of him.
To your boxer, your new expensive shoes look like the perfect chew dog toys that he can play with. As a dog owner, you are responsible for training your boxer, so he knows what he can play with and what he isn’t allowed to chew on. So when you get home from a long day at work to find your living room ripped up to shreds by your beloved boxer, punishing your boxer won’t help in any anyway. When you try to discipline a boxer without training him first, he will be confused to why you are punishing your boxer and most likely will resent you for it, which can lead to worse behavior and more problems down the line.
If training your boxer solves all the problems why do many boxer dog owners don’t even try to train their dogs? As a matter of fact, most dog owners do try but are not sure of what to do. You have to understand how a boxer dogs mind works before you can begin training. What usually happens is the dog owner applies some of the tips he or she read in a book or a magazine to their training and once they see that it doesn’t apply to their boxer they give up on training all together.

Do I need a professional dog trainer to train my boxer? Boxers are intelligent dogs, but can get stubborn from time to time. That means training your boxer can be a bit challenging, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do it on your own! What you need however, is some proper information from someone who understands what goes in the mind of a boxer dog, especially if you are new to dog training. I know it might sound intimidating at first, believe me I’ve been in your shoes myself, but it really isn’t that hard once you know what you’re doing.
