In relation to strangers, the dog is cautious, and at first glance, it seems that it may not even notice a stranger, although, in fact, the dog is always on the alert. If this is a family friend, and he knows how to behave with a dog, she will answer him positively, but with restraint. After all, the Boxer breed is known for its vigilance – it is an excellent watchman, he has a heightened sense of hearing and is in attention even when, at first glance, he is peacefully sleeping. And if it is necessary to stop the intruder, the dog will not back down and will do everything possible.
The Boxer breed is known for taking a very long time to mature – full maturation occurs no earlier than three years. This is one of the reasons why the dog retains its playfulness for so long. Boxers participate in canine disciplines – obedience, agility and a three-stage competition that tests a dog’s ability to track, obey and defend.
