Boxer Training: Tips on how to Prevent Behavior Problems

By Sue Chapple

Canine behavior problems are triggered by different factors such as surroundings, previous encounters and boxer training. Although the occurrence of such problems are common among dogs of any breed, it is strongly suggested to address these problems as quickly as possible to prevent them from becoming worse. Behavior problems include but not limited to digging, chasing, excessive barking, biting, jumping and so forth. While these problems may not have similar causes as well as effects, techniques like the ones stated below can be applied to most of the mentioned behavior issues.


This is one important part of boxer training because it is during this period that a puppy or even an adult dog, is given the opportunity to mingle with the mother, litter mates and other dogs. Through this, he’ll be able to figure out how to respond not just to other animals but to humans as well. Furthermore, it will help him reduce his fear, nervousness or shyness.

Function as pack leader.

Canines in the wild flourish in packs. In the case of domesticated dogs, they recognize humans as part of the pack too. Therefore it’s important to ensure it is clear to your boxer that you are the leader of the pack. Failure to show your pet that you’re the pack leader may cause confusion and disobedience.

Appropriate correction.

One way to prevent problems from getting worse is to correct undesirable behaviors as soon as it happens. Like for instance if you see your dog digging or about to dig in the front lawn, distract him and transfer him to the location where he is allowed to dig. If he continues to dig in the spot you specified, reward him with treats or praise to let him know that you’re happy with what he did.


While correction is needed each time he made a mistake, proper recognition shouldn’t be taken for granted too. Rewarding your dog for every good behavior helps him determine that you are pleased with what he did thus increases the chance of doing such behavior again. Rewards could be treats, praise or time to play.

Modifying behavior problems may appear challenging but as long as you are aware of the basic boxer training tips, having a well-behaved boxer is not impossible to achieve.
