Whether you’re a long-time Boxer owner, or you’ve just gotten your first puppy, Meet the Boxer is a must-have reference!

This dog training book is the first official publication endorsed by the American Kennel Club (AKC) on one of the world’s most beloved working and companion dogs, the Boxer. Thanks to the experts at the AKC and the American Boxer Club, this Boxer book offers the most accurate and authoritative information available on this breed. Eleven chapters detail the history of the breed, characteristics, and special requirements for owning this versatile dog, originally bred in Germany. These 128 pages are beautifully illustrated with color images of puppies and adults.

A chapter devoted to the purchase and selection of a Boxer puppy gives you specific guidance on how to locate a qualified breeder and to recognize a healthy puppy. Two separate chapters serve as a primer to training the puppy—house-training and obedience work, focusing on positive-training techniques as the best and most successful way to educate dogs. Start off introducing your Boxer to safe social interactions, find the right trainer, and teach them to obey cues. Training and conditioning will impart good manners on your Boxer as they learn commands like settle, sit, down, stay, come, and heel. Follow expert advice on addressing problem behaviors like barking and jumping as well as how to prevent biting.

Dedicated chapters on home care, safety, feeding, and healthcare offer invaluable information for any Boxer dog parent. Discover balanced nutrition for your Boxer no matter their age, grooming made simple, how to choose the right vet, as well as a guide to vaccines and other treatments to help your Boxer live a long and healthy life. Discover great tips for keeping your Boxer active to help regulate their energy levels, build their strength and fitness, and keep them happy.

As an official AKC book, Meet the Boxer also explains the many vital programs offered by the country’s leading canine organization to all dog parents, including the S.T.A.R. Puppy and the Canine Good Citizen programs, as well as descriptions of various dog sports such as conformation showing, agility, obedience and more. A detailed resources section offers recommendations for websites, books, periodicals, and club affiliate programs, all valuable information for responsible dog owners.

Start your journey with your canine companion with the ultimate guide for this breed, Meet the Boxer!
