They are energetic as they need a lot of exercise. Boxers in general require a good run atleast twice a day to keep them happy and content. So start giving them proper exercise and you will see the difference. Also with age they do sober up but still require proper exercise. Also keep in mind their ability to jump over fences etc. When my boxer was younger no one could catch him once he decided to run and would jump over my huge garden fence which I had installed for him, luckily I have a large property which is properly fenced in. This is why it is always advisable to get one dog first. Also I hope you have trained your dog with love and affection.

If you have a male, please mate him asap - This would calm his temparment quite a bit. If you have a female skip the first season & then get her mated with the male. Boxers are well known for being hyperactive. They need a lot of exercise - You can try ball chase game, throw the ball & ask them to chase & get the ball back to you. This is the first time I getting to hear that boxers are attacking. Normally they are known to be good guard dogs, if only charge if you challenge them. Very good protectors of family & especially children. Get them completely exhausted, unchain them & let them socialise a bit with rest of your family members. Try this & keep me posted whether you acn see a change in their attitude. Boxers are adorable & need a lot of love & affection Iam saying all this because I currently own 4 of them.

Mating has nothing to do with biting the keeper. I am sure they need more mental stimulation. try and indulge them in some activity. I hope you dont keep them chained at all.

Dude this is my experience talking...! So let Ashish decide wot he wants to do with his boxers..
I personally feel a dog gets more mature only once he mates with a bitch. His true temparment would reflect his inside character. Rest is upto you Ashish. All da best..

Dude thank GOD its YOUR experience... If having sex made anyone mature, the world would have been a better place. AND, my suggestion/opinion was for Ashish, so i suggest you keep your experience for the forum and not for me...

Sex will not make a dog mature but could aggreavate the issue. you could nueter them but the temeperament is already set.

Boxers are slowest maturing breed. It could take 3 years before the are considered mature.

The soultion to yr problem is a 5km walk a day with the dogs. This stimulates them thus making them calm down. This was recommend by a UK judge.

Hi forum, is 15 months good age to get it mated? as per KCI and other literature I guess it should be at least 18-24 months?
I have personally feel- these dogs are in need of exercise.
I agree with Simba_love_buddy, warriec and kasmada

Hi Rana,

18-24 months is recommend because dog enter there prime at this age thus making them easier to asses, especially a stud dog. Anything younger, you wouldn't be able to see any faults yet.

As well known, boxers are goofy hyperactive dogs that need a lot of excercise. If they don't get their exercise, they will behave oddly. So start with giving them ample exercise.

Also keep in mind that keepers are not always the best trained to take care of dogs. Sometimes they might be doing things to aggrevate the dog, intentionally or unintentionally. So try talking to your keeper to understand his attitude towards your dogs. If your keeper is sincere, you can ask him to create a log of when the dogs attack him and see if there is something disturbing your dog. Once you have identified what bothers your dog, you could either elimiate the stimulus or get your dog used to the stimulus gradually.

If your keeper does not come across as sincere, change your keeper immediately. Bad keepers can completely destroy your dogs behaviour and make it extremely unbearable to everyone. I had a dog keeper who would keep irritating my dog and get him to lunge at strangers. It got so bad, that my dog started biting strangers on the road all the time. So please be careful with keepers. if required, get your keeper to attending dog training, along with your dog.

Also, most research points towards spaying /neutering your dog calms your dog down and is also very beneficial for your dogs health and avoids several cancers and complications.

And last, but not the least, socialize your dog. If your dog is comfortable with you, gradually introduce your dogs to the keeper. Start with keeping your dogs on a leash and constantly praising and treating him, while your keeper approaches your dog a little at a time. Increase interactions between keeper and dog gradually. It might take some time at the begining, but it pays off at the end.
