They like to be active and included in everything, some even say it is like having a new baby in the house all over again!!.

Boxers require 'obedience' training - so if you have not got the time for this a Boxer may not suit you. Boxers are very intelligent dogs and require firm, fair, yet fun stimulating training. If you want a dog who only wants to do what you say when you say it, then do not get a Boxer.
