I have 1 fawn 1 year old boxer I am training for agility now and he
loves it and he can already jump 3 foot 2 he is very active.
Pat Comments: Jamie please don't jump your dog over three foot jumps
as it will damage his joints. The maximum he will have to jump is
65cm which is just over 2 foot. He needs to get used to doing much
smaller jumps at first and he needs to learn to do them in a sequence.
The idea of agility isn't how high a dog can jump but how well they can
negotiate a course of jumps without knocking down any poles or going the
wrong way. You really will hurt him if you ask him to jump too
high but it won't show until he's older.
I have two boxers, both of them are trained in the three main UK disciplines,
Breed, Obedience and Agility. My puppy has just started her basic agility training
but my older dog has done a fair bit for quite a while - not competition standard
but that's down to me not her!
A joy to own and have been for myself and family for the last 21 years - would never
have another breed now!!
Very active keen learner! Loves agility and
obedience training sessions. Diverts
his energy into something more positive, keeping him out of trouble!
I have 2 white boxers, they are quite good at
agility, I my girl is frost bite and my boy is jack. Jack is lightning fast, but frost bite is a poke along.
but she gets the job done. They are a joy and put up with a lot from my cattle
dog and my kids. They are great with kids.
Boxer dogs are very good at
jumping. I know this because I have got one of my own called Max and he loves to jump.
Boxers are known for their sense
of humour, it can appear anytime, anyplace, anywhere! Like when you start your run but the Boxer is admiring
his audience. They are also known for their enthusiasm, and when they're enthusiastic
about something there is no stopping them. Can compete with Collies!!!!
