Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
While you want to train your pup not to bite hard, you do eventually want to teach him not to bite at at all, which is where these steps can help. This version of How to Stop a Boxer Dog from Biting was reviewed by Pippa Elliott, MRCVS on August 23, 2015. The Boxer is a German breed that was created by crossing a Bullenbeisser, a little-known breed, and an English Bulldog. In the end, rewarding good behavior is more useful and constructive for training purposes than punishing bad behavior.
An important part of training is helping your Boxer to behave around other dogs, so try and attend a puppy class. When house-training, keep your Boxer confined to one room, so there are fewer distractions for him. Consider expending your Boxer's energy before training sessions by allowing him 20 to 30 minutes of high intensity physical activity. Try to train the dog in a place where there are few distractions, so that your Boxer puppy can focus his attention on you. Boxers are playful by nature, and a light, breezy tone will not suffice; he will think you are just playing with him if you are not firm enough. If you live with other people, make sure that everyone in the house is on board with the training program. Boxers by nature are loyal to humans, they generally get along with other pets in the household, and they tend to like children, usually playing gently when appropriate.
Also bear in mind that Boxers have a reputation for taking up to three years to mature mentally, and can remain in a puppyish state until then, which for a big dog can be problematic if he wants to jump, pounce, paw, and dig at you. It's important to note as well that although Boxer dogs as a breed may share some general characteristics, just as people have different personalities, so too do Boxer dogs.
Keep in mind that giving Boxer puppies what they need will help ensure that they don't engage in "bad behaviors". This version of How to Train a Boxer Puppy was reviewed by Pippa Elliott, MRCVS on July 17, 2015. They need a lot of attention and therefore, can be prone to playful biting, especially as puppies.
When your dog is biting at the right pressure in play, say "Good dog," using a happy tone of voice.


If your dog is too aggressive and has a history of biting, use a muzzle to keep people safe and to seek professional help at the earliest possible time.
For example, when you bring your new puppy home, take him to the toilet spot in the garden and praise him when he uses it. With a young pup, the training is a simple as spotting he's about to sit anyway, and when his hind leg hits the ground, saying "Sit" and making a bit of a fuss of him. Then hold the treat just above the pup's eye level, over the head, so he has to look up to keep it in view. Rewards-based training is the best method to get your dog to understand and follow all kinds of commands and cues.
Many veterinary clinics hold puppy classes, which are ideal for Boxers who need early socialization.
This is to increase the chance of the puppy squatting as a matter of coincidence, and increases your chances of being there to give him lots of praise.
Clicker training gets the dog to associate the "click-clack" sound of a clicker (pressed by you) with a reward.
The clicker itself is a tiny plastic box held in the palm of your hand, with a metal tongue that you push quickly to make the sound. Training works best when you dedicate a couple of short sessions (10 to 15 minutes) twice a day to it.
Keep in mind that your puppy wasn't born automatically knowing the rules of living in a human world.
Though the breed tends to be energetic and hyper, it's also possible that your puppy may be shy or more relaxed. Teaching your dog not to bite is easiest when he is young, but you can also work on boxers when they are adults. Consider visiting one of the classes prior to enrolling to make sure that you agree with the type of training presented. If you use this word from the beginning, your Boxer puppy will learn to associate it with doing what he is supposed to do outside. Eventually your dog will come to learn that clicks are always followed by treats, which is a very powerful incentive for Boxer puppies. The idea is that the Boxer thinks of the crate as his den, a place where he's safe and can relax and sleep.


Using different words for the same action will confuse the dog, disrupt the training already done, and ultimately delay progress. When your boxer puppy gets overexcited or misbehaves, it isn't because he is a fundamentally bad dog, but because he doesn't know any better. Boxer dogs are a delight but they're also exuberant clowns that have a lot of energy and need plenty of stimulation, including lots of playtime and walks. Boxers are extremely intelligent but sometimes hide it well behind their boisterous facade. These traits make it essential that anyone who adds a young one to their family be well-versed on how to train a Boxer puppy. The idea is that the Boxer works hard to repeat the behavior which earned him a treat or a fuss. Instead of learning from the punishment, your dog will instead become fearful of you, which ultimately defeats the training process since that is not the desired result. Once the puppy is happy to go to the crate, you can close the door for a few seconds, and open it again and if the puppy was quiet give her lots of praise. Don't forget to enforce training when you are out and about, so that your dog doesn't just thinking that "Sit" and "Stay" are things he has to do in the yard or house.
Boxers won't understand the concept of "sometimes"; they are either permitted to lie on the couch or they are not. This can make an unruly Boxer a bit of a pain to be around as he may pounce on you, almost cat-like, to get your attention, which for a 60 to 70-pound dog can be quite painful. They like people and are eager to please them, making Boxers an ideal breed for reward-based training, which relies on rewarding good behavior, while ignoring behavior. The crate should be big enough for your puppy to turn all the way around, stand up and lie down.
