Hi Alan, welcome to the site. Hope you enjoy it here.
What part of the world are you in, and what are your lifestyle constraints concerning the choice of dog?
My name is Jill, I have a 9 year old white male called Daz, we live in Aberdeen, North-East Scotland.

Hi Jill,

I am in Dunfermline so East Coast like yourself, lifestyle constraints are that we have 2 young children aged 6 and 2 so it would be dificult for us to take on a pup who isn't toilet trained as young feet rhrough dog poo isn;t a nice thought just now, I don't mind the other aspects of training i-e socialising with other dogs and other adults/children. I am also concerend about finding a reputable breeder although i have made contact with a few who i beleive to be genuine caring breeders the prices i am being quted are for 750 which is something i would have to weigh up with the cost of vacinations insurance and neutering, my wife would prefer a dog of say over 6 months who has been toilet trained but might still need some on lead/off lead training etc, then my worry is ensuring the dog has been handled correctly and has been socialised properly.

Sorry for the ramblings, i am never off the net just now researching this subject

Oh and thanks for the welcome:thumbs:

Have you considered rescuing a Boxer? The perfect dog may be there already, just waiting for a loving home.

That is one of the places we have looked and unfortunately they will no place a dog in a home with Kids under the age of 6 as they can not gaurantee the dog's temprement, which is totaly understandable, but thanks for the thought

Hi Alan,

You are right, Boxer Welfare Scotland do not rehome where there are children under the age of 5 as we cannot guarantee the history of the dog and the safety of the children is paramount.

There are breeders in Scotland that we would recommend you avoid, but I am not going to name them on a public forum! If you are purchasing a boxer through the private ads that you do as much research as possible regarding its homelife before you make a decision. We have had dogs come in to us because of the horror stories where they have taken them off through the papers.

Good luck in the search and welcome to the forum

I totlay understan the policy and in no way was i saying waht you do is wrong.

We have decided to by a young puppy and have done some research into what we beleive to be reputable breeders, we are doing as much reaing and talking as possible, we think we will make the plunge around dext Easter now, which will give us as much time to read about traning, the pros of getting a crate, and to make sure we find the right breeder, if there isn;t a litter availabe at Easter we will wait until after that time. In the meantime I will continue to post regulalrly on here

Please don't get a crate, there really is no need. If you have the patience and time to teach your puppy a crate wont be needed.

Most breeders will try and sell you a crate along with a puppy these days which is shocking. How did everyone manage before crates came along - they just cleaned up the wee and poop and got on with it lol

On our rescue forum, we have lots of people who have habitually used a crate, just because it was what the breeder recommended. They have taken the step of removing the crate and found all is perfectly normal.

Good luck in your search, it's great that you are doing so much research beforehand! Well done!

Re: Good Evening From A Newbie

Agree with Karen on the crate angle. I have used them - they have their uses but would never actively use them the way a lot of folk do nowdays. You would probably find that with small children they would be more often in the crate than the pup anyway!!

Well done for doing so much research before you buy your pup.
