Re: Hi

First off 16 week old puppies are not aggressive. Nor should you be takIng a puppy that young to training classes unless they are puppies her age at "socialisation" classes?

So what does she do to make you think shes aggressive as i suspect like most Boxer puppies she is playing boisterously. Some dogs dont like Boxers as they play "full on", that isnt your puppies fault!

As for biting your feet, thats normal puppy play, distract her, play with her

Hoe long have you had her?

Boxers are slow to mature, she wont be an adult until she is 3/4 years old. So you really have a very young (baby) puppy.

Re: Hi

a 500ml size plastic bottle with some dried pasta in comes in handy, shake it to distract the pup when it's doing something you wish to discourage, such a biting your feet, works well even when your boxer is 8!!!!! :wink:

Re: Hi

Rattle bottle works well, but I am very concerned that this pup is already being labelled "aggressive"!

A 16 week old pup needs socialisation, not training classes. Take it out to play with other dogs in safe and fun environments.

Also, if she hates her lead, just leave it on her and let her run around the house trailing it behind her until it doesn't bother her any more. No puppy takes to it straight away, they need gentle coaxing.

When she is happy with it trailing behind her, just put pressure on it every now and then, so she gets used to it being tight at times. Take your time, there is no hurry. The slower you take it, the better it will be for her and you!

Good luck and change classes!!

Gixer was a nightmare at socialisation he just wanted to play. It takes lots of patience and you have to be more stubborn than your Boxer which at times can be hard. I remember trying not to laugh at him at classes because he was being funny but not doing the right thing and he knew it and was playing to the crowd.

They are hard work but loads of fun and give you so much back. If the class leader thinks your pup is aggressive I would ifnd another socialisation class.

Re: Hi

I concur with what's been said. That is natural with the breed. Training and maturity will help this. A bit any way.
Till my Daz was 8 years old and his first stroke, he would try and subjugate every dog we met. Tall dogs he would just slap in the kisser, short dogs he would stomp them about the shoulder blades. Or, he would stop in front of them, he would adopt the "Boxer" pose and stare straight ahead, rigid, the other dog would pass head to head, then move on to sniff bum, at this point Daz's head turned to be over their shoulder. This was the fire point of subjugation. They either accept his superiority or "let's wrestle", Daz would open with an arm over the back, pushing forward to roll the oponent over, then mayhem pretty much!!! He was consistent.
He would play, full on, whether they wanted to or not. It was his world and he played it his way, the Boxer way. Freaked out many a dog we met.
Tip No.1 Research the breed before you commit.
Have been looking at getting a Malamute. Such a beautiful dog, but, what a handful! Don't think I could cope with that. Will probably stay within the Boxer circle.
