Training Your Boxer
Here is practical instruction in humane, reliable, and easy-to-understand techniques you can use to transform your Boxer into a well-mannered and well-trained companion. Most Boxers are good-natured dogs who readily respond to positive reinforcement techniques, such as clicker training. Training Your Boxer opens with a brief history of the breed, and then describes the animal's personality and traits. It offers information on how the Boxer learns, as well as tips on purchasing collars and leashes, teaching basic obedience skills, and much more.

Inappropriate obedience training methods can often produce a stubborn and unwilling learner. This book, a title in Barron's Training Your Dog series, presents breed-specific advice to dog owners. The emphasis is on dog-friendly methods for teaching skills and preventing or correcting bad habits. Virtually every aspect of canine training is covered, including house training, teaching obedience to verbal cues and hand signals, retrieving, walking the dog on a leash, and more. Instructive color photos appear on most pages.
