How long should boxer dogs walk?
Over the course of the 1st year, you can increase exercise with your Boxer, until he or she is meeting the requirements of an adult dog.
A Boxer should have a brisk ( 20 minutes for a puppy, 30 minutes to 45 minutes for an adult) walk each day, given that the temperatures and weather are not extreme.
A good rule of thumb is a ratio of five minutes exercise per month of age (up to twice a day) until the puppy is fully grown, i.e.
15 minutes (up to twice a day) when three months old, 20 minutes when four months old etc.
Once they are fully grown, they can go out for much longer.
By around eight weeks of age your puppy should be eating solid food.
Puppies should be fed three to four times a day therefore if you are currently feeding ¾ a cup of puppy food twice a day you should consider spacing it out by feeding ½ cup three times a day.
Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.
Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.
At a minimum, it's advised to bathe your dog at least once every three months.
You can wash your dog as frequently as every other week (with gentle shampoo, it could be even more frequent).
When in doubt, use your judgment — if your dog starts to smell, it's probably time for a bath.
Puppies under six months of age shouldn't stay in a crate for more than three or four hours at a time.
They can't control their bladders and bowels for that long.
The same goes for adult dogs being housetrained.
Physically, an older dog can hold it, but they don't know they're supposed to.
And grass-eating doesn't usually lead to throwing up - less than 25% of dogs that eat grass vomit regularly after grazing.
Other suggested reasons why your dog might be eating grass include improving digestion, treating intestinal worms, or fulfilling some unmet nutritional need, including the need for fiber.
