    Default Excited Boxer parents waiting for our little girl to see her new home

    Hi all

    just thought i would do a quick intro, my name is Bima and i have a young family ( 2 little ones both under the age of 2 lol ). My youngest is turning 2 in a couple of weeks so my partner and I have decided to add another family member by putting a deposit on a little female purebred boxer. She is tan in colour with a few splashes of white and is soooo gorgeous, she will be ready to make the trip home on the 24th of jan .

    As this is really my first dog that i am responsible for ( i did have a german shepard as a youngster ), i thought it would be best if i joined up to talk with other dog owners and also get some tips and pointers along the way .

    Will post some pics up when she comes home

    cheers

    Bima

    It's almost like being pregnant but without the annoying big belly.

    Welcome and look forward to seeing your new bundle of joy.

    I have learnt heaps on this forum - including stuff I wish I'd known when I had my first dog. But my current dog Banjo has benefited a lot from the wisdom I have found here.

    NSW.

    There may be classes run at Erskine Park, if you email the staff at Dogs NSW they might be able to tell you if there are any puppy classes or training nights.

    Otherwise your local vet clinic sometime know of puppy school classes.

    Oh, and

    We'll all be looking forward to hearing about your new pup's antics when she comes home!

    Hi Boxer

    Many vets run puppy classes for puppies under 4 months old. After that most dog obedience clubs have classes and there are private trainers around as well. Though a good place to start to find those are by asking around the more obsessed trainers - who compete - so dogs nsw is a good place to look for the competition dates and venues and the clubs.

    AWL and RSPCA also have a list of who runs puppy classes around your area.

    There may also be a boxer club in NSW that runs classes - especially if you're thinking of trying dog show competitions (conformation).

    Hopefully your puppy's breeder should be able to answer all your questions or at least point you in the right direction.
