Format: Paperback
Like most for dummies books, this is essentially a cut and paste of all of their other dog books with the word boxer inserted in place of dog. In a few cases it has stories of the writers experiences with boxers but this book is really nothing special. Try culture clash to get a better understanding of your companion.

There is a lot of information here. From the breed history, to training, to behavior tips, to choosing a Boxer, this is the book. There are few books that contain this much Boxer information. You can't go wrong with this title. The author has written this well, as it is an easy, enjoyable read.

I really enjoyed reading this book on Boxers. I am researching dog breeds before I commit to a new family member. There was a careful balance of enthusiasm for the Boxer and warnings of their specialized needs AND the responsibilites of Boxer ownership.

I especially enjoyed the observations he made between male and female boxers, puppy training, and problematic behaviors.

Even if I don't decide to own a Boxer in the future, this was an entertaining educational read that I would recommend to all.

This books helps you to really know if this is the perfect breed for you, how to pick a breeder, adopting the puppy and adopting it to your lifestyle. It basically covers the life of the boxer from before you take him home to his senior life.

If you are interested on the breed this is a must have!

Format: Paperback
We've just become the owners of a boxer pup, and used this book before and after he joined our family. The book is very easy to understand and contains a wealth of useful material. It also has a lot of general sections that would be relevant to any new pet owner. This isn't a book you would use for hard-core research, but I recommend it for the average new pet owner as an easy to read reference. It was well worth the price.

As a first time Boxer owner, I wanted to get familiar with what makes the breed different from other breeds. This book is very imformative and answers many questions I had and helps in so many ways. In my opinion "Dummies" books are always great, and Boxers for Dummies definitely continues the high standard. I would definitely tell other to be Boxer owners to get this book.
