The Boxer Chow dogs are known to be quiet, dignified, graceful, loyal, and comical by nature. However, they dislike being cuddled or fussed over excessively. While they make a great companion to their owner, their devotion extends to the other members of the family.
Neither too shy nor aggressive, these dogs are no troublemakers and will refrain from interfering with others’ businesses. Although they enjoy the presence of kids, they will not accept harsh treatments and abuse. Make sure that you teach your kids to be kind and mindful of your pet dog.
Being territorial and protective by nature, they are mistrustful of strangers and will warn or challenge anyone who is identified as a threat to their family. However, if the stranger is introduced by the owner, the Boxer Chows do not mind being touched by them.
While these dogs need a firm, consistent, and disciplined approach, confrontational training methods including yelling, hitting, and using shock collars can lead to aggressive behavior.
The recommended diet for a Boxer Chow should comprise two-and-a-half to three cups of dry food a day.
