It’s friendly, devoted, and loving nature makes it an ideal companion dog. If trained and socialized properly at a young age, it can be used as a therapy dog to provide comfort and affection to the sick and the old. It gets along well with kids as well as other animals in the family. It does have the energy and strength required for some tough jobs, but otherwise remains patient and relaxed. Since it is protective of its family and naturally aloof with strangers, it does well in guarding its territory and family against danger.



Although they are not hyperactive, their high level of energy demands an hour of intense exercise every day. Boxerdoodles love to jog and run, especially in wide, open spaces. They can adapt to apartment life, provided they are taken out regularly for long leashed walks and play-sessions in a fenced yard. Without sufficient exercise, these dogs become bored and may show signs of aggression.


Both the long, wavy and curly coat varieties need frequent brushing to keep away dead hairs and prevent matting. Professional clipping is required to make their fur easy to manage, and care for. For those with the shorter coat, a weekly brushing is sufficient to make them look clean and shiny. A damp cloth could be used to wipe their short fur after an active day. Keep their ears clean to prevent bacterial infections and bathe them with a mild dog shampoo when necessary.

Health Problems

Since these dogs do not suffer from severe genetic health issues, they are often regarded as hardy breed. However, they are susceptible to allergic reactions, skin infections, PRA, epilepsy, and hip dysplasia.


Being sensitive, smart, and bright by nature, a boxerdoodle can be managed and trained, especially with rewards and treats. Since it does not respond to harsh treatments, taking up rough and oppressive methods for training could backfire and induce stubbornness. Teach the puppies to become obedient and make them socialize by introducing them to other dogs. Ensure fairness, firmness, and consistency while training the pet.


An adult boxerdoodle requires around two and a half to three cups of dry dog food every day. A nutritious diet consisting of protein sources like fish and chicken would provide the sufficient amount of energy needed to perform some serious tasks involving strength and agility.
