The Boxer dog originated in Germany in the 19th century as a hunting mastiff dog and guard dog. The name “Boxer” either originated from their ancestor Bullenbeisser or their act of pawing (or “boxing”) at dog toys, bowls or pet parents (affectionately). The Boxer dog breed has a short coat in colours like fawn and brindle and sometimes, white markings. They are large, muscular, athletic and square-headed with a short nose. Boxers are usually friendly, playful and childlike. They often jump or do a “kidney bean” dance when they are happy, where they twist their bodies into a semi-circle resembling a kidney bean. They also have one of the longest puppyhood stages of all dog breeds (they fully mature at 3 years of age). Which rightfully gives them the adorable nickname of “Peter Pan”.
They are legendary for their drools, patience and outgoing personality. They may be prone to snoring as they are a brachycephalic dog breed (with short snouts). Whether you are a new pet parent or planning to adopt a Boxer dog, here are the best dog products to give them a healthy and happy lifestyle.
fOOD FOR your boxer dogs
Like other large dog breeds, Boxer dog food should be a balanced mix of meat and vegetables that are formulated to meet their unique nutritional needs.
Pups who are younger than 3.5 months need to be on starter food, such as Royal Canin and Arden Grange. For adult boxers, Royal Canin, Farmina and Taste of the Wild have excellent options.
Looking for the best dog food for Boxers? Try Farmina. Free from GMO and artificial preservatives, it is packed with meaty ingredients full of protein and vitamins that always puts Boxer dog’s health first.
Rich in meaty goodness, Acana is biologically appropriate and uses fresh & local ingredients, including free-run chicken or wild-caught fish. It perfectly mirrors your Boxer dog’s evolutionary diet, ensuring that they stay fit and healthy.
Always consult your vet before making any sudden changes to your dog’s diet or before introducing new dog treats. Introduce your Boxer to new food gradually over a week and not all at once. Replace 15% of his/her old food with new food, so there are no sudden shifts leading to an upset tummy.

bowls for boxer dogs
Invest in a size-appropriate Slant Suction Bowl. It is anti-slip and features a silicone holder & mat to catch spilt food. We also recommend an Elevated Dog Bowl. A lot of boxers, due to breeding and genetics, may face neck pains or issues with the tongue bone (which is why for some boxers, their tongues are always hanging out), and an elevated bowl could help their posture and make eating easier.
Boxers can grow up to be fairly big dogs, so consider investing in a diner, to make it easy for them to eat from. Always have fresh water available. Remember to give your Boxer dog the appropriate amount of food so as not to underfeed or overfeed them.
