Another thing I forgot to mention, if you give your dog bones or things to chew on, encourage them to be eaten in close proximity to you and your children. My dog regularly brings bones to the children wanting them to hold them for him while he chews! When we first had him (he was five months, unhousetrained, underweight, never been walked, with no manners whatsoever) he did occasionally growl at the children if they go too close to his bone. (Understandably he was just insecure) It was immediately taken off him and he was given a stern look and a "no" Later on,one of the children would give him it back. He quickly learned that they were not any threat to his bone. However loving your dog may be with the children, there will be times when he wants to be left alone, and children should respect that. If you sense your dog is getting fed up with your kids attention, encourage him to leave the area and provide somewhere he can go where he won't get bothered. An experienced dog owner should be able to control their dog just using their tone of voice and facial expression. If you look into your dogs eyes and he growls or stares you out, he is challenging your authority and this is a big a big no no, and you will need to take steps to gain control. A dog who understands his rank in the household, will not keep eye contact with you for long. Especially if you're sporting a mean facial expression.
If you are using a cage, theory has it that a dog doesn't like to soil in its sleeping/eating area, so as soon as the dog comes out of the cage, pop him outside / onto paper or whatever you do, and really praise him if he 'performs'. Gradually increase the dogs time in the cage (within reason) so he learns to hold his bladder longer. Never shout if he soils in the house, they're no different to children, and dogs learn much quicker if you praise the good behaviour instead. Good luck,and I hope you find your dog as rewarding as my hubby and I find ours. (Rott/ pit cross and presa canario)

Hey Jenn, I recently got a boxer - pitbull and he is the friendliest dog I've ever had. He earned the name Austin. If I just look at him, his tail goes 100 miles per hour. I've always waited a few weeks to see what kind of personality they have and they always see to earn their own names.

May wanna seach on Petfinder.com in your area shelters/humane societies. My husband and I found our pit/boxer mix through Petfinder.com. She is just 11 weeks old now. She is a great puppy. Very smart. She's small though. She is only about 7 lbs. She was the runt of the liter that was brought into the shelter by a man that bred the parents and the puppies didn't turn out (physically) like he wanted so he brought them to the shelter. You can get great puppies at rescue shelters/humane societies. I encourage you to check petfinder.com out. Hope this helps. Ill keep my eye out as well.

I just adopted a rescued 5 month old boxer / pit mix. In the first week she has proven to be the most loving intellegent puppy I have ever met! She came from abusive home at three months. she has never shown any signs of trauma. She only wants to be loved and will cuddle next to us. She ajusted to the cat in the house perfectly. She just looks at her and at us like .... ok ill leave her alone. Smartest puppy easy to train! Wants only to love and please us!! This is only after two weeks!

Our boxer/pit mix is also the sweetest dog on earth, and incredibly affectionate with all children (and all people, for that matter). When the fedex truck comes, she's so thrilled she could die. She's much more physically affectionate than our other dogs (who are also as sweet as can be).

Positive reinforcement works the best, not harsh corrections.
Bully breeds are known as "nanny dogs" in England because they're so sweet and patient with kids. Just don't ever hit them or shout at them, and they'll be sweet as can be. Ours is a rescue dog, and who knows what happened to her, but she has still been a wonderful, affectionate dog. She does get tense around stranger dogs (although she's always fine with our other spayed female, a husky mix).

Just learn as much as you can about positive reinforcement. For example, when we first adopted Tiva, she growled once at my husband when he came near her bowl while she was eating. Instead of shouting and stomping around, we said a firm no and then worked a lot on having her "wait" when I came near her bowl, and then rewarding her with a hot dog. Now whenever anyone, child or adult, comes near her bowl while she's eating, she stops and waits for that elusive hot dog she hopes will fall in her bowl (and occassionally one does).

Hi Elizabeth,
Training comes natrually, Pitbull breeds likes tearing up things and biting on stuff. You will have to buy a couple of toys. With the kid situation they will have to grow up around them and you will have to check your dogs parents and ancestors.

I have a male boxer (Max) that just mated with my female pit (Penny) on the 26th and the 27th of March. They are both fawn With white and Black markings. She was a rescue baby and I beleive this was her first heat. Iam new to the baby making process for dogs. Any advise?

How much do boxer/pitbull mixes usually weigh full grown? Also everyone keeps freaking out when they learn that she is a pitbull mix. Yet when they meet my puppy they can't stop on how she is the cutest and sweetest dog, and then insist that she will later turn and can never be trusted. How can I convince them that she is a great dog and is like every other kind of dog is depends on how you train them???
