Affectionate, intelligent, fun-loving, loyal, and fairly needy, the Boxador temperament is one of playfulness, devotion, and love. A few Boxer-Lab mix characteristics: this spirited crossbreed is a fantastic playmate for kids and adults alike, and is quite the people-pleaser. Its easygoing disposition makes a Boxador a good match for families with other pets, but experts suggest that early socialization with children and other animals will result in a perfectly-tempered dog. Unfortunately, a drawback of a Boxador's loyalty is that it hates being alone, and will likely suffer separation anxiety if left too long in isolation; these dogs will often express their loneliness by loud barking/howling, or by the destruction of property.
In regards to training, Boxador traits are excellent. Their intelligence, obedience, and willingness to please make them exceptionally fast learners, and they will normally learn a new trick, task, or command with few repetitions. Boxador owners say that positive, reward-based training works best for these dogs.
Likewise, Boxadors make great watchdogs. Their size alone might be enough to deter a potential threat, and their protective instincts will cause them to be suspicious of--and bark at--unknown sights and sounds.
