Introduction

The Boxita is a designer breed. This hybrid is a mix of the Boxer and the Akita. Both of these parent breeds are large dogs and belong to the working group. They are highly athletic dogs, and they possess a moderate amount of energy. Providing them with ample opportunities for exercise is sure to make for a happy and healthy Boxita. These dogs are loyal, which makes them great guardian dogs (and, they can be trained to be therapy or service dogs as well). Highly intelligent, should you need to be away from home, you can leave them with some chew toys and DIY activities that will relieve boredom and keep them out of mischief.

Activity description
The Boxita's Akita parent breed is built for walking and running. In fact, most Akita pet parents enjoy walking or jogging with their dogs. It is a natural form of exercise for the Akita parent breed. It is also a popular exercise with Boxer pet parents. Pet parents of the hybrid pup say the Boxita makes an eager and willing exercise companion. Care should be taken when the Boxita is a puppy; growth problems can develop when these puppies are pushed too much to exercise. Never walk your Boxita for more than twenty minutes before they are one year old.
Step
1
Stretch
Did you know that you can stretch both yourself and your pooch before a workout? You will stretch your dog much the same way as yourself. Stretch their front legs gently. Do the same with their back legs. You can use this time to bond with your dog. Before you begin, stretch your limbs as well.
Step
2
Go for it
Again, when beginning a walking exercise regimen, you will want to start slowly, particularly if your dog is less than one year of age. Jogging with a very young Boxita is not recommended. Work from fifteen minute walks to twenty minutes at one time. Slowly make your way to thirty minutes. At this time you can work up to jogging.
Step
3
Walk in the park
Some individuals may not feel comfortable walking in their neighborhood, particularly if there is a large volume of cars. Others do not have a big enough backyard to effectively walk their pooch. Your local city park may have a walking trail that you can utilize. If you are near a dog park, many of them have walking tracks or enclosed areas where you can walk or jog with your pup.

Activity description
With a dog that is made to work - particularly to pull - as the Akita parent breed was, bikejoring is a great activity that you can utilize to provide exercise for the both of you. Bikejoring is simply the pulling of you while on your bicycle by your Boxita. Some pet parents may use this form of exercise for the Boxita because, when walking normally, the Boxita may pull you down. However, one cannot just jump on the bike one day and allow the Boxita to pull away. Rather, you must train your Boxita before you strike out on this activity. This is an activity that can be done in almost any type of weather, and the cost is just that of purchasing a bike if you do not have one already.
Step
1
Training
Experts recommend that you yourself stock up on safety equipment in order to train your dog in bikejoring. Never train near cars. Perhaps you can begin in your own backyard or at the park. It is also a recommendation that you have taught certain commands, such as stop or whoa, before undertaking bikejoring.
Step
2
Getting aroundcCrowds
Once you feel that your dog is ready to go bikejoring out around people, then start small. If you trained your dog at the park, then, this is a great place to practice. You may go bikejoring on a local boardwalk. Be cautious though; at certain times of the day, the boardwalk can be busy.
Step
3
Skijoring
If your pooch is having a blast joining you for bikejoring, then consider skijoring. This involves putting on your skis and allowing your canine companion to pull you as the two of your traverse the snow. Again, be cautious around crowds. You can never completely predict your dog's actions.

Activity description
The Boxita will greatly enjoy being outside with their family. This high-energy pooch often cannot play enough to exhaust their energy. However, go outside to at least try to put a dent in all the hyperactivity the Boxita is likely to possess. You can engage in a number of games and exercises that will promote health and happiness in your Boxita. Fetch is always a great game. Grab a doggy disc and play a game of Frisbee. Engage your Boxita in a game of chase. This is one of the primary instinctual games the Boxita will love to play.
Step
1
Fetch
Fetch is a popular game with many different breeds. With the Boxita, fetch allows the dog to work off a great deal of energy while tapping into their instinct to catch and retrieve objects. Grab a tennis ball or a chew toy and just give your Boxita a good run in the yard.
Step
2
Frisbee
Dogs love to play Frisbee! However, you will need to purchase a doggy disc in order to play without the risk of irritating the dog's mouth. These doggy discs can be found at most pet supply stores. Play in the same way you would play with a regular Frisbee.
Step
3
Chase
Do you have a sizable backyard? Perhaps you live near the city park or a dog park? Grab the leash and head over for a game of chase! Chase is a game in which your dog will get to work out the innate desire to go after prey. Also, the running involved is great exercise for both you and your pup.

More Fun Ideas...

Flyball Retrieving

The Boxita will thoroughly enjoy a flyball retrieving session. You can make your own flyball game equipment, or you can utilize some pre-made gear. Thirty minutes of this activity will make your Boxita cheerful, and likely have them ready for a nap beside you on the couch.

Hiking

Because the Boxita is a working dog at heart, a leisurely hike spanning the course of an hour is likely to wear down your energetic pooch.

Conclusion

The Boxita is a high-energy dog that loves to spend time with their pet parents and family members. This unique breed will enjoy fun, outdoor games such as chase, and will also enjoy pulling you along as the two of you participate in bikejoring together. The Boxita also serves as a valuable running companion and guardian.
