One of the best traits that Bullboxer Staffs have is that they are extremely loyal to their owners. These pups want nothing more than to be by their owner's side, keeping them safe from harm's way. However, this protective loyalty can be harmful if your Bullboxer Staff is not properly trained. You want a dog that will guard you but not one that will harm others unnecessarily (Bullboxer Staffs can be snappy!). Training your pup to be a proper watchdog take a little time but the result is a dog that will guard you the way you want. It is essentially free to train your pup (just the cost of treats) and you can train them anytime you'd like, day or night, rain or shine.
Step
1
Bark on command
Begin by training your Bullboxer Staff to bark on command. When your pup barks in day to day life, say "bark" and toss them a treat. It won't take long for this smart dog to learn what "bark" means. Practice this command frequently, saying "bark" and rewarding your dog. Barking is a useful and safe way for your dog to protect you by looking fierce without any harmful actions.
Step
2
Alert dog
If you want your pup to alert you when someone is outside your home, practice by having a friend walk by and command your pup to bark. Reward your dog and practice again. Try to have several different people help with this step so that your dog knows to bark any time a person is outside.
Step
3
Relax
Teaching your dog to stop barking is just as essential as training them to bark. Once you would like your dog to stop barking, tell them in a calm tone to "hush" or "be quiet". When your dog is able to bark and alert you to danger and also cease barking on command, their guard dog actions are fully in your control, just as they should be!

Wouldn't it be nice if all dogs could get along? Unfortunately, that is not always the case and Bullboxer Staffs are one of those breeds that doesn't always mesh well with other dogs. However, all is not lost! You can definitely help your Bullboxer Staff make new dog friends if you commit to doing it correctly. Slow and steady is the way to go when introducing dogs and these steps will help you do just that and accomplish your ultimate goal - friends for your pup! Stock up on treats before introducing your dog to others. This is the only cost you should incur with this activity. Any time of year is a great time to make friends!
Step
1
Slow and restrained
The first time your dog meets their new friend, it is a good idea to do so on neutral territory. This means you should set up a playdate in a dog park or any middle ground, not in your home or the other dog's home. Keep both dogs on a leash and let them sniff each other briefly and then pull them apart. Do this a few times so that they slowly get to know each other without fights occurring between them.
Step
2
Loose leash
Once your Bullboxer Staff and their new friend are fairly comfortable with each other, leave their leashes attached but let them play freely. Keeping a leash on ensures that you can still control your dog if needed but they have the freedom to play with their friend how they'd like - in true doggy fashion!
Step
3
More friends
Once your Bullboxer Staff gets used to being around other dogs, feel free to take them to dog parks or doggy daycare where they can make even more friends. You will still have to make introductions slowly, however, the more socialized your dog becomes, the easier it will be to make new friends!

Activity description
Bullboxer Staffs are quite energetic dogs and they require a lot of daily exercise. While these dogs are happiest if they have a nice big yard to play in freely, that isn't always an option. However, you can still make fetch a daily part of your routine with your Bulboxer Staff. While your dog will love any kind of fetch, they will especially like playing new variations of the game to keep it interesting. Sunny days are best for fetch as you and your dog will like being outside when the weather is nice. For a small cost, you can get some decent fetch toys that will last quite a while.
Step
1
Frisbee
Head out with your Bullboxer Staff and bring a Frisbee with you. Find a nice open field or park and toss the Frisbee to your dog. The hovering action of the Frisbee will be new and exciting for your dog and they will likely leap into the air to catch the flying disc before it hits the ground. While it may seem very similar to fetch, that floating Frisbee will be quite exciting for your pup.
Step
2
Far fetch
While you probably can only throw a tennis ball so far, you can purchase a special tennis ball tosser which will hurl the ball even further. Load up the tosser and fling it forward sending the ball flying. Your Bullboxer Staff will go sprinting after the ball, getting to run a little extra with each throw. Farther is better when it comes to playing fetch!
Step
3
Rapid fetch
Grab about three tennis balls and bring your Bullboxer Staff to a place where they will be able to run freely. Throw the first ball and when your dog retrieves it, immediately throw the second ball, sending them running again. Pick up the first ball and throw it again before your pup has a chance to rest. Alternate each ball, keeping your dog constantly running and fetching. Your Bullboxer Staff will be tired after this game for sure!
