Making sure your Bulboxer Staffy Bull is comfortable around other dogs is necessary which is why this activity will show you how to be social with your dog! You can do this any time of the year and it's totally free - nothing better than that!
Step
1
Dog park
Bring your Bullboxer Staffy Bull to a local dog park where they can run and play freely with other dogs. If you frequent the dog park on a regular basis, your pup will grow quite used to playing with new dogs and become quite the social butterfly! Take your dog's lead and make friends with some of the other owners while you are there.
Step
2
Playdate
Find one of your human friends who has a dog and then invite them over for a playdate. Let your dogs run and play as much as they'd like. Being outside and away from your dog's "home territory" is a good idea the first few times your friends visit so that your Bullboxer Staffy Bull doesn't get too possessive.
Step
3

Just looking at a Bullboxer Staffy Bull and you may automatically think that they are natural born guard dogs. Well, you are right! These pups were born to protect you and they absolutely love having this job. As they are fiercely loyal to their family, they will brave any danger to keep you safe. However, you need to be sure to harness this power in a controlled and beneficial way - you don't want your Bullboxer Staffy Bull to try to "guard" you against friends and family! You can train your pup to be a guard dog in any weather, rain or shine, and it is relatively inexpensive to do so.
Step
1
Learn the basics
Before you begin your guard dog training, you need to make sure your dog is well versed in basic obedience. Sit, stay and come are all essential commands that your dog needs to be able to follow. These will all come in to play when you train your pup to be a guard dog and ensures that you are always the one in control and that your Bullboxer Staffy Bull is just following your commands.
Step
2
Bark on cue
The best way for your dog to "guard" you is to simply alert you to any dangers. Barking is the best way a dog can do this. Begin training your pup to bark on cue by saying "bark" anytime they naturally let out a woof and then rewarding them with a treat. Your smart Bullboxer Staffy Bull will quickly learn that when you say "bark" they should open their mouth!
Step
3
Practice scenarios
Have a friend help set up practice scenarios in which your dog should bark. Have your friend knock on your door and tell your dog to bark. Have your friend enter your home through a back door and tell your pup to bark. Have someone simply peek in your window and tell your pup to bark. Set up any situation in which you would like your dog to protect you and act it out. Practice frequently and you will soon have a well trained guard dog on your hands!

Activity description
Bullboxer Staffy Bulls need a good amount of exercise a day and if you are not lucky enough to have a big fenced in yard, your pup will definitely benefit greatly from lots of walks. These big dogs can also be big leash pullers which means a nice walk may frequently turn into a "pull" instead. Training your dog to walk nicely on a leash is a great skill to learn to save your leash holding arm and will also help your pup feel better on the walk (pulling the whole time is exhausting in a bad way). Practice nice walking anytime the weather is sunny and as frequently as you'd like - it is free!
Step
1
Good equipment
Invest in a good leash and non-pull harness that fits your dog well. Avoid choke collars which can hurt your dog. A harness that goes under your dog's arms or a head harness is recommended to help with a pup that pulls. Try your new equipment on your dog and make sure it fits them comfortably before you head out on your walk.
Step
2
Heel
Hold your dog close by your side so that you are both walking at the same pace, next to each other. Say the command "heel" and give your dog a treat to keep them focused on walking near you. At first, you will have to pull your Bullboxer Staffy Bull to stay close to you but after a while, they will hear "heel" and stick to your side, expecting a reward!
Step
3
Practice situations
To make sure your Bullboxer Staffy Bull is ready to walk calmly in any situation, bring them past other dogs and make sure they heel as the dog passes. Walk your dog frequently and practice good walking habits on every walk to maintain consistency. Soon your Bullboxer Staffy Bull will walk nicely, without pulling, every time you go out!
