Boxweiler Breed Maintenance
The Boxweiler is not a hypoallergenic dog and can shed moderately. Brushing and grooming every other day will help remove dead and loose hair and keep your Boxweiler’s coat healthy. Grooming will also help distribute the natural oils of the skin and prevent dermatitis and in turn, prevent “doggy” odor. The Rottweiler does have a greater tendency to drool, whereas the Boxer does not. Your dog’s drool level will depend on which parent breed your dog mostly resembles. However, given many Boxweiler’s heads resemble the Rottweiler’s, you may find the drool more than anticipated. Frequent nail clipping is also suggested for your Boxweiler. The Boxer breed more commonly suffers from dental and gum issues, and this also increases the risk of drooling.
Boxers and Rottweilers often suffer from von Willebrand's disease, Addison's disease, and hypothyroidism. Secure pet health insurance today to avoid high veterinary care costs.
