Why The Boxer Husky Mix Makes The Perfect Watch Dog

Boxer Husky mix

When it comes to designer dogs, there are some pretty strange combinations out there.  These hybrid dogs are often bred for looks but some are breed for their abilities.  But one particular mixed breed dog is produced for both aspects. The Boxer Husky Mix is not only a very beautiful dog but is also a very good working dog.  These high energy dogs are used for various applications but are mainly used as watch dogs.

When it comes to paying attention, the Boxer Husky Mix does a wonderful job of knowing its surroundings.  This is one of the reasons why so many people are using them as family watch dogs.  They seem to hear just about everything that goes on inside and outside of the home.  This will make sneaking up on these canines very difficult.  They can also be very vocal when they hear something which will alert you to any threats that might be coming your way.  But understand some training is necessary so they don’t bark at every little sound they hear.  Your neighbors probably don’t want to hear your dog barking loudly every night and day.  So make sure to get them some obedience training early on.

While these dogs are very alert they can sometimes be shy in nature.  So to make sure your dog doesn’t run away at the first sight of a stranger and you should socialize them when they are puppies.  A great way to do this is to take them along with you when you are out for a walk.  Make sure to go into populated areas where people are around.  This will get them use to the sights and sounds that humans make and they will adapt very quickly.

These dogs can get pretty big and some weigh more than 80 pounds.  So take this in mind when choosing this breed.  While they might do well in a smaller home, they are going to need some space and time to run around in.  So make sure you have a park nearby or an area that allows dogs to run around. These dogs have lots of energy and won’t do well if kept indoors all of the time.  So make sure you walk them at least twice a day and you shouldn’t run into any behavioral issues.
