This is where TRAINING comes in. My two are very careful around kids, even the little ones - but they do need to be taught how to be careful.Boxer's are called boxers because they jump up and look like they are boxing.This may frighten your daugther.It can be corrected most of time but if excited they still jump.The best thing to do would be to take your daughter to meet an actual boxer to see how she reacts (sometimes as much as a lick in the face from a dog can terrify a child).Boxers can forget there own size sometimes also.
Boxers really love children but as all dogs they should always be supervised.
I've had three boxers and all of them shed like crazy on kibble. A weekly brushing keeps this at bay. I have never had a problem since they have been on raw. I definitely think it's food related.Also...they shed tiny little short hairs like craaaazy.
