About boxer dogs

If you're looking for a happy, playful and sociable pup, you won't find a better breed. Boxer dogs make great companions. They want to be friends with everyone they meet and love being around people and other dogs, which makes them excellent assistance dogs, too!

This larger breed has boundless energy and needs plenty of exercise, so is ideal for active households. They're the jokers of the dog-world, clowning around and making everyone chuckle, but also love a big cuddle and lots of fuss, making them great family pets.

This breed is intelligent, loyal and excellent at picking up basic training skills. Although they need to keep busy, they're fairly low maintenance and don't need too much grooming compared to other breeds.

Unfortunately, their genetic make-up means this adorable hound is predisposed to various health problems like mast cell tumours, boxer cardiomyopathy, aortic stenosis and hip dysplasia.

If your boxer should fall ill at a young age, treatment for ongoing conditions could really affect your bank balance. You might wish to consider a lifetime pet insurance policy as soon as your pet becomes a part of your family.

Is pet insurance worth it for a boxer?

Your lovable pup may be highly intelligent, but it still relies on you for all its daily needs, including meals, exercise and grooming. As a responsible pet parent, it's your job to do everything possible to keep your boxer happy and healthy. You may also wish to consider protecting your pet with lifetime pet insurance.

Why is finding the best coverage so important for your canine companion?

Treatment for ongoing health conditions can cost a lot

Boxers are prone to various health concerns, which could lead to expensive treatment and even major surgery. Ongoing issues that develop at an early age, like a heart murmur, mean vet bills soon add up, costing you a small fortune in the long run.

When you invest in dog insurance, you no longer need to worry about unexpected vet fees and can make sure your boxer gets the care it needs to be fighting fit again.

Your boxer deserves the best medical care

If your boxer suddenly becomes ill or gets into an accident, the last thing you want is to be worrying about where to find them the right care and whether it's affordable. Our lifetime pet insurance policies sort the financial side and pay directly to your vet, so you can focus on caring for your poorly pup.

Cover your boxer before it falls ill

Your boxer dog can develop a serious medical problem at any time in its life – even as a young puppy! If your pet gets ill before you have a dog insurance policy in place, it makes it much harder to find the right pet insurance company to cover your beloved pup. And even if you do find protection, pre-existing conditions likely won't be included, so you'll still need to pay for the current treatment plan yourself.

To avoid a difficult scenario like this, take out pet insurance while your dog is still healthy. At Purely Pets, we insure boxer dogs from as young as 8 weeks and have no upper age limit for those golden oldies.

What are the different types of boxer insurance policy?

To find the best pet insurance for your boxer dog, you need to know a little about the different types of cover available – here's a quick overview:

  • Lifetime dog insurance: This is the most comprehensive cover available for ongoing protection throughout your dog's life. The same policy will also cover you if your pet damages property belonging to someone else. We'll protect your boxer dog up to a certain amount each year and then reinstate it after 12 months.
  • Maximum benefit dog insurance: This type of plan covers each health condition or accident up to a fixed amount. Once reached, your boxer is no longer covered.
  • Time-limited dog insurance: These policies cover each illness or injury for a specific period or up to a maximum amount, after which your boxer isn't protected.
  • Accident-only dog insurance: This is the most basic policy available and only protects your boxer in case of an injury. If your dog becomes ill, you'll have to pay for treatment yourself.

Here at Purely Pets, we believe that every dog deserves the best protection, and only offer lifetime cover as a result. Contact our helpful customer service team today to discuss the various levels of coverage for your boxer dog.

What's not covered by boxer insurance?

It doesn't matter whether you select the most comprehensive cover or choose a basic policy, there are always a few exclusions pet insurance companies tend not to include in their cover:

  • Vaccinations
  • Microchipping
  • Flea and worming treatment
  • Castration and spaying
  • Nail clipping and other grooming care
  • Cosmetic procedures
  • Pre-existing medical conditions
  • Any injury or illness that happens during the 14-day waiting period

If you're finding it difficult to budget for these routine treatments, it's worth speaking to your vet. They might be able to offer a pet health plan to spread the costs evenly throughout the year to make sure your boxer has everything it needs for a healthy life.

Boxer health conditions

Your boxer might make the ideal loving companion, but it's also predisposed to certain health conditions. As a responsible pet parent, you need to know some of the more common issues so you can spot the signs and get your boxer the help it needs.

Dental disease

Has your boxer got bad breath? Has it got red, inflamed gums? It could be a sign of dental disease. You can prevent this by brushing your dog's teeth and watching what they eat.

Heart problems

The boxer breed can suffer with heart problems like cardiomyopathy and aortic stenosis. Both issues are common in larger breeds and can even cause sudden death before you've noticed the signs.

That's why it's so important to take your pet to the vet for regular check-ups. Heart murmurs and an irregular heartbeat could mean your boxer is at risk of these health issues. Medication and lifestyle changes can help manage the conditions.

Eye problems

Boxers are a flat-faced breed, like French bulldogs, which means their eyes protrude more than other breeds. Common eye issues include cherry eye and corneal ulcer. Watch out for redness, weeping, squinting and rubbing eyes and get your pet to the vet quickly.

Brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome (BOAS)

Flat faces mean respiratory conditions are common. Any snoring, loud breathing or heavy panting needs to be investigated. You can expect your vet to discuss weight management with you and possibly surgery if that doesn't work.

Hip dysplasia

This condition occurs when hip joints fail to develop properly. It can mean a lot of pain and discomfort for your pooch, eventually leading to arthritis in boxers.

To understand the chance of your pet suffering from this condition, you can choose to get them screened through the BVA & Kennel Club Hip Dysplasia Scheme. The health issue can usually be managed but may require surgery eventually.

Cruciate ligament disease

Often seen in boxers, this issue develops when ligaments in the knee become weak and sometimes tear. You'll notice lameness, swelling around the joint, whimpering and your dog sitting with its leg out to the side.

Epilepsy

Boxers are prone to seizures, usually seen before they reach middle-age. Unfortunately, epilepsy can't be cured, but your vet will be able to advise on the best way to manage symptoms and how to keep your pet safe if it does have a fit.

Cancer

Just like us, boxers can get cancer at any stage in their life, but it's more common once they reach middle-age. Mast cell tumours (MCT) are particularly common. Check your boxer daily for any new hair loss, lumps or bumps.

Giving your boxer a happy and healthy life

Boxers make great companions, and such loyalty deserves to be rewarded. What better way to make your dog feel loved than by helping it live each day to the fullest and making sure it has everything it needs?

Here's what you need to care for these adorable dogs.

Exercise and nutrition

Boxers love nothing more than being let loose to run around and explore. In fact, these canines enjoy playtime so much, it's rare to see them simply lying around during the day.

Strap on your hiking boots – boxers need at least 2 hours of exercise every day, which you can split into a few walks. Take advantage of popping to the shops or running errands to meet your dog's daily needs.

What fuels your dog's never-ending energy? Good nutrition. Boxers need plenty of meals to meet their high activity levels and provide what their large bodies need. Feed high quality food and make sure you weigh it out to avoid weight gain. Obesity can lead to a host of other medical issues that your pet could really do without.

Feed your dog two proper meals and a few treats throughout the day, which you can combine with training to reward good behaviour.

Grooming

Although boxers are relatively low maintenance, they still need regular grooming to keep them looking their best. Give them a brush once a week and a bath every couple of months – more regularly if they get really muddy!

Training

These dogs are clever, but they also enjoy clowning around, so you'll need to be firm but fair when it comes to training.

Be consistent and give rewards when your dog is obedient. If you're finding it difficult, get in touch with an accredited trainer for professional advice.

Understanding the art of licking: How mother dogs teach their pups

Dogs share a fascinating language with their offspring that we, as humans, often overlook. One such unique aspect of this language is the act of licking. When puppies start imitating their mother's behaviour as they grow older, one of the things they learn is self-grooming through licking.

Along with other flat-faced breeds like pugs, French bulldogs have a low life expectancy compared to other canines. It's most likely due to their increased risk of breathing issues, skin infections and other common health problems.

Insuring them from the moment they become part of your family means you can get them the care they need for a happy and healthy life.

Yes, compared to many other pedigree dogs, French bulldogs are quite high risk because of the various predisposed medical concerns they face.

French bulldogs can cost a bit more than others breeds to insure, but the exact amount you pay will depend on things like:

  • The type of policy you choose
  • How much protection you need
  • How old they are
  • How healthy it is
  • Whether it's been spayed or neutered
  • Where you live
  • The amount of excess you choose to pay

At Purely Pets, we only offer lifetime plans for your French bulldog to get the best protection. Choose from 15 levels of insurance to find one that fits your needs and budget.

If the cost of insuring your French bulldog is making you think twice about getting protection, there are a few ways you can save on your premiums:

  • Increase the amount of excess you pay when you make a claim.
  • Choose to insure multiple cats and dogs with us.

To find out how much you could save by taking these steps, get in touch with Purely Pets today.

French bulldog owners want only the best for their four-legged friends. A lifetime insurance policy provides ongoing protection against health issues and injury year after year, making it the most comprehensive cover and best option for your pup.

There are no limits to how many injuries and illnesses you claim for, as long as they apply to your policy and don't exceed the annual monetary limit of your plan.

Despite their name, Frenchies were first bred to be lap dogs in England. They were created as small versions of the British bulldog and made excellent companion dogs.

They joined English lacemakers on visits to France, where they soon picked up their new moniker and became the breed we now know and love.

Yes! Frenchies love being around people and they can suffer from separation anxiety if left alone too long. Their affectionate and playful personality means they'll get along with everyone, from toddlers to grandparents, and they're also extremely loyal to their owners.

As long as you spend some time training your Frenchie (especially when they're young), they are usually well behaved. It's important you get to know your four-legged friend well to spot any signs of behavioural problems and get professional help before they get any bad habits.

Like all canines, French bulldogs bark, but they aren't known for excessive barking. If yours does start to be more vocal, it might be because something's making them excited or nervous.

If you're looking for a dog that doesn't leave hairs everywhere they go, French bulldogs are a great choice. To minimise shedding, bathe them every couple of months and brush their fur once a week or two.
