Boxer Gear

These products delight us.

We know this gear is good because we personally use it in our daily life.

Each and every item that makes our collection has been roadtested by Shiva and is guaranteed Boxer-appropriate.

Check back because this is a living list and we’re constantly curating.

Boxer Dog Diaries is reader supported. I may receive a small commission, at no extra cost to you, if you buy via links I share.

Slow Feeder

Outward Hound Fun Feeder

A slow feeder is a must for a Boxer.

Eating too fast has been associated with an increased risk of bloat or gastric dilatation-volvulus, which is known to affect deep-chested breeds including the Boxer.

This one is made of food safe materials, can go in the dishwasher and — unlike many other slow feeders on the market — the placement of the ridges is close enough together to actually slow a Boxer down.

Ignore the kibble pictured and fill it with the the muscle meat and organ component of your dog’s raw meaty bone-based diet.

Sun Shirt

Gold Paw Sun Shield Dog Tee – UV Protection, Pet Anxiety Relief, Wound Care – Protects Against Foxtails, Aids Alopecia

Great as sun protection for white Boxers, and as a light pullover when it’s too warm for a fleece but too cool for nothing.

We love the super soft fabric and the fact the seams go on the outside, making it even more comfy for delicate Boxer skin.

The color range is a cut above too. Shiva wears the pistachio in size 24.

The snug fit means it even seems to have a calming effect along the lines of a thundershirt.

It’s machine washable but we find it’s best to put it inside a wash bag to keep it in perfect condition.

Nail Grinder

Dremel Cordless Rotary Tool Kit

Forget the flimsy grinders marketed for pets and get the real deal.

A Dremel sanding tool can handle Boxer nails and its heavy duty construction means it lasts.

With one of these babies you’ll have all four paws done and dusted in two or three minutes.

Dog Nutrition

Give Your Dog a Bone: The Practical Commonsense Way to Feed Dogs for a Long Healthy Life

The groundbreaking book that began the raw feeding revolution.

If you read one how-to guide on dog nutrition, let it be this.

Ideally you’ll read it before you get your Boxer and feed him optimally from the start.

If you’re currently feeding kibble or home cooking for your dog, you will switch to raw after you read this.

Written by vet, breeder and raw feeding pioneer Dr Ian Billinghurst, Give Your Dog a Bone is super easy to read and full of the why as well as the how and the what.

Dog Health

Dr. Pitcairn’s Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats (4th Edition)

What a resource.

With a PhD in immunology and a lifetime in holistic veterinary practice, Dr Pitcairn is the vet you wish you had.

Open your eyes to how to care for your dog holistically.

Worth it for the insights on fasting, vaccines and detox alone.

A must-read for any dog owner wanting to keep their pet healthy, lifelong.

Whether it’s what to feed or when to neuter, Supercanine uncovers often surprising answers to the big questions you never knew you needed to ask about how to raise a healthy, long-lived wigglebutt free of allergies, itch, “yeasty” ears, paw gnawing, stomach problems and worse.

Susan Garrett is a master dog trainer.

Starmark Pro-Training Clicker

Clickers are fantastic for marking exactly when your dog performs the desired behavior.

They bridge the time delay between that moment and the delivery of the treat reward.

This clicker is simple, costs next to nothing and has a wrist strap, which comes in super handy.

Treat Pouch

Navaris Silicone Dog Treat Pouch – with Clip for Belt – Set of 2

Other treat pouches get gross fast once you fill them with anything but dry treats.

Made out of silicone, this one allows you to use healthy treats of real food whether raw meat or fruit chunks .. and comes clean as a whistle in seconds with warm soapy water.

The clip detaches and the pouch flips inside out for super easy washing.

Magnetic closure keeps the flies out while providing quick access.

Teamed with the clicker this is our go-to set-up for training out on the street.

This 2-in-1 deal is handy as the pouches are compact. With one on each hip, you’ll never be short of treats when you need to reward a behavior.
