This may seem like a silly question, but does your boxer like tummy rubs? Our new boxer doesn't seem to care for them. I have never met a dog who didn't BEG for tummy rubs, so this concerns me!

I would imagine we all have our favorite rubs. Maybe your boxer just needs to feel more comfortable before exposing the tender belly for those special rubs. I wouldn't worry - I'm sure she'll come around wink

I love my belly rubs so much that I will just lay in the center of the room on my back with legs in the air just waiting for someone to notice and take action. If they don't notice quickly I'll start sighing. I didn't do this at first though, it took a couple of weeks in my new home.

My Mom gives me doggy massages I love this after a long run or play session. Its also a good relaxing method and good for checking for any lumps. I am also very fond of a neck rub.

I like my tummy rubbed...but my favorite rub is the inside of my back leg. I'll lift it up so my mommy can get to it really good.
