At Laymani Boxers, our girls spend the last part of each pregnancy and the time spent raising puppies right in the house. When we don’t have puppies, we rotate our females in and out to ensure that they remember how to behave indoors.
Our adults are under regular veterinarian care. We value her advice and professional service, so innoculations and tests are all performed at her clinic. All are routinely treated with heartworm preventative and flea/tick preventative. Any outside additions to our line are housed separately until cleared and immediately tested for heartworm, parasites, thyroid deficiency and brucellosis (as appropriate). During their first visit to our vet, they are brought up-to-date on rabies shots and innoculations. They are also weighed and receive a general physical.
The Laymani Boxers live as a natural community, romping within a 60×90 outside enclosure and several smaller play yards. They have an adjacent, freely accessible, 16×24 heated indoor space for sleeping and cold weather. Walks happen on the back-forty acres, a mile-long journey through grassland, surrounded by forest. Females in estrus, near whelping or feeding puppies need outside exercise, but protection from rough play, so we also have two smaller enclosed areas surrounding two 10×10 shaded kennels with filtered water and wood-chip-cushioned doghouses.
Their diet consists of a premium dry dog food and a selection of raw meaty bones (RMB), plus NuVet supplement tabs. Pregnant and lactating females receive an additional calcium supplement.
We feel that varying their routine and their food, while providing lots of loving human interaction, makes for happy, healthy Boxers! Click here for photos of our Boxers at play.
Serrano is an AKC-registered Fawn Male with Black Mask and White Markings. He was born in May 2016 and is 8 months old in these photos.
He is even-tempered, like his Daddy (Rumor) and will be a big Boxer when fully-grown. His Momma (Luna) is also a large Boxer.
Dax is a handsome AKC-registered Reverse Brindle (nearly Sealed) Male. He weighs around 75 pounds.
Dax lives across the state with his own Laymani Family, though he originated here as a Diana puppy. He will be available for several select breedings.
- Penny is an AKC-Registered Flashy Fawn. “Flashy” is the White Markings on the face, neck and legs.
Natasha’s Moonlight Dancer Luna is a large, AKC-Registered, Classic Fawn.
Luna has competed in International All Breed Canine Association shows, earning an International Jr Championship in the 2014 Buckeye State Sieger, held in Dayton, OH.
She has also qualified as an AKC Canine Good Citizen.
OFA tested – Degenerative Myelopathy (DM) – Carrier, Not Affected
OFA tested – Congenital Cardiac – Normal
These photos are from the day Luna came to us. She had been training for a timed 12 mile run and was quite lean! Her sire is a European import, and her previous owner wanted a working Boxer, trained and shown in the German style. We promptly put some weight on that big frame, so Luna now weighs a muscular 70+ pounds.
Laymani Dolce is an AKC-registered Dark Brindle.
These photos were taken at 10 months old.
She already has a large frame and will add considerable muscle over the next year.
Dolce is a Jessie / Rumor puppy from our own program.
Laymani GiGi Penny’s Promise is an AKC-registered Flashy Reverse Brindle.
These photos were taken at 11 months old.
She should be joining our Laymani Mommas in 2017.
GiGi’s Momma is Penelope and her Daddy is Dax.
In 2016, we kept two puppies to add the Laymani program.
Serrano is a male Classic Fawn from Luna and Rumor.
He is about 6 months old in these photos (October 2016).
GiGi is a female Flashy Reverse Brindle from Penelope and Dax.
She is about 4 months old in these photos (April 2016).
Lollipop was spayed and retired in October 2016.
Our normal procedure is to retire our Mommas at 5 years old.
She went home to live with a Laymani Family just after Thanksgiving.
To educate our Laymani Families, we have included the… American Kennel Club / American Boxer Club – Official Standard for the Boxer
