Q: When will a female boxer puppy have her first heat?

A: A female boxer dog can have her first heat as early as 7 months old. Although it is not a good idea to consider breeding until she's at least 2 years old.

Q: When should I get my boxer dog spayed or neutered?

A: For a female boxer a lot of vets recommend you get her spayed before her first heat at around six months. This reduces the risk of complications and can help prevent breast cancer later on in life. There are differing opinions on this so consult your vet.

For neutering male boxer dogs the general consensus is at 3-6 months, before they hit puberty. Like in female's doing it early can reduce the risk of some types of cancer.
