However, such fences offer no protection from strange dogs, children or other intruders who can come into the yard, so outside play still must be supervised. Furthermore, invisible fences do not provide a physical barrier or buffer between the dog and kids on bikes, passing cars, squirrels and other moving attractions. Such stimuli can arouse the dog into testing the limits of the fence and getting shocked, which will condition him to associate the pain with the objects he is focused on at the time. Thus, those situations will come to cause frustration and escalating aggressive behaviors. On-leash walks are the best answer for safe daily exercise for your fun-loving Boxer.
Discuss electrical fences with the breeder of your choice. He may be able to advise you of his success (or disappointment) with such a device. If used properly in the right setting, the electrical fence can be effective and helpful (and far less expensive than erecting a conventional fence). Safety is the Boxer persons first priority.
