The ShowBoxer-L was created to provide a forum for the discussion of issues that are relevant to the responsible breeding, and conformation showing of Boxer dogs. Any topic or question that fits this description is welcome here. This could include (but is not limited to) discussions about the Boxer standard, cropping/docking, contracts (puppy sales, stud service, etc.), handling, show brags, health testing, temperament evaluation, and so on. Since temperament and working ability are of interest to many responsible Boxer breeders, discussion about obedience and other performance events is welcome here.

If you are new to using email, you may want to t

s of "netiquette" before you post to this or any email list. For example, posting in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS is the same as shouting, and is considered to be extremely rude. The use of sarcastic humor is usually a bad idea, since facial expressions and voice inflections don't carry across the Internet, sometimes the written word can be construed differently than the writer intended.. It is customary to "lurk" on a list, reading but not posting, until you feel comfortable with the conventions of email communication and are familiar with the tone of discourse on that list.
