Jacob is doing great. He is so sweet and gentle. He has been sleeping with me in bed and then doing his rounds in the kids beds throughout the night. No night accidents what so ever. Once he is settled in for the night, that is it. He is a snuggle bug for sure.
He is a little aggressive at the windows when he sees someone walking in the neighborhood. We are working on that. I have been leaving him roam the house with no access to rooms where the windows are in front of the house to avoid him barking and jumping up on the windows when he sees people. He also pees a bit when we get home since he is so excited. With time and a little training I am sure he will be fine.
He listens well, sits, lays down and gives his paw when asked to do so. He is not a chewer and sticks to playing with his toys and the kids.
He gets along well with my older boxer. My old guy is actually playing catch and chewing bones again which he hasn't done for a while. They got along immediately with no problems. I think Cody is glad he has a budy. Sometimes he just looks at Jacob with that look of "What is wrong with you?"
It is nice to have a younger dog in the family again. The kids cannot get enough of him and he tolerates them with no problems. The kids always want them where they are. I have heard "Jacob" a million times in my house since I got him. He is getting a lot of attention.
It took me a long time to decide to bring another boxer into our home considering Cody's age, but I am glad I made the decision. Jacob is a great dog. With a little obedience training we can work on the barking at the windows and walking on a leash. He drags me when we walk...lol!
