Our Breeding Policies
Our kennel name Boxberry was registered as a prefix in 1990 with Dogs NSW.
Our goal is to breed healthy, sound, characteristic and beautiful dogs who are valued family members above all. We take great pride in our puppies. We want to give them the best start in life, the best care, food, socialisation and the best new owners possible.
We only sell our pups to people who are seriously interested in the Boxer, people who value and understand the true nature of this breed. If you buy your puppy from us, you can always contact us for advice and we will try to help you as much and as well as we can. This is a life time commitment for us.
We show and train our dogs and they are health checked before they are bred. You can visit the dam of your pup and sometimes, if possible the sire. We don't allow visitors to our puppies before they are 6 weeks of age. We can provide you with copies of all health testing carried out on the parents of your new puppy.
Our Pricing Policy
Prices for Boxer puppies vary enormously, right across Australia, let alone Worldwide. Currently the mean average range from a reputable breeder in Australia would be from $1,200 to $3,000. Our current prices are listed below. We do not charge more for bitches than dogs. We do not charge more for flashy pups. We do not sell our coloured puppies without papers. We charge the same price across the entire litter, because they all cost exactly the same in time, care, and money to rear.
If we sell puppies overseas, while it seems the price is higher, it is not. We still use the base puppy price for that litter. However, the costs involved with selling puppies overseas are quite high, extra paperwork and paperwork costs, extra running around town for AQIS requirements, etc. We also have to keep the pups here for quite a while longer than the puppies which are sold within Australia, and growing pups need a lot of extra care and feeding.
The price we quote for selling overseas, is inclusive of these things, which often are normally charged as extra’s by some breeders. In overseas sales, the only extra’s we add after the sale, is the cost of extra veterinary expenses and shipping.
The price range for one of our puppies in Australia (i.e. not for export) at the moment is as follows:
Brindle or Red Bobtail $2,000.00 - $2,500.00 under a breeders agreement, which means you would not receive the pedigree papers until the puppy has been desexed (at your expense)
Brindle or Red Long Tail $1,800.00 - $2,300.00, with pedigree papers.
White puppies (when available) - are half the price of their coloured litter mates, they do not have pedigree papers and they are sold under a desexing agreement (at your expense).
Our price includes worming, vaccination, microchipping, vet check, pedigree papers (withheld on bobtails until they are desexed), a starter supply of Royal Canin Junior & a puppy pack with all sorts of Boxer stuff. All of our puppies are raised in a home environment, and they come with a life long Health Guarantee, for genetically inherited problems. We use a company called Dogtainers for all our transport requirements (at the purchaser’s expense). For an export price please contact us.
We use and recommend the Boxer range of dog food.
We guarantee that your puppy will have had all the relevant age required vaccinations, worming and microchipping by the time he/she goes home with you. All our puppies are thoroughly vet checked and if you wish our vet (Dr Geoffrey Treloar – Moorong St Veterinary Hospital) is happy to issue a certificate pertaining to your pup’s health at that time. Dr. Treloar is also available for you to talk to him about your puppy from us, or just to check our credibility, if you so desire.
The Moorong Street Vet Clinic Phone number is (02) 6921 3462.
All our coloured puppies are registered with DogsNSW our state controlling body affiliated with the Australian National Kennel Council.
Our puppies are reared in the house so they become used to 'sounds', like radio, washing machine, vacuum cleaner, pots and pans, etc. They meet the adult Boxers in the house, as soon as they are able to walk. We have a very large back garden for relevant exercise for proper growth.
By 6 weeks the puppies begin full integration with the adults, during supervised play.
Our Waiting List
There is almost always a waiting list for our puppies. Some of the people on the list have been waiting for years for the right pup to come their way. People on our waiting list for a puppy of a certain combination will have a better chance of purchasing one of our puppies than anybody else. Some litters may be born at the "wrong time of the year", or be the wrong genders, colours etc, so there may be a puppy or two left when the waiting list has been offered puppies first.
Our waiting list is for people who have paid deposits which are non refundable. We usually advise people who do not wish to go on our waiting list to keep an eye on our website (the Kennel News page) and when they see something available that they are interested in please contact us at that time.
If you are on our waiting list you could be waiting anywhere between 6-48 months for a puppy from us, depending on your preferences of colour, sex & tail type.
We currently have 12 people on our waiting list for pet puppies their first preferences are mostly for red bobtails.
At this stage we have the following orders, this includes all preferences (as some people have more than one preference)
Red Male Bobtail - 5
Brindle Male Bobtail - 1

Red Female Long Tail - 2

The deposit required to book spot on our waiting list or secure a puppy from a current litters is $500.00 and as mentioned before is not refundable. If you pay a deposit and your circumstances change, we are happy to keep you on the waiting list until you are in a better position to welcome a new Boxer puppy into your family.
If you think you might change your mind, please do not pay a deposit as it will not be refunded !!!!
Our preferred method of accepting deposit is by bank deposits (either via the bank or direct transfer). Our prices are subject to change, if you are on our waiting list you will be notified of any changes in our pricing structure.
Once on our waiting list you will receive regular updates about our breeding plans, and once a puppy of your choice has been born you will receive weekly updates of your new family member. If you decline a puppy offered to you for any reason you will retain your position on our waiting list until we breed the puppy of your dreams.
