Our 4th Annual Walk-A-Thon was a huge success! Despite the cold weather, we had a great turnout and raised $1,073.25 to benefit Stiggy’s Dogs, a group that rehabilitates shelter dogs into Psychiatric Service Dogs for our country’s veterans. Thank you all for your support!
Our 2013 summer specialty show is coming up soon. Join us in Monroe on July 5, 2013 for our Sweepstakes (judge Mrs. Beth Henderson Downey), Specialty (judge Mr. Glen Lajeski), our always fantastic luncheon and our silent auction. Note that we are using MB-F to superintend this show, so you can submit entries directly to them.
Join us at a club meeting in 2013! Meetings are held the first Tuesday of the month, except July and October, when they are held after our Specialty shows (the October meeting is held at the end of September) and our December Awards Banquet.
Our 2012 fall specialty show was a big success, and we enjoyed gorgeous weather this year! Check out the full results on the specialty page — congratulations to all the winners!

The Michigan Boxer Club provides you with a vital line of communication with other Boxer owners and breeders. We will share many years of knowledge and experience to promote our noble breed.
Owners of pet, obedience, agility, and show Boxers are welcome to join us. The Club wishes to encourage and promote purebred Boxers, protecting and upholding the official American Kennel Club breed standard.
The Michigan Boxer Club organizes two Specialty shows a year which are open to puppies over six months of age, up to and including our glorious Veterans of six years and older. We encourage Club members to train and compete for obedience and agility titles at the numerous all-breed shows held throughout the year. Special awards are presented to members at the end of the year for American and Canadian Kennel Club Championships, obedience and agility titles, and other awards of merit.
A number of events encourage the social nature of the club, including our annual dinner and awards presentation, puppy matches, potluck picnic meetings, and various fundraisers, such as our 50/50 raffle and silent auctions.
The Michigan Boxer Club meets on the first Tuesday of each month, except January, at 7:00 p.m. in the Metro Detroit area. At meetings, members receive the Officers’ Reports, and reports on Publicity, Membership, Trophy, Shows, Rescue, Obedience, Agility, and Goodwill, and discuss Old and New Business. The members take part by discussing and voting on Club business. Often, an educational program is included with the meeting on such topics as: handling, judging, breeding, training, and health problems. Members receive the monthly newsletter, The ChatterBoxer, containing meeting minutes, show wins, club news, regular columns, and feature articles. Complimentary refreshments are usually served at Club meetings.
Prospective Michigan Boxer Club members must own or co-own a registered Boxer. Club members agree to abide by the MBC Constitution and By-Laws and the Code of Ethics of the American Boxer Club, as sanctioned by the American Kennel Club.
The Michigan Boxer Club supports local rescue efforts through our annual fundraisers, typically held in conjunction with our Fall Specialty show.
