My name is Minna Nousiainen. I grew up in Finland and moved to the United States in 1991 with my mother and two sisters and my first boxer Mafi. I started conformation dogs in 1989. I helped out at one boxer kennel in Finland prior to moving here. Once living here I bred my first boxer Mafi to an American-bred boxer and got the first dog that I worked in Schutzhund, Ringo. In 1996 I imported a bitch from a Finnish working boxer kennel. She was called Kia. All through high school I helped out at an American conformation boxer kennel in the United States – Bent Brooks Boxers in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin. I worked at a boarding and grooming kennel for over six years as a groomer and kennel helper. I also have two children. I have handler owner trained my 1st Kia dogs granddaughter, Oonas daughter.
My occupation is a boarding and grooming kennel owner as well as a dog trainer. I title client sports dogs as well as my own personal dog and pet dogs with issues. I enjoy grooming dogs. I am also certified in animal Reiki.
I am also the president and founder of East Wisconsin Working Boxer Club.
We are members of USA Boxer Association, United states Schutzhund Clubs of America, Malnois club and Winnegamie Dog Club.
We believe the German/ European line Boxers are true working dogs. Their ability to work has been proven. You can accomplish anything with a good working Boxer.
At Boxnen Boxers we only breed European Boxers. We have been breeding them since 1992. In that time we have selected the right males and females to produce an outstanding Boxer to meet the standard of the European Boxer.
We live and raise our pups in the Fox Valley area of Wisconsin. At an early stage our Boxers are socialized with children and other pets. They receive an early foundation to obedience, are crate trained, and learn independence. We do biosensing testing at an early age. Our pups get exposed to almost everything – elevators, tarps, tunnels, different surfaces, camping, and swimming if weather permits, etc. This is not a business to us, it is a way of life and all of our pups are family.
We are one of the very few BHOT (breeder, handler, owner trained) Boxer breeders in the country.
Our pups are practically house broken when they go to their new homes at 8 weeks old. We get up during the night to let them out by four weeks. At age 5-6 weeks, we separate our pups at night; first in twos, then separately. When they are ready to leave they won’t miss each other as much as a result of this training. We also microchip our pups.
