Boxers will naturally have a tendency to favor one "packman" over another. For example, our male boxers seemed to have an affinity for me (a male) whereas our females for my wife. Snapping is done when a dog is jealous (such as food mainly, or protecting their food). A dog trainer may be of help. You need to be "properly trained" (like Ceasar on Dog Whisperer says), to understand what's causing it and to end it. Don't get rid of the boxer, they are an absolutely wonderful breed but there is always jealosy with them (either with another boxer you may have, or with you and their favorite (in your case, your husband). Our female boxer would always grumble if I showed affection to my wife, or let us know she was there and she didn't approve of the affection I would show my wife. Another female boxer would come up and push between us when we would show affection towards each other. It's more like the female boxer saying "hey, I'm here! What about ME!"
