The Boston Terrier dog, although not officially defined as a Terrier by the American Kennel Club, is a small but sturdy dog. It is ideal for people who don’t have a lot of land and therefore cannot keep large breed dogs that are most happy with a large area to run around in. The Boston Terrier is best suited to an indoor life with occasional outdoor play. Their small size also makes them ideal for houses where space is an issue. They are also highly intelligent dogs, which makes training them much easier.
It is a great dog for families because of its loving nature. It is also very sociable and does not mind other dogs or cats. It can be hard to have territorial dogs if you are a social family and like to invite people over. The Boston Terrier is a very friendly dog and will not growl or bark at new people who come over.
A Boston Terrier dog is a very sensitive dog an it is especially attuned to its owner’s moods and feelings. Although it is a sociable dog and will generally get along well with all people in your house, your Boston Terrier may show a particular affinity to one person in the house. They are great companion dogs for the elderly and are very well suited to someone who is older and less active.
Each Boston Terrier is different; each has its own personality. There are high-energy Boston Terriers and there are less active ones who love to nap and cuddle rather than run around. Most Boston Terriers only bark when necessary making them good alarm systems but of course they are not guard dogs because of their size. Some Boston Terriers can be stubborn and you will need patience when training them. Never be harsh with your Boston Terrier when training, be loving and firm for the best results.
If you want the best Boston Terrier dog possible then you should always buy your puppy from a reputable breeder. A reputable breeder is not in it for the money. Inspect your breeder’s premises, is it clean, are the dogs well cared for?
A puppy could potentially be a lovable dog to add to your family or it could be a little terror waiting to happen. Hyperactivity in a puppy is expected and usually wears off as your puppy grows older and settles into a routine.
Irresponsible breeders don’t care about inbreeding or weak genetic pools and produce dogs that have health problems characteristic of the breed. A responsible breeder minimizes the chances of this happening. An irresponsible breeder also produces neurotic puppies that are aggressive and prone to incessant yapping.
You can judge from an adult Boston Terrier right away what type of dog you have on your hands.
* Lucinda, or Lou as I call her, is a great little active dog. A mix of some sorts, terrier, plotthound, maybe even boston terrier – who knows? She is easy to train and is food and toy motivated. Loves dogs, but can pester them to play, but is actually pretty sensitive once in a home situation. In three short days she’s learned the basics and as you can see is very attentive. Available at the Kansas City Pet Project in Kansas City.
