Boston Terrier Caring


Boston Terriers are easy maintenance on the grooming front all thanks to their short, tight coats. However, a weekly groom is recommended not only to keep their coats and skin in good condition, but it also helps strengthen the bond between dog and owner. Boston Terriers love the one-to-one contact they get when they are being groomed. With this said, it's still important to teach puppies that being brushed and having their feet, ears and tails touched is a nice experience. This makes it that much easier to trim their nails when needed and to check their ears for any infections which should be done on a regular basis.

Boston Terriers are not high-energy dogs, but they are lively by nature and therefore they need to be given a minimum of 40 minutes exercise a day for them to stay happy and healthy in body and mind. They also enjoy playing lots of interactive games which is a great way of keeping these little dogs stimulated and to prevent boredom from setting in which can lead to all sorts of unwanted and often destructive behaviours around the home.

They are the perfect choice for people who lead more sedentary lives, but it's important to keep an eye on a Boston's weight because without enough daily exercise they are prone to plough on the pounds which can lead to dogs developing weight related health issues which could shorten their lives considerably.

If you get a Boston Terrier Puppy from a breeder, they would give you a feeding schedule and it's important to stick to the same routine, feeding the same puppy food to avoid any tummy upsets. You can change a puppy's diet, but this needs to be done very gradually always making sure they don't develop any digestive upsets in the process and if they do, it's best to put them back on their original diet and to discuss things with the vet before attempting to change it again.

Older dogs are not known to be fussy or finicky eaters in fact quite the opposite is true with Bostons leaning towards eating just about anything that’s put down in front of them. However, this does not mean you can feed them a lower quality diet. It's best to feed a mature Boston Terrier twice a day, once in the morning and then again in the evening, making sure it's good quality food that meets all their nutritional requirements. It's also important that dogs be given the right amount of exercise so they burn off any excess calories or they might gain too much weight which can, as previously mentioned, lead to all sorts of health issues. Obesity can shorten a dog's life by several years so it's important to keep an eye on their waistline from the word go.
