Caring for your Boston Terrier requires multiple things: good food, grooming, time devoted to him/her, daily exercise, health upkeep, and your love and attention.
You just need to make sure you do all the right things that’s good for him/her, and your dog will be happy and healthy for years to come.
1 – Feeding your Boston Terrier
The average Boston Terrier eats two meals a day. They thrive on a diet rich in protein and healthy fat. The amount of food you’ll want to feed depends on their size.
Though a smaller breed, they have a voracious appetite and will overeat if given too much food at a time. Carbohydrates, fruits, and vegetables are not required in your Boston Terrier’s diet, but they are able to digest them if they do consume them.
2 – Grooming Your Boston Terrier
The Boston Terrier has a short and fine coat that, luckily, doesn’t hold much grit and dirt (although if they roll in it, they may have a bit more!).
Baths should be given only as needed, as over-bathing will strip the Terrier’s natural waterproofing oils out of his coat.
Regular brushing will ensure that shedding hairs are held to a minimum, and will save you time and effort later when it comes to that.
It is recommended that you get your dog’s nails trimmed regularly. Generally, dogs tend to tolerate these effective Nail grinders more than the clippers because they are quiet and they don’t hurt the dogs. They also reduce the risk of clipping a nail too short.
This soft and durable Dog teeth brushing stick is a good option. It has been designed to be safe for your dog’s gums. It will helps them to clean their teeth by themselves!
Gently clean the inner ear flaps of the Boston with a warm cloth or baby wet wipes. If you see discharge below the Terrier’s eyes, you can gently wipe below their eyes, in a downward motion, with a warm wet cloth or wipe to push discharge down away from their eyes. When the tear stain are more serious, it is recommended to use a Tear stain remover.
Boston Terriers are high-energy and extremely active dogs. While the typical dog requires about 30 minutes of daily exercise, the Boston will often require more exercise. Hiking, running, biking, and playing fetch are all good ways to get its exercise. If you run or bike with your Boston, make sure to go at the pace of your Boston.
4 – Maintaining Boston Terrier Health
You’ll want to provide plenty of exercise and attention to your Boston Terrier, as they are the baselines to their personal happiness. You will also want to ensure you use a Y-shaped dog harness, due to the fact that they are a brachycephalic breed.
The most important thing you can do for your Terrier is to shower them with love and attention. The combination of quality daily exercise and quality attention and loving interaction will guarantee your Terrier will be happy and healthy for years to come!
