Solitary Boston Terrier

July 7th, 2008 · 11 Comments

Having a Boston terrier puppy is a big commitment, and just like a baby we want to spend as much time as possible with them when we first have them.

However, most of us have to also go out to work to earn money, and most bosses would not be pleased to hear that we want to book a month of work to settle the new puppy into the home.

If there is nobody else at home whilst you are at work there are a number of ways in which you can help to provide your Boston puppy with a fun and entertaining environment.

Many people leave the puppy in the crate whilst they are out, but some may feel that they prefer to give their beloved pup more space and entertainment, especially if he is still getting used to the new home.

One option is to leave the pup in a room that has a floor that can be easily cleaned (no carpets - remember the risk of accidents!), and with a baby gate or other large enclosure that will stop him from escaping from the room.

He will be able to run around and see out, but at the same time will be safe and won’t be able to get to other parts of the home and wreak havoc whilst you are out!

There are a number of things that you should leave in his new play area. You should have somewhere for him to sleep, such as one of the fleece beds that you can get from pet shops or even his crate with the door removed (this is a good idea, as it allows the pup to get used to the crate for future use.

You should always make sure you leave fresh water for him, although do not leave food unless it is his feeding time.

You should also leave facilities for him to take a pee if he needs to, such as the special pads or even some old newspaper - this could save you having to clean up “big puddles” every day!

Finally, leave some appropriate toys for him to entertain himself. Do not leave things such as rawhide products, pigs ears, and plastic toys. Instead choose products that he will be able to safely play with when alone, such as rope and fleece toys.

As an additional extra you could even try leaving the radio on whilst you are out. Don’t be tempted to leave him listening to the latest death metal track!

Instead, pop on some soothing music that will help him to relax and will eliminate other noises that may make him jumpy such as the phone or doorbell ringing.

    I just found this site and appreciated your breaking down what is safest for my Muffin (THE muffinupalis!) as I’ve tried all kinds of things but he still gives me that LOOK when I get ready to go out, and Kroger doesn’t appreciate his sitting in the lil seat! later and God bless, jan aka shy

    Another great option is to see if there is a puppy Daycare in your area. This option helps your little angel become socialized to other dogs and possibly even people. The one I have used is a local pet store (mom and pop type, not a big chain). They give great care to my baby. An added bonus, when I do have to go somewhere and leave her, she already is familiar with the people and other animals. As with childcare, be selective, but it can be a great option if you can find a good one. My Nauni loves to go visit even when she doesn’t have to go there.

    Daisey, Dolly, & Duffy have a doggie door to a secure backyard where they can go in and out as they please. They play and can run and have lots of fun while I am gone. The door fits right i nto the sliding glass door and can be removed when ever you want. Also made potty training EASY!

    I always say “I’ll be back” which seems to satisfy her.

    I like this site with all the good ideas and I look forward for the next one. My “Rocky” is 3 yrs old and is an excellent pal,plus real smart. I trained him to come with a police whistle when he ranges to far. He returns at a full gallop. Bob

    Our little “Dimples” has been left in a large room with no carpeting, since she was 6 weeks old. We have a baby gate to keep her in the enclosed area. She has her bed, clean water, toys, and chewy things in her play room. At first, she had wee wee pads, but, she uses newspapers better to do her pottying on. We tell her we will be back soon, and turn the radio on for her. She hasn’t chewed on things that are not hers. She is a good, sweet little girl!!!
