Breaking Your Boston Terrier’s Cycle Of Annoying Behavior

June 10th, 2008 · 5 Comments

Boston Terriers are incredibly cute, loyal, and loving dogs, but just like any other animal - or human - can quickly develop bad habits or behavioral patterns. For example, they love to interact and play, and it is important that you dedicate the time to play with them.

If, however, they become unreasonably demanding - such as expecting you to play with them every time you go into the garden or expecting any visitor to the house to play with them - then you need to address the issue, as this can become an annoying problem.

For example, most Boston Terriers love nothing more than a good game of tug or ball, and it is important to engage them in such activities both for their health and fitness and in order to maintain a strong bond between your dog and you.

However, if there are certain toys or games that your Boston Terrier becomes a little obsessive about, wanting you to play them every time you set foot in the garden, then you need to divert his attention and avoid playing those games altogether for a while.

Boston Terriers rely on interaction so you should not simply withdraw your attention from the dog. Instead, hide the toys in question and you will be surprised how quickly the dogs will forget about them and turn their attention to something else - hopefully something that will not require you to be on hand around the clock!

For instance, one good idea is to invest in some soup raw bones. These will last forever, are cheap to buy, and will keep your dog happy and occupied for hours.

You should think of your Boston Terrier like a child - they are brimming with energy, thrive on your attention, and need regular interaction.

They can also have their attention diverted surprisingly easily and therefore you should find that getting them focussed on chewing that raw bone, rather than scampering over to you with their balls and toys every five minutes should be relatively simple.

    Thanks for this VERY helpful tip. I’m just getting to understand my little Daisy, who I got a month ago. Love the information you’re giving about this breed. I’ll be coming back often to check for more information.

    Thanks, Daisy and Mom!

    This was a great tip. I absolutely adore my Boston, Brandy, but she has a bad habit of demanding my attention when I am talking on the phone so I am definitely going to try diverting her attention.

    Thanks,
    Stacy and Brandy

    Very typical behaviour for a Boston is to demand attention also to crawl under the covers in order to sleep. These are very bright dogs and need a great deal of mental as well as physical attention.

    I opine that to get the business loans from banks you must present a good reason. However, one time I’ve got a short term loan, because I was willing to buy a bike.
