The Boston Spaniel has a tendency to be stubborn, thanks to one of the parent breeds (the Boston Terrier). This makes teaching your pup a few basic commands even more important, as it is likely they won't naturally follow along and you definitely want your pup to know that YOU are the one in charge. An important command to work on with your Boston Spaniel is "stay". Your pup's ability to follow that command will be important for their safety, as well as for activities that you plan to do together. So grab some treats and get started. Working on commands at home is a free and necessary activity that can be practiced for just minutes a day!
