The Boston Terrier is a special kind of dog! Ask any Boston pet parent, and they will agree. Boston Terriers seem to have two activity modes: hyper, energetic and playful episodes peppered with lazy, deeply sleeping rest periods. The Boston Terrier loves - and desperately craves - a moderate amount of activity; however, because the Boston Terrier is a brachycephalic dog (meaning their snout is shortened and they may experience breathing difficulties) these spurts of activity must be taken throughout the day rather than packing all exercise into one lengthy playtime. The Boston Terrier is a very playful dog, and they love games of fetch and tug of war. However, you will want to plan for activities when the Boston is inside due to weather (heat and humidity can have a negative impact on the Boston's breathing). You can plan for a number of brief activities that are beneficial to the health of your Boston as well as providing a chuckle for yourself.
The Boston Terrier is always a source of energy and excitement. They provide fun moments of entertainment for their family by simply performing a great deal of silly antics. The Boston Terrier needs several short bursts of activity daily. Owners should always be cautious about encouraging energetic play lasting long than a half hour at a time. In addition, Boston Terriers, when exercising outdoors, should only exercise during cooler times of the day. Those living in very humid areas should take caution any time of the day. The great thing about Boston Terriers is the idea that they are small enough to exercise properly indoors as well as outdoors! Your Boston baby will bond with you as you spend time engaging him in activities, then they will plop down on the couch right beside you and take a well-deserved nap!
