Tether Tug For Boston Terriers

Boston Terriers are a small, intelligent, and friendly breed. Typically weighing in at under 25lbs, Boston Terriers are very popular as apartment pets. This is because they’re generally very quiet and only bark when necessary. In addition, their coat does not shed excessively, and requires minimal grooming.

Boston Terriers are extremely intelligent, as they were originally developed as utility dogs to hunt rats. Due to their intelligence and ability to obey commands, Boston Terriers are seen in dog agility competitions. Due to their natural athleticism and compact, strong build, Boston Terriers thrive with regular exercise.

Boston Terriers love playing with their owners, and their small size allows them to enjoy indoor play as well as outdoor play. In an adequately-sized home or apartment, Boston Terriers can get plenty of exercise. However, they will still require daily walks, and they love running around off-leash, and retrieving thrown objects, so outdoor activity is still recommended.

However, Boston Terriers that are mainly kept in apartments can have a tendency toward obesity. This breed tends to adjust its activity level to that of its owner. This is helpful for preventing hyperactivity. However, it also means that if you don’t exercise your Boston Terrier regularly, it may become sluggish, and have issues with its weight.

This can be especially problematic due to the short head (brachycephalic) inherent in the breed. Obesity, combined with the inherent small nostrils and narrow trachea of a Boston Terrier, can cause serious breathing issues, wheezing, and snoring.

The best way to address these problems is with regular walks and playtime – combining for 1-2 hours a day. At Tether Tug, we know that it’s hard to find the time to play with your pup – which is why we’ve developed our interactive dog toys!

With our active dog toys, your Boston Terrier can get plenty of exercise, even if you don’t have the time to actively play with it, and give it the intellectual and physical stimulation that it needs.
