A Beginners Guide to Effective Boston Terrier Training

Boston terriers are a beautiful breed of dog; they have a charismatic character that is both friendly and loyal, as well as an energetic need to please their owners.

They were originally breed down in size from the vicious pit-bull terriers, though seeing the Boston terrier pets today, it is hard to believe that this affectionate dog could ever hurt anyone.

If you plan on rearing your dog from a puppy then how you approach house training will affect their behavior later on.

Though the Boston terrier breed is known to be intelligent and quite well behaved, it is best to be firm and strong when setting your boundaries or teaching them the basic rules of your home.
