Does Your Boston Terrier Want To Be With You?
This may come as a surprise...but if the tables were turned, and the Boston Terrier could choose his owner, would he have chosen you?
We are always trying to figure out the right breed for us, and usually a dog is chosen on the "he's so cute and adorable" factor.
But if in an upside down world, the dog was the one skipping around the neighborhood looking for the right owner, would you be chosen?
Interesting thought isn't it?
So, let me tell you the three things that your Boston Terrier is looking for in you. If you match all of these then you can pat yourself on the back for being a perfectly suitable owner.
Firstly, are you someone who has time to spend with your Boston?
If it were upto him your Boston Terrier would go EVERYWHERE with you! They thrive on human company, much more so than most breeds. This doesn't mean that they cannot be left alone; but they are much happier when you are around.Knowing how much they love being with you is what drew me to them from the start.
If you find yourself not being home for most of the day, then you would not be an ideal owner for a Boston Terrier.
Secondly, how do you rate on what I call the "affection and passion factor"?
Let me illustrate this point with a quick question.
You will often find that although you have many things you are interested in, are you passionate about all of them?
Of course not. We all have varying degrees of things we are passionate about.
If what you want is just a dog around the house, but not one you are willing to invest your time and affection in the relationship, I'm afraid a Boston Terrier would not choose you.
Your Boston Terrier wants to be an active part of your home and family, and not just a pet you keep in the back yard or confine in a room for him to circle around endlessly.
Your Boston has unlimited affection for you, and he wants to be with you to accept this boundless affection.
And finally, do you like being the envy of other dog owners?
With the right methods and time invested, your Boston Terrier has the potential to make all your neighbors green with envy!
Being a very intelligent breed you can not only train him to listen to your every command; but you could teach him tricks which will make peoples jaw drop in amazement.
Imagine being the talk of your neighborhood when they are struggling with their dogs' behavior, while your Boston Terrier displays behavior that makes you proud.
And the best part is you can take all the credit for it :)
Your Boston Terrier wants you to take advantage of his inherent gift to reward you with good behavior and tricks because of their superior learning ability.
So, do you meet the three factors and desires listed above as an owner? If you can say "yes", then you know you ARE a great owner that your Boston Terrier loves to be with.
But it goes without saying, that, for you to get the best out of your Boston Terrier, you need to use the right methods.
So I leave you with a question - are you using ways to train and raise your Boston Terrier with methods he responds to?
