How much food are you supposed to give a Boston Terrier puppy?

one of my relatives just got a boston terrier and are getting mixed answers about how much to feed them and how many times a day. it would be helpful to answer this question soon
it is about 7 pounds, and the store owner who sold the dog to us says something diffferent than the guide does, so i was wondering if anyone knows the correct amount
thanks so much

The guide is normally right.. But, for a dog only 7 lbs., I would feed it half a cup every feeding. My dogs get fed their daily amount ONCE a day; but my dogs are sort of off, so with more normal dogs its best to feed their recommended amount twice a day. Which means you would give half a cup in the morning, half a cup in the evening. Adjust as your dog needs it, if (s)he begins to get fat, feed a little less (I.E. About 1/4 a cup every feeding) or vice versa.

What is a good food for me to feed my Boston Terrier?

I have a nine month old boston terrier. He has a very sensitive stomache, I have a tried a few different types of food including Blue Buffalo and Natural Choice but he still is very gassy. And its pretty gross. Any suggestions?

I have a Boston Terrier, too. I tried many different kinds of food including Blue Buffalo and Natural Balance, and finally found Wellness 5 Mix Lamb in the green bag. It is great! He seems to have a problem with chicken and corn. Now with the Wellness lamb, he has no more gas and his poop is much more solid. Plus he loves the taste!

What are some good names for my boston terrier?

I’m fostering a 5 year old Boston Terrier with heart worms. I was told when I got him that I would have to find a name for him because they were not told his name when they got him. I’ve had a few names in mind but I would like to have some suggestions for it. He cant play any or exercise much because of the heart worms so i don’t really know his personality, but I just need a name that would suit a Boston Terrier.

There is no name that is perfect by breed. Personality is not just defined by how he plays or exercises. Try getting a feel for how he behaves whether its how he responds to certain things like the mail man or a bird or which dog treats are his favorite. If that doesn’t work you you could always try giving him a look over and naming him because of his fur pattern or quirky looks. If that doesn’t work for you, most people name their Boston Terriers an Irish name because most Bostonian people are of Irish decent. Maybe this website can help: http://dogs.suite101.com/article.cfm/unique_dog_names_for_boston_terrier_puppies

How long can you leave a Boston terrier home?

I want to get a boston terrier and the problem is i have to go to school. how long can you leave a boston terrier home?

It depends on the age of the dog. A young puppy will need to go out to pee every hour or two. Once the puppy is a few months old (4-5), it will be able to hold it for longer as you train it and it gets better at holding it.

My boston terrier is now over a year old, and I can leave him home for up to 8 hours. A little longer when absolutely necessary, but I wouldn’t want to do that on a regular basis, and I always make sure to give him enough attention and exercise afterward.

I’m for crating your dog when you aren’t home for its own safety. My boston sleeps most of the day even when we’re home, so he’s not bothered by being in the crate. When I get home, he blinks up at me sleepily and then is ready to play when he’s let out.

If you have a schedule that won’t allow you to be home enough to handle a puppy (which is a lot of work, even if you get an ‘easy’ puppy) I recommend adopting an adult boston. They are awesome and hilarious dogs, and stay goofy and ridiculous for pretty much their entire life.

Gog Hair & Dander Spills - Have A Look at This..You Will Win The War!

Most pet owners know that there’s no such thing as a non-shedding dog. Even hairless dogs shed flakes or scales of dead skin and dog hair, called dander, that settles like dust on flooring and furniture. Some experts believe that dander is a bigger problem than loose dog hair for allergy sufferers. But people who must keep their dog indoors or who are allergic to dog hair and dander do have answers. There are ways to minimize the problem.

If you’re thinking of bringing a new furry friend into your home, you may want to consider a “non-shedding” dog. Though you’ll still have to cope with dander, non- and low-shedding dogs, also known as hypoallergenic dogs, don’t produce as many allergens as other breeds and are better companions for people with allergies.

No matter what kind of dog you have, the first and most important strategy to reduce shedding dog hair and dander is to follow a regular grooming routine. Daily brushing or combing catches dog hair before it hits your furniture or carpet. It’s much easier to remove dog hair and dander from a brush or comb. And regular shampoos and trims will not only reduce shedding, they’ll keep your dog’s hair healthy and shiny. Regular baths and trims keep both you and your dog more comfortable.

Ready to Go Hairless?

When selecting your non-shedding dog, consider first one of the hairless breeds. They may not be as cute as their furry counterparts, but they have the great temperaments of all dogs. Hairless breeds do shed dander, but the ongoing problem of dog hair and dander is much easier to live with. These breeds may have more skin-related problems, and you may need to use sunscreen if you take them outdoors for long periods. Hairless breeds include the Hairless Khala, Chinese Crested, American Hairless Terrier, Peruvian Inca Orchid (or PIO), and the Xoloitzcuintie (or Mexican Hairless).

Low- and Non-Shedding Breeds

If hairless dogs don’t suit your taste, you can choose from the so-called non-shedding breeds that lose less dog hair and dander than most. They come in all sizes and temperaments and make great companions. Some of them have a single layer of dog hair, better for low shedding, or dog hair that is more like human hair.

Single-coated breeds don’t have the thick undercoat that other dogs shed in spring. Single-coat dogs include the Power Puff Chinese Crested (Powder Puff), Poodles, Schnauzers, Portuguese Water Dog, Bichon Frise, Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, Coton de Tulear, Kerry Blue Terrier, West Highland White Terrier, and Bedlington Terrier

Smaller low- and non-sheding breeds not among the single-coated variety include many different terriers. In addition to the single-coated West Highland Terrier (Westie) that may be a better choice for allergy sufferers are the Yorkshire, Border, Cairn, Norfolk, Silky, Welsh, Boston, Scottish, and Australian Terrier. Other small non-shedding breeds include the Shih Tzu, Maltese (a close relative of the Bichon Frise), short-haired Dachshund, Bichon Frise, Miniature Poodle, Italian Greyhound, Havanese, Miniature Schnauzer, and Powder Puff Chinese Crested.

You can also choose from a number of medium- to large-sized non-shedding breeds: Basenji, Poodles, Schnauzers, Portuguese Water Dog, Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, Coton de Tulear, Kerry Blue Terrier, and Bedlington Terrier.

Facts to Remember

If you want a non-shedding breed, you will probably want to shop with breeders. For humanitarian reasons, rescuing dogs from the shelter is a compassionate way to get a great furry companion. But shelters have little information about the purity of breeds they house. Even if it looks like a non-shedding dog, it may not be that genetically. If dog hair and dander is a significant problem for you, work with professional dog breeders.

Having discussed the breeds of non-shedding dogs available today, it’s important to keep in mind a few basic facts:

* All dogs shed dander, and dander is the most likely culprit when it comes to allergies.
* All dogs shed some dog hair, even the hairless varieties.
* All dogs, even non-shedding varieties, require time, effort, and loving care.
* The best way to reduce shedding, even in non-shedding breeds, is to stick to a regular grooming routine.
* Pure-bred non-shedding breeds may be genetically predisposed to specific, sometimes serious health problems.
* Be sure that the non-shedding breed you select has the temperament appropriate for your lifestyle and personality.
* Unless you’ve done careful homework about your breeder, you may not get what you think you’re getting.

How easy is it to train a Boston Terrier?

My husband and I have been thinking about getting a Boston Terrier, and we wanted to know how easy they are to train. I’d like to be able to teach him how to fetch, shake, sit, play Frisbee and roll over.

Boston Terriers are highly intelligent and should be quite easy to train if you do it right.

Here is a little info about them:
