Tips On Boston Terrier Training

Sep 4, 2008
It is important to conduct proper and effective training so that your Boston Terrier will understand the rules and regulations of living with you. Many people blame the fact that Boston Terriers were originally raised for fighting for the few problems of the breed. Actually, the Boston Terrier has been bred down to be a companion pet.

Proper breeding is the key to producing good-natured Boston Terriers. There are some breeders who breed and sell Boston Terriers who do not know what their doing. The results are neurotic, hyperactive, aggressive and mindlessly yapping Boston Terriers.

By nature Boston Terriers can be a bit independent and headstrong. To correct these problems before they manifest your Boston Terrier will have to undergo training that is designed for dogs that are a little hard to train. The first hard training lessons you are going to encounter will be during housebreaking.

If you learn how to train your dog in spite of Boston Terrier problems you might encounter, it will greatly help your relationship in the long run. You and your Boston Terrier will have to learn how to harmonize with each other in order to live together. Start positively reinforcing your dog when your pet does something you like and punish him when he does something wrong.

Use positive reinforcement to let your Boston Terrier know when he is doing something right. This is a great way of telling your dog that you are pleased with what he is doing. In turn, your dog will be encouraged to repeat his actions. Be quick, have good timing and be generous when positively reinforcing your dog. If you want to teach your Boston Terrier some commands, you will first have to consider the commands you would like to teach your pet. Boston Terriers are very sensitive to the tone of your voice, so you will have to be careful when using tone to give a command.

A lot of Boston Terrier problems stem from the fact that they are bred and sold by people who really do not have any idea how to breed good tempered Boston Terriers. Breeding Boston Terriers is very meticulous because they have a very small gene pool, inbreeding can cause something as severe as mental abnormalities. Some Boston Terriers are neurotic, hyperactive, aggressive and yap mindlessly.

Rude behavior is not uncommon with Boston Terriers, so make your dog see and feel that you are unhappy with what he is doing. To see if your dog is paying attention, say his name in a low voice, if he will look at you it means he is giving you attention. Reward this action with a pat, a bit of food, or a toy.

Boston Terriers have the potential of becoming the perfect pet. You just have to give a push to become one. They are well mannered, gentle, highly intelligent and alert, so it will not be very difficult to train them. If you are having difficulties despite doing your best, go to a Boston Terrier behavioral therapist or consultant, or better yet go to a professional trainer.
