Hi and Welcome Everyone!
This is Sharda with Boston Terrier newsletter!
If you think that you can deal with minor problems raising a Boston Terrier pet when they come up, how about considering other and larger issues.
Here they are:
TIME AND SPACE: FIRST THINGS FIRST
Are you sure you and your family are ready to take in a pet?
Does your home need a pet?
Only if you are convinced that you are ready for one, should you proceed.
Next, your pet is going to need his own space—a room or basket space at least.
Do you have that space just for him where none of your kids will get in his way?
And lastly, your pet will need individual care and a lot of time from you. Do you have it to spare him?
A BACKYARD FOR YOUR BOSTON TERRIER PUPPIES
Do you have a fenced yard where your pet can run around and burn up all his pent-up energy?
By keeping him in a yard, you also keep him away from larger dogs that end up attacking smaller ones and dognappers.
If you don’t want to have a completely closed in yard, have a small gate from where your Boston Terrier can go out and eliminate before coming back to play.
A LIFETIME COMMITMENT
Your Boston Terrier has a life expectancy of about 10-14 years. This means that for the next 14 years, you will be committed full-time to taking care of him.
He will fall sick, and finally have a number of age-related diseases, each one proving expensive for you. Will you be able to match his demands?
If you’ve said, “Yes” to all the above-mentioned questions, well then, this is really your big moment. You ARE going to bring home a Boston Terrier!!
BENEFITS OF RAISING BOSTON TERRIER PUPPIES
Owning a Boston Terrier pet will certainly teach you to be sensitive and loving, and your growing children will learn these lessons too. They will also learn to be kind to animals.
But remember that not only do pets mean that you have one more mouth to feed, but that they need specialized attention.
Then again, your Boston Terrier puppy cannot be left unsupervised for long since he will turn restless and destructive.
If you have kids below four years of age, leaving them with your pup could prove dangerous for both of them.
Your kids might take the pup for one of his toys and pinch it or cuddle it really hard, almost killing the pet until he bites them.
So, neither of them can be left unsupervised. Can you afford that?
SETTING UP YOUR HOME FOR THE NEW ARRIVAL
Before setting out to bring home your pup, take a small carton with you in which to place your precious Boston Terrier puppy.
If you bring him home in cold weather, remember to line the carton with a thick folded newspaper, leaving air holes at the top.
Top this up with shredded newspaper. Carry the pup in this box, whether you drive him home or come home by train or subway.
After all, if he gets nervous or sick while travelling, it will still be easier to clean his box rather than your clothes.
I hope that you learned a lot from today’s Boston Terrier newsletter.
All the best and take care
