Boston Terrier KissesAre you thinking about breeding your Boston Terrier?

This is a huge responsibility and you need to make sure you do a lot of research before rushing into anything. It could end up being disastrous if you’re not careful so make sure you consider every detail.

Some important things to consider when choosing a mate for your little lady:

The Breed Standard

If you’re trying to breed show class puppies, you need to choose a really good stud for your dog!

Make sure you study the breed standard for Boston Terriers, if you’re not familiar with it. That way when you’re searching for a mate for your dog, you’ll know what to look for!

For example, you should look at head size, stance, and proportions. Do they look like a good example of the breed?

You should take all of these factors into consideration if you’re trying to breed show dogs. People pay good money for a show puppy, but they expect perfection in return.

Potential Health Problems

The most important thing you should look for in a mate is HEALTH!

Puppies are brought into the world all too often with an array of health problems. So make sure to check the mate’s health history before breeding your dog.

For example with a Boston Terrier you should look out for brachycephalic syndrome, patellar luxation, hermivertebrae, sensorineual deafness, and eye problems, as these are all common health problems amongst Boston Terriers.

You should have any potential mates checked by a vet to make sure your potential puppies have the best chance at life!

Remember, do your research! Breeding your Boston Terrier should be done in a well-researched and controlled environment!
