Here’s a short checklist of some things that will help ensure your dog is a happy, healthy, and well behaved Boston!

1. Maintain Proper Nutrition

2. Exercise Your Dog!

Exercising your dog will not only help your dog get in better shape, but it will also help you achieve those New Year’s Resolutions you may have set for yourself.  For suggestions on exercises, check out this article: Exercise Your Dog: It’s Vital To Their Health!

3. Train Your Dog

Dogs love to learn new tricks! If your dog already has basic training down, why not try something a little more advanced? Train your Boston Terrier to ring a bell, dance with you, or even get the mail. You’ll enjoy spending this time with your dog, and these new tricks will also impress your company!

4. Make Sure Your Dog Is Up To Date On All His Shots

Vaccinations are crucial to preventive health care for your dog. Read more on the production and administration of vaccinations; choosing vaccines; and the vaccination schedule for dogs and puppies at PetEducation.com.

5. Keep Your Dog Current On Flea, Tick, and Heartworm Medications

Preventive care is so important when it comes to your dog’s health. I reviewed popular flea and tick medications here. Be sure to check it out, and then get your dog on preventive care ASAP if he/she isn’t on these medications already!

6. Keep Your Dog Well Groomed

Your dog is happiest when he/she is clean and well-groomed. A healthy skin and coat is extremely important to your dog’s quality of life! You should also be diligent about keeping his toenails clipped, and brushing his teeth! Dental care can help prevent an array of health problems in the long-term.

7. Help A Less Fortunate Dog

Be sure to check with local animal shelters or Boston Terrier rescue groups to see what you can do to help. You can make a donation, volunteer your time, help organize a fundraiser, or volunteer to be a foster parent.
