Of course, being able to afford a dog is about more than just his sticker price.

But before you dive into the costs associated with owning a Boston Terrier, one of the most important things you can do is learn about this breed’s temperament.

After all, do you really want to spend what will undoubtedly amount to thousands of dollars on a dog that isn’t the right dog for you?

Keep reading to learn more about the Boston Terrier to help you decide if you truly want to spend your hard-earned dollars on this breed.

Boston Terrier Temperament and Personality

The Boston Terrier is good with everyone from children to the elderly, so he makes a perfect addition to any home.

He’s also great with other pets, so long as you train him to be okay around them while he’s young.

His versatility alone may be enough to justify the Boston Terrier dog price for you.

However, you should never tease this dog. He becomes jealous and/or possessive very easily.

So, if you have a teaser in your family, you either need to consider a different breed or train the humans in your family first!

You should also be careful with him around other dogs. Some Boston Terriers can become aggressive around other dogs, especially those of the same gender.

You should be able to, and should, train him out of this while he’s still young. Else, the problem can become worse when he’s an adult, and then he’ll never grow out of it.

He is also sensitive to changes in mood, so he may run for cover if you get into an argument with another family member.

He’s also an intelligent dog, so training him is generally a breeze.
