Boston Terrier breeding: things to consider

The Boston Terrier is a well loved and one of the few all-American dog breeds though he is, at the moment, not amongst the most popular dog breeds in America. Originally, he was derived from crossing of the English bulldog with the English Terrier and bred in Boston, which is how he got his name. The Boston Terrier was at one time well known for his aggressiveness though with careful breeding, this trait has been greatly eliminated from the breed.When engaged in Boston Terrier breeding there are certain things that need to be borne in mind including the appearance, size, personality and health problems that should in fact be in conformance to the breed standards pertaining to the Boston Terrier. The complete breeding standards for the Boston Terrier, as well as any other recognized breed, can be found on the American Kennel Club website.

There is more to just providing adequate Boston Terrier care and in fact good Boston Terrier breeding means that you absolutely must ensure that you have tested your dogs for genetic defects as well as for hip conditions so as to be sure that they do not pass on any hereditary problems to their offspring. Next, you should be sure that you are not going to enter into Boston Terrier breeding by doing things in a trial and error way.

Nevertheless, it is necessary to also ensure that both the parent Boston Terriers are compatible to one another in terms of size, temperament and also main traits because an ill-matched pair of parent Boston Terriers could result in offspring that have unstable temperaments. This is something that can easily be avoided by ensuring that only parents with the best chance of producing healthy and robust puppies are mated.

If you are not sure of what proper Boston Terrier breeding requires, it is better that you abstain from this activity because not only is proper breeding difficult, but it should also not be done in the form of trial and error.

There is thus no sure way of determining which type of Boston Terrier offspring will turn out to better.

However, it does mean that proper Boston Terrier care be given and because dogs are by nature very individualistic, it is hard to determine beforehand which type (pure or cross breed) will turn out to be the better. In fact, one can only compare them in general terms, though when engaged in Boston Terrier breeding, you should recognize that many genes are actually fixed that will in turn determine the outcome of your breeding practices.

Thus when you choose not to cross breed your Boston Terrier you will be able to know in advance how the puppies will look and behave.
