Is a Boston Terrier a Good Apartment Pet?


The Boston terrier’s nickname is “the American Gentleman,” and it’s not just for their black-and-white, tuxedo-like coats. They are also polite as a dog can be, and therefore ideal apartment pets.

They’re quiet, so they won’t annoy your neighbors, and they bond closely with their owners, showing undying affection and loyalty. They’re also conveniently small, and require only moderate amounts of exercise. Brisk city walks should be enough; no sprawling backyards necessary.

Boston Terriers are low maintenance. You can crate train or pad train them. They are easy to train. They don’t need much exercise. They love toys to entertain themselves when left alone.
