One of the challenges that comes with dog ownership is traveling with your puppy companions. There are problems when traveling with any type, but the Boston Terriers bring their own special needs that need to be addressed when traveling on long road trips. There are many methods, tools, techniques, and techniques used to control your travels with your Boston Terrier. Some work better than others. How is it possible to achieve the best results?
Understanding and preparation is certainly the key. In the same way, the real key to achieving success by traveling with your Boston Terrier is a lot more knowledge of what works and being properly prepared before you go.
Here are 5 tips to make your Boston Terrier easier to train:
1. Take your Boston for a long walk before getting in the car. Why is this important? Boston Terriers are energetic in nature and can lead and create when they need to stay too long. This is compounded if they haven't had the option of proper "restroom" breaks (which you know means a few, if you already own Boston). Make sure your friend has the time to run around and do his business right before a long drive .. And exactly what happens when you follow these tips? You can rest assured that your Boston will be comfortable sleeping for a long part of the trip and will be comfortable until the first scheduled rest stop.
2. Bring a dish full of ice cream instead of a bowl of water. Water tends to pour into a car ride, but it is imperative that your Boston has access to fresh cold drinking water at all times, especially if you go in the summer. The ice cream actually helps because the Boston Terriers are brachycephalic (meaning they have a short muzzle) and are very susceptible to overheating. The cold water will help your pet control its body temperature on a hot day.
3. Put sunglasses in the car windows. Once again, the main reason behind Boston's Terrier intolerance to heat. While you may notice that your friend relieves the sunlight on the living room floor, it is very important that they be somewhere shady to lay. It's also a good idea because Boston has very fine coats and is in danger severe sunburn if exposed to direct sun for too long.
4. Have a comfortable parking space. And why is this a good idea? Car seats are designed for the convenience of people but not the comfort of our friends' dogs. With seat belts sticking out and sewing in strange places, they can be very uncomfortable for your dog on a long trip. Any other reason? The seats (and seat belts) can get very hot – hot enough to burn your Boston, depending on the colors of your car. Having a special bed for your dog eliminates this risk.
5. Take breaks every two to three hours. And this will be important because of why? Just like humans, dogs need to take a rest every time. In a long-haul drive, your Boston can become as uncomfortable and restless as you can. What other important reasons are there? It is not healthy or comfortable for your dog to "hold him" for a long time. If you notice that your dog is drinking a lot of the ice water you gave up, you may need to stop more often. A good indicator? If you need to go, they probably do too.
One final word of advice: Never leave the Boston Terrier in your car on a hot or sunny day. Even on a cold day, the temperature inside a car can rise by 30 degrees within 15 minutes, which can have fatal consequences for your pet's travel.
When you follow these 5 tips carefully, you should expect to have a pleasant, comfortable adventure when traveling on the roads with your Boston Terrier.
