  1. I’d like to learn about Boston’s and their intense itching… my Lila is on flea prevention but something still just driving her skin crazy like they’re backing her butt around her butt area it’s so bad that she’ll whimper out and cry it as she’s trying to do scratch it I give her Benadryl I’ll give her an over-the-counter allergy medicine that was told about by longtime friend & breeder (not Boston’s but she still knows lots of stuff! Lol) I cant afford an allergy specific test for her to find out exactly what’s going on…. but I’ve noticed its fleas and apparently grass that affect her severely. What can I do?? I use an expensive shampoo formulated for allergy irritated itchy skin that I can use 2-3 times s day (so it says 🥴🥴) I use hydrocortisone spray on her… Please tell me there is something I can do that I can afford. I love her with all my heart and really want her to be having her absolute best life and I know this isnt it…. …
    Guess I’d like to see a video about the allergy tendencies, what to do about it, their separation anxiety, and what to do when they get sooo over the top happy and excited (like when I get home, or come back from getting the mail 15 feet from front door, when someone comes over, greeting anyone anywhere ever!) She just cant hide it!!! Its like she honestly cant help it…. she loses control over being able to calm down, or listen to what your are saying…. bless her heart she’s just so happy and excited and loves everyone so much she cant figure what to do with herself but wiggle and run and do whatever it takes to get you to feel how much she loves you… help
    Blessed with a Boston

    1. Hey Catherine,

      Sorry to hear about the itching issues. I’m not sure what that could be. I would always recommend health related questions be taken up with your vet. Or you can ask the Boston Terrier Society’s Facebook Group at large, someone might have the same issue as you. Bella, knock on wood, has not had that issue. If you ever want to talk to a vet via phone, text, or video check out the Boston Terrier Society’s vet tab. Thank you so much for these video ideas. I will look into bringing on some experts to help cover these topics.

  2. I would like to know how much are they supposed to sleep as a puppy. I got a new Boston Terrier and he is super sleepy. All he does is snuggle and go to sleep.

  3. Great site and thank you. I have a one year old Boston that I got and broke every rule in the book (although she is not from a pet store, thank goodness.) She is the love of my life and I want to get another one in a year or so. I look forward to following your site.

  4. hi how often do they fart? hehe . i heard they fart alot im about to get one, 6 weeks old .when i do but how do i prepare the house for the pup?

    1. I’m not sure about that. When we picked up Bella around the 8 week mark from her parents she had no issues leaving.

  5. Hi!
    Wondering if maybe you would be able to assist with some advice…

    We took our puppy (10 months) to the vet and he said that he has a Grade 3 luxiating patella – which is impossible as his knee cap only pops out of place and then instantly back into place 3 times a day.

    Could this be a injury from playing with the dogs at daycare a few weeks back, and
    Is it possible that this will heal itself or would surgery be necessary?

    1. Hey Jessica, wow sorry to hear that. I’m not sure with this question I would need to get some advice from a vet on this one. Luckily Bella has never had this issue. I would recommend talking to your vet to see what they say and please share once you do. sorry I couldn’t help.

      1. Thank you for your response – will get a second opinion. Don’t want to go through a invasive surgery if it isn’t necessary.
