When Do Boston Terriers Calm Down?

on January 28, 2023

Do you have an energetic Boston Terrier pup who never seems to settle down? If so, you’re not alone! Many Boston Terrier owners have the same problem. The good news is that, with a few adjustments and some patience, it’s possible to get your pup to calm down.

When Do Boston Terriers Calm Down?

Boston Terriers are known for their playful personalities and high energy levels. While it can be fun for some, it can also be exhausting. Depending on the age of your Boston, there are certain steps you should take to help them calm down.

For puppies, it’s important to provide lots of mental and physical stimulation. The more exercise and mental stimulation a pup gets, the less energy they’ll have to expend in other ways. Make sure to take your pup out for walks, provide interactive toys, and set aside regular playtime.

If your pup is six months or older, you can also teach them basic commands. Teaching them commands such as “sit”, “come”, and “lie down” can help them to focus their energy and focus on what you’re asking of them.

Establishing a routine can also help your Boston to stay focused and calm. It’s important to have set meal times, walk times, and play times. This allows your pup to know when it’s time to settle down and when it’s time to play.

When your pup is in the midst of an energetic moment, offer them a reward-based distraction. A favorite toy or treat can redirect their attention and help them to focus on something else.

Finally, if your pup is displaying hyperactive behavior, it’s important to remember that it could be an indication of underlying anxiety or stress. If your pup consistently shows signs of anxiety or stress, make sure to talk to your vet about ways to help them feel more comfortable.

While some Boston Terriers may never quite outgrow their energetic sides, with patience, understanding, and the right steps, you can help your pup learn to calm down. Make sure to provide them with plenty of exercise, mental stimulation, and the right kind of discipline. With the right approach, you’ll have your pup settling down in no time!

My Boston is 10 mos old and we walk daily in park areas where we encounter other people.
She then becomes extremely excited and wants their attention. I can barely hang on to her and unable to distract her with a treat/ command. Any suggestions?

Our Chloe loved to run at top speed back and forth and in figure eight patterns. She did this a lot when younger, much less now that she’s nearly six but still gets very excited at times when someone she loves comes by.
