    Hi there, we live in Ontario Canada, and just love our Boglen. We loved her so dearly. Would love to have another. Are their any breeders out there?

  2. JJ says:

    I live on an acreage and fear a Boglen may track her way across the highway if she gets a chance. Does this breed tend to wander away from home?

      Hi JJ,
      Boglen Terriers are free-spirited dogs that are more prone to wander away from home. Make sure that you train your dog for obedience so that she can respond to your recall training.

    We had our Maggie for seven years. She came to us as a rescue dog. Hands down best dog we ever had. Very smart and loyal. Ruled the house with the other dogs we have, but the other dogs respected that. She loved tennis balls and could spend hours playing catch. We moved about eight months after getting her to property that was about four acres. She loved it. Running around with my son. We lost her this past Tuesday to congestive heart failure. Guess this is common. We will miss her terribly.

    My baby is about 7-8 years old. He’s totally loyal to me and protective of our house. He’s a howler big time! He is brindle and stubborn. I have a five year old who doesn’t get the concept of personal space and he doesn’t love that! He’s such a great dog and loves me deeply. I found a lump on his back recently so will be taking him to vet ASAP. But he’s been healthy up to this point and it’s premature to say what this lump is.

    We lost our Boglen Terrier last week to a short battle with cancer. We had her for 9 years and she was the best dog. We want another Boglen Terrier and are having a hard time finding a breeder anywhere or anyone that has one for adoption. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I have has my Riley for 9 months now. He will be 1 year old on September 26, 2017 His name is Riley.
    He was trained pretty quickly to go outside. I bought one of those mats you can turn upside down and there is a smooth rubber underneath just in case he had an emergency The pee every hour when they are new puppies. I read somewhere though that in general after 3 months your puppy can hold it for 3 hours and after 4 months 4 hours.
    My Riley has a lot and I mean a lot of energy. I am lucky enough to work from home and on average in a day we walk almost 4 hours and he still wants to play. They are pretty energetic so you will have to train him or her to not always want to seek out attention. I was also lucky with Riley because he is not a chewer of anything but his toys and raw hides. So I haven’t lost any shoes an don’t have any damaged furniture. I did find a cord that was thankfully not plugged in that was chewed in half. I am not sure when he did that though.
    You have to have lots of patience and don’t give in. They are stubborn, They have the tracking instinct in them so walking the first year will give you quite a workout lol. He is almost 1 years old and I would rate his walking at a 80 percent in good behavior. One other thing, I just had an incident about a month ago where he was playing and another dog bit the tip of his year off and his floppy ears made it difficult for it to heal. Dogs have many blood vessels in their ear so any shaking would make his healing scab fall off and it would bleed again. I paid almost $1000 in vet bills and a little over 1 month to finally have it healed. They have floppy ears so healing injuries is somewhat difficult and you have to keep the inside of the floppy ears cleaned because they are a breeding ground for bacteria.
    The reason why I am writing this post is because it’s so easy to see a picture of a cute puppy (and they are a very good looking dog), but if you don’t have the time to spend on training or for lots of long walk and most importantly lots of patience, then this breed of dog is not for you.
    I trained Riley from when he was a much smaller puppy that it was ok for him to be in his house even though I at home so if I go out now and can’t bring him, he doesn’t whine or bark. I also let him go to the Pet Smart Doggie camp after I had him neutered to socialize him with the other dogs and it’s not all that expensive and that’s when he really started improving with walk. He wasn’t so eager to pull me to a dog across the street or coming towards us.
    One last thing, I made the mistake of leaving him with a friend while I was away on vacation. My friend thought that human food treats was a great idea. NOT lol It took me a while to finally get him out of the kitchen when it was time for me to eat (because he developed a begging behaviour) and to eat his food again because she was putting human food in his kibble. If I give him something I know won’t hurt him ( because there are certain things they should not eat), I never give it from my plate or the table Riley had a sensitive stomach and during walks in a blink of an eye he would gobble something up off the grass outside an have dareah for days but after a few dats of white boiled rice and plain chicken shredded in it his stomach was back to normal and after 3 days he hated the rice so was back to eating his normal food again. oh yeah, they are a fast and strong breed don’t be fooled by their size lol.

    They are great with children but don’t like to be smothered and because they pull and are so fast and strong, you won’t want to have a small child or an elderly person hold on to the leash alone.

    With all this being said, Riley is the best thing that happened to me. I work from home and it is so easy to get caught up in work and not take any days off or being on the computer all the time. Not with my Riley lol. We have gone camping and on picnics with him and we walk a lot ever day. He loves running off his energy. He loves to cuddle and is very affectionate. I can’t imagine life without him. I am thankful my job allows me the time to spend time with him

    Hope this helps anyone looking to adopt a Boggle

      Thank you for every thing you said. I’m seriously thinking of getting one. My brother in law had one and I remember him as always in a good mood, friendly and a pleasure to be around. You are both lucky to have each other.

    I’ve had my boglen for 4 years. I adopted her from the pund. She is the sweetest thing, and my little Oscar (border terrier and pug) loves her too. The only difference here between gracie and these dogs is, she has a nub butt tail, like a Boston.

    I just got my first Boglen Terrier. He is 4 months old he is the BEST!!!Loveable cuddle bug wants to lick everyone he comes in contact with. He was easy to house break. We have a bird thst is not caged he doesnt bother the bird at all.

    I have a great female that’s will be two years old in March. I live in Greenville, SC. She’s 15 inches high at the shoulders. I want to breed her with a like male. Everyone that knows or See’s her falls in love with her. This is the best dog I’ve ever had. She is very smart and learns very quick.

    Where are you at?it just had to put mine down and want another.

  14. Amy says:

    I’ve had mine for over five years, and he’s the best companion I’ve ever had….great dogs all around. I didn’t know what he was when I got him, as I got him from a rescue group, but I found out that he is a Boglen Terrorist. I’d definitely get another one of these. Note: they are stubborn, but quite lovable. They are wonderful with most other dogs and kids, though they do tend to be one-person dogs. Training is a must.

    I want one

    Where can I get one.

      I found my Boglen Terrier through a Boston Terrier rescue. You won’t be disappointed with this breed. As a single woman that works long shifts, there were some behavioral issues which resolved when I moved back home where there was a yard and other people available when I was not home. A family with children is perfect for this breed.
