Being confident, brave and alert by nature, they are not frightened or worried about taking any risk when it comes to protecting their family. As they do not like to be left alone, constant attention is to be bestowed upon the Boglen Terrier to keep them happy and active. This trait makes these designer dogs highly suitable for big families where plenty of human interaction is available.
The boggle is said to be highly food-motivated. Chewing and licking are some of their common traits. Their gentle and tolerant behavior is similar to that of the Beagle. Known to be very loving, friendly and affectionate towards children, they also get along well with other pets of the family. They get bored easily because of their active, energetic and enthusiastic nature.
The Beagle suffers from heart ailments, spinal disorders, dwarfism, and epilepsy, whereas the Boston Terrier is prone to ulcers, cataract, deafness, and allergies.
Care should be taken in training this strong-willed breed to help them shape their personality in a pleasing way. They may get stubborn sometimes thus requiring a firm but patient trainer who will have his hold over them rather than getting dominated by these dogs. Training them in an assertive and controlled way will prevent them from developing the small dog syndrome. Giving the puppies adequate socialization training will help them get along well with everyone. Leash training is required as they have a chasing and tracking ability, giving their trainers a difficult time when taken out.
This Beagle-Boston Terrier mix requires, about one and a half to two and a half cups of dry dog food every day to keep them healthy.
