The prim and proper gentlefolk of the dog world, Boston Terriers have a lot of quiet energy that can be worked out with the right toys. But what do you get a 20-pound pup with the manners of the Queen of England and the exercise requirements of Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson? Never fear, BARK has compiled the very best toys for keeping your Boston Terrier the happiest pup on the block.


Puzzle Toys

The perfect combination of work and play, puzzle toys allow our little pups to both earn a reward and have fun doing it.

Boston Terriers are super intelligent and love a good challenge. Puzzle style toys are a great option because they put your fur baby’s mind to good use and reward them at the end! A great starter puzzle is the Treat Maze. Once your BT gets the hang of the easier puzzles they can graduate to an intermediate puzzle like the Dog Hide n’ Slide Puzzle or, they may even rise to the challenge of the Dog Twister Puzzle.


Tennis Balls

As cliche as it sounds, tennis balls truly are the best friend of, well, man’s best friend.

While Boston Terriers are no Golden Retriever, you’d be amazed at what your terrier pup could do with you, a tennis ball and an hour in the backyard. That being said, BARK has changed the game and brought an upgrade to the tried and true tennis ball. Besides the Best Balls Ever, you can deck your pup out in back to school gear that will hold their toys for them, or even adorn your sweet pooch with a tennis bracelet, emphasis on tennis.


Multi-Part Toys

As the name suggests, toys with more than one piece are a big hit for Boston Terriers who need lots to focus on.

Featuring more than one piece and a variety of materials, multipart toys are the ultimate stimulant for an energetic dog. If you’ve got a party pup, a hot cocoa fanatic, or even if your pooch is a little squirrelly, BARk has multi-part toys aplenty to keep your pack howlin’.


If all else fails to release your Boston’s energy, chews are the best to keep them occupied. From bully sticks to Benebones, Bostons are known to go HAM on chews. Or try the Pawplexer, a chew within a chew!
