THE ASHEVILLE BOSTON TERRIER MEETUP

If this is your first time to attend a meetup, WELCOME!! We have a wonderful time at meetups. The dogs LOVE it - but they are very energetic and boisterous. That's why we have come up with the following guidelines for everybody's SAFETY and FUN!!!

We all come here at our own risk - nobody can completely guarantee that a dog won't snap at another dog or person. Dogs should be up-to-date with immunizations and have a current license.

To make your dog feel more comfortable it helps if you do the following:

Don't just put your dog down with all the others. Anybody there will tell you which field to put your dog on.

Don't pressure your dog to interact with the others. Let him/her take enough time to be comfortable.

Be prepared for the group to test the "new kid on the block." The will "jockey around" for dominance. There's usually a lot of humping, and sniffing.

Keep your eyes on your BT at all times. Always know where he/she is and closely observe. Only you know your dog's mannerisms, like when he/she is scared, defensive, aggressive, overwhelmed, etc. If your furbaby seems overwhelmed or overly excited, take him/her to a quieter area, for a time out.

Dog treats: Food aggressiveness is common and even if your dog has never shown it at home; they might when in a big group. This is why we ask owners not to bring treats.

Lastly, ENJOY the antics of these fantastic dogs! Meetups are a wonderful thing to share with your Boston. It's like a Play Group for the dogs,and US!!
