Behaviour and Personality

Bosties can have feisty, confident personalities and do well with owners who are around frequently to play and give their attention. Though they are quick to please and like entertaining company they may show attitude towards other dogs if there is competition for attention. Training should be from an early age as they have a stubborn streak and require a fair amount of patience. Bosties should be taken out daily for walks, but are capable of amusing themselves in small indoor spaces.
