Pets and their quirks have been a part of Wendy Bedwell-Wilson’s life for as long as she can remember, but it was through her profession that she grew to truly appreciate them. After working in the publishing industry as a writer and editor for a variety of pet-themed trade, consumer, and online magazines for nearly 15 years, she ventured outside the cubicle and delved into writing professionally about four-legged friends from her home in Hawaii.
Her work has appeared in a range of pet publications, including Pet Product News, Veterinary Practice News, DogChannel.com, Cat Fancy, Koi World, FAMA, Aquarium Fish, Cats USA, Kittens USA, and the Popular Pets series. She completed one book — Yorkshire Terriers for the Animal Planet Pet Care Library series — before tackling Boston Terriers For Dummies. Her muses include a rescued Pointer-Hound mutt named Pete and two spoiled cats, Bubba and Benny. They’re no Boston Terriers, but they’re still little gentlemen.
Has a Boston Terrier stolen your heart? Whether you’re thinking about adding one of these “American Gentlemen” to your home or you already have one, this fun, friendly guide is the key to becoming a responsible and happy puppy parent!

Boston Terriers For Dummies gives you all the basics on raising and living with this intelligent, affectionate breed. You’ll learn where and how this dog originated, what it needs, and how to determine if a Boston Terrier is the right dog for you and your family. From feeding and grooming to basic training, you get all the tips any Boston owner needs to make their dog feel welcome, loved, and well-cared for. You’ll discover how to:

  • Understand the breed’s origin and history
  • Choose the right Boston Terrier for you
  • Puppy-proof your home and yard
  • Teach your Boston basic commands
  • Housetrain and socialize your puppy
  • Correct Boston behavior gone bad
  • Handle breed-specific health concerns
  • Enhance your dog’s quality of life
  • Travel with your Boston—or find a reputable sitter
  • Care for the senior dog

Complete with sections on nutrition, first aid, and exercise and play, Boston Terriers For Dummies is the only guide you need to raise a happy, healthy dog!
