Okay, okay, let’s keep your Boston Terrier as busy as they’d like to be. Boston Terriers are known as the American gentleman (or gentlewoman), and they can look quite distinguished. But we know they live to play, and there’s nothing more fun than the combination of goofy and refined.
Almost every Boston we’ve met loves to chase balls, so we’re sure to cover the best of the balls out there, both the squeaky balls and the silent balls.
Also, you need a way to save your arm from massive exhaustion, so we recommend a ball thrower and balls with a lot of bounce.
Do we know how smart your Boston Terrier is? We do! Boston Terriers are known for their brains and their unworldly focus, so we recommend some puzzle toys to keep your dog engaged and active.
And of course, a couple of cuddly options for when they’re ready to snore away, asleep on their favorite plush toy.
1. Chuckit! Breathe Right Fetch Ball
This little piece of genius allows your pup with a smooshy face to enjoy play without blocking their primary airway. This one is good for keep-away and fetch, and great for outdoor play. Perfect for the dog park.Buy Now on Amazon
2. KONG SqueakAir Balls
We are huge fans of the SqueakAir balls. They retain their big bounce so your little terrier can tear after it as it rebounds off surfaces. These balls hold up to enthusiastic use. For small dogs with small mouths, the x-small size fits just right. Lots of dodging and pouncing here.Buy Now on Chewy

We’ll keep an eye on those robo gadgets out there. But so far, they don’t perform reliably enough to recommend. So for now, keep hitting the gym to keep your throwing arm in shape.Buy Now on Amazon

8. Skinny Peltz
For your Boston who can’t resist a squeak, Skinny Peltz by Zippypaws are super fun. They’re blissfully stuffing-free, include multiple squeakers, and hold up to a lot of play. We recommend keeping these plush toys indoors, however, because they’ll pick up dirt and debris like crazy if your pup sneaks them outside.Buy Now on Chewy
9. Westpaw’s Salsa Toy

Oh my, the chewing. It can be a reality for lovers of the Boston Terrier. KONG understands keeping an anxious chewer occupied without destroying every toy in sight.
