Many Boston Terriers love to play with and around the water, but BE CAREFUL!!! THEY ARE NOT GOOD SWIMMERS!!! Bostons are very muscular, making them particularly heavy for their size. They have little to no webbing between their toes to help propel them forward or, more importantly, upward while in water. Undercoats usually add to an animal's buoyancy; Bostons do not have undercoats. Their extremely short muzzle also makes it difficult for them to keep their nose above the water to breathe. In combination, these things make swimming difficult and even dangerous for a Boston Terrier. But watch out on land...this little speed demon is a fantastic runner, an expert jumper, and often a skilled climber!
