The cost of owning a dog is more than the expense of the food. Unfortunately, a lot of people make this mistaken assumption when buying a dog, which often leads to financial troubles along the road. he question we are about to answer is "Can you afford a Boston Terrier?"
First, consider the cost of a Boston Terrier puppy, which will be around £700 to £1000 depending if it's a well-bred pedigree puppy. Then you have to consider the type of pet insurance to get. For a basic cover, it's around £24 a month while a lifetime cover will cost you £55 a month.
You may think that paying for a pet insurance will steer you clear from vet bills. Wrong. Veterinary consultations such as regular health checks, initial vaccinations, boosters and neutering can quickly add up to £1,000 a year, outside the insurance coverage.
On top of this, you have to pay for dog supplies and equipment to make sure your Boston puppy is well settled in. These include a leash, collar, bed, bowl, toys and more. You will spend roughly £70 to £100 a month, excluding insurance and other medical treatments the insurance does not cover.
