You’re looking for a Bosun Dog. Bosun Dogs are bred for one purpose only:
To be the perfect four-legged addition to your family.
Looking for the perfect
family dog?

Welcome to the Bosun Dog Project

The qualities of a Bosun set this breed apart from all others:
A robust dog without common hip, knee, joint, and eye issues so you can enjoy a healthy four-legged family member.
Not too big and not too small, the Bosun weighs in between 35 and 55 pounds—just right to play safely with the kids, and easy to take along on family outings.
Bred for calm focus and intelligence, we also jump start your success with early training before sending your Bosun home to join the family.
Though your Bosun will have plenty of spunk for games and walks when time allows, she won’t need daily marathons to keep her calm and well-behaved in your home.
The Bosun is a family-friendly dog with a calm, confident, lovely demeanor neighbors and friends will marvel at.

In short, the Bosun’s qualities make the breed a perfect match for busy families.

The Bosun Dog marks a return to the family dog of yesteryear.

Our breeding dogs are:
  • Carefully chosen for robust health and solid temperament
  • Raised in loving homes to promote emotional stability
  • Socialized for appropriate behavior around children and calm grace under pressure
  • Jump start on crate and house training for easy introduction into your home

Purposefully bred family dogs for discerning dog lovers in Arlington, VA and beyond.

…all the virtues of Man without his Vices… is but a just tribute to the Memory of Boatswain [Bosun], a Dog
