Comments -         



  • Staffies are highly intelligent, but they are also free thinkers who like to do things their own way. They need firm, patient, consistent training.
  • Because they may be aggressive toward unknown dogs, Staffies should not be walked off leash unless it is safe to do so.
  • Staffordshire Bull Terriers are energetic dogs who need a vigorous walk or play session daily.
  • SBTs enjoy their comforts and will readily join you on the sofa or bed if allowed.
  • Staffords shed little, although they may have a heavy shed once a year. They require weekly brushing to remove dead hair and keep their coat shiny.
  • The Stafford needs early socialization, especially if you want him to be friendly toward other animals.
  • The SBT is not recommended for a timid or first-time owner. This breed needs a confident trainer who is consistent and firm but also loving.
  • Staffords love to chew, especially during puppyhood. Provide them with tough, durable toys.
  • Staffords usually love children, but despite their nickname of "nanny dog," they should not double as a baby-sitter. Always supervise interactions between children and dogs.
  • If properly socialized and raised with them, Staffordshire Bull Terriers can do well with other dogs and animals. It is important to understand that some Staffordshire Bull Terriers will never do well with other animals and may need to live in single animal homes.
  • Staffordshire Bull Terriers have a strong prey drive which will send them after small animals around your neighborhood including cats.

They fell in...…read more
