If you are considering getting a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, you'll want to check out the incredible book "The Complete Guide to Staffordshire Bull Terriers". It's written in an easy-to-understand way but still has the expert knowledge to help any new owner successfully raise their Staffordshire Bull Terrier from puppy to old-age. It's widely available, so pick up a copy if you see one, or click here to grab one on Amazon.
Though they have a tough exterior (and a reputation to match), the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is actually a quite sensitive and loving breed. They have a zest for life and absolutely love to be around their family. They love nothing more than to spend time with you – whether that be hanging out on the couch or going for a walk. If left alone for too long, though, they can suffer from separation anxiety. Their trustworthy nature and patience with children earned them the nickname, “the nanny dog” (though no dog should be alone with children). However, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier doesn’t always get along well with other dogs, so early socialization is necessary. This is an intelligent breed but their free-thinking spirit means they need early and consistent training. If you’re looking for a devoted, trustworthy, and good-humored dog, look no further than the Staffordshire Bull Terrier!
