Get to know the Staffordshire Bull Terrier
All you need to know about the breed
There’s never a dull moment with a Staffordshire Bull Terrier. He’s a people-person above all so will enjoy coming with you on a long walk, chilling out with you on the sofa or helping you run errands in town. The sociable temperament of a Staffordshire Bull Terrier means there’s no wiggle room for leaving them to entertain themselves.
The Staffordshire Bull Terrier handles apartment life just fine, so long as they’re getting enough time outdoors. This breed will thrive as part of an outdoorsy family and daily exercise - running, hiking, walking, chasing a ball - is essential to satisfy their high energy levels. They are whip smart with a slight tendency to be stubborn. This requires a confident owner who will accept them for the free-spirits that they are, while also showing patience, creativity, and consistency in bringing them to heel.
While the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a fan of people, they have a strong prey drive so do not tend to get along with other dogs and relish the opportunity to chase after small animals. The out-of-the-house solution is pretty simple - keep them on a leash when out for a walk.
You will be magnificently rewarded for the time and effort put into training a Staffordshire Bull Terrier - they’re loyal, friendly dogs who appreciate snuggling up with you, wherever you are. Yes, even this breed hits the snooze button from time to time.
