Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Counted amongst the world’s most courageous and versatile dogs, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier proves to be an excellent companion for family and a flawless watchdog. He is spirited, talented, and able to overcome any task set before him. His loyalty knows no bounds and his master is the centre of his universe. This book provides the much-needed factual information about Staffordshire Bull Terriers and their ancestry, character and standard, as well as the proper selection, feeding, training, preventative health care and behaviour of the breed. The new owner will welcome advice about puppy-proofing the home, preparing for the pup’s arrival and preventing puppy problems. In addition to an extremely authoritative text, this book presents over 135 photographs in full colour, which prove to be as informative as they are attractive. Helpful hints and important information are highlighted to provide easy access to everything the reader needs to know about life with a Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Whether it’s housebreaking problems, allergies or fleas, this book is the way to prevention, providing the reader with the necessary guidance an owner needs from puppyhood through the senior years. Recommended by top breeders and trainers, this book is the responsible first choice of every new owner of a Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Topics discussed include: Origins of the Staffordshire Bull Terrier; The Staffordshire Bull Terrier Breed Standard; Owning a Staffordshire Bull Terrier; Everyday care of your Staffordshire Bull Terrier; Housebreaking and training your Staffordshire Bull Terrier; Health care of your Staffordshire Bull Terrier; When your Staffordshire Bull Terrier gets old; Showing your Staffordshire Bull Terrier; Understanding your dog's behaviour.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Mankind has enjoyed the faithfulness of the dog by his side for centuries. Few dogs desire to please their human masters as much as the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Dogs in general have accommodated man and his every whim for generations - anything to please the master. Today's Staffordshire Bull Terrier, in mind and body, echoes that sentiment with might and determination. Before the days of dog shows and the purebred mating of champions, humans recognised the merit in dogs that could specialise in performing a specific job or task. We bred dogs that could hunt, herd, haul, guard, run, track and perform countless other tasks geared towards making our human lives more comfortable, enjoyable and manageable. Each dog's anatomy reflected the tasks that men set before him.

This book goes through practically everything!, Fab for the first time owner as it has alot of information on the breed, but not so great for experienced staffy owner. I found it very interesting and informative, i would say it was good value for money.

Good basic guide to Staffie raising, training, etc. There were some aspects I would have liked more info on such as feeding (how much/often) and traits that are common to Staffies as I have heard there are many but not sure what is perfectly normal behaviour to them (snoring perhaps ? (even whilst awake)). Generally ok though and we do seem to have managed to house train ours based on some of the information given.

I brought this book because I'm going to be getting a Staffordshire Bull Terrier puppy soon and I read it from cover to cover in a day. I would definitely recommend it I can't wait to put all the advice to use. Everything you might want to know about the breed is here from puppy to senior and the history of the breed.

I got this to learn about a puppy we were given few weeks ago. It has helped us so much to learn about the breed and to how to look after her. As a new person to dog ownership I love this book . It doesn't gloss over Anything .

Really pleased with the book, the condition is like new for a used copy. The content is excellent and tells me everything about the bread, starting with origin. The index is 2 full pages of 3 columns, so there is a lot of information in this book. Even a special section in the back to record your dog's information.
I highly reccomend it for anyone who has a staff or is thinking about getting one.
