Taking care of an American Staffordshire Terrier
American Staffordshire Terriers have short-haired, shiny coats that come in a variety of colours including - red, fawn, black, white, and blue. Brushing your American Staffy once a week is usually enough to keep their coats healthy. Unfortunately, they are prone to bad breath, so brushing their teeth once a week can help stop tartar and food buildup.
American Staffies have moderate exercise needs, so aim for around 60 minutes per day. Playing, walking, and running are great ways to keep your Staffy stimulated.
Like most dogs, the American Staffordshire Terrier needs a well-balanced diet made up of protein, fats, and vitamins. Staffies are medium-sized with moderate energy levels, so you can incorporate lean meat and vegetables into their meals to keep them healthy. Scheduled feeding over free feeding is a way to ensure your American Staffy doesn’t overeat and gain unnecessary weight.
