Staffies can suffer from anxiety, which can be an underlying cause of behavioural problems such as destructive chewing. Daily exercise and behavioural training strategies, alongside calming supplements and pheremones can help.
Staffies never stop chewing, from puppy right through until old age. Offer a variety of tough, durable toys and treats to prevent your staffy from chewing up your furniture or shoes!
They may not be the largest breed, but Staffies are still seriously strong! If you have trouble with your staffy pulling on the lead, try a front attaching harness or headcollar to gain some control.
Due to their tendency to have skin and digestive sensitivities, premium quality, easy to digest foods enriched with omega fatty acids are recommended for Staffies.
If your Staffy is chewing things up around the house or digging holes in the yard, it could be a sign of boredom. Keep them out of mischief by occupying their minds with puzzle feeders and interactive toys.
Staffy puppies' peak socialisation window is around 8 weeks to 16 weeks of age. Exposing your (fully vaccinated) pup to a range of animals, people and places in a positive way will help them to be well adjusted adults.
