Staffy Personality And
The Staffordshire Terrier is an intelligent dog , however they do have a stubborn
streak. They are commonly also boisterous, especially during the adolescent years.
As explained in the training section, early socialisation is an absolute must.
The Staffy's personality has an abundance of positive qualities. It is
stereotypically defined by its unwavering (and sometimes foolish) courage and
tenacity but also by its seemingly uncharacteristic yet amazing affection for
children. So much so that in some countries the staffy has earned the endearing
title "childrens nanny dog". This should not be interpreted literally. Children
should never ever be left unattended with any dog. Staffy's are loving and
compliant but can be sensitive. They cannot be mistreated. This is a breed of dog
that loves to please the Alpha member of their pack(usually their owner). Harsh
or unfair treatment will be unacceptable to this dog.
