What happens when a staffys head cracks?

Breeds such as Staffordshire Bull Terriers and American Staffordshire Terriers have a signature ''head split'' as they become adults at about six months to a year. This distinct formation of the skull means that the bone is fused strongly together, giving these breeds very hard heads! This serves no real purpose other than for more protection for the brain and is nothing to worry about as the vast majority of purebred Staffies have it. It does not hurt the dog and can be compared to the fusing of a child's skull as it grows older.

How much should a Staffordshire bull terrier be fed daily?

The amount of food the dog should be fed would depend on the brand of dog food being used. Usually all types of dog food would have it printed on the outside of the bag what a dog of a certain weight should be fed so the best thing would be to know what your dog's weight is and then make sure you feed your dog the amount required for a dog in that weight category for your specific type of dog food. It is always best to feed an adult dog twice a day instead of just once a day as it is easier on their digestion to get two smaller meals than just one big meal.

How dangerous are Staffordshire Bull Terriers?

They ain't dangerous.. It's the person that raises it that makes it dangerous, with the right owner, it's the perfect cuddle pig ;D

Staffordshire Bullterriers were bred for dog-fighting, therefore they would have the tendency to be aggressive to other dogs, but it all depends on how you raise them. Staffies are great with people and especially with kids. They actually have the nickname of 'nanny dogs' because they are so placid around children. This is most likely due to them having a very high pain tolerance therefore children cannot hurt them that easily. But even though Staffies are usually seen to not be good with other dogs, if you socialise them from a young age with other dogs and supervise them when they interact with other dogs they can get along perfectly with other dogs. Usually it is not the breed that is dangerous but the way they are raised.

Why does your dog's skin on his underbelly turn bright red?

Reasons For A Dog's Underbelly Skin To Be Bright Red:
  • when my dog gets runnin around and gets hot she gets like a heat rash kinda on her chest and it turns red...
  • My dog had the same thing and it was an allergy to and we changed the dog's shampoo and diet among some other changes and it cleared up.
  • Use a good brand of dog shampoo with oatmeal in it and wash your dog, giving the dog a good rub-down at the same time for approx. five to ten minutes then rinse well. If the rash continues then see your vet. Animals can be like humans and have sensitive skin or an allergy.
  • Many dogs have allergies, to all sorts of things. Allergies begin in the gut, (yes, all of them) so try Canine Enteric Formula, a supplement, you should be able to get it at a holistic pharmacy or online. I was amazed how much it helped my dog. I used it for about a year then didn't need it again and the allergies (bright pick skin, all over, and itching) did not come back.

How do you train your Staffordshire bull terrier?

I found a good site. I posted it in the related links box below.

Well I bought a load of treats and rewarded our pup for good things and sat him in his bed for a couple of minutes when he was bad... you can teach them tricks this way too... by the age of 4 months our pup could sit, lie down, roll, jump, give his paw, dance, speak, and gimme 5... its best to teach one thing at a time and keep doing it until he gets it first time you give the command.

Toilet training is hit or miss, we were lucky with our pup, we bought puppy pads, like those you get for children who wet the bed... when ever the pup urinated or sqautted we would lift him onto the pad... it took a bit of time and patience but we got there... when they start going on the pad themselves gradually move it towards the front door.. our dog now never goes in the house he always goes outside

What are the main phonological differences between American Standard English and the Queen's British English?

One of the key differences between RP (British English) and GA (American English) in terms of phonology are:

-In some cases, the stress pattern is different, resulting in the aluminum-aluminium division

- In GA, there is y-deletion in the vowel yuw (in some cases), as in the word "tube".

- Optimality Theory provides explanations for phonetic variations such as the two pronunciations of "hot"

- In terms of phonetics, RP tends to have higher, rounder vowels than GA.

How do you know when your staffordshire bull terrier is in season?

It is usually quite easy to tell if your Dog is in season. I have an entire female Staffordshire Bull Terrier who has now had three seasons so I can tell you what to look for. Firstly, there will be a clear discharge coming from the vulva and it will swell up. Within the next few days the clear discharge will become tinted with blood, gradually increasing in intensity. My Staffy licked herself alot more to keep herself clean and wasn't quite herself for the first few days. Her teats will probably become larger as well. Other than the bleeding (which is quite hard to miss) an obvious sign that she is in season is how other dogs (specifically males) act around her during walks. They will often show alot of interest in smelling her rear end and more than once I have had male dogs try and follow my Staffy home. It is important that you keep your Staffy on the lead during walks whilst she is in season as you don't want an accidental pregnancy. You can get special ''dog nappies'' and pads for females in season so that she doesn't get blood on your furniture (I have never used these but have heard that they work). You may also want to consider having her spayed if you do not want to breed from her as this greatly decreases the risk of her getting life-threatening illnesses such as mammary cancer and womb infections. Hope I helped!
