Dr Sam Kovac answers frequently asked questions about Staffordshire Bull Terriers
"The English Staffordshire Bull Terrier can be a powerful breed and overexcited. Like other breeds, they can be prone to aggression but nothing compared to the American Staffordshire Terrier, which is an aggressive breed."
"Staffordshire Bull Terriers can be a very good family dog. They can protect the home. They're fiercely loyal but they can get overexcited so require a lot of training. They're the sort of breed that don't know how big and strong they are. Like all other breeds, I wouldn't leave a Staffordshire Bull Terrier around young children, or infants unsupervised.
Having said that, they're a strong hardy breed that you can let jump into the back of your car, run around at the beach, hose them down to get rid of the sand. They're not a complaining sort of dog. They love to be part of the family going on expeditions."
"Staffordshire Bull Terriers are intelligent breeds. They're easy to train as they are fiercely loyal to their family and they like to please their family. They're eager to please. They do need a firm hand or firm upbringing and you need to be strict with them because they will try to bend the rules and outsmart you."
"They're mostly prone to orthopaedic problems like a floating kneecap also known as a medial patellar luxation or MPL and cruciate injuries. The blue coloured ones are very prone to skin problems – that's why I call them a dermatologist's dream. The same gene that is linked to the blue colour is also linked to atopic dermatitis also known as allergies in pets. So if you've got a blue Staffy expect to be going to the vet much more frequently up to once a month for skin problems."
Dr Sam Kovac, a Sydney-based general practice vet, believes in extending the lifespan of animals through ground-breaking treatments. He founded Southern Cross Vet, with clinics in St Peters, Bellevue Hill and Surry Hills.
