American Staffordshire Terrier. Part 2

The American Staffordshire Terrier is a very high energy and vivacious breed making training a little difficult. Being intelligent yet very willful and stubborn, this breed requires consistent and firm training from a dominant handler to prevent dominance issues that could arise. Firm correction is a must as this is a very powerful and willful breed. Obedience classes at an early age are definitely recommended for someone experienced with the American Staffordshire Terrier breed.

Special training is needed in training the American Staffordshire Terrier (Amstaff) because of their nature. This dog breed is quick to learn but needs an assertive regiment.

Don't give him free access to food and water until he completely housebroken. Offer food and water and when he is done, take him out, as they usually go within a few minutes of eating or drinking.  Offer water between feedings, but be sure to take him out afterwards.  Take him out often during the day. If you puppy usually has to go outside every 2 hours, set a timer for an hour and a half to assure the puppy has the best chance to make it outside without an accident.  A final trip outside should be the last thing you do before going to bed.  In the morning, getting your puppy outside should be your first thought, as he will really have to go!  Be sure his last feeding is early enough in the evening, so he has a chance to go out at least two or three times before final bedtime
