The American Staffordshire Terrier's short coat and light shedding make it a very low-maintenance breed in terms of grooming. Weekly brushing with a soft-bristled brush and an occasional bath is usually all these dogs need. Keep in mind that all pups require regular dental care—including at-home teeth brushing and professional dental cleanings.
Take care to monitor how much your dog eats and reduce portions if they gain too much weight. And remember to count calories from treats. As a general rule, they should make up no more than 10% of a dog's caloric intake.
