It is amazing the amount of facts to be taken in consideration when you purchase a new dog, if the SBT is on your short list, this book is a must buy, aside from the average information needed in make the decision, it is obvious the amount of time, dedication and love the author has or the breed, one of the most incredible dogs finally gets a great source of info for the beginner Staff Bull owner, alongside with great pictures, this books gives you everything you need to konw before and right after you get your Sttafordshire Bull Terrier

A really good book well written by somebody who obviously knows the breed first hand. Whatever you would like to know about the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is here in one book. Whether you would like to show your dog or just provide the best possible care for your best friend, all of the answers are here. VERY highly recommended for either a fancier of the breed or for anybody who wishes to learn more about it.

This book is a wonderful introduction to the Staffordshire Bull Terrier! It provides not only a confirmation information but also a history of the breed, how to care for and train it and what types of activities are enjoyed by staffords and their owners. Quality, often large, color photos really round out this book. If you are considering a stafford, this is the first book you should purchase.

First thing to note - this book IS NOT about the American Staffordshire Terrier breed (AmStaff, Staffie). It is about the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, which is the British version of the dog.

Now about the content ...

Good
* The pictures throughout the book are very pretty.
* The sections about the History and Characteristics are informative.

Not Impressed
* The sections about picking a puppy, training and healthcare are generic. You can find this information in any other book about general training for a dog.
* The section on Dental Care is weird - it's a big promo about Nylabones.

Overall, the book is only so-so on it's helpfulness. I suggest buying a book about puppy care and/or training that isn't necessarily breed specific. You can find the information about the history and characteristics on the internet.

Best wishes on your research about Staffordshire Bull Terriers!
