Hi,

I am currently looking at getting a Staffordshire Bull Terrier pup, and was wondering whether I should get a bitch or a male. I also currently have a cat and was wondering if they would be "compatible" and if so any tips on how to keep a cat and a Staffy in the same house.

Any help is much appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Geoff

if you want a male or a bitch is all up to you. What are you after in the dog? God dog shoce by the way :)
I now some pepole that have cats and staffy. You are never garantied that it will work, but if they grow up together I think its a good chance. Good luck :)

Hi, thanks for the reply, I thought there might be temperemant or behavioural differences between the bitches and the males. I would not be after a show dog (but would probaly still get a pedigree, just for the health reasons etc.), the dog would just a companion and friend. Are there any special bonding methods that I could try between the cat and staffy or is it just simply a case of letting them grow up together and hoping for the best?

Many thanks!

well, many say that a male is sharper but I think that it´s the opposit, the female is sharper but the female is more calm and the male is more a clown. It´s not often a male works with other males but I now so many females that does not get together with anyone. With the cat /dog I think that is hoping for the best, but I don´t really know. just now that I now some pepole that have cats with staffs and that works.
A female is often easyer to learn things I can say with own expierinse. like I said, the males are like clowns(very charming) :)

Hi, thanks again.

Sorry if am being stupid, but when you say a male might not work with another male, are you reffering to another male dog, male owner, or other male animals?

Thanks for any help, I am new to dogs and just want to make sure I understand as much as possible before commiting myself to anything! :)

Thanks again, Normg002

I have a Pit mix and two cats. Its never been much of a problem. Brodie occasionally goes after the older male cat who wants NOTHING to do with him, but I just tell him no and he quits. The female cat however, is Brodie's playmate. She was only 6 months old when we got Brodie, so they was as interested in playing with him as he was with her. They have a love/hate relationship sometimes, but she knows how to get away from him, and he will soon lose interest. Also, its very easy to call him off of her as well, I just tell him to Leave it! He would rather follow me around the house anyway, so he does. Its all about how you train, and early training.

Hi, did you take Brodie to any training classes or did you just do it yourself, I have taken a few dog training books from the libary to see what is involvoed, doesnt look too complicated, I think you just have to be patient and be prepared to put in lots of time. Am I right in thinking this or am I barking up the wrong tree (excuse the pun!)?

Thanks again!
