AKC American Staffordshire Terriers have short coats and with early exposure to grooming and brushing are easy to maintain.  Dirt and excess hair are easily removed to once weekly brushing, which will also keep your Am Staff’s coat shiny, but an American Staffordshire Terrier can be quite stubborn about grooming.  Despite having short hair, the Am Staff will shed often, and brushing will significantly help the process. American Staffordshire Terriers are prone to develop more bacteria in the mouths than the average canine and require teeth cleaning at least once a week if possible.  Never use teeth cleaning products designed for people and consult with your veterinarian or local grooming specialist of the best products and methods for cleaning your dog’s teeth at home.
