We got both of our staffies at a year old and let me tell you they are both wonderful. They are gentle and easy going but when its time to play they have a never ending endurance. They are amazing with my four children. Both of them came with little to no training but to our surprise training was a breeze, they are very eager to please. We use a method similiar to the clicker method just instead of clicking we say yes and give a treat. I caution you though it is crucial with this breed to provide them with exercise.

Staffys, I have to say, are probably the best dog I have ever owned. My staffy is absolutely the SWEETEST and most loving dog--even over the traditional family dogs, such as labs and such. Once he meets someone he warms up to them very well, especially if they let him lick them. He was very easy to train. For potty training we did the crate and treats for rewards. For not jumping on people over excitment all we have to do is tell him no and clap our hands (he is terrified of loud noises). He's the best dog!

Staffords are very intelligent and easy to train, and yes they love people and no matter the age they will Bond with people when shown love and attention. this breed lives to please their owners. obedience classes will help increase the bond and going for daily walks!

We just adopted a 1yr old stray staffordshire from the local shelter, he never wants to be away from us. He followed us everywhere from day one. He gets along well with our other 5yr old pitbull. These are great dogs! Consider a shelter animal, there are so many just waiting there!
