Police should have the power to shoot on sight any dog deemed to be dangerous or a threat, then prosecute and charge the owners, that would soon sort out the dodgy ones.

I also think its time we had licences enforced again to keep anything at all, any animal, it was easy to revoke licences for troublemakers and that made it easy to identify the ones breaking the law. Then make the licences means tested, so only those capable of properly caring for an animal, vets, immunisation and so on, even feeding, care, conditions, size of property and where the animal is kept.

Anyone dressing up their pet should be fined on sight lol.

Funnily enough I do, I've got two very well behaved dogs that have Been socialised from birth with dogs and children.

Let's be fair Staffies don't mix well with other dogs, fact or they wouldn't always be in the papers and there wouldn't be this stigma with them or the type of people that own them.

Simple fact is certain campsites don't want that type of dog or owner and if that doesn't work for you then go else where.

You seem to have a stereotype of the staffordshire bull terrier & the kind of person who would own one,

Not so but I think most people me included are very weary of staffies and similar breeds. When you dress a dog of that nature in heavy leather collars or harnesses with studs let's be fair it's to show the dog is a protector and you should be weary of it.

For that reason certain campsites don't want that type of dog on their premises.

There are plenty of campsites out there so no real harm.

Kennel club recommend staffies as one of three breeds particularly suited to families with kids due to their loyal and affectionate nature.

My sister, husband and 4 kids have a staff. They dont dress it up in studs or anything. Loveliest dog in the world and great with the kids. Soft as putty

We have a choc labrador, also a lovely dog, but put them both in the same room and the Staff goes for our dog and all hell breaks loose.

Exactly my point. Great loyal dogs to you and your family but put them with other dogs and they can't be trusted. That's why some campsites don't accept them.

Only to you and your family thou not to other dogs. My brother in law used to live in a house share and his house mate had a staffie he had a jack. They left them at home together and when they returned the staffie had killed the jack, still had its mouth around its throat when they returned.

At the end of the day this discussion is about why certain campsites don't take them and why people have a stereotype about this breed.

The answers simple people don't trust them and when there are other dogs and kids about who can blame them.

Any dog can be made to be aggressive if you so wish. People who hold a stereo typical image of staffies are uneducated about such matters and probably shouldn't comment about the subject until they carry out some research.

Did the staffy at your brother in laws house share correctly receive socialisation training?
