Fresh Food for American Staffordshire Terriers

The American Staffordshire terrier, or AmStaff, is a confident, loving, goofy companion who has often been misunderstood and misused to tragic ends. But those who have spent time around these dogs know they are good-natured people-pleasers who love to be included in whatever their people are doing. While they’re playful people dogs, Staffies are also fast to alert, making them good watch dogs. Most importantly, they are extremely muscular and full of energy, and when not properly trained, they can use their strong jaws to chew anything and everything they find in their home. Staffies require a lot of exercise and confident, consistent, lifelong training from a loving family.

A healthy diet of fresh food for your Staffie is the best way to support their health and happiness—along with plenty of love, exercise, and consistent training.

Why fresh is best for your American Staffordshire Terriers

meat and veggie

Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your American Staffordshire Terriers’s health. Recipes from The Farmer’s Dog are made with fresh, human-grade ingredients, steamed to retain nutrients, and pre-portioned to help maintain weight.

Know what’s in the bowl

For American Staffordshire terriers with dry and itchy skin, sensitive stomachs, or other signs of food allergies and sensitivities, it’s important to know exactly what you’re feeding—something that can be impossible with kibble, which often contains ingredients not listed on the bag. Allergies and intolerances to food are all too common and many dog owners notice symptoms clear up when they switch to fresh food. 

Promote better digestion (and poops)

A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your Staffy's health. It supports optimal muscle growth and maintenance and a strong heart. Another hallmark of a digestible diet is what we call “high quality poops.” Research shows that a digestible, bioavailable diet affects the quality and quantity of your dog’s poop—making it less voluminous, and less stinky, than their poop on a kibble diet!

Maintain a healthy weight 

It’s critically important to avoid overfeeding any dog, big or small. Being even a little overweight can increase your American Staffordshire terrier's odds of developing a host of diseases like arthritis, diabetes, and even cancer. A fresh-food plan, tailored to your dog’s needs, and delivered in pre-portioned packs, makes weight maintenance easy.

Protect joints 

Staffies are prone to joint issues. Maintaining a lean body condition can help. And fresh food from The Farmer’s Dog contains Omega-3 fatty acids, proven to reduce inflammation and improve arthritis. Even if kibble contains these healthy fats, they can go rancid sitting on the shelf for long periods. Rancid fats don’t deliver the intended health benefits, and in fact can contribute to inflammation. Fresh food delivers these powerful nutrients intact to your Staffy.
