Introduction

A Staffy Bull Pit is a beautiful, loving dog with American Pit Bull Terrier and Staffordshire Bull Terrier parents. Both dogs exist as variations of each other, but the combination of both is a rarity. As a result, you may have to jump through a few hoops if you want to see the breed registered as both sides of the family. If you invite a Staffy Bull Pit into your home, you’re best to do so when you have older children. This breed does not know their strength, and you may find this can cause problems with young tots. What’s more, you will also need a long list of fun activities to provide them with as much physical and mental stimulation as possible. Here are a few options that might appeal.

Activity description

Staffy Bull Pits love to work hard and please their owners, so you can’t go wrong with a game of frisbee to help cater to these traits. All you need is a frisbee, a treat for if they need encouragement to bring the toy back, and a sunny day. It may also help if you have a spacious, fenced section too. This affordable and effortless activity will be a firm favorite in no time as it enables your pooch to burn off a lot of energy in a short space of time. What’s more, it requires not a lot of effort on your part! 

Step
1
Choose a frisbee
Think about your dog’s chompers. Staffy Bull Pits tend to have sharp teeth, which make it far too easy to break through the average frisbee. You’ll need to buy a new toy every time you want to play! However, there are now options available for tough chewers. You can buy rubber ones that last a long time and tend to fare better than plastic frisbees.
Step
2
Clear an area
Find somewhere to play. Your fully-fenced yard is an excellent option, but you may also like to head to a dog park if your furry friend socializes well with others. Make sure the area you pick is free of obstacles and has nothing they can injure themselves on when they leap in for the catch.
Step
3
Play
Playing frisbee with your Staffy Bull Pit is an excellent way in which to spend time together. You can teach your dog about bringing the frisbee back (with the help of the occasional treat), and work on recall too. Most importantly, your dog can get that coveted half an hour of exercise they need to remain happy and healthy.

Activity description

On a scorching hot day, your Staffy Bull Pit may struggle to regulate their temperature. Because they tend to be quite a stocky, large, and muscly dog, they may feel the heat more than others. If you feel for your poor pooch who’s panting away in the sun, then consider making them a treat that will work as both a game and relief from the weather. Pupsicles could be the answer! This affordable, straightforward activity only takes a quick trip to the grocery store and a bit of planning, and it can provide unparalleled relief for your pup. What’s more, it’s a delicious treat on a hot summer’s day that’s bound to put a spring in your dog’s step! 

Step
1
Create it
Add low-salt bone or chicken stock to water to create a diluted mixture. Add it to ice cube trays or popsicle molds before putting them in the freezer to set. For extra excitement for your dog, you may like to add pieces of chicken, vegetables, or similar. They will love having to work their way through the frozen stock to get to them!
Step
2
Add the stick
It’s not a real popsicle without a stick! However, you can’t use a regular wooden stick as your Staffy Bull Pit will turn it into splinters immediately. Instead, use a bully stick and insert it into the center of the popsicle mold halfway through the freezing process. Doing so ensures it sticks in the center to represent a human version of the icy treat.
Step
3
Eat
Set your Staffy Bull Pit up somewhere cool outside – on a covered deck or under a shady tree. Give them the treat and remain close by to supervise. Provide fresh drinking water nearby if your dog wants a break from their snack as well. The ice-cold treat will provide sweet relief on a scorching summer’s day.

Activity description

If your Staffy Bull Pit has too much energy, then there’s no better way to help them get rid of it than with a slightly challenging walk through the forest and bush. Such an outing is not only beneficial for them but you too. What’s more, you get to spend time together! On a sunny day, gather a pack with a waste bag and fresh water in it, then secure a leash and harness onto your Staffy Bull Pit. You can then find a bush walk and spend the next two hours traversing the variable terrain. It’s bound to be a fun-filled day out for you both! 

Step
1
Choose a track
The United States is home to many bushwalking tracks for people but finding one that allows dogs is not straightforward. Some bush areas are home to wildlife that your dog would find too hard to resist! As a result, you will need to spend a bit of time researching the best bush walks for dogs. Some favorable options could be Acadia National Park in Maine, Inspiration Trail in William B. Umstead State Park, and the Gatlinburg Trail in Tennessee. All of these walks require the use of a leash.
Step
2
Plan
Even though you may only plan on being away for a few hours at most, in the name of safety it’s crucial to have a plan. Let someone know where you’re going and when you’re going to be home, take a mobile phone with you, and have warm clothing and plenty of water too. Remember to bring along a few light snacks and a comfortable harness for your furry friend.
Step
3
Hit the road
With a plan in place and a bush walk calling your name, you and your Staffy Bull Pit can now head off on an adventure through fields and forest. The next two or so hours will feature varying terrain, stunning scenery, and the sweet smell of nature. Your dog’s senses are going to go wild!

Chew Toys

The Staffy Bull Pit loves to chew – and it doesn’t matter whether it’s their toy or your new pair of heels. If you want to avoid boredom chewing that can result in a lot of damage, always have plenty of tough chew toys on hand. Head to your local pet store and add a basket of them at home for your dog.  

Swimming

If your dog’s struggling a little bit with their joints or a weight issue, then consider swimming as a regular form of exercise. Swimming – be it at your local river or a hydrotherapy institute – is a beneficial form of exercise that takes all the pressure off your dog’s joints. Consider purchasing a pooch life jacket and giving it a go.  

Conclusion

Trying to find activities for a Staffy Bull Pit is not all that easy, especially as they tend to get on better with people rather than other dogs. Let your pooch live the good life by providing them with plenty of mental and physical stimulation every day. Every other dog on the street will be jealous!
