* Take full responsibility for this dog and all its needs for the next 12 - 15 years? This is NOT a task that can be left to children!

* Invest the considerable time, money and patience it takes to train the dog to be a good companion? (This does not happen by itself!!!!)

* Always keep the dog safe; make sure you have secure fences, no running loose near roads or livestock. 

* Make sure the dog gets enough attention and exercise? :-
Staffys need to spend time with the family and need and love to go for a jog or a long walk.  Staffys require an hour of exercise per day, ideally 2 x 30 minutes bush walking, frisby, running etc. Be aware that this breed needs to be trained from an early age not to jump up on people in excitement-Seems to be a common trait. You need to show you are the alpha dog- more information about this comes in the puppy pack.

* Spend the money it takes to provide proper veterinary care including but certainly not limited to: vaccines, worming, neutering if required and annual check ups?

* Become educated about the proper care of the breed, correct training methods? (There are many good books available, invest the time to read a few.)

* Keep the breeder informed and up to date on the dogs accomplishments and problems? (and photos :) )

* Take your questions to the breeder or other appropriate professional before they become problems that are out of hand?

* Have the patience to accept (and enjoy) the trials of puppy hood, which can last for two to three years, and each stage afterwards?

* Continue to accept responsibility for the dog despite inevitable life changes such as new babies, kids going off to school, moving or returning to work?

* Resist impulse buying, instead have the patience to make a responsible choice?
