    She is gorgeous! yes girls can be quite a handful! Lol Bella is definetly the little bitch in our house hold! AmStaffies are fantastic dogs, just remember your socialisation and keep up with the training the breeder has already started!

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    She is a beautiful girl and personality wise? We are amazed of what she is currently showing. Well we will start puppy school on March 7 2012 and Someone from our area who joined the forum invited me to a dog park near our place, so Socializing her will be fun and exciting.

    I was under the impression that female will be a lot better.
    Nah. That is why my friends who are behavioural trainers have boys, easier lol.

    They are not demons or anything like that but they are certainly more of a challenge then male dogs. I think it is a common misconception that males are harder.

    Biggest advice I can give you is SOCIALISE. Socialising doesn't always have to be actually meeting a dog, it can include just being in the vicinity of a dog and working with you, it also means socialising to anything and everything your dog could encounter in its life and making those experiences positive.
    Make her think, get her working, they love it, they are a working breed. Keep her mind active, try your hand at something like agility when she gets a bit older (you don't have to compete just do it for fun), they are naturally agile and love to climb and jump and run through tunnels. You will both have a ball.
    And get her desexed early, I would aim for around 5 months or as close to as possible.

    My last female dog was a handful - stubborn and b!tchy - but Banjo (boy's name, but she is a girl) is very compliant and eager to please.

    Since having her we always take her for walks where people and other dogs around, she gets excited but not too excited where she shows aggression. Socialization here we come :-) and then pup school in 2 weeks then dog park after school

    One of my socialising things i did was to take him into town and just sit on the sidewalk while the wife was shopping. All the noise, traffic, and everyone wh o walked past wanting to pat a cute little puppy. About a hour at a time and then a quick pop into the vets where the puppy preschool was to be held on the way home so he was ready for class aswell. It seemed to work a treat for my fella.

    Taking him into kindy when i picked up my daughter last year was a bit of a mistake to begin with as all of a sudden 100's of little hands wanted to maul him. Luckily the teacher was there and pulled them all up and reminded them of how to approach and pat dogs like they where taught a few weeks earlier by my vet who does days at Kindys to teach kids about dogs.

    How is he sleeping mate ?....or should i say how are you sleeping. The first few weeks are like having a new baby in the house..LOL.

    I like the girl dogs - more tummy to rub, and no problems with cocking legs on other people's stuff.

    Tho mine did sneak a smelly shoulder drop and roll on some stranger's beach towel the other day - oops.
