At Spot & Tango, creating the best dog food for Staffordshire Bull Terrier pups is one of our primary focuses. We’ve often heard from pet owners just how tough it can be to find a dog food brand that’s suited to a specific pet. And that’s the thing.
Dog food brands might claim to offer the best food for every dog, but that’s not entirely possible. In addition to some dogs being fussy eaters, some have allergies, others have high-protein needs, and those who are overweight need nutrient-dense food that’s low in calories. One type of dog food cannot cater to all these dietary requirements.
Perhaps your Staffordshire Bull Terrier has stopped eating their current food, and you are at a loss at what to do to optimize their health. Maybe they have a food allergy that has suddenly surfaced, or your vet has suggested a low-calorie diet to shift some of your dog’s extra weight.
It could just be that your Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a new member of the family, and you are looking for quality dog food that is right for your pet, giving them a great start to a new active life.
Regardless of the reasons for your search for new Staffordshire Bull Terrier food, we’re confident that at Spot and Tango, we have the best dog food advice and meal recommendations suited to your pet.
When faced with the avalanche of online information regarding dog foods and which one is best, it can be like looking for a needle in a haystack; making a decision can be virtually impossible. Each brand claims to be the best and has some but not all the nutritional health benefits your dog needs.
At Spot and Tango, we understand that each dog is unique and has specific health requirements and tastes. We all love our food, and dogs are no different; at Spot and Tango, tasty and nutritious meals are a top priority.
To help with your search for the ultimate Staffordshire Bull Terrier dog food, we have pieced together this helpful guide, providing you with all the information you need in one place. We are sure this will take the guesswork out of which food is best for your Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
Below, you will find three wet recipes and three dry recipes great for Staffy Bull Terriers of all ages.

Your stocky Staffy Bull Terrier will love this meals’ full, beefy taste.
Millet, a healthy gluten-free carbohydrate, compliments this meal to perfection. It’s not a grain, it’s actually a grass seed! Most commercial grain-free dog foods replace grain with filler ingredients and substitutes that are not healthy for your dog.
Staffordshire Bull Terriers are prone to food allergies which are made worse by grain-based foods. By choosing a grain-free meal plan including our Beef and Millet meal, you can be sure your Staffy is getting a tasty, wholesome, grain-free alternative.
Cranberries are the superfoods for humans and dogs. These little berries pack a healthy punch. Filled with antioxidant properties, they can aid in muscle restoration and reduce inflammation caused by activity or arthritis.
What’s neat is they are also known to promote a healthy urinary tract. This active breed can suffer from hip dysplasia and arthritis in later years, making this super ingredient a must-have.
The secret to the Beef and Millet’s delicious wholesomeness is in how we prepare the ingredients. First, each ingredient is cooked separately and at the perfect temperature. Then, just before packaging, all the ingredients are mixed, creating a delectable fusion of flavors.

Best Wet Dog Food for Staffordshire Bull Terriers with Allergies

A delicious source of protein for Staffordshire Bull Terriers with food and skin allergies
|Lamb, Brown Rice, Blueberries, Carrots, Spinach, Eggs, Peas, Parsley, Safflower Oil, Apple Cider Vinegar, Vegetable Stock, Vitamins and Minerals.|
Why we love it:

At Spot and Tango, we know how painful it is for a pet parent to watch their Staffy suffer from allergies. Seeing them struggle with dry, itchy skin, nasal discharge, watery eyes and in severe cases, ear infections and vomiting, can make every pet parent feel helpless and frustrated.
Still, did you know that eliminating specific food sources can provide your dog with some much-needed relief? Of course, this doesn’t mean their food should be uninteresting and tasteless; by choosing food developed for your Staffordshire Bull Terrier, your dog can safely enjoy sumptuous meals while avoiding nasty side effects.
Although the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a reasonably robust dog, it is prone to allergies, especially skin allergies. Allergies are the immune system’s response to external triggers such as pollen or food. Some dogs are more genetically prone to allergies than others and can be particularly sensitive to the external triggers that cause them.
Vet nutritionists developed the Spot & Tango Lamb and Brown Rice recipe as a hypoallergenic meal to support dogs that suffer from allergies. Best of all, the added spinach aids with cognitive function and promotes healthy skin and a glossy coat. This meal is the perfect solution for an allergy-prone Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
Try out our Lamb & Brown Rice wet food today, and if your Staffordshire Bull Terrier doesn’t relish it, we’ll give you your money back!
Best Wet Dog Food for Staffordshire Bull Terrier Seniors
Spot & Tango – Turkey & Red Quinoa
A perfectly combined food source to support the nutritional needs of older Staffordshire Bull Terriers
|Turkey, Red Quinoa, Spinach, Apple, Eggs, Peas, Parsley, Carrots, Safflower Oil, Apple Cider Vinegar, Vegetable Stock, Vitamins and Minerals.|
Why we love it:
- Contains Turkey, the best hypoallergenic poultry option for older dogs
- Contains Apple, which provides healthy antioxidants
- Includes red quinoa a healthy, gluten-free carbohydrate
- Includes safflower oil, rich in Omega-6
The strength of the Staffy tends to deteriorate with old age, increasing the importance of protein and calcium in the diet to keep muscles and bones strong and healthy. Likewise, weakening of the jaws and teeth in later years necessitates a softer, more palatable dog food. The energy level of the Staffy will also fade as they grow older, which may further increase the risk of excess weight.
Older Staffordshire Bull Terriers have additional nutritional requirements, the Turkey & Red Quinoa wet food ticks all the boxes in this department. While young Staffys are full of effervescent energy, they start to slow down as they get older. Older dogs can struggle with joint pain and arthritis, and their overall health in general needs cosseting to keep them in tip-top shape. Choosing the right meal plan for your Staffordshire Bull Terrier means your senior dog will enjoy meals that are formulated to provide the right level of proteins, carbohydrates, fats (Omega-6), and minerals necessary for older dogs.
With age, older dogs can be more sensitive to food allergies, so it’s a good idea to take this into consideration when picking a new dog food. Chicken can be a prime agitator for those with sensitive digestive systems. Turkey is a lean and healthy alternative to chicken. Keep in mind that if your dog suffers from an existing chicken allergy, it’s extremely rare for them to have allergies to other poultry-type meats.
Turkey and Red Quinoa is a superb meal created to support and maintain a healthy lifestyle for your senior dog.
Quinoa is a healthy carbohydrate and an additional source of protein, while apple offers excellent antioxidants. The star ingredient is safflower oil, rich in Omega-6 (healthy fats) and contains polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids, vital for healthy joints, a shiny coat, and a healthy heart.
Choose the Turkey & Red Quinoa wet food to feed your Staffordshire Bull Terrier today. If your dog doesn’t like it, we’ll give you your money back.

Best Dog Food for Staffordshire Bull Terriers on a High Protein Diet
Spot & Tango – Beef & Barley
Just the right amount of healthy protein for your Staffordshire Bull Terrier
|Beef, Barley, Beef Liver and Heart, Beets, Green Beans, Carrots, Cranberries, Green Beans, Rosemary, Kelp, Mix Tocopherols, Salt, Vitamins, and Minerals.|
Why we love it:
- Superior organ meat, high protein source
- Includes green beans, rich in vitamins and iron
- Superb savory aroma tempts fussy eaters
The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is considered an energetic dog and therefore benefits from a high-protein dog food due to that simple fact alone. A dog food rich in protein helps to build muscle and support the energy levels of an energetic Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Furthermore, an energetic dog like the Staffordshire Bull Terrier effectively uses the calories in high-protein dog food.
Dogs that don’t receive enough protein can experience muscle loss and see a noticeable drop in energy levels. Lastly, high-protein dog food that’s optimal for the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is low in carbohydrates, a non-essential component of a healthy diet for most dogs, but especially unnecessary for an energetic Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
Staffordshire Bull Terriers need a lot of exercise, especially young adult dogs. They love to burn off their seemingly boundless energy with long walks, jogging, and, like most dogs, they enjoy chasing a ball. That said, it’s vital they have a rich protein source to support their active lifestyles.
Vet nutritionists design our meals and intricately balance each ingredient, optimizing each one to ensure your dog’s overall wellbeing. Therefore, when it comes to quality, the protein used in our Beef & Barley recipe is of the highest standard. USDA – certified beef is used in this food to provide energy and prevent muscle deterioration.
Organ meat is a rich source of protein filled with vitamins and minerals that help maintain strong muscles and a healthy heart. Great news for active Staffordshire Bull Terriers!
The Beef and Barley recipe also contains barley as evidenced by the name! This healthy grain is great for lowering cholesterol and is an excellent source of fiber. Combined with lashings of meat and nutritious ingredients, this great-tasting kibble contains none of the unhealthy additives found in other brands.
This tasty treat smells as good as it tastes; just ask your Staffy Bull Terrier.
If your Staffordshire Bull Terrier needs a high-protein, nutrient-filled food source, try the Beef & Barley UnKibble. If your dog doesn’t devour it, we’ll give you a refund!
Best Dry Dog Food for Staffordshire Bull Terriers with Sensitive Stomachs
Spot & Tango – Chicken & Brown Rice
A mouthwatering meal perfectly suited to your Staffordshire Bull Terrier
|Chicken, Brown Rice, Apples, Chicken Liver and Gizzard, Carrots, Ginger Root, Sweet Potatoes, Sunflower Seeds, Mixed Tocopherols, Kale, Kelp, Salt, Vitamins, and Minerals.|
Why we love it:
- Ingredients that soothe and aid sensitivities
- High-quality, nutritious chicken

- Kelp promotes optimal metabolism
The Staffy is known today for being a gentle and affectionate companion that is also fiercely loyal. Their gentle nature is so prevalent that the Kennel Club has placed it on a shortlist of breeds suitable to being around small children – a rare honor.
However, this shows how far the general perception of the breed has come; when Staffys were considered no more than a breed bred for violent sport. The Staffy illustrates a more significant point about dogs in general.
“Man’s best friend” is typically gentle, but any dog can become vicious and aggressive with inadequate training. However, the breed’s violent origins continue to serve it well as they loyally protect their owners and family.
If your Staffordshire Bull Terrier suffers from a sensitive tummy, you are probably well aware of the vomiting, diarrhea, and flatulence caused when your dog eats the wrong foods. This just leaves your pet feeling unwell and takes the sparkle out of their day – and yours. So, choosing food that treats and considers their condition is probably high on your priority list. Usually, the answer is to put your pet on a bland diet, but this doesn’t have to mean tasteless meals.
Our Chicken & Brown Rice UnKibble is the perfect fusion of simplicity and flavor, which is sure to get your dog’s nose back into their food bowl without hesitation.
Potatoes and grains can cause discomfort in dogs with sensitive stomachs even though they are a great energy source, which is why the use of brown rice in our kibble is a superb alternative. This easy-to-digest carbohydrate is gentle on the stomach and a good source of energy.
Boiled chicken and plain rice are excellent for upset stomachs – add in a dash of ginger root for nausea and a pinch of kelp for improved metabolism and you have magical kibble perfect for Staffordshire Bull Terriers with sensitive stomachs.
We’d love your sensitive Staffy to try our Chicken & Brown Rice UnKibble. But if your dog doesn’t love every bite, let us know, and we’ll give you your money back.
Best Dry Dog Food for Overweight Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Spot & Tango – Duck & Salmon
The best meal for weight control with lean proteins and tapioca fiber
|Duck, Salmon, Apples, Carrots, Spinach, Flax, Sweet Potatoes, Parsley, Chia Seeds, Kelp, Salt, Tapioca, Mixed Tocopherols, Vitamins, and Minerals.|
Why we love it:
- Contains multiple sources of premium protein
- Includes tapioca and flax which are grain-free carbohydrates
- Apples provide an extra dose of fiber and a boost of healthy vitamins
- Contains parsley and provides UTI prevention and anti-inflammatory properties
During the 19th century, Staffordshire Bull Terrier dogs probably ate whatever vermin they could catch, such as rats, to survive. Since they were used as fighting dogs, they didn’t have loving owners because they wanted them to fight each other and did not care if they died.
Today, Staffordshire Bull Terriers are known to make playful companions, especially for kids. Staffordshire Bull Terriers must be trained to help control their temperament, but they make the perfect pet once they are trained. They also make great playmates as long as they know you are in charge. They require exercise daily to stay physically and mentally fit.
This breed no longer has to search out food as often as they had to in the past because now, they are known to be companion dogs, and their owners will feed them high-quality dog food to help keep them healthy and active. They may not need the same amount of food as they once did because they are not as active as they were when they were fighting dogs.
The age-old saying, “you are what you eat,” is true for the Staffordshire Bull Terrier and dogs globally. The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is known for its excessive appetite; it uses enormous energy, being the active and lively dog that it is.
Also, they are great connoisseurs of food and will happily overeat if allowed. Therefore, maintaining a proper diet is essential to prevent unnecessary weight gain and subsequent health issues.
Some health issues your Staffy could suffer if they become obese include joint pain, back pain, heart disease, and digestive disorders. Quite a bleak outlook for such a loyal and loving creature.
Unfortunately, there is no magic formula to calculate how often and when to feed your Staffy; this will depend mainly on size and activity levels. Our Spot and Tango Duck and Salmon UnKibble is the best food for Staffordshire Bull Terrier dogs that are overweight.
Our vet nutritionists have put a lot of thought and care into creating our Duck & Salmon UnKibble. This kibble does not contain empty carbohydrates that lead to unwanted weight gain, nor will you find any grain fillers and unnecessary additives hidden in the ingredients list. Your Staffy needs to eat a lean and balanced diet of protein, fruit and vegetables, and healthy fats; that’s why our kibble takes first place as it bursts with loads of these healthy ingredients.
Filled with lean proteins found in the duck and salmon and healthy carbohydrates sources such as tapioca and flax, meaning your dog receives all the nutrition they need and feels fuller for longer.
This food is the ultimate hunger-buster. The added benefits of parsley, which is a diuretic and helps to flush the system, is great for dogs that struggle with UTIs. It’s also packed with vitamin K, which helps to reduce inflammation.
Our Duck & Salmon Unkibble comes with a measuring scoop to allow exact measuring of food.
If you need your Staffordshire Bull Terrier to trim down to a healthy weight, we recommend you try our Duck & Salmon UnKibble. And if your pet decides it’s not as tasty as we said, we’ll give you a refund!
