Ownership of an Am Staff means that you now must become a breed ambassador charged with dispelling the public misconception that this breed is deserving of discriminatory regulations and restrictions. How these stereotypes affect you varies by location, but they are prevalent at the local level in almost every state. When traveling or relocating, look into local and state laws first to be sure you are not jeopardizing the safety of your dog. You may also encounter insurance discrimination. With this said, it is a good idea to make sure your homeowners or renters insurance provider does not discriminate based on breed. With planning and socialization, you can show the world your dog—a well-behaved breed ambassador.
If you would like to become involved beyond the personal level, the STCA has a Public Relations Committee and a Legislative Committee that are always looking for help and fundraising ideas.
