<jats:p>Staphylococci form part of the normal flora of humans and a wide variety of animals. Some staphylococcal species also cause infections for human and household pets. The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of coagulase-positive staphylococci in humans and dogs within a common household. Coagulase-positive staphylococci could not be identified phenotypically in all cases. Molecular methods were used for the correct identification of pathogenic staphylococci. The prevalence of <jats:italic>Staphylococcus aureus</jats:italic> was identified in 26/72 (36.1%) dog owners and in 4/61 (6.6%) dogs. <jats:italic>Staphylococcus pseudintermedius</jats...
