The dog attack, which took place in Stonall, led to a local primary school being put into lockdown.
Some children were unable to leave the school as police rushed to the scene.
A spokesperson for Staffordshire Constabulary said: "A number of people helped to try and get the dogs off the man and contained one of the dogs outside.
"The other was contained within the owner’s flat.
"We prevented a number of school children leaving local primary school, St Peter’s Primary Academy, for safety reasons. The children have since been allowed to go home.
"A 30-year-old man, from the Lichfield area, has been arrested on suspicion of having dogs dangerously out of control. An investigation is ongoing including the determination of the dogs’ breed."
