Overview
The Rottweiler has origins that are unknown, however it probably descended from the Italian Mastiff. During the Middle Ages, the Rottweiller was commonly used as a herd dog. The Rottweiler became nearly extinct in the 1800's, but made a wonderful comeback in the early twentieth century by breeders in Stuttgart. The Rottweiler today is used for a variety of things such as tracking, herding, watch dogging, police work, obedience trails, as well as guarding which he does exceptionally well in.
Character
The Rottweiler can be a very fun loving dog, however he is very powerful and can be serious at times. Early obedience training and socialization is a must. This breed can be very territorial and protective of their family and their environment. Rottweilers can be very intimidating, still retaining an undeserving reputation as a vicious and/or mean dog, however they do extremely well in a family environment.

Does your Rottweiler bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The temperament of the Rottweiler can vary. Some can be very affectionate and somewhat of a clown, while others can be bullies. It is critical that this breed is socialized at an early age. Rottweilers can do well with children if raised around them, but should be supervised around small children due to their sheer size and power. The Rottweiler can do well around other dogs, however can be somewhat combative and can show aggression if not socialized properly as this is a very protective breed of both their family and their territory.
Care
The Rottweiler has a short and glossy coat that is relatively easy to groom. An average shedding breed, brushing with a firm bristle brush regularly should remove any excess hair or dead hairs. Bathing too often will remove the natural oils from the coat and/or skin. Dry shampooing is used by many Rottweiler owners as well as breeders so they are not to remove the essential oils in this breeds coat.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Rottweiler has an outer coat that is short, straight, dense and of medium length. The coat should always be coarse to the touch. The undercoat should be present around the neck and thighs. Coat should never be wavy or curly. The Rottweiler has one of the most noticeable coats with the distinct black and bright rust coloring along their legs, underbelly and muzzle.
Training
Rottweilers are very eager to earn and will excel if given the opportunity. Obedience training is a must as this breed can become destructive without enough stimulation. A firm and dominant hand must be used when training this powerful breed. The Rottweiler is extremely intelligent and does well in many different sports and trials, but can also be stubborn. Obedience classes are recommended, but not always required. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Rottweiler puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Rottweiler should have at least a large sized yard. They aren't really active indoors, so they need plenty of exercise outdoors, off lead preferably. This breed loves long walks and should have at least two long walks per day totaling at least two hours of exercise per day. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

I have 2 Rottweilr pups, they are brothers. Will they become enemies when they get older?

If the puppies grow up together and get along now, they should be just fine as adults. However, if they are not neutered, then they could become aggressive towards each other later on in life. Get them neutered between 9 months and a year old. Discourage any aggressive behavior and make sure they go through basic obedience classes one on one and work with them together and separately so they know who to listen too.

What basic puppy shots do they come with?

A reputable and responsible breeder will have a puppy have their first set of shots at about 7 weeks of age. However, this is a question to ask your vet. All puppies need 3 sets of shots that protect them from illness' that can kill a puppy. Including but not limited to bordatella, parvo, worms, ect.

A basic puppy shot or the first set of shots includes Distemper, Measles, Parainfluenza (Given at 6 - 8 weeks), the second set of shots includes DHPP - Vaccines for Distemper, Adenovirus [hepatitis], Parainfluenza, and Parvovirus (Given at 10 - 12 weeks), at 12 - 24 weeks, the rabies shot is given and at 14 - 16 weeks the DHPP shot is given again.

I need to know the name of an insurance company that will provide home insurance to an owner of a Rottweiler?

Because the Rottie is the #3 breed of dog that is on the 'bite' or 'aggression' list, not many insurance companies will insure an owner that has one. However, since we do not know what province, state or even country you live in; we can not tell you the answer you are looking for. It is best to contact the companies in your area and ask one by one.

Should a Rottweiler as a pup have specks white in color on their feet and chest?

Most people would view this as unworthy in a purebred Rottweiler puppy. It is probably either not full purebred rottweiler or it is just a trait.

I was looking at purchasing a male puppy. I checked into the history of the parents. The male Sire is the great grandparent of the Dam. Is this a problem?

Some breeders use their sire's multiple times in the lines of their dogs because they want to keep a certain trait in their lines that they can not find in another dog. However, that can have a negative effect on the puppies healthy and well-being. If the puppies are looked after by a vet and have been checked for health problems and have none, that is a good thing. It is up to you to decide whether or not you agree with that type of breeding. It would be the same as if your great grandfather was also your father; so it becomes a personal choice after making sure the puppy is free from health problems.
