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.
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.
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.
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.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Rottweiler puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

How are Rottweilers for outdoor cold weather? Do Rottweilers do okay outside in the winter?

1 Comment

Anonymous

No dog should be left outside in cold weather. Even with a heated and insulated dog house, the dog should be allowed inside during winter. The Rottweiler has short fur, so no, they would not be okay to stay outside for long periods of time. Think of it like this. Dogs with very short fur/no fur such as the Mexican Hairless, or the American Pit Bull Terrier can be outside as long as a human wearing a t-shirt or long-sleeve shirt. Dogs with very medium/long (one or two coats) fur such as the Rough Collie, Golden Retriever, and German Shepherd can be outside as long as a human wearing a light/medium jacket/sweater. Dogs with very long/thick fur such as the Newfoundland and St. Bernard can be outside as long as a human wearing thick winter jacket. That will give you a better insight as to how long a Rottie or other breeds can stay outside in the cold.

The average life-span of the Rottweiler is 8 - 10 years. However, bad breeding, bad genetic's, not enough exercise and even being fed low-quality dog food can be factor's in a dog's life-span. I'm sorry for your loss.

What to feed a 8 week old Rottweiler puppy When to start feeding regular dog food

2 Comments

The breeder you got your puppy from should have given you at least a few days of puppy food. Depending on the quality of the puppy food they gave you, you can continue your puppy on that food or change him/her to a better quality puppy food. A grain-free, high quality puppy food is the best thing for your pup. Once your pup has reached maturity, he/she can be changed over from puppy food to adult food. On average for Rottie's, they can be changed over at about a year old.

Rottweilers should have a wavy coat, especially on its back. It's part of the breed.

Of course you should be worried. Take your dog to the vet A.S.A.P!

Would not likely be a desirable match. Very high drive, could have the potential to be "nippy." Would be overly protective of home and livestock. Training would be a must throughout it's life.

What's wrong with my Rottweiler's eye? My Rottweiler has this huge glare in his right eye and its where his pupil would be. It's most noticeable at night time (I think because of the reflection of light) but I'm also convinced that it is most noticeable when he is having one of his "wild" moods- with a sudden burst of energy and an overly playful, yet stubborn attitude. Now, it gets a little more peculiar. I am the only one who notices it! My girlfriend can't see it and one day I brought him to the vet for his last round of puppy shots, ask the Dr to take a look; and he can't see it either. He held a bright light to my dog's eye along with a magnifying glass and claimed he couldn't see anything. So when I got home I shined a flashlight up to the eye and i couldn't see anything either. I think it's when he's in a room with low light or light that isn't pointing directly at him. What could this be??? Cataracts?? Also, it's only in the right eye, not his left.

It's the reflective lens that is on a dog's eye. It's called "Eye Glare".
