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.

What does it mean when my Rottweiler puppy acts like he has fear in him when I have never done anything to him but love him?

1 Comment

Anonymous

Puppies are like children and can be fearful of things that don't make sense to us at that moment. Remember, puppies learn about the world every day and a situation that didn't scare them yesterday could easily scare them today. You must make every new situation positive with your puppy, with treats, toys, affection and play. Also note that puppies go through 2 fear stages, between 9 - 11 weeks old and 5 1/2 - 6 months old. During these key moments of development, things that startled a puppy or down-right scared them could imprint on them for the rest of their lives. So take things slow and never force your pup to go into any new situation. Let him/her go at his/her pace and treat/praise and give lots of lovings for being a brave pup.

Is it better to dock Rottweilers tails?

1 Comment

Anonymous

The docking of tails is controversial because of the fact that you are cutting off a large junk of a puppy's tail within 3 days of birth. Truth be told, unless you are planning on showing your dog or participating in any confirmation needed events, your Rottie can keep his/her natural tail and be perfectly fine. However, some people prefer the natural look, while others like the docked look. It all depends on your personal preference. But please remember to get your puppy from a reputable, responsible and knowledgeable breeder that get's his/her dogs tails docked by a licensed vet with antibiotics and pain killer given to the puppies.

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

2 Comments

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.

Yes all dogs can be outside. All dogs adapt to there surroundings. I have lived on a farm in kansas where you see all kinds of weather from 100 to -15 degrees out all my life and had long and short hair dogs and never had one even close to being so cold that they were going to die. You do need to make sure they have a dog box with straw/hay in it for comfort and warmth, just don't make the dog box to big just big enough for the dog/dogs that will sleep in it. And if it is cold outside sometime go out and put your hand in it while the dog is in the dog box and you will be able to feel the warmth.

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.

It means your Rottweiler is sick if he wont eat. Just leave him/her alone, if she barfs, I think you should take her to the vet or something. In the mean time just give him/her some water and leave it alone

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".

It looks like blood, but she shows no signs of discomfort, loss of appetite, pain, or vision loss. Pupils and corneas are normal. What do you think is wrong with my dog?

IT DEPENDS ON THE BREED AMERICAN OR GERMAN

There is only one Rottweiler and one breed standard. We have 100% German Pedigree rottweilers but because they were born in USA does that make them American Rottweilers? To answer your question it really depends on the parents, Genetics, how much milk the mom has, how many puppies were in the litter etc. For example we had two litter born exactly the same day 10 hours apart. Litter one at 8 weeks puppies were average 22 pounds litter two at 8 weeks average was around 14 pounds

There is no such breed as a Belgian Brown Rottweiler! Your friend is misleading you! To date they come in only Black and Tan and their markings are VERY distictive. "Designer" dogs are two different breeds put together and then sold as "rare". If it is a rottweiler you are looking for then buy from a reputable breeder someone who knows the breed and offers a health guarantee to back up their breeding . Every puppie is cute don't be fooled by those trying to get you to pay for their indiscriminate breeding!There are enough bad dogs out their get informed !

I agree with anonymous 3/8/2013 You will have to excercise caution when they are playing because you Rottie will grow large quickly and will not realize her strength or size and could hurt the smaller dog. Your Rottie will finish out at around 100 lbs your Chihuahua will probably be less than 10 . You should supervise them and teach your rottie to play "gently".

Depending on what kind of Rottweiler he is his face would not be round. German Rotties have round faces and American Rotties have a more narrow face!

Aggression towards our other male dog We agreed to dog sit for our son's dog after he and his wife had their first child a year ago. Once he came to our home, he has never left. He was almost 1 1/2 years old when we brought him home. Sadly, he did not get much training and was in a large kennel most of the time. We live on 38 acres, so here he has had lots of running room and has learned alot. Over the last couple of months he has become very aggressive towards our other male dog. We had him neutered 3 weeks ago to see if that would help. It seemed to but this past week he has again become aggressive towards our other male dog. He has not shown any aggressive behavior towards our two female dogs or any person, just my male dog. Is this common and can it be stopped? He is a great dog, but I can not have him hurt my dog or have my dog live in fear of him either. Please help!

play escalating between spayed rottie and pit mix My 6 month old spayed rottie, and my year old spayed pit/lab mix love to play...but sometimes it escalates and I break it up..However sometime early this morning they were doing this and when I woke up and went outside I found my rottie with a swollen neck,..I rushed her to the vet he checked her gave her some injections and antibiotics...he sees her again in 3 days. He said the pit mix (bella) had grabbed her at the neck and cause bad bruising and accumulation of fluid. Oh my gosh! What do I do..the pit mix was a rescue as a puppy, boh dogs are very sweet but I don't want anything like this to happen again. I also have a 3 yr old male rottie he doesn't get involved in their play to that point, however I have seen both rotties stalk the pit mix....playing. but there again I am worried what if it too escalates. any suggestions
