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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Annual cost of owning a Rottweiler puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Rottweilers true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

I have Rottweiler puppies for sale! See My Profile
PARSONS ROTTWEILERS We are a small breeder of amazing Rottweilers eager to find great loving homes for our puppies. Our Rottweilers are absolutely beautiful, investing thousands into our parent dogs to insure quality puppies. Both Sire and Dams have OFA certification and we offer a health guarantee. We have second generation females who came from a Beautiful female we still have, (retired) Rocky, and sired by Guardian, our deceased stud who was one of the most amazing males in the region. QUALITY HEALTH TEMPERMENT Quality animals is the pillar of a successful dog breading program, that’s the first reason we chose to retain some of the best female puppies over the last few years. WON MAXIMUM GUARDIAN, (Guard) as mentioned above was an amazing male, though he didn’t get his chance to show off in the show ring, he was truly one of the finest and best looking males I have ever seen, even some show judges after taking a look at him said he would win any show he entered. He was unfortunately lost to a tragic accident a few years ago; fortunately we chose to retain a few of his best female puppies from Rock Candie Von Parsons, (Rocky) last two litters. Rocky, a very beautiful and impressive female, now greats all the visitors to our small farm, she has always been an important member of our family. These females are now our breeding bitches, very healthy, vibrant and beautiful with great confirmation. Maximus Von Parsons, Hause Blumer (Max), is a breathtaking example for this noble breed; from champion stock "Max" is very big boned, has a large muscular body and big blocky head with short wide snout, aprox. 150 lbs.; he has terrific conformation with great mahogany markings. He is extremely loyal, loving and playful. The health of our animals is very important to us, that is one reason we have second generation, proven dogs which help us produce very consistently healthy robust puppies. We have also invested much time, effort and resources into our facilities to help ensure a healthy and secure environment for all our animals. Temperament is another reason we have chosen to retain the best of our puppies. As mentioned we are a small breeder and have no desire to ever move into the production breeder arena, we enjoy developing relationships with our puppy clients so if we breed puppies with challenging temperaments we will find ourselves with few friends. All our adults are very loving, playful alert, attentive, easy to train, they show themselves to be comfortable around people and other animals. They have room to run, play and explore and seem to enjoy our home. All our puppy clients are very pleased with their new family member and seem to enjoy training them rather than end up worn out from the ordeal. Please contact us for more information. God Bless, Randy & Kristi Parsons, Salem Or.

I noticed the Rottweilers in the pictures all have tails, is that the new AKC standard? My deceased male Rottweiler had a bobbed tail when I purchased him 20 years ago?

1 Comment


The AKC, UKC and CKC set standard for the Rottweiler breed if the dog is to be shown in confirmation shows is that the dog must have a docked tail. It is common practice now with breeders to only dock the tails of puppies that will be used as breeding dogs/show dogs. Pet dogs normally have their tails left natural not only so that the puppy does not have to go through the unnecessary docking; but to distinguish the dogs from show-potential stock to pet stock.

Are Rottweiler's good with kids?

1 Comment


The Rottweiler breed is a powerful, loyal companion dog that with the right breeding, socialization and training can be good with children. However, all three of those said before must be done to ensure a well-balanced dog. The Rottie is a large breed of dog that has a moderate to moderate-high prey drive and children are quick, loud and squeaky. Not saying the dog would intentionally hurt a child, but the dog could easily knock a child over without a second thought. A well balanced and well bred Rottie will have a calm temperament and lower prey drive. They will take socializing with children at a young age (as a puppy) easily and adapt to the changes children make over the years as they grow with stride, A well balanced and well bred Rottie will also be accepting of Positive Reinforcement training to learn the basic commands and how to respect children/people of all ages without any negative reactions such as dominance or challenging. All in all, if you acquire a Rottweiler from a responsible, reputable, and knowledgeable breeder that has healthy, well balanced stock and socialize your puppy with many different ages/types of children and how they act. Coupled with firm, but Positive Reinforcement training techniques then a Rottie will be a wonderful companion and loyal protector of the family, including the children.

Anonymous asked:
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.


It's not recommended to get two puppies, even if they aren't from the same litter. Research littermates syndrome to see if your puppies are showing any concerning symptoms.

Anonymous asked:
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.

Anonymous asked:
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.


I have had excellent experience with Farmers Insurance.


Sometimes some Insurance companies will allow you to own them if you take your dog and get CGC title on them.


Like any animal its how you raise them. My rottie we had her from the time she was 8 weeks old she recently had to be put down as she had cancer which cost her her mobility at the age of 11 years old. She never bit anyone in fact my toddler granddaughters would crawl all over her and she would lick their faces.
