Loyal – Rottweilers are a loyal and protective breed, sometimes to a fault. Many people view the breed?s loyalty as a negative trait due to some of the aggression that Rottweilers will display.

It is important to understand that if a Rottweiler shows aggression, it is often a result of either improper training or not being raised properly. If Rottweilers are trained and disciplined as a puppy, and if they spend time playing with children and other people when they are puppies, then aggression will be drastically reduced when they are older.

Strong – They are a powerful breed, and not only because they are a large dog. Their strong, broad chests are also indicative of the power that the breed represents.

Hard worker – Rottweilers were bred and raised to herd cattle, and this instinct is still in their DNA. They are known to ?herd? people and other animals by gently bumping or nudging in the direction the dog wants to go.

Companionship
– Rottweilers thrive on interaction with other humans, and especially their owners and family. It is important to spend quality time with your Rottweiler since much of their aggression starts with pent-up energy coming from neglect. They are also known to display a silly side when playing and interacting with their family.

Intelligent
– They are an extremely intelligent breed, especially when it comes to being taught tasks. In fact, they were one of the original military and police dogs in the 1800s, and are also still used as search-and-rescue dogs.

When the Roman Empire was conquering Europe, they would send cattle and herds with the army as a source of food. Because they went on long marches in various types of weather, the army wanted strong, tough dogs that could handle the journey and work.

The Rottweiler’s ancestors were the original herders that the Roman soldiers used while going on their military campaigns.

As they fought the European and Germanic tribes, the native people of Europe noticed these herding dogs and began using them for their own herding and protection purposes.

Over time the breed became common in herding cattle between tribes and villages. They were also used to pull small carts due to their power and size. When trained properly, they were able to herd cattle and protect the herd from bandits and thieves.

The breed became especially popular in the German town of Rottweil. Over time they were given the name Rottweiler Metzgerhund, or “Butcher’s Dog of Rottweil.”

As railroad cattle cars took their job in the 1800s, the breed’s intelligence found them work as some of the first military and police dogs for security and search-and-rescue operations. They were also one of the first breeds to be used as seeing-eye dogs for the blind.

Since the breed became standardized in 1901, it has changed little in size or temperament.

Rottweilers are a large breed.  Males can reach 24-27 inches at the shoulder, and females can reach 22-25 inches.

Males will typically weigh 95-135 pounds, and females commonly weigh 80-100 pounds

Rottweilers have a typical lifespan of 9-10 years.

The Rottweiler has a distinct look with both its coat and its head.

The coat has shorter hair with a dark black coat containing brown rust coloring around the face, neck, and legs.

They have a broad, solid chest, and their heads are distinct due to ears that tend to stay upright while also sticking out on the sides of the head.

 Rottweilers have an outer coat that is medium-length and tends to lay flat.  

Although they are not known as regular shedders, they should still be brushed several times a week and bathed regularly.

They will have higher periods of shedding twice a year, usually in the spring and fall, and require daily brushing during those times.

Not only does daily brushing remove loose hair and reduce shedding; it also keeps knots from building up in their hair and coat.

A key to grooming your dog is to start when they are a puppy.  If grooming is done consistently as a puppy, it becomes routine for both you and your puppy.

 Rottweilers are typically a healthy breed.  Still, they are susceptible to common diseases and some cancers of dogs that are their size.

Hip and elbow dysplasia are the most common health issues that they face.  This occurs when the leg or hip becomes weakened, and it can result in arthritis or lameness if not addressed.

One of the best ways to prevent this is by keeping your dog from excessive running on hard surfaces during active times.  This is especially vital when they are a puppy.

During times of washing or grooming, it is important to do a visual inspection of your Rottweiler to make sure everything looks and feels good.

Allergens are caused by dander, which is dead skin cells.  These skin cells are shed by any animal, including humans.

Because Rottweilers have medium-length hair, it does help their breed create less dander and allergens.  However, they can still cause allergy problems if you have a family member with allergen sensitivities, particularly if you have a small space with a large dog.

The biggest keys to reducing allergens with your Rottweiler puppy are proper and regular grooming and cleaning.

  • 1. Are Rottweilers dangerous?
    Rottweilers are undoubtedly loyal and protective. And in cases of poor training and little socialization, they can be very dangerous. However, most of the stories you hear about aggressive Rottweilers were caused by improper training or neglect. Well-brought-up Rottweilers are perfectly safe and friendly. They just need proper training, enough attention, and adequate exercise to be wonderful dogs.
  • 2. How much exercise do Rottweilers need?
    Rottweilers are energetic working dogs and they need plenty of exercise to stay happy. Adequate exercise will also prevent unwanted aggression, as aggression can come from pent-up energy. Energy levels vary among Rottweilers. Your particular dog may be more of a couch potato or more of an energy bomb. However, most Rottweilers should be good on around 30 minutes of exercise per day.
  • 3. How should you train a Rottweiler to prevent aggression?
    If well-trained and socialized, Rottweilers are not aggressive or dangerous. Here are a few tips for preventing aggression: Socialize the dog well when they are young. Establish yourself as leader of the pack. Give your Rottweiler a job to do so she has a purpose and keeps busy. Make sure your dog gets the attention and exercise she needs. Never neglect her or keep her pent up for long periods of time. If you handle her correctly, a Rottweiler makes a gentle, loving, playful companion.
  • 4. Are Rottweilers suitable for first-time owners?
    Rottweilers are fairly intense dogs. They need a lot of time and attention to bring out their potential and prevent unwanted behaviors. They may not be the best choice for an inexperienced or timid owner.
  • 5. Are Rottweilers good family dogs?
    With good training, Rottweilers can be wonderful family dogs. They have a silly, playful side that comes out around their families, and they can do really well with kids. In a best-case scenario, they make mellow, watchful, loving family pets who won’t hesitate to protect their families if they need to, but are able to discriminate between friend and foe.
  • 6. Do Rottweilers like people?
    Rottweilers LOVE their families. They are intensely loyal and devoted to their owners and love to spend time with them. However, they tend to be a bit more reserved with strange people. It’s important that they get the attention they crave from their owners, because neglect can lead to pent-up frustration and aggression.
  • 7. Are Rottweilers aggressive toward other pets?
    Again, if they are well-trained, Rottweilers can do great with other pets. However, keep in mind that they tend to be intolerant of other dogs of their same gender and have a high prey drive. They should be kept on a leash in public and are not the best candidates for off-leash dog parks. If they are raised in a house with cats or other dogs they generally do well with them. And they can be trained and guided to accept other animals.
  • 8. Do Rottweilers like to cuddle?
    Yes! Nobody told the Rottweiler that he isn’t a lap dog, and he may decide to come snuggle with you on the couch.
  • 9. Are Rottweilers herd dogs?
    Rottweilers were originally bred to herd cattle, and the instinct lives on in them. They may exhibit this by trying to herd people with small bumps and nudges.
  • 10. Are Rottweilers hard to train?
    Rottweilers are highly intelligent and trainable. However, they can be stubborn and may test you to see if you really mean what you say. They will need an experienced and firm hand to bring out the best in them.
