All about a Rottweiler

A Powerful Dog

The Rottweiler is black with beautiful tan markings on the muzzle, cheeks, chest, eyebrows, and legs. The markings are typically clearly defined. There should not be any white or straw colored markings on the dog. An unusual coloring could indicate that the puppy may be a mixed breed.

The one most prominent feature of this breed is the head, which appears to be a little over-sized. Giving the dog its look of being alert, the forehead is wrinkly. Even the coat of this breed is special, being of medium length with an undercoat that is waterproof. The coat requires only minimal brushing to stay healthy and shiny. Rottweiler puppies really don’t come into their voices until they are 2 or 3 years old so if you’re looking for a puppy that doesn’t bark too much you should consider a Rottweiler.Although a Rottweiler is born with a tail, these are generally docked extremely short. The reason is that Rottweilers used for working can have problems with the tail breaking and then getting infected from being in the field.

Rottweiler dogs are great watchdogs. The size and strength of the breed makes them a great watchdog. Even though this dog does not bark often, when feeling threatened or afraid, the powerful voice is heard. Rottweilers are known to be fiercely protective of their property and their families and are vigilant about protecting what they love.Rottweilers are known to be exceptionally courageous and will put themselves in danger to protect their loved ones.

Rottweiler puppies are easy to train. Rottweilers as a breed are very attentive and like to learn and stay active. Rottweilers are known for their intelligence so if you want a dog that is more intelligent than most other breeds and is easy to train and will be obedient and respectful of your authority then a Rottweiler is the dog for you.

Rottweilers were bred to be working dogs and they love to be given tasks. They need a job to do in order to be truly happy. If they are not given work to do or kept busy Rottweilers will get bored and can be destructive so make sure that your Rottweiler gets lots of exercise.The Rottweiler dog is loyal, intelligent and desires to please. Rottweilers are also proving to be outstanding therapy dogs and recognized as excellent service dogs for the physically challenged.

Socialization is crucial for Rottweiler puppies. Rottweiler puppies should start being socialized within a year. Because of their strength and size it's important to start training early and to socialize early. They need to be taught what acceptable behavior is and how to behave around family members, kids, the general public and other dogs. If the dog is socialized young, handled with a firm hand, and introduced to various situations it will make a wonderful, devoted pet that is great with children and other animals.

Next to socialization start training early. Start teaching your pup to sit, down, stand, stay, heel and come. The most important activities are playing, eating, sleeping and social contact between you and your dog. Control the games, take charge of the sleeping areas, put your Rotti on a feeding schedule and don't let your dog demand your attention. Just like children Rottweiler puppies enjoy having a routine and thrive when they are given lots of training, lots of exercise, and a solid routine.

Rottweiler dogs often gravitate naturally towards children.
