Rottweiler! Treat them with love, they'll be loving dogs!
The only problem here is that I do not have my very first pictures of my Rottie, so they only go back so far! But still, Rotts are such a beautiful dog, with such great demeanor, and of course protective.
- You should always note that Rottweilers do NOT need to be trained to protect. They are very loyal dogs and if you are good to them and show them love, they will protect you with their life.
When I went dog shopping I didn't know what kind of dog I wanted. I just know I wanted a cute one. When I thumbed through a dog book I saw a Rottweiler and the black rim around the mouth was so cute, it looked like the dog was smiling. THAT is what got me to wanting a Rottweiler.
I had no idea they had a bad rap until everyone started telling me they were mean. I just believe a dog is, what you treat it like! I have literally turned a few people into dog lovers with my Rottweiler, and now she's an old gal, but she's still always by my side, and she proved that being brought up with love, they give love and loyalty in return.
I hope you enjoy these photos of my Rottie, her name is Kory. I bought her from a guy in a very small town 10 years ago. She's been my traveling buddy, and best companion, and my most loyal friend. I even took her sight seeing with me to the Great Smoky Mountains. Two places even invited us both in when I thought we were only going to get to window shop! We didn't get time to get our Wild West Photo in, sadly it rained that day, but here are some others that are just adorable that I'd love to share! Enjoy!
A Young Kory
My little youngin!
The photos to the side are of my girl Kory when she was about 5-8 months. She was the runt of the litter, but you wouldn't know it from her bark! She has a deep bark for a female.. and a runt!
Sometimes we do things for ourselves in life we need to do! I always wanted a dog, and I finally got one. I have to say out of everything, getting her was one of the best things I've ever done for myself.
If you're thinking of getting a Rottweiler, please look into them and make sure they are right for your family. The grow quite quickly but that doesn't mean they will be mean! I took my dog down to the beach to keep her well socialized. I knew there would be children there who always want to pet a dog on the beach! It worked like a charm!
It was the perfect place to train her. I would tell the children, "she's not allowed for you to pet her unless she stays sitting down." Children are willing subjects when it comes to animals! They really helped train her around children. It stuck with her as any time she sees kids now she sits because she thinks they'll come to play with her or pet her! :) It's really cute!
- I wish now I could go back and thank the kids that were so patient for her to sit!
She's pulled a few fast ones, like seeing kids go inside the post office one day. She threw her toy out the window in hopes one of the kids would see it and come to play! Who says dogs aren't smart! That was good thinking for a dog I must say!
Also, if you want your dog to be passive, but protective, please know that you never have to train a Rottweiler to be protective. The more love you show that animal, the more protection it's going to show you! Trust me, this is one spoiled girl, but NOBODY comes up to my car, without her first checking them out. She won't let anyone close to her mommie until she checks them out LOL!
Well, I could go on and on, but that's really the basics of owning any dog (or other pet.) If you treat them with kind loving care, they will protect you at all cost. Also they will have learned that being a good pup gets them rewards like getting to play with the kids, or other animals.
- Take note to what your Rottweiler likes or dislikes and just try to keep them away from situations that they don't like, after all, our dogs have feelings and they should be respected as well!

This hub has been up for awhile, and my Rottie has passed on due to the evil cancer. But still to this day I am so glad to see that people learned from this hub how to socialize their Rottweiler so they are trained to like being around people.
They absolutely love children, not a time went by that my girl didn't sit right down so a child would come and pet her! She adored kids! My father who had been afraid of all dogs fell in love with her, and let her steal him warm seat on the sofa.
Always treat your animal with love, and that's what you'll get in return. They are not aggressive breeds, it's aggressive owners. As dad always said "if it has a mouth it can bite." That goes for the little ones that have tiny teeth that tear skin much more easily and quick to jump at little children.
Dogs tend to know their size and know a bump can knock down a child and are careful. Little dogs jump up and can scratch the eye on a child, so never knock a breed, just make sure a pet is properly trained never to jump up on anyone regardless of it's size.
