Are you afraid?
I really do not know how you feel about Rottweilers but, I know that before I was around one that much, I was afraid of them. They have a reputation that precedes them and the general public has this bad picture in their minds of violent dogs with rabies and foaming at the mouth. This is not the case at all! Rottweilers can be great guard dogs, great companions and your best friend. On the other hand, these dogs smell fear so never show fear or they may go into combat or protection mode. I have had Rottweilers my entire life and if they are properly loved and trained to be nonviolent then, no attacks will occur. They are bred to protect not attack.
If a canine, any breed, is trained, properly socialized and loved they will never harm you. Make them and treat them like family because in a way they are family members and they protect and love the family so love them back. Do not stare them down because, to a dog this is a sign to fight and you do not want to go toe to toe with a Rottweiler, male or female.
Rottweilers originated in Rottweil, Germany. they were used to handle livestock and to pull carts. These dogs are just naturally strong. Rottweilers are commonly used as seeing eye dogs, police dogs and they are used in search and rescue missions. The American Kennel Club recognized this beautiful dog over fifty years ago. The American Kennel Club says that Rottweilers are calm, confident and dogs and are known for their self assured demeanor and yet they are quite flexible. The rottweiler that we own is very agile. She will get into little spots to lie down and sometimes I wonder how she is going to squeeze out but, she always does. Rottweilers can be very quiet with a wait and see attitude. they have an inherited desire to protect their family and their home. they are intelligent dogs with a burning desire to work. Rottweilers are now bred primarily to be guard dogs.
Hip dysplasia is a common problem in these and most larger breeds. A female rottweiler grows to be between 80-120lbs and the grown males can weigh from 110-160lbs and their height is between 23-28 inches tall. The litters of puppies are anywhere between 8 and 13. The average life span of these loving pets is between eight and fifteen years. It is important to keep these dogs around people to socialize them. This particular dog's intelligence, strength, work ethic and overall endurance, make them ideal service dogs, guard and police dogs or just a great companion. Our rottweiler is truly a member of the family. She does protect us when someone that we do not know is at our home.
Rottweilers are also great with tracking, herding, guarding and protecting people and property. When buying one of these large breed dogs remember that a Rottweiler eats an average of 20lbs of dry food per week. One other thing to consider is, that the dog will need to be taken to the vet twice a year because they are prone to catching viruses. Then, if they stay inside, they must be taken outside to use the restroom unless, the dog can be trained to use puppy pads.
The Rottweiler is a double coated breed with a medium length coat and a soft undercoat. They shed slightly twice a year in the spring and in the fall. These pets range in price between 500-2000 each. It is important to watch this breed's diet because they tend to overeat if they are not monitored. They also tend to snore loudly in their sleep. Keep them moving and exercising which isn't hard because Rottweiler's love working or having a goal to accomplish.,
Rottweiler puppies really like to bite so, make sure to have plenty of good toys around for this dog as it grows up. Rotttweilers like any other dog will get destructive if they stay bored and under excercised. As long as you remember to give them plenty of exercise and lots of attention. Rottweiler's are strong, very protective somewhat reluctant to show their feelings. Rotts are great with kids, adults and other animals as long as they are raised not to be violent but, it's all in the way that they are brought up as puppies.
