Living With a

Rottweilers are fairly easy to keep for such large dogs and, in fact, have a tendency to obesity if not exercised enough. Coat care is minimal; quick, weekly grooming will suffice most of the time. Some rottweilers do drool a fair amount, especially large males with loose flews (lips).

One of the most important things to remember with Rottweilers is that they need extensive and continuous socialization to be good family companions. Training is a must and should start in early puppyhood. Their courage is unquestioned, but it can be misdirected. Rottweilers love to work and will happily compete in virtually all dog sports from obedience to herding and weight pulls. Rottweilers are often very protective of their children and should be supervised frequently.

Personality

Rottweilers have been selected for guarding and protection work, and this must be kept in mind at all times. Well-socialized rottweilers get along nicely with people and other dogs, but males, in particular, can be a bit aggressive and dominant. Active, intelligent dogs, they are fully confident enough to act on their own, so they need guidance right from the start.

If left to their own devices, rottweilers can become nuisance barkers or diggers, and with their size, they are capable of much destruction. Bred to work, Rottweilers do best with training and jobs to do, even if just as a child’s companion. Aggression can be a problem, and this dog is fully capable of inflicting severe damage, so rottweilers do need a firm, patient hand and a knowledgeable owner.

Rottweilers are loyal

Rottweilers have a reputation for being intimidating and aggressive because they are natural guard dogs and can be very protective of their home and family. They are honest and deeply devoted to but they thrive on attention and being with people, and the more time they spend with their family the happier they’ll become.

Rottweilers like their groceries

Rottweilers love eating, so will work you for more food every chance they get. It’s not surprising to see giant Rottweilers who’ve convinced their owners they need to be fed more. Even though keeping your Rottweiler trim will be better for their health, hips, and joints, she’ll try to convince you she is starving.

Rottweilers are Athletic

Rottweilers are strong, athletic, alert dogs, with a desire to please (even with that independent streak). They enjoy dog sports like barn hunt, herding, agility, dock diving, nose work and tracking, and carting. But most of all they like to be with you. They are generally easy to train and must have training and socialization.
