Have you ever thought about fitting a Rottweiler into your family? You should!
Rottweiler Appearance and Characteristics:
The Rottweiler is a large breed dog, as you might have guessed, with an average weight of between 85-115lbs for females and 95-130lbs for males. That’s a lot of dog! They have only one signature color, black and rust or black and tan, and have a short, but very soft top coat. Because of their working breed past, it’s important to make sure your Rottie gets the exercise they need to burn off any excess energy they may have, especially when they are puppies. Rottweilers are very intelligent, but need to have a consistent training regimen to keep them from deciding they would much rather do what they want, not what you want! You also will want to keep them on a large breed specific food while they are growing to make sure they keep up with their bodies.
Rottweilers in the home:
Some Rottie owners describe them as being big teddy bears with a clown-like personality when with their favorite humans, but around strangers they can wary and aloof. This is because of their protective streak and their desire to guard their families against danger. And despite their large size, Rottweilers are great with children, often “herding” them around the house! Just watch out for very small children, as a Rottie could accidently knock them down. It’s best to socialize your Rottweiler puppy early with all sort of different people and environments so they don’t become scared or antisocial as sometimes happens with protective breeds.
