Rottweiler Grooming and Breed Care

Rottweiler Temperament

The Rottweiler is a dog that loves to work, and has plenty of stamina, power, and endurance. These dogs are fiercely loyal and protective, and will do whatever it takes to defend their loved ones. Many tend to bond to one particular person more than others. They are confident, powerful, serious, and courageous. However, they are not the right choice for timid and inexperienced dog owners, as they do require proper training and handling. He is responsive and intelligent, and with an assertive trainer who uses positive training methods the Rottweiler will learn extremely quickly. He is an extremely territorial creature, and early socialization for this breed is essential. The Rottweiler needs firm discipline and consistent training.

 

It is important to provide regular exercise, plenty of interaction, and mental stimulation for the Rottweiler. These dogs can be a handful, and do have a fair amount of energy. A safe, secure area is essential for these dogs to play and exercise, and he will need plenty of space, as he is a large creature. Rottweilers tend to get on well with children when brought up with them, and with older children that will not pester them. He tends to be aloof around strangers, and care must be taken because of his strong protective streak - again, early socialization and proper training is a key factor. Early exposure to pets is also important, and the Rottweiler can be aggressive towards cats and dogs. However, with the right family and owner, the Rottweiler can make a loyal, devoted, and loving pet.

Rottweiler Appearance

The Rottweiler is a large dog, with a sturdy, muscular build. He has a handsome yet rugged look about him, and an intelligent expression. His coat is short, close fitting, and has a coarse texture. The coloring of the Rottweiler is black with mahogany or tan markings. The Rottweiler weighs in at around 80-100 pounds for females, and 95-135 pounds for males. The height of these dogs is around 22-25 inches for females, and 24-27 inches for males.

Rottweiler Grooming

The grooming requirements for the Rottweiler are not high, and you can keep his coat in good condition with a once weekly brushing. However, you will need to increase this when he is shedding more heavily. He is a medium shedder, and therefore may not prove ideal for allergy sufferers.

Rottweiler Health Problems and Life Expectancy

As with many large dogs, the Rottweiler has a shorter life expectancy than many other breeds, and lives to around 9-10 years. There are a number of health problems to look out for with this breed, and this includes heart problems, eye diseases, bloat, thyroid problems, cancer, OCD, HD, seizures, and allergies. The parents of the Rottweiler puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates and heart clearance.

Rottweiler History

The Rottweiler originates from Germany and was used in the control of livestock. They have also been used effectively as guard dogs and police dogs. The Rottweiler gets his name from the town of Rottweil in Germany.
