Welcome

Our network of Rottweiler breeders offer healthy Rottweiler puppies and we are here to help find perfect homes for them. Rottweilers are extremely loyal, which makes them perfect companions and guard dogs. They do not need a lot of special attention but they do require frequent exercise.

Having one can bring you tremendous joy and satisfaction.


Find Rottweiler Puppies for Sale

We make things simpler and more convenient. We already have a network of breeders that can be contacted for any Rottweiler for sale. We have also provided helpful information and tips about Rottweilers to help you understand the breed better.


Breed Summary

One of the most important steps to owning a dog is to get to know the breed before bringing on home. Looking up Rottweiler dog breed information is for you to know what to expect from the breed and what is expected of you as his new owner. Rottweiler characteristic around strangers is wariness. Proper training and socialization brings out the true calm and confident nature of these dogs. They are relatively easy to train because Rottweilers are inherently eager to please. Maintenance and grooming needs are mostly similar with that of other dog breeds. The Facts & Information section will provide you with more information about Rottweiler temperament and personalities.

Facts - Overview

Every new owner needs to know and understand some basic Rottweiler breed information to help prepare for the task ahead. A Rottweiler needs to be taken care of, to be trained and disciplined. When done properly, a Rottweiler will grow up to be an even-mannered, loyal and confident companion. In fact, a lot of owners report that their Rotties (as they are often called), love to cuddle. They are very affectionate and playful with their families but won’t easily buddy up to newcomers.

Rottweilers have large and broad heads, with muscular, athletic bodies. The ears are triangular and pendant. Their noses are wide and black. The lips are black, too, as well as the insides of their mouth. The teeth meet in a scissor bite. The body is black, with mahogany-colored markings over the cheeks, eyes, under the tail and lower legs. Black is the only accepted color for Rottweiler dog breed, according to several clubs around the world such as the AKC.

Regular exercise is very important for Rottweiler health. They are much more suited to live in the suburbs where they have large spaces to play and exercise. They need to burn off some energy to avoid getting bored. An hour of running and several walks throughout the day are a must. Make sure to provide adequate rest after each activity. Also, limit outdoor exercise and activity when the weather is hot because they are prone to overheating and heat stroke.

Their coats are double, with medium-length, straight, coarse hair. Weekly brushing removes any loose hair and distributes natural oils to keep the coats healthy. Heavy shedding happens twice a year, in the spring and fall. Bathing is as necessary. Brushing the teeth is also very important to avoid build up of tartar, which can lead to several dental problems. 


Facts - Personality

This breed is best for people who have the time to spend on training, socializing and exercising their Rotties. Owners should also be fully committed in properly raising their Rottie.

Rottweilers are loyal, playful, affectionate, and love to cuddle. Owners who took good care and gave proper training for their Rottweilers would note that Rottweiler personality is actually playful. They love to cuddle with their owners. These positive characteristic can only be brought out if the Rottie is treated properly and given the right amount of discipline and exercise.

Activity is important in keeping Rottweiler temperament desirable. They need to have several walks per day and at least 1 hour of running time in order to burn off their excess energy. A bored Rottweiler chews everything in sight and is known to destroy an entire couch in just minutes. Exercise should be managed in hot, sunny weather because they are prone to overheating because of their black and thick coats.

A Rottweiler also tends to exhibit dominant behavior. If allowed, they can easily assume the leadership role. Boundaries and rules must be imposed in a strictly consistent manner. They should be treated with a firm and confident demeanor. Aggressive behavior towards a Rottweiler will only cause him to take the leadership role for himself.

When faced with newcomers and strangers, a Rottweiler naturally responds with wariness. They do not take to strangers immediately because they take their time sizing them up before deciding if the newcomer is worthy of their affection and time. Early and frequent socialization should be done to help them accept that guests are welcome in his home. 


Facts - Care

Rottweiler training should be done early, as part of puppy care. It should be done in a consistent and firm but non-aggressive manner. They can be dominant and would assert themselves any chance they get. Be consistent and never budge, even for an inch. A slight chink in your demeanor is enough for them to assume leadership and exert dominance.

Rottweiler puppy care should include ample time for outdoor exercise and socialization. The earlier they are socialized, the better they behave later on around strangers. Proper training raises them to be calm and confident dogs that are a joy to be with. They are also rarely aggressive when around strangers, even if they are naturally wary of newcomers.

Rottweiler care must emphasize the importance of moderate exercise. They are better off living in homes with large spaces, such as the suburbs, where they can run around.

Agility exercises are welcome, even though Rottweilers aren’t the most agile of all dog breeds. They enjoy activities that give them a “job” to do. The breed was originally for cattle driving and cart hauling, which makes them naturally inclined to follow orders and perform roles. To make them feel as if they are doing a job, as the breed was originally meant for, have them wear a backpack when walking. 


Facts - Grooming

Learning how to groom Rottweiler properly is important to keep them healthy. Rottweilers have double coats. Their undercoat is concentrated and thicker on the thighs and on the neck. The thickness varies, which depends on the climate where the Rottweiler lives. Their top coat is of medium length, shorter over the ears, head and legs compared to the rest of their body. Their hair is straight, coarse, and of medium length. They shed heavily twice a year.

Rottweiler grooming requires weekly brushing. Use a soft-bristled brush or a rubber hound mitt. Loose hair is removed and the natural oils are distributed over the coats, making it look shinier and healthier. During the shedding period, in the fall and spring seasons, more frequent brushing may be required, about 2-3 times a week. Sometimes daily brushing may be necessary, depending on how much hair is shed. Blowing out may also be required, as Rottweilers heavily shed when in season.

Bathing is as needed, when they are visibly dirty or exceptionally smelly. They do not often require daily baths, though. A regular weekly bath with a gentle dog shampoo can be done without risk of damaging the coats.

Ears should be regularly checked for any sign of infection, buildup of ear wax or irritation. Regular cleaning prevents ear problems. Use a clean cotton ball with a cleanser approved by a veterinarian. Clean the ears as deep as the level of your 1st knuckle - any deeper than this will put the dog at risk of ear injuries. Cotton swabs should never be used for cleaning the Rottweiler’s ear canals as it may push wax or dirt further inside the ears.

The teeth, which meet in a scissor bite, are regularly brushed to prevent any dental problems. Brush at least once a week to discourage tartar build-up. Brushing also promotes better gum health as well as prevents bad breath. Use gentle pet toothpaste, as approved by the veterinarian.

The nails are trimmed on a monthly basis if these do not naturally wear down from all the Rottweiler’s outdoor activities. Trimming every 2 weeks may also be necessary, especially if the nails are already clicking on the floor. 


Facts - Health

As with every other dog breed, Rottweilers are prone to develop a few health problems. On an average, Rottweiler life span is at 10-12 years. Rottweiler is among the few dog breeds that are most prone to develop hip dysplasia, ranging from mild to severe conditions. This condition is characterized by an improper fit of the legs’ femoral head into the socket in the hip bone. Other conditions that affect Rottweiler health include allergies, eye problems (e.g., eyelid deformities, progressive retinal atrophy, and cataracts), heart problems and von Willebrand disease.

Any disease, no matter how serious, can be effectively treated if it is detected early. Regular veterinarian check up, vitamins, proper exercise and providing proper Rottweiler nutrition will help reduce the risks for any disease.

Checking if the parents are listed in the database of the CHIC (Canine Health Information Center). If they are, this means that the parents have been cleared by the Canine Eye Registry Foundation (for eye problems tendencies) and by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (for hip and elbow risk evaluation). The puppies of registered parents have lesser tendencies to develop serious health issues later on in life.

Proper Rottweiler nutrition is also very important to prevent obesity which can increase the risk for arthritis and other hip and elbow problems. Provide a well-balanced diet, as well as exercise to keep the Rottweiler within the normal weight range of 75-110 pounds. 


Facts - History

The history of Rottweiler can be traced back to Roman times. The original stock was the drover dogs that the Romans used to herd flocks and cattle that the Roman used brought with them as they conquered Europe. The name came from “Rottweil”, a trade hub in the 1th century built over an ancient Roman bath. “Rottweil” was originally called “das Rote Wil”, which meant “the red tile”, a reference to the remnant of red tiles of the ancient Roman baths. Cattlemen and butchers in the 12th century would bring the descendants of the Roman drover dogs to this trade center until the 19th century. Hence, the dogs became known as Rottweiler Metzgerhund, the Butcher’s dog.

In the mid 1800’s, when the industrial revolution started, drover dogs were no longer needed as much. Hence, Rottweilers were relatively less known until 1901. Rottweiler history became clearer in 1901, when a club was formed for Rottweilers and Leonbergers. This club formulated the written standards for the Rottweiler breed, focusing on the temperament and the physical attributes.

In the early 20th century, Rottweiler became more known as police dogs. Their intimidating appearance and their ability to be trained for police work made them perfect for the job. The German army used them, too as part of army work and activities during the 1st World War. In 1931, the breed was admitted into the American Kennel Club. The breed’s official standard was approved in 1935. In 1948, the first Rottweiler won a championship title in AKC conformation.
