Breeds › Rottweiler
The breed was developed by cattle dealers in the livestock markets of Germany who wanted a strong drovers' dog, which could also act as a guard dog against thieves.
First time owner
Someone who has a job for a Rottweiler. They are a popular choice for use in search and rescue and with the police.
Anyone who's not a natural leader. You need to provide a Rottie with leadership he can trust and respect or he will take the role on himself.
People will amusingly say "You should put a saddle on it!"
High (Two hours or more)
Without sufficient mental and physical exercise will probably do the wall of death around the living room!
Dogs that you mainly just need to polish! But be warned - short haired dogs moult all the time!
All canines drop some hair, think of it as dog glitter!
Sorry, we're unable to find any matching puppies at the moment but new puppies are added to Tailwise every day.
