Rottweiler pups need loads of physical stimulation. This breed loves to wrestle and get plenty of fetch in.
Rottweiler puppies also enjoy obedience training. They are thought to be one of the world’s smartest breeds, after all! If you consider yourself active, a Rottweiler pup may be right for you.
Despite their short coat, Rottweilers can make an apartment with hardwood floors look like a shag carpet in a matter of days. Daily brushing and weekly baths will help cut down on the amount of fur that ends up everywhere your Rottweiler pup sits. Remember, you can find just about any breed of dog you are looking for at a shelter or rescue.
Like the mythical Greek hero Hercules, the Rottweiler is strong and true with a loving heart.When he moves, he displays strength and stamina, but when you look into his eyes you see warm, dark-brown pools reflecting a mellow, intelligent, alert, and fearless expression.
A well-bred Rottweiler is calm and confident. He’s typically aloof toward strangers, but never timid or fearful. Rottweilers exhibit a “wait-and-see” attitude when confronted with new people and situations. When these characteristics come together as they should, the Rottweiler is a natural guard dog with a mellow disposition who is successful not only in police, military, and customs work but also as a family friend and protector.
Ask your vet about your dog’s diet and what they recommend for feeding your pooch to keep them at a healthy weight. Weight gain can lead to other health issues or worsen problems like arthritis.
