Large Dog Breeds - Rottweilers

Rottweiler 101

The Rottweiler is a very popular large dog breed. They were originally bred to herd life stock and to pull carts laden with butchered meat and other products to market. When the railway replaced the Rottweiler’s job, they started being used as search and rescue dogs, guard dogs, police dogs and in other roles. All in all, Rottweilers have filled the role of working dogs for many years.

Rottweiler Personality

Rottweiler is a good-natured, placid dog that is known for being very devoted, obedient, biddable and eager to work. They are known for being fearless and self-assured dogs that have a steady temperament. They react to their surroundings with great alertness. They want to protect their home and family in times of danger so it is up to us humans to give them proper training so that they can understand our cues.

Rottweiler Considerations

The Rottweiler is a very powerful breed. They have very well developed herding and guarding instincts. It is possible for a Rottweiler to display potentially dangerous behavior. This for the most part results from irresponsible breeding and ownership, abuse, neglect, or lack of socialization and training. The exceptional strength of a Rottweiler is an additional factor that cannot be neglected either. Training is a must.
