Rottweiler Information

rottweiler breedThis hardworking dog loves to have a job to perform. His endurance coupled with intelligence and an innate desire to protect makes him an excellent companion, and it’s no surprise that he is used as a police dog, service dog, herder and therapy dog.

The Rottweiler’s powerful appearance can be intimating, but when trained he is a sweet, loving dog who has been known to sit on his owner’s lap like a small dog. For maintenance, his short black and tan coat needs a quick brushing every now and then; for exercise, make sure he gets a good walk or two every day!
