The Rottweiler has a rather bad reputation, due to the unscrupulous behavior of some breeders a few years ago. But a Rottweiler is an incredibly loyal dog and an excellent pet when well-trained. Take a look at our photo gallery to learn more!
The Rottweiler has existed since Roman times but the breed was only officially recognised in 1966. For a long time it accompanied the butchers who went to the region of Württemberg to protect their cattle against bandits. It was used for military purposes during the First World War, but has since been much appreciated as a pet dog.
A Rottweiler's training must be firm, without ever resorting to brutality, as this could lead to aggressive behaviour. Rottweilers must be socialised from an early age, even if dominant males do not much like the company of other dogs.
