Robust and powerful, the Rottweiler is happiest when
given a job to perform. His intelligence, endurance and willingness to work
make him suitable as a police dog, herder, service dog, therapy dog, obedience
competitor and devoted companion. An inherent protector, the Rottweiler is
self-confident and responds quietly and with a wait-and-see attitude to
influences in his environment. He must be medium in size and his coat is black
with rust to mahogany markings.
Rottweiler’s love their people and may behave in a
clownish manner toward family and friends, but they are also protective of
their territory and do not welcome strangers until properly introduced.
Obedience training and socialization are musts. Rottweilers must be exercised
daily, but require minimal grooming maintenance.
