A Rottweiler owner should be an extremely responsible experienced person committed to the care, training, exercise and companionship of their dog. They should be knowledgeable about this breed type and the specific needs of this breed.
Rottweilers require attention, affection, and exercise, but they also need a firm dominate owner who isnít afraid to take on the challenges of owning a large breed dog. The Rottweiler is a basically calm, confident, courageous and naturally protective dog with a self-assured aloofness. He is a powerful dog with an inherent desire to protect home and family. The Rottweiler is strong willed and willing to work which makes him an especially good companion dog.
Rottweilers always like to touch and follow you. They love to give great big hugs around your waist and reach up and kiss your face. They are happy to embrace their owners and will stay in that position with their head on your shoulder or lap and fall asleep. They also like to play ball, go swimming, go hiking and carry your doggie backpack. In fact, of all the breeds of dogs out there, Rottweilers are the most versatile. They are capable of doing nearly all activities of all the other breeds of dogs combined. As an example, they make great therapy dogs, search and rescue dogs, tracking dogs, hunting dogs, dock dogs, obedience dogs, agility dogs, service dogs, herding dogs, Schutzhund dogs, protection dogs, fly ball dogs, carting dogs, weight pulling dogs, jumping competition dogs, and of course show dogs, to name a few, but the thing they do best is to be your companion dog. What other breed of dog do you know of that can do all that?
