What’s a Rottweiler?

A Rottweiler is a medium-to-large breed dog and is considered to be one of the oldest dog breeds around. In fact, it’s said Rottweilers go all the way back to ancient Rome. At that time, the dogs were used for herding and driving cattle. They are also said to have come over the Alps with the Roman legions, protecting the soldiers and cattle along the way.

Then these dogs met and bred with native dogs in the Rottweil region (Germany). In German, these dogs are known as “Rottweil butcher’s dogs.” That’s because butchers bred the dogs to be a working dog.

Some Rottweilers can be really sweet, while others are clowns or very serious. They run the range when it comes to personality. This is also a dog that pays close attention to their surroundings. And we mean pay attention. They will look closely around them, taking in anything that seems strange.

Rottweilers must be socialized at a very early age. This is to curb and control their territorial instincts, which can be rather difficult to control otherwise. These dogs can be aggressive towards other dogs of their own sex, and some have also been known to not take kindly to cats. Don’t get us wrong, as noted earlier, there are Rotties who are very sweet and lovable. Just be aware they can also be aggressive with other dogs and pets.

Another thing about this breed is that they tend to want to be the dominant one. This makes the breed not a good candidate for first-time pet parents. Instead, these dogs need a pet parent who can be assertive and understands how to guide a very strong-minded and strong-bodied dog.

Rottweilers tend to be large, muscular, and stocky. And they’re very easy to groom! For the most part, these dogs are calm and full of confidence. They’re also very loyal to their pet parent and family.

Rottweilers have an average life expectancy of about 13 years; however, many tend to die early. This is because they develop joint diseases, bone cancer, heart disease, bloat, or even epilepsy. They’re also prone to panosteitis, osteochondritis, intervertebral disk disease, and wobbler’s syndrome. In addition, Rotties are subject to allergies, bacterial skin infections, colitis, and more.

As you may have guessed, these dogs need a lot of exercise. Not only do they need plenty of exercise to keep the weight off, but it also helps to wear off excess energy that Rotties may have. They’re not really good as a jogging companion, but they can walk and play hard to get rid of energy.

Males have very strong temperaments and are highly intelligent. They’re great working dogs and can learn a lot. However, they want to be dominant and tend to be bossy. This can make training a Rottie somewhat challenging. So, these dogs require a strong, assertive person who can give them the consistency and the firm hand they need.

OK—now let’s get on to our list of Rottweiler dog names! We’ve chosen to go with German names since these dogs originated in Germany.
