The Rottweiler is an active and playful German breed dog and originally a sheepdog. It is also a confident, alert and alert family dog. Rottweilers often have a bad reputation but they are essentially very affectionate and obedient. When this dog grows up in a social environment and enjoys a consistent upbringing, it is a loyal, calm companion. Rottweilers learn very quickly. They are often used as police dogs. They also do very well as sports dogs.
A Rottweiler has a compact, athletic and powerful body. Its head is broad with a slightly domed skull and a straight muzzle. It is on average 68 cm high. An average Rottweiler weighs about 68 kg. Its coarse coat is short and thick. Rottweiler puppies are always black and brown. Black is the basic color of a Rottweiler. Above this they have sharply defined mahogany to light brown markings above the eyes, on the cheeks, muzzle, throat, chest and legs. They also come with a white spot on the chest and / or long hair but this is undesirable for this breed.
Rottweilers require relatively little maintenance. The care of their coat is not too bad because it is short. Regular brushing with a stiff bristle brush should help remove excess or dead hair. Many owners use dry shampoo to care for their Rottweilers to ensure that the essential oils remain in the coat. Rottweilers demand quality food. They need a lot of exercise and excel in a variety of sports and trials. Rewards work very well in training these dogs. A Rottweiler needs a large yard in which to run around and at least two long walks a day of at least 2 hours in total. That keeps him healthy. Its life expectancy is 10 to 11 years.
