With its origins traced back as far as Roman times,
the Rottweiler was originally used for protection purposes
and the herding of animals.
It is considered one of the oldest breeds of dogs in the world.
The Rottweiler, as we know it today; originated from Germany.
The breed is classed as a working dog, although they are well renowned for being excellent guard and protection dogs, they are exceptionally well natured, loyal and devoted companions.
Recognisable by their Black and Tan colouring, they possess both a top coat and undercoat. Having an average lifespan of up to 12 years. Rottweilers can reach a height of up to 68 cm at the shoulder and weigh as much as 60 kg.
They are generally considered an extremely confident,
obedient and fearless dog.
As such, it is advisable as with most breeds of dogs;
that they undergo some form of obedience training.
It is important that your dog both respects you
and knows its place in your family.
