Pros & Cons of a Rottweiler | Dog Breeds

August 30, 2019


I’m Julia Szabo, also known as a Pet Reporter,
and I am the “Living with Dogs” columnist for dogster.com. I’ve actually written 6 books and I’m hard
at work on my next one. It will be about about dogs — that’s as much
as I can say right now. I love dogs and I think nobody’s life is complete
without one. So I’m here to tell you about a variety of
different dogs breeds that might suit your lifestyle. I hope you’ll adopt one soon. The Rottweiler is an amazing dog. And actually, if you want to be really technical,
because it is a German breed, the W is pronounced as a V, like victory. So it’s Rott-Veiler. There is actually a statue in Rotweill, Germany
of a Rottweiler, a beautiful dog. These dogs were originally used as working
dogs, and they still are used as working dogs. But this is a great example of a dog whose
job has evolved to meet, you know, and match what humans need. In the old days, the Rottweiler was actually
used as a drover. They actually drove cattle and other livestocks
for the people who were butchering them. They also accompanied butchers to market. And the money was often tied around their
neck, because, who’s gonna mess with a Rottweiler? But, in reality, they’re actually very cuddly,
wonderful dogs. The Rottweiler now works in search and rescue…they
do therapy work. They are service dogs also, because they’re
very strong. They pull things. You know, they’re just amazing all around,
strong working dogs, and they like to have a job. Similar to a pitbull, a Rottweiler really
does need a strong hand, a strong but gentle hand in training. That’s very important for a dog like a Rottweiler,
so that he or she doesn’t become aggressive. So I’ve gotten to know many of them, I love
this breed. They make wonderful dogs, and I think they’re
beautiful. Just the black glossy coat with the brown
marking. They often have little eyebrows. And sometimes when you see mutts with eyebrows,
it’s pretty easy to figure out that there’s some Rottweiler in the lineage.

    Waiting to learn the pros & cons owning a Rotty; what happened? Pits appeared warm & friendly; that's nice. When you do Shepherds, let me know. Owned 15+ over the past 25 years; raised, shown (locally/regionally, nationally & internationally) and trained many! Expert? Who actually is? What exact qualifications are used to award an an individual that title? I would start off with a German family that has been involved, raised & trained GSD's for a minimum of 3 generations. Now they are EXPERTS,,,,,,,😋. Am I one? To some, here in this country; perhaps? However I view myself as being well versed on the topic; having a good solid handle on both the Do's & Don'ts with the breed. Key in owning a GSD. In addition, I can hook you up with a great contact I have in Germany; AN EXPERT,,,,,,,,,,😎.

    Eeeks…You're right about the German pronunciation of 'w' however, you are still off. Also, all my research show that it is of Roman origin. So, so when you say it is a German breed, what do you mean?

    Didn't see one rottweiler

    Pros: they do okay in a colder climate with a dual coat, they’re very even tempered, laid back as adults, loyal, and guarding comes naturally to them. They’re goofy, gentle giants.

    Cons: guarding comes natural to them – this can be a problem for less experienced owners, they hog the furniture and think they’re lap dogs, they will always sit on your feet so they always fall asleep, and they’re clumsy in the house.

    Great way to confuse people interested in Rottweilers.. Use actual Rottweilers in the video instead of pit bulls…
