The Rottweiler is a very alert, loyal and loving companion. They are calm, and self confident. Rotties are quick to learn and easy to please. Family is very important to the Rottie and they are very social within the home. Children will be loved and adults will be respected, with the right training. Being very loyal a Rottie will fight to protect their family with all they have. Rotties are strong and possess a high pain tolerance. Proper socialization from puppy hood and firm handling is a must to ensure that the dog does not assume leadership of the family. Also beware of possessiveness with food and toys. To avoid this, pet the dog while it is eating and get it used to people handling its food and toys. Mental stimulation is a must because these dogs can become bored quite easily and this can lead to destructiveness, health problems and aggressiveness. Rottweilers are friendly but do have a natural tendency towards dominance. Aggressiveness is not a characteristic of properly bred Rottweiler, but can be brought out in the breed without proper training and socialization. Males tend to be aggressive with other males, altering the dog if only a pet is suggested. As a rule, they don't bark unnecessarily and are great guard dogs, alerting when there is danger of something out of the ordinary. Rotties are active, happy and obedient, only wanting to please their master. Harsh words and actions will hurt Rotties feelings and are not needed to train them, as they are very quick to learn. THE ROTTEILER; EAT,SLEEP,FETCH,KILL
Thanks goodness it's the Rotteiler, and not the RottWeiler, whose only purpose in life is to eat, sleep, fetch, kill. 'Cause I've been owned by a RottWeiler, and his motto was, eat, sleep, love and cuddle.
I love for the most part German bred dogs but I really don't like German shepherds in that I'd never own one at my job a lot of ppl got them and to be honest im a lil afraid of pit bulls they do scare me but ill go work in a house without the owner being there over a shepherd I don't know if its that ppl just don't socialize them or what but they are kind of aggressive ive only seen a few rotties they aren't popular here but ive never come across a mean rottie
