Rottweilers are natural herders and carry those same traits today, so plan on spending time training and socializing your Rottweiler puppy. He'll also want you to join him for a few solid workouts daily. This intelligent, working dog loves his people and but a well-trained puppy who gets plenty of exercise will reward you with affection and loyalty.

History & Job

Origin: Germany

Year Recognized: 1931

Breed History & Job Description: What do many of the really big, powerful breeds have in common (other than being able to splatter the walls with slobber)? They are descended from the Mastiff-type dogs that first appeared in Asia. The Rottweiler’s ancestors were thought to have originated with the Ancient Romans, who brought the dogs with them when they traveled across Europe, using them to guide cattle—the Romans’ food supply on the road—and guard encampments.

Rottweilers are generally a healthy breed. Like all breeds there may be some health issues. Rottweilers are subject to some genetic problems that can be passed on to any puppies they produce. Such defects include hip and elbow dysplasia (a malformation of the joint that can be crippling), several eye problems, bleeding disorders, heart defects and cancer. Some dogs may be faced with these health challenges in their lives, but the majority of Rottweilers are healthy dogs.
