Origin




The Rottweiler is probably descended from the Italian Mastiff, which
accompanied the herds that the Romans brought with them when they
invaded Europe. During the Middle Ages, it was used as a herder, as a guard,
messenger dog, draught dog, and for police work. It was bred in the German
town of Rottweiler in Wurttemberg. Practically extinct in the 1800's, the breed
population began a comeback in the early twentieth century due to the efforts
of enthusiastic breeders centered in Stuttgart.

In Germany on January 13th 1907, the DRK (Deutscher Rottweiler-Klub
(German Rottweiler Club) was established. Shortly after on April 27, 1907, the
SDRK - Süddeutscher Rottweiler-Klub (South German Rottweiler Club) was
formed, which later became the IRK (International Rottweiler Club). The
Rottweiler standard was then set. The breed was first recognized by the AKC in
1931. Some of the Rottweiler's talents include: tracking, herding, watchdog,
guarding, search and rescue, guide dogs for the blind, police work, carting,
competitive obedience, and schutzhund.

                                                           The Rottweiler has a
                                                           muscular, massive, powerful
                                                           body. The head is broad with
                                                           a rounded forehead. The
                                                           muzzle is well-developed.
                                                           The teeth meet in a scissors
                                                           bite. The wide nose is black.
                                                           The lips are black and inside
                                                           the mouth dark. The
                                                           medium sized eyes are dark
                                                           and almond-shaped.

                                                     Some of Rottweilers have
                                                     been known to have blue
eyes or one blue and one brown eye. This trait is not recognized in the show
world and does not meet the breed’s written standard. The ears are triangular,
carried forward. The tail is customarily docked. Note: docking tails is illegal in
most parts of Europe. Rear dewclaws are often removed. The chest is broad
and deep. The coat is short, hard and thick. It is black with rust to mahogany
markings on the cheeks and muzzle, paws and legs. A red color with brown
markings also exists. There is a deficiency in the hair gene making the coloring
a lighter red.

German Rottweiler vs. American Rottweiler - some claim there are variations
of Rotties, the German Rottweiler and the American Rottweiler. German
Rotties are said to be shorter, stockier and have a bigger blockier head, and
American Rotties are said to be taller and leggier without as blocky a head.

Others claim a Rottweiler is a Rottweiler and there is no such thing as a
German Rottie. Some who have stated this argument have said, "a German
Rottweiler is one born in Germany and an American Rottweiler is born in
America." In any case, there are breeders breeding for the German Rottweiler
look, which goes outside the AKC standard, while others are breeding for the
American Rottweiler look, sticking to, or closer to, the AKC standard.

Temperament
                                              The Rottie is powerful, calm,
                                              trainable, courageous, and
                                              devoted to their owner and
                                              family. Loyal and protective, they
                                              will defend their family fiercely if
                                              needed, seemingly immune to
                                              pain. Serious, even-tempered,
                                              brave, confident and courageous,
                                              this breed needs an owner who is
                                              strong minded, calm, but firm and
                                              able to handle their massive size.
A docile, natural guard dog with a laid-back, reliable temperament.

They are highly intelligent and have proven their worth beyond question in
police, military, and customs work over many centuries and can be trained for
competitive obedience.

Because of their size, training should begin when the dog is a small puppy. This
breed needs a lot of leadership and socialization. They will not be happy
confined to a kennel or backyard. The objective in training this dog is to
achieve a pack leader status. It is a natural instinct for a dog to have an order in
their pack.

When we humans live with dogs, we become their pack. The entire pack
cooperates under a single leader. Lines are clearly defined and rules are set.
You and all other humans MUST be higher up in the order than the dog. That is
the only way your relationship can be a success.

When the Rottweiler receives consistent leadership and is trained, it will be a
good playmate for the children. It will accept cats, other dogs, and other
household pets, as long as the dog has been socialized well and have owners
who assert their authority over the dog.

Friends and relatives of the family are normally enthusiastically welcomed.
Strangers to whom the dog senses bad intentions from can get no further than
the sidewalk.

            CHAPTER II : How to Train Rottweiler on Daily Basis


Rottweiler is very loyal to the family and very eager to please the owner,
therefore Rottweiler is a perfect guarding dog. Given a herding mental, this
dog is prone to be a dominance aggressive dog, this is why you have to became
more dominance and standup as a pack leader for him. As I already mention
before, Rottweiler is a very smart breed and respond very well to obedience
training. You need to give a full dedication to train this dog and give him a
consistence daily exercise and socialization.

Remember that your goal is not to let the “breed mode” take over your dog
instead you are nurturing the “dog mode” which is more balance and easier to
train. The "breed mode" can lead your Rottweiler to aggression, barking or
even biting problems that everyone don't want to get from this breed. Below
are the daily needs that you should give your Rottweiler to keep him from
entering the “breed mode”

Exercise
Daily exercise is a must for every dog to drain the energy and keep the “breed
mode” low. Being a working dog, Rottweiler is given with a very strong body,
high stamina and agility to allow them to do any kind of work assignment like
guarding, herding or being a blind person guide. That is why you need to give
this dog a minimum 30 minutes walk or jog to keep them in a low energy. This
dog is also like to play ball fetching as an exercise. Just make sure he gets a lot
of outdoor activity and meeting other dog.

Discipline
Never let your dog become out of control everywhere. You must become a
firm a strong leader that your dog can trust and willing to listen. Give him a
clear boundary and limitation inside and outside the house. Rottweiler is very
smart, so it won’t take long to make them understand which is allowed and
which is not.

Affection
Every time your Rottweiler accomplishes training, give him affection by
praising him or treat him with a snack. Rottweiler respond really well when
using a food as a reward.

                      CHAPTER III : Pit Bull Training Tips




To make your Rottweiler a perfect companion for you and your family, you
should pay attention to these tips below:

   1. Owner with a strong leadership is a must. Rottweiler bred to lead a herd,
      so they tend to make more effort to take control, so only owner with a
      strong and firm leadership can lead this dog. So make sure you train
      your leadership as a priority.
   2. Start socialization with human and other dog from puppy. Train your
      Rottweiler to get use to be around human especially your friend and
      family. Also teach your friend and family to not be afraid of the
      Rottweiler since this dog can sense fear and fear can trigger their
      behavior if not socialized properly.
   3. Start obedience train from puppy. Rottweiler can be a great companion
      only if they obey the owner properly. Naughty Rotty is a big NO NO!
   4. Make your Rottweiler work before giving the food. For example you can
      command your dog to sit or any other tricks. You must also wait until he
      calms down before putting down the bowl to prevent food aggression.
   5. Teach your dog to bark and quiet on command. This is really useful to
      control your Rottweiler as a guard dog.

             CHAPTER IV : Conclusion And Recommendation

                                   By giving your Rottweiler the daily training,
                                   you can expect to have a perfect
                                   companion dog which has a high loyalty
                                   and also a high intelligence beside you. It is
                                   advisable to give your Rottweiler the
                                   exercise, discipline and affection on daily
                                   basis to prevent him from entering the
                                   “breed mode”. However, if you have a
                                   problematic Rottweiler I highly suggest you
to get a comprehensive dog training guide or take your dog to a professional
dog trainer to prevent the behavior from getting worse.

To get to know and to be able to train your Rottweiler better, I highly suggest
you to get a copy of Daniel Steven’s “Secrets to Dog Training”. As one who
already has a copy of this book, I would never doubt that this book is one of
the “must have” for any dog owner. Not just a book, but you will also get a
bunch of bonus and specially a direct access to the professional team behind
this book to help you personally with any behavior problem you encounter
