Well, now folks... I would like to talk about Rotties - the Rottweilers. I have seen people are usually scared of some names; worth mentioning of them are Dobermann, Rottweilers, Pit bull terriers and even sometimes German Shepherds. Many people have wrong notions about some dog, thereby stigmatizing the breed. Rotties have been stigmatized by many around me.

Rottweiler is a noble breed with imposing appearance and amazing protective instincts. His natural guarding instincts have made it a prized guard dog for years. Rottweilers' inherent nature is that of a courageous protector and incredibly devoted to its pack members - his family, which makes him quite aggressive towards strangers. Distinct behavioral differences is noticed in both the genders. While Males usually attack a perceived intruder with a voluminous growling bark without even a prior warning, females usually tend to bark and warn. This typical nature of Rottweilers makes people think that these dogs are stoic and and indifferent to joy and grief. Wrong notion! I am sure the Rottweiler owners will stand against this incorrect conception Rottweilers can be magical companion, if trained properly. Responsible owners would always prefer starting off the training session for their Rottweilers at the right age.

General Appearance

Ideally Rottweiler is a medium large dog with compact and substantial built and an imposing look, altogether giving an impression of massive innate strength and endurance. Glossy black coat with prominent mahogany or rust markings gives their look a distinctive touch. Males are characteristically more massively build and structurally larger with heavier bones compared to females. The distinctly feminine appearance of females set them apart from males as far the look is concerned. The medium long head that is broad enough between the ears, moderately arched forehead line, well developed stop adds to the dog's facial profile, with the backskull to muzzle ratio being 3 : 2. Slight wrinkles in forehead of an alert dog gives his look a special touch.

Expression

The medium sized almond eyes with the rust marked melon pip right above add beauty to the alert, noble and self-assured expression of Rottweiliers. Powerful, well muscled, slightly arched, moderately long neck, firm level back, well sprung, oval ribs, broad croup, slight tuck-up underline, strongly developed, straight and heavy boned legs give an indication of incredible strength along with a dramatically spirited look.

The stifle joint is well curved and the hind quarter angulations are proportionately balanced with the fore quarters and rest of the body. When stacked the rear pastern stands right perpendicular to the ground, wide enough apart to fit perfectly with a well built structure. Rear feet are a bit longer than the front feet and all the four pads are quite thicker, harder and larger compared to many of the other large dog breeds. The strong built rear portions helps the dog to deliver powerful rear propulsion that benefits in strong fore-reach with maximum coverage of grounds while trotting. The overall structure makes the dog a good trotting companion of his owner. The unhindered, harmonious gait of a well proportioned Rottweiler makes many people fall in love with the breed. Tails have been traditionally docked, but due to the banning of tail docking in many countries Rottweilers with un-docked tail are seen in most of the dog shows around the world.

Proportion

Dogs ranges between 24 inches and 27 inches high at the wither; females ranges between 22 inches and 25 inches. Correct proportion requires that the Height : Length should be 9 : 10, which means they shoould be slightly longer compared to height, neither being coarse, nor shelly. Rottweilers are deep chested breed and the Depth of chest measures around 50% of the dog's height at wither.

Temperament

Rottweilers are by nature calm with self-assured, confident and courageous disposition. He doesn't lend himself to immediate friendship at the first meeting. Being an inherently protection dog, Rottweilers tend to be quite possessive about their territory and pack members. His intelligence, ability to adopt itself in extreme hardness and strong desire to work, makes him best suited member as a general all-purpose dog - especially as a companion and guardian dog. Rottweilers in the hand of a novice owner can be a nightmare, while with a responsible owner can be a award winning specimen. Although aggressive attitude towards other dogs and strangers are not faults, yet in a show ring if a dog attacks any person or the judge may be disqualified.
