When you want to be sure about what it takes as far as good Rottweiler breeding goes, you need to make an assessment of its past such as considering its parents and looking for a good temperament. Of course, every dog will have a fault or two and so you need to be sure that you can live with these faults in your dog, and you may want to also see whether the Rottweiler parents have pedigrees and have participated in competitions which is very important to Rottweiler breeding.
Other considerations that you need to be on the lookout for include American Kennel Club registration papers and also Orthopedic Foundation for Animals certification. Genetic problems present in the Rottweiler, its health history and also that of its parents which should show whether the pup has been wormed and been given its shots.
You also need to see where the mother and her puppies have been living and ensure that the place is dry as well as clean because Rottweilers are essentially family dogs. You also need to ensure that mother and puppies are in good health and that the breeder interacts with mutual love and respect with the Rottweilers. In addition, you also need to find out how many Rottweilers has the breeder raised, and get information about how the pups have been fed, and finally ask for references of previous buyers.
Rottweilers are a lot stronger than they look and so you need to consider their size before you choose one for your pet and also be sure that you know all that there is to know about Rottweiler care. With proper Rottweiler breeding behind them, you will be sure that your new addition to your home will make a good companion and a loyal friend that will form a close association with you for many years to come. Thus, you should be well informed about this breed and carefully consider its mental makeup as well as physical attributes before you make a final decision.
Dog shows are an ideal place where you can view and also find good Rottweilers that have been well bred and since such shows are sure to have many Rottweiler breeders showing off their puppies and dogs, you could make contact with them and thus find a good Rottweiler for yourself. If these Rottweilers are the product of good Rottweiler breeding they will stand about two feet tall and weigh about a hundred pounds though the females will be slightly shorter as well as a bit lighter in weight.
Because Rottweilers have a history of being put to use in the fields in Europe and they are in fact much stronger than you may expect, be prepared for a pet that will be compact in size and very muscular as well. In fact, they are strong enough to cause harm and though they are generally not overly aggressive, older persons for fear of unintended injury should not keep them. There is also great need for proper Rottweiler obedience training so that they will learn to do as they are told to do.
As with most forms of dog breeding, Rottweiler breeding also suffers from the fact that many of the breeders are less than scrupulous about how they breed their Rottweilers and often, have only a profit motive at the back of their minds and thus do not pay enough attention to proper breeding methods. So, if you come across Rottweilers being offered at ridiculously low prices, stay clear of such deals because they will most probably mean that you are being offered ill-bred Rottweilers.
You will also only get a good Rottweiler if it has been taught to socialize, has a good genetic history and also has been conditioned well by the breeder. Thus, you should know the standards for Rottweilers and evaluate more than one breeder before making your choice. You should also look at the dam’s behavior and also of the sire (if he is available) and if the dam is calm and steady and maybe even just a little curious and friendly, then you can be sure that you are getting a well-bred Rottweiler. If on the other hand, she is openly hostile and is not easily reassured by its owner, then you should avoid its puppies.
Rottweilers are very strong and because they can easily intimidate people there have even been calls for stopping Rottweiler breeding. Though these are mainly uncalled for since the breed is not more aggressive than any other, when well trained, and responds well to obedience training and thus not the menace to society that it is being touted as.
