The Rottweiler comes down from the Asian mastiff family.
In the town of Rottweil; southern Germany they were used to drive stock to and from market and the farmers also used them to guard the property. At one stage they were known as butcher dogs, as they were used to haul carts for the butchers and cattle dealers.
Nowadays, these dogs are used by the police and by the army for defense purposes.
With firm but not harsh training from an early age these dogs make loyal loving companions. They are highly intelligent, and not a dog that enjoys being locked away, they would much rather be with and around their family.

Grooming- the short coat is easy to look after, wash when needed and brush now and then.

Exercise- they love to work or exercise, they thrive on it, so make sure you can give them plenty of time to keep them active and happy.

Health- This breed is generally sound but some can suffer from hip and elbow dysplasia, and some eyes problems. For Diet and other general dog health information Health/Nutrition
