With their broad shoulders and muscular frames, the Rottweiler is a large breed of dog that has undeservedly earned a reputation for being scary, intimidating, and aggressive. However, they can actually be incredibly goofy and friendly, acting more like clowns than protectors. There is no doubt that they can make great guard dogs, but proper training and socialization also can make them a perfect family dog who will get along with everyone they meet.
The Rottweiler history goes back thousands of years, evolving from Mastiffs who worked with the Romans. They have been working alongside people for their known history, working as fighters, herders, and protectors. Today, the breed is utilized in work with military personnel, police, and security experts. At first glance, a well trained Rottie can be an intimidating sight, due to their size, muscle mass, and serious expression.
This guide will walk you through the ins and outs of owning this phenomenal breed. Whether you're someone playing with the idea of getting a Rottie, or have already embarked on your journey with your pup, this guide will offer an insight into how to create a happy and fulfilling life for you and your Rottweiler.

What their reputation often overlooks is just how much personality Rottweilers have. They can be great guardians, but the vast majority of the time, they are goofy pups that consider themselves lap dogs. It’s not unusual for a full sized Rottie to try to flop down on top of your lap while you sit on the couch, or to dance at your feet begging for you to run around outside with them. They love to play and are very trainable, simply because that training means spending more time with you. This wonderful, loving, and affectionate breed can be the perfect addition to the right home.
