The Rottweiler can grow into a big and a powerful dog; there is no question about it. But is it really good for anyone to have a Rottweiler? Let us go over the facts. The Rottweiler can be an absolutely adorable and playful dog that utterly adores his family. Males can be a bit difficult to control but all in all your kids will love him and you will to. They are very intelligent and a Rottweiler can become an excellent working dog. It can be employed in many different types of terrain work. They can even be guides to blind people or used to sniff out drugs of explosives regardless of the fact that that position is usually reserved for much smaller dogs. The Rottweiler is a great friend and a true life companion. It has a pretty long life span and will be with you for a long time.
On the other hand, you should know that the Rottweiler is very powerful and can be a very dangerous dog and this is why it requires a firm hand to guide it and train it. It’s not a breed for the weak or for rookies since if not properly trained it can show some or many of its negative traits. But if you are a firm guide with a clear agenda and a plan the Rottweiler will appear like a big baby to you since they get incredibly attached to its master and his or her family. If you are considering purchasing a Rottweiler you should really think about going through obedience training and socialization exercises with it, since they can be pretty unpredictable when around other dogs. And because the Rottweiler has a pretty dangerous bite, it can be unpleasant to say at least.
And this is where we come to our problem. The Rottweiler is a great guard god and an even better attack dog. It’s in his nature. Even though it was originally breed to serve as a sheep dog in Germany, The Rottweiler still has a bit of violence left in him. The extreme personality of this dog will either make it a big baby that likes to play with everybody or it will make it into an efficient guard god. And that can be potentially dangerous for all the people in your life. If the urge to protect its owner prevails over its cheerful personality the dog will start to see everybody as a danger. Sometimes it even happens that the Rottweiler attacks without command. But these cases are extremely rare and such dogs are usually victims of animal cruelty or severe neglect.
In conclusion, Rottweilers are the kind of dogs that require a strict but loving and caring owner and if they don’t have one, they can sometimes develop a somewhat wild character. The potential risk of having a Rottweiler is its stubbornness and the constant desire to enforce its own will. It needs to respect its owner and to fear him a bit or it will start to consider itself as an equal and that is something you can never let happen because it can never be trusted again after that. This is the reason why some Rottweilers are put to sleep after having bitten somebody.
