Description: The Rottweiler is a medium-large, robust, powerful dog. Their build denotes great strength, agility and endurance. They are rather thickly built, with more muscular than lean features. The Rottweiler is a working dog, they are the happiest when there is a job to do whether it is herding, competing in obedience, tracking, search and rescue or retrieving the newspaper. They are an effective guard dog, but need firm handling and proper training. They are naturally very dominant animals, and need to be corrected even into their adulthood as to who is boss. Rottweilers will defend their family and property to the end, but do have a tendency to become loyal to one person. An inexperienced owner should not consider owning a Rottweiler.
