04 Rottweiler: Characteristics and Temperament

The Rottweiler is a medium-large, powerful dog. His compact and
substantial build denotes great strength, agility and endurance. On
average, males will range from 95 to 135 lbs and 24" to 27" at the
shoulder. They are more massive throughout with larger frame and
heavier bone than bitches. Bitches will range from 80 to 100 lbs and
from 22" to 25" at the shoulder. Animals can be found which are taller
or shorter than these measurements, however, they are not considered
typical by the breed standard. The Rottweiler is ALWAYS black, with
clearly defined markings on cheeks, muzzle, chest and legs as well as
over both eyes, that range from tan to deep mahogany. His coat is
straight, coarse and of medium length, with an undercoat varying in
degree based on climatic conditions. The Rottweiler is a calm and
self-confident dog, who has an inherent desire to protect home and
family. Personality may range from highly affectionate to extremely
aloof. He is not shy nor highly excitable. He is an intelligent and
highly trainable dog. He is also very much a companion, often
following their family members from room to room in the home. Because
of his size and strength, it is imperative that he receive proper
socialization and obedience training from an early age. Nervous, shy,
excitable or hyperactive individuals are exhibiting traits which are
undesirable in an animal the size and strength of the Rottweiler and
should be avoided.
