Dog Breed Facts

This stunning working dog is a popular choice of dog around the globe. Known for their unconditional love and loyalty to their owners and family. The Rottweiler (also known as a Rotty) is fun and obedient breed that simply adores human affection, and family environments.

The origin for this dog is said to be Germany, and it is believed that the breed was developed from Roman cattle dogs that accompanied cattle herds towards Germany. As they were required to control large boisterous cattle-beasts the dogs were bred to be strong and sturdy. When cattle herding was prohibited by law the breed was used by butchers to pull little carts, however numbers declined rapidly when the Rottweiler was no longer required as a heavy working dog. Luckily a club was formed in Germany, which was devoted to protecting the purity of the breed.

Today that hardworking nature and need to please is still evident and it’s no wonder the breed is still seen working in very important roles such as Police dogs and Customs dogs. In some countries they are also used as rescue dogs and border guards.

This breed is very devoted to those who love them. A guarding strong dog that will require training and understanding from a very early age. They respond to firm yet positive training methods and excel in all forms of obedience training –that should commence from early puppyhood.

"Seriously impressed with the impact this food has had on our 2 furbabies!! We have 2 dogs, 1 that always seemed to be hungry no matter how much food he got and another with skin allergies... now Mr gutso is satisfied with a serving size that's recommended for his breed and size and our other dog has significantly reduced the frequency of her itching 🥰 10/10 stars if I could and glad to be a part of the Pet Food Australia community 🥳"
