Rottweiler Grooming: Everything You Need To Know

Jun 12, 2008
Whether you are interested in getting a Rottweiler or already have one, they make a great pet. Rottweilers are a really fantastic breed and not only are they incredibly loyal and great watchdogs, but beautiful as well. Your Rottweiler loves you and you should offer it the same care and affection back. This means performing proper and regular Rottweiler grooming, which includes their fur, nails and teeth.

The good thing is that Rottweiler grooming is relatively easy, especially when compared to the grooming of other breeds. Rottweilers have quite a short coat, and although brushing is important you will not want to brush them too frequently or you may cause some balding.

Brushing is easily one of the most important steps in the Rottweiler grooming process, and not only does it help to give them a shiny healthy coat but also helps them to relax and feel happy. You should always make sure to brush more often during the shedding season, as this will also help to keep dog hair off your clothing and furniture.

There are also other things to worry about when it comes to Rottweiler grooming. Teeth and nails for instance, which tend to be the parts of a Rottweiler's daily grooming that most owners neglect. The best way to maintain your Rottweiler's nails is to make sure they get outside and get walked regularly, as this will help keep their nails short and strong. You also want to clip their nails regularly, to help avoid ingrown toenails and toe disease.

Remember that with the Rottweiler breed in particular, it is very important to begin the grooming routines as early on in their life as possible. This is largely due to the fact that they tend to become very large and powerful and so if you just start trying to groom them out of nowhere you may have some difficulties. Also, when it comes to choosing a shampoo to use on their coat you should never use any sort of a medicated shampoo unless, of course, you are instructed to do so by your veterinarian.

In general, Rottweilers require very little maintenance, especially when compared to other breeds of dogs. There are however, still many things that need to be done in terms of grooming your Rottweiler in order to ensure that they feel and look as good as possible. It is important that you start grooming your dog when it is a puppy, as this way it will become accustomed and comfortable with bathing, and will actually enjoy it in the future.

If you want your dog to have the longest life expectancy, and all loving pet owners do, then grooming is going to be an essential part of this. It will help your dog to feel happy and energetic, and affect other areas of their behavior as well.

Believe it or not, one of the most important reasons you should groom your dog is because it will help their physical state of mind. It will affect how they feel as well as the way they act, so it is important that you take it seriously and keep up with it as well.
