Necessary Rottweiler Care

Sep 4, 2008
The Rottweiler is a breed of dog that is very large, stocky, muscular, and powerful. They are typically quite calm and even-tempered, and are usually very versatile as well. When well trained they can do almost anything, and most Rottweilers are easy to train, especially if you get one when it is still a young puppy.

If you want to keep your dog looking and feeling at their very best however, then proper Rottweiler care is going to be necessary. This means taking proper care of their coat, which should be brushed at least twice a week with a soft bristle brush. Their teeth should also be cleaned on a regular basis, and their nails should be trimmed every two to three weeks. A good idea is to get them outdoors and walk them as often as you can, as this will keep their nails short and strong.

Vaccinations are a very important part of Rottweiler care. If you have your dog as a puppy you will need to have them vaccinated and then follow up with yearly booster vaccinations in order to maintain their immunity to diseases. Worming is also necessary and should be done at least once every few months.

Even if your dog has never had fleas before, as a part of proper Rottweiler care you should check for fleas and ticks on a regular basis, so that you can spot the problem if it ever does happen, before it gets too out of control.

Training is also considered as being a part of overall Rottweiler care, and this breed is not only highly capable of learning but they actually thrive on training. Even the young Rottweiler puppies have an amazing capacity to learn, and keep in mind that the earlier you start training them, the better off you are going to be.

One issue that is often neglected when it comes to Rottweiler care is illness. Of course proper grooming and good Rottweiler nutrition is important, but you also need to know that Rottweilers are prone to certain health problems, such as hip and elbow dysplasia and Von Willebrand's Disease.

If you are ever not sure about whether your dog is healthy or whether you are taking as best care of them as you could, don't feel shy to talk to your veterinarian. You should be taking your dog in for regular checkups anyway, but speaking to them about particular issues when you are concerned is important also.

Boredom in particular can lead to behavior problems so make sure that you get them out and keep them active. A Rottweiler should be owned be only extremely responsible people, who are willing to offer the care, training and compassion that their dog needs. The owner should also be knowledgeable on the breed and the care that is required.
