ROTTWEILERS

The misconception that Rottweilers were "killer dogs" , "something to be frightened about" without rhyme or reason gave us yet one more challenge to breed these magnificent dogs which were fearless and yet ever so gentle with proper upbringing and rearing.

Yashbans went to prove this.

"As I go down the lane of nostalgia, I remember how I was introduced to this lovely breed. I had gone to the U.K. sometime in the year 1989 and one day I spotted a large, extremely handsome dog, black with mahogany markings, rippling with muscles sitting in the front seat of the car, waiting for his owner to come out of the Mall. He was a picture of beauty. I had not seen a Rottweiler in real life until then, and completely mesmerized by this amazing dog, I went closer and placing my hand on the handle of the door I looked at him closely. He was on guard command, I think, and suddenly, barring his teeth and squinting his eyes giving me that deadly, fiercesome look, he gave a deep throated growl, warning me first to stay away. If I had not been quick enough to retrace my steps, I am sure he would have definitely bitten my head off. My admiration for this breed only increased after this incident. What an amazing guard dog!

Around this time, I also read in the social media that these dogs had become “killers” and that some organisations in the U.K. were even paying 300 pounds to owners who were willing to put down their dogs. I firmly believed that it is not the dogs that were at fault, and it was only because of the incorrect training and bad upbringing that these dogs must have become overly aggressive. So it became a challenge for me to breed Rottweilers that were totally safe, even with newborn children. 

It was also my ambition and dream at this time to become an All breeds Judge and I felt it was absolutely necessary to own and breed as many breeds as possible to have a first hand knowledge of any particular breed’s temperament and conformation. And so my journey to breed some outstanding Rottweilers, true to their type and temperament, began.

I must have probably been the first person in India to bring in Rottweilers from abroad as early as 1990. "

Is the Rottweiler a breed for anyone and everyone?

As a Breeder of  large dogs, medium dogs and toy dogs for over 35 years now, I try to analyze what type of breeds most men prefer. I have particularly noticed and observed that most Indian men, however small is size he is as a person, he desires to always own the most powerful of all dogs, i.e. the Rottweiler, known for its macho image. However, contrary to this, I have very often seen powerful looking, hugely built bikers and really large men in the West owning small pocket sized dogs like the very popular, Miniature Pinschers. This amuses me and wonder why. Are we trying to exhibit indirectly our real inner feelings by the type of pets we choose to own?

When somebody talks about a Rottweiler, the first thing that comes to our mind is a breed with the demonic look and qualities that he has been portrayed in the movie "Omen".  However, if somebody were to wish for a breed befitting a typical guard dog, the only breed that comes to our minds is the Rottweiler again.

What is the Rottweiler really like? how many of us have really had to opportunity to study and understand this wonderful breed? Is he really that ferocious, powerful maniac that people make him out to be or is a really an amazing, loyal companion with the guarding instincts to protect you with his life? 

I personally have had the opportunity to study many breeds of working dogs like the Rottweilers, Boxers, Dobermans, St. Bernards, Great Danes etc, including the German Shepherd dogs, which I am going to include as a working dog and the breed that I would personally vouch for as the No.1 working dog is the Rottweiler.

The Rottweiler is a robust, extremely powerful dog, highly intelligent with the wonderful qualities of devotion, loyalty, love and quick learning. He is magnificent guard dog and a wonderful and delightful companion to have and own. 

He was bred as a drover dog in the middle ages and used for herding cattle and sheep and this developed his personality as a possessive dog who would not any allow any harm happen to anyone dear to him.  During the Industrial revolution, the necessity for this breed as a herding dog diminished but soon he adapted himself to the role of being a "butcher's dog' bringing back his owner's money safely back to his home inspire of any threats he might face on the way.  He was the ideal guard dog now.

However, this possessive trait in him is also one of his drawbacks.  His possessiveness towards his owner/family does not allow him to tolerate other  breeds of dogs, sometimes even his own type, when it comes to sharing his love. He needs a owner who can handle him firmly or else he can go haywire because of man's inabilities to understand him.

The Rottweiler is an extremely sensitive dog and will not take constant reprimanding lightly.  He will remember your harsh tone or rough attitude all his life and wait for the opportunity when you will make that mistake of aggressive towards him and he will use all his pent up anger against you.

The Rottweiler is a powerfully built dog and sometimes does not know his own strength.  If by change you or your child gets knocked down by him, what starts off as rough playing will soon give him the opportunity to consider you as a prey and make him dominantly aggressive.  You must ensure you have a firm voice and enough strength to ward him off.  Unfortunately, if this is not possible, your child could bear the brunt of your choice of pet for your family.

You have to really understand this highly intelligent, magnificently strong breed thoroughly before you decide to bring him home.  Remember, he is not like every other breed and needs an equally strong person to handle him.  He is no way a meek or submissive dog. If you do not have the time or the firmness or the space or the facility to feed him the right quantities of food that keeps him satiated, then please do not opt for this breed.  The breed is not the mistake. You are.

How to Choose a Rottweiler Puppy

  

Now that you have decided to take a lovely Rottweiler puppy home, here are some tips that you should follow to make sure that your choice of the breed and the puppy is the right one. Remember the puppy you are going to take home is not only for you, but for the entire family. 

First and foremost, make sure that you have understood the characteristics of the Rottweiler as a breed and that he is the right breed for you.  He might look small and cuddly as a puppy, but remember when he grows up, he is going to be a very strong and powerful dog.  Do you and your family have the strength and the firmness of tone to rear a dog as powerful as the Rottweiler?

Read about this breed, talk to reputed Breeders and discuss with fellow Rottweiler owners and make sure you have made the right choice.  Remember, once the puppy comes home, he is going to be a part of your family for the next 13 years and you cannot decide to do away with him at a later stage in his life when you cannot handle him. He is your baby forever.

Never compromise on the Breeder.  Make sure the person you wish to buy the puppy from is a Breeder of repute and who is willing to guide you on the upbringing of the puppy all through its life.

Then, make sure you see both the parents of the puppy.  Check their physique for any physical deformity or disability and their temperaments.  Are they unusually ferocious or nervous without any reason?  Then, look at their pedigrees.  If you cannot understand the lineage, ask the Breeder to explain it to you.  Make sure the parents are not closely inbred, as this could give rise to genetic problems in the offspring’s at some stage in its life. Never buy a puppy from an advertisement posted on the internet, without proper investigation.

The Rottweiler is a powerfully built dog, very harmonious in proportions.  He is large but balanced in every way.  There should be no exaggerations of any kind.

Make sure the puppy is healthy and has a gleaming coat and bright eyes.  The Rottweiler comes only in Black and tan or mahogany markings and there are no color variations.

Ensure that he has a typical head, not oversized or too small, a good strong muzzle and a correct scissors bite. Check if his pasterns are firm, his topline straight and he is not cow hocked.  Also, if it is a male puppy, he must have both his testicles descended in his scrotum. However, remember small imperfections can always be corrected with correct feeding and maintenance and upbringing, but a puppy bred from bad tempered parents must be avoided at all costs.  It is vey difficult to correct this feature if it is in his genes.

If you keep all this in mind, you will definitely be the proud owner of one of the finest breeds human beings have been fortunate enough to come across with.
