The Rottweiler is first and foremost one of the oldest, if not the oldest, of herding breeds. The Rottweiler is a large size, heavy boned dog with abundant strength. Rottweilers are very intelligent dogs with a willingness to perform any type of work or service. The Rottweiler is self confident and will respond instantly to any confrontation before them. Rottweilers are used by police and military and make exceptional protection dogs. A common misconception about Rottweilers is their extreme aggressiveness and tendency towards unprovoked confrontation. While they have been on trial many times, it is an unfortunate, and undeserved reputation. Rottweiler’s- when treated well and trained properly, are extremely loving, obedient dogs.
