Once known as “The Butcher’s Dog of Rottweill”, after a butcher’s dog who guarded his money and herded cattle on route to auction, this strong, trustworthy breed originated in the area of Wurttemburg, Germany. The descendants of the Rottweiler breed can be traced back to dogs that were left behind to guard outposts for the Roman Army on it’s march across Europe. The Rottweiler is a devoted family and protection dog, and excels in police work as well as obedience training, which should be started while the Rottweiler puppy is very young. Rottweilers require regular, thorough brushing and need plenty of outdoor exercise.
