Rottpeake History

The Rottweiler is a giant and robust herding and guard-dog originating in Rottweil, Germany. The Rottweiler is a medium to large-sized working dog, with males and females measuring 61 to 75 centimetres (24 to 30 in) and 55 to 70 centimetres (22 to 27 in) in height, respectively. The Rottweiler is a robust and powerful-looking animal. It has a short, smooth-haired, rust-coloured coat, and a distinctive head with a smooth, black face mask. The Rottweiler was first recognised in 1899, and standardised by 1913. It is believed to be descended from the now-extinct Molossus, which was used by the Roman legions. Today, the Rottweiler is one of the 11 most popular pedigreed dogs in the United Kingdom, and the second most registered purebred breed of the German Kennel Club. The FCI recognises two varieties of the Rottweiler, the shorthaired (Rottweiler Metzgerhund) and the long haired (Rottweiler affenpinscher Metzgerhund).

Rottpeake Temperament and Behaviour

They are also known for their high prey drive, and may try to chase or kill small animals. They can make excellent working dogs and are good at performing search and rescue missions.

Rottpeake Activity Requirements

Rottweilers are intelligent, protective, and loyal. They are large, powerful, and fearless, making them ideal guard dogs and police dogs. However, they are also great companion dogs. Like most large, strong breeds, Rottweilers do best with at least an hour of rigorous, daily exercise. They have a lot of energy, and they need a way to release that energy. Walks, runs, and hikes are all good ways to make sure your Rottweiler stays healthy and fit. If you are looking for a Rottweiler, be sure you are able to meet their exercise and grooming needs. These dogs are highly intelligent and can be very independent. They need an owner who will make them a priority and who will be able to keep up with their high energy levels.
