Bad press and Rottweilers seem to go hand in hand now a days but I, like most intelligent people, will understand it is easier for the press to blame the dog rather than the Master. This is how racism, sexism and many other ‘ism’s’ can come into being, through bad press.
Rottweilers are and will always do what Rottweilers do.

The only thing you need to worry about if you come across a Rottweiler at their home, is. Were you invited or not? Many of the purported Rottweiler dog attacks are inevitably from cross bred dogs that, although they may resemble Rottweilers in looks but these dog attacks are so serious that they should be reported accurately.

* Rottweilers can be easily trained
* Rottweilers give more love than they could ever receive back
* Rottweilers love children if reared with them
* Rottweilers with conscientious owners become great dogs
* Rottweilers naturally want to be friends with friendly people
* Rottweilers raised sociably will be sociable
* Rottweilers are actors, defence dogs, family pets, show dogs and the best dog in the world. (In my honest opinion).

What I have found, especially with Rottweilers that I have come in contact with over the years, is when you meet a strange Rottweiler, ( this probably would apply to any other dog as well ), it is best to totally IGNORE them as if you do not even see them until they come to/approach you. Even then do not reach at them or to try and simply pat them, the Rottweiler can mistake this approach as an attack on them so wait until they show you they want a pat. It is not uncommon for this newly met, strange Rottweiler to shortly be at your side pushing it’s muzzle into your hand demanding a pat from you in a very friendly manner.

It is probably common knowledge that when we start to build a house we start with good, strong foundations and so it is also with Rottweiler dog breeding. Understanding this is very important. It is important to know where your dogs came from, their ancestors achievement’s which can give some indication of your puppies potential. Our Brood bitch has very impressive ancestors being related to a CRUFTS show winner is extremely rare with any breed of dog. For this reason we feel we must mention this connection and how it further strengthens our puppies breeding stock.

Never, never, never ever buy a Rottweiler without first understanding the breed and understanding if you can fulfill their needs first before assessing whether they can look after yours. Owning a Rottweiler can be a great family experience and once you take your Rottweiler on a walk or to a dog show or even just spending time with them you will see how much fun this breed can be as they become a part of your family. Do not forget to keep your Rottweiler puppy insured because it is better to guard against future unknowns.

Due to the DogsNZ Club not standing with docked tail breeds here in New Zealand I will no longer be breeding ‘Papered’ Rottweilers. Instead I will breed only the best dogs I know how to breed using my Pedigree bitch and excellently sourced purebred Rottweiler studs. I would still be breeding pedigree dogs if DogsNZ was on the side of dog breeders, and in my opinion it is not. No need to take just my opinion, ask any one of the traditionally docked breed owners:

This was the standard at date shown on their site:

N.Z.K.C. Official Breed Standard
Excerpt. Rottweiler Breed Standard:

Tail: Carried horizontally. It is short, strong and not set too low. customarily docked at the first joint.
Tail: Carried horizontally. It is short, strong and not set too low.
“Docked at the first joint.” (Still showing as at 11/25/2018)

Why stand with anti tail dockers and have the Rottweiler standard still agreeing docked tails is the Official Breed Standard? I would love to hear…
