I want a rottweiler but…..?
Does anyone know much about rottweilers (the ups and downs) from EXPERIENCE? I am 21 yrs old and am fond of this breed. I am a Junior in college and live in my own house but don’t plan on actually getting the dog in college but want one sometime soon. When is the best time to own a dog? a rottweiler to be specific…
Certainly do have experience in this breed. I “work” in rottie rescue in the uk and have owned them for 20yrs.
Although age isn’t actually important – stability is, and at 21 are you going to be around enough during the day to be with it. They are not a dog that does well left for long hours alone. Are you going to be changing your circumstances like marriage / family in the next few years etc.
Hard as it is — I think the no. 1 thing to ever think about is the dog and not yourself.
Can you for sure give a rottie 10 yrs of love, training and companionship. Are you prepared to go to training, join rottie groups to ask questions etc. Rotties like to work in some way, and they most definitely need a fair, firm leader.
We get so many people phoning wanting to hand a rottie into rescue when really all that would be needed is an understanding of rotties requirements. Sometimes then we can work with
the people and keep the dog in its home.
If you are going to be out at work all day then I would say no.
