Rottweiler Training

We are Rottweiler training specialists, working with puppies from twelve weeks of age. Rottweilers are considered a medium-large breed of dog, known for their distinct levels of confidence, intellect and loyalty.

They were bred in the town of ‘Rottweil’ in Germany, as far back as 73-74 AD, as livestock herding and bear hunting dogs for the Ancient Romans. During WWI and WWII, Rottweilers were used in a variety of roles, including messenger, ambulance and protection dogs.

In some parts of the world, they are still used for herding livestock but they are most commonly used by the police and search-and-rescue or protection dogs. Rottweiler puppy training is crucial to channel their natural protective instincts and prevent bad habits from forming.

Training options include:

  • Basic Obedience

  • Intermediate/advanced obedience

  • Person protection training

  • Executive protection training

  • What are Rottweilers known for?

    Rottweiler dogs are a large breed of dog that originated in Germany. They are known for their muscular build, intelligence and loyalty. Rottweilers were originally bred for herding and guarding purposes, but now also serve as police and military dogs, as well as family pets.

    We own Rottweilers and have supplied Rottweilers for British Transport Police, Northumbria Police and Hollyoaks the TV series.

    Rottweilers have a strong protective instinct and are loyal to their owners, making them excellent guard dogs. However, it is important to provide proper socialisation and training to ensure that this protective instinct does not lead to aggression towards strangers or other animals. They also require regular exercise and mental stimulation to prevent negative behaviours such as destructiveness or excessive barking.

  • Are Rottweilers healthy dogs?

    Rottweilers are generally healthy dogs, but they are prone to certain health issues such as hip dysplasia and heart conditions. Regular veterinary check-ups are important to maintain their overall health.

  • Do Rottweilers make good companions?

    Overall, Rottweilers are intelligent and loyal breeds that make great companions for the right owner. However, potential owners should be aware of the breed's strong protective instincts and high exercise needs and should provide proper socialisation and training to ensure a well-behaved and healthy dog.

Training for Rottweilers

Rottweiler protection dogs are often the breed of choice because of their strong muscular frame and intimidating stance. They require a calm and stable ‘pack leader’ to keep them from assuming the role themselves, so professional training is essential to assert yourself as a confident and firm handler. Rottweilers are good-natured, powerful and willing to learn new skills, so they make great pets as well as protection or service dogs.

We begin our professional training with regular socialisation in busy public places, to prevent any unwanted aggression or shyness in adulthood. We’ll move onto basic obedience ensuring that they correctly respond to “sit”, “stay”, “down”, recall and food refusal. Once they have mastered the initial commands, we’ll progress onto specialist training suited for their future role.
