They’re incredibly devoted, loyal, loving, intelligent, and protective. They make a wonderful addition to the family and they can be playful when they want to. Their docile nature paired with that astounding intelligence makes them an easy dog breed to house train.
They are calm, quiet dogs. Rottweilers are not a vocal breed; indeed, many owners rarely hear their Rottweiler bark. They bark if there’s a reason to bark, but generally respond quietly to their environment.
Not recommended for first-time owners, the rottweiler needs extensive and continuous socialization to be a good family companion. However, this intelligent, confident dog is easy to keep in spite of the size.
According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), dogs typically live between 8-15 years. The Rottweiler life expectancy of 9-10 years is on the lower end of this range primarily because of its large size. But other factors can also affect the Rottweiler lifespan, including the dog’s gender and breeding.
On average, Rottweilers weigh 75 to 110 pounds, with some weighing up to 135 pounds. They typically stand 22 to 27 inches at the shoulder.
In fact, Rottweilers are considered one of the most intelligent breeds you can get. From nearly all aspects, Rotties dominate the competition in terms of intelligence, allowing it to be ranked as the 9th most intelligent breed.
Rottweilers, also known affectionately as Rotties, are one of the most popular dogs in the United States. They are well known to be powerful, protective, and loyal, famous for their instinct for guarding. But Rottweilers are also easily trained, making them loyal, loving, and confident guardians.

Once used in southern Germany as a cattle dog, the Rottweiler has acquired an unfortunate image as a vicious guard dog and an intimidating status symbol. However, despite the breed’s great strength, impressive swagger, and easily aroused protective responses, the Rottweiler is not naturally ill-tempered. With thoughtful training from a firm and experienced owner, who is alert to potential triggers of aggression, this dog makes a calm and obedient companion. Rottweilers are more agile than their size and sturdy build might suggest, and appreciate plenty of vigorous exercise.
This Mastiff-type breed is thought to originate from the large drover dogs of Rome. The name of the breed derives from the German “das Rote Wil”, a name meaning “the red tile”, a reference to a building tile used in Roman structures which in addition to the Rottweiler dogs, were left behind in Germany. In the town named Rottweil, the breed thrived until cattle droving was outlawed. In the late 1800s there were few dogs left to represent the breed. Early in the 1900s breed resurgence was correlated with their new use as a police dog. The first stud book was put together in 1924. The first AKC studbook entry occurred in 1931.
These willing, dependable herding and guarding dogs were used by the Roman armies during their extensive war campaigns. Endurance, sure-footedness, strength and willingness to work characterized these dogs. Today, they are valued as companion dogs and police dogs.
Height at Withers: female 22-25” (56-63.5 cm), male 24-27” (61-68.5 cm).
Weight: females 80-100 lb (36.5-45.5 kg), males 95-135 lb (43-61.5 kg).
Coat: There is only one coat color for the breed; black with rust marking. The inner coat is found on neck and the thighs, the outer coat lies down close to the skin and is hard and glossy. It is a dense coat, of medium to short length, with straight hairs.
Longevity: 12 years
Points of Conformation: Robust, compact constitution and black coloration with standard well-demarcated tan (rust to mahogany) markings characterize this breed. Males are distinctly more massive than females. This breed also has a characteristic long, swinging trot. The skull is very broad and somewhat arched between the ears, the head is large with heavy broad jaws, and the stop well defined. The eyes are dark brown, medium-sized, moderately deep set, and almond shaped. Ears are triangular, pendant and moderately sized so that the tips lie against the masseter muscle. The black nose is large and the lips are black. The neck is moderately short in length, well muscled and slightly arched without throatiness. The topline is level. The thorax is deep and broad, and the ribs well sprung. Slight tuck up in the abdomen is standard. In North America, the tail is normally closely docked. The tail is carried slightly above horizontal while moving. Limbs are straight and heavily boned. Feet are compact, and round with well-arched toes. Dewclaws may be removed. Nails are black and the pads are thick and tough.
Reported breed traits include: Intensely developed guarding instinct, protective of family and home, high intelligence with aloof, self-assured attitude, calm, though some lines have tendencies to aggressiveness or shyness. Regular grooming needs and moderate tendency to shed characterize this breed. Moderate exercise needs. Good for country or city. Moderate barking tendency, and a low digging tendency unless bored. They possess a mild tendency to drool. Slow to mature. Early and thorough socialization and obedience training is essential. High trainability is notable. Males are more likely to exhibit dominance or inter-male aggression. Need mental stimulation and close human contact to prevent boredom vices. Recommended for an experienced dog owner. Tolerance towards children is variable. Some do not recommend the breed for homes with toddlers or for the elderly or infirm. One reason is that the breed tends to “bump”, a behavior left over from the drover days, when the dog would use a body check to move livestock. A full-grown dog can knock even an adult down. Tend to obesity. If let off leash, should be in a securely fenced enclosure (6’ recommended). Tolerates cold weather but not heat.
