The Rottweiler is a highly recognisable dog and much loved by UK dog owners. It is also called simply a Rott or a Rottie.
The rottweiler often lives between 8 - 10 years.
The rottweiler tends to cost in the region of £900 (around £600 for a non-KC registered variety), so if you see rottweiler puppies for sale in a newspaper or online do keep this price in mind.
A rottweiler is usually around 63cm in height and generally weighs in at around 48kg.
Rottweilers are easy to train with an exceptionally high intelligence, are reasonably good with children and require an enormous amount of exercise to stay satisfied. They can tolerate being alone for moderate periods of time.
Every dog while in a public place should wear a collar with the name and address of the owner inscribed on the collar or on a plate or badge attached to it.
