Rottweiler Suitability as a family pet.
Given its daunting size and the fact that it is used by police and military in security operations, many people discount the Rottweiler as a suitable family pet. The misinformation about this breed as a family pet is made worse by TV shows and movies. They tend to portray it as an unfriendly predator with the jaws of a cheetah and the temperament of a hungry lion.
However, a Rottweiler can be a perfect family pet when adequately trained and socialized. As mentioned earlier, the dog can be very friendly and loving when well treated and loved.
While the Rottweiler dogs can be aggressive towards other dogs of the same sex, they are usually friendly towards cats. However, this depends on with how well socialized they are.
Rottweiler Exercise needs.
The Rottweiler requires regular exercise and plenty of playing space to remain happy and healthy. Given the need for training and socialization, the breed is best suited for homes with extensive and secure outdoor space. If a Rottweiler gets confined in a home with little playing space and minimal human interaction, they are likely to develop behavioral problems.
For an average adult Rottweiler, at least a one hour of walk each day is recommended preferably half an hour in the morning and half an hour in the evening.
