Calm, intelligent, and hard working dogs.
Rottweilers enjoy dog sports such as agility, tracking, herding, and obedience.
Because they are sensitive, they respond best to reward-based training using treats or favorite toys.
The Rottweiler was originally bred for various purposes including the guarding of people and/or property. Individual members of this breed will benefit from firm and dedicated training to temper this guarding tendency, and thus help to maintain safety as a household companion.
