Rottweiler Puppies: Tips on Finding Rottweiler Puppies for Sale

Choosing a Rottweiler for a pet entails a lot of things to consider. You do not just wake up one morning and decide to have this kind of dog for a pet. Owning this particular type is a huge responsibility, akin to raising a family. Once you get into it, there’s no turning back. Before deciding, you have to ask yourself these questions:

  1. Am I ready for an additional financial burden, possibly for a long time?
  2. Am I ready to share my space with a pet that needs to be attended to regularly?
  3. Am I diligent enough to take care of a pet?

If your answers to these questions are positive, then you need to consider whether the Rottweiler is fit for you. Your primary basis for choosing is your lifestyle and your personality.

Rottweiler puppies tend to be assertive and confident. They can sense when the personality of their owner is weak and they will try to asset their dominance. It would, therefore, be essential to evaluate the personality of a Rottweiler from the time that you choose the puppies. Here are some tips that would be helpful when evaluating:

  1. Buy only from responsible and knowledgeable breeders. These breeders select their breeds for temperament, ability to be trained, and health. They normally ask about the backgrounds and home environment of potential buyers to make sure that their dogs are matched to the right persons. These breeders are available for advice throughout the lifetime of the dogs and are even willing to take them back should the owners are unable to take care of them.
  2. Observe the puppy while playing with its litter. A litter’s behaviour is often an indication of a puppy’s. Choose only from a litter that is sociable, confident and trusting. If some puppies tend to shy away from you, this may mean that you will  have difficulty in training a puppy from this litter and it may have trouble coping up with human contact later in life. You can also establish the personality of a puppy relative to its siblings. The dominant puppy is the alpha and needs an owner that is dominant and firm. This type normally tests the limits of its owner’s authority. The submissive puppies require a patient and gentle owner since they tend to be sensitive. The puppies that are playful yet non-domineering are just right for most owners since they are easily trained.
  3. Observe the puppy when it is away from the litter. A puppy’s attitude when it is away from its siblings will also determine its sociability and trainability. A calm and confident puppy will be easy to train. When the puppy listens and looks at you when you talk to it also indicates that it is obedient and attentive.

Seek advice from veterinarians or animal shelters for good breeders in your area. You can also ask around from your family, friends, neighbours and associates who have pets for referrals about breeders. Once you have selected a Rottweiler puppy, be prepared to spend time to train it and to pay regular visits to the vet so that the well-being of the puppy is maintained. You will see the fruits of your patience when the pup grows up to be a well-adjusted, obedient and happy canine companion.
