Not recommended for first-time owners, the Rottweiler needs extensive and continuous socialization to be a good family companion. However, this intelligent and self-confident dog is easy to maintain despite its size. The truth behind Rottweilers is that it's very easy to raise them badly so that they end up having a more dangerous personality than you'd like. It's a mistake to assume that the fact that a Rottweiler is up for adoption hasn't been raised well.
This is another reason why the Rottweiler isn't the best choice for someone who has no experience training a Rottie and may not know the requirements for having a well-balanced adult dog. Fortunately, you'll find that as long as you enjoy spending time training and working with your Rottweiler, there are a lot of things to do together. Many breeders and rescue organizations won't adopt a Rottweiler for a family that has no experience with dogs. A frightened, worried, or angry owner can cause an unbalanced and potentially dangerous Rottweiler.
While it can be frustrating to be told that you shouldn't choose the breed you choose, it's very important to consider the reasons before deciding to buy a Rottweiler anyway. As you know, Rottweilers are usually huge chunks of dogs that have the potential to weigh even more than 130 pounds (60 kg). This can create a self-fulfilling prophecy in which people's assumption that your Rottweiler is aggressive can cause your dog to become aggressive. Because of their strong protective instincts and their history as military and personal protection dogs, Rottweilers tend to have a reputation for being dangerous to people.
However, with enough research, you'll likely be able to find a breeder or rescuer willing to adopt a Rottweiler for you, especially if you can show them that you've considered the reasons why Rottweilers aren't recommended for first-time dog owners and how you intend to overcome this potential burden. Many people may have difficulty controlling a mature rottweiler, which means they're not necessarily a good choice if you choose this breed without knowing much about how to control a dog in general. Perhaps the most important consideration when choosing a Rottweiler as a first-time dog owner is to take the time necessary to raise your dog well. It's best to train your Rottweiler continuously for as long as we stay together, rather than waiting for structured training sessions.
Bad manners are by far the biggest contributor to aggressive Rottweilers and that's why there are so many cases of Rotties attacking people and animals for no reason. Remember that the better trained and exercised your Rottweiler is, the more likely you are to make an excellent partner.
