American Rottweilers make excellent therapy dogs
The only difference between the American Rottweiler and the German Rottweiler is the size of the dog. The German Rottweiler is shorter, stockier and more muscular then the American Rottweiler. The American Rottweiler is thinner in the face and body and taller than the German Rottweiler. They are both black with tan markings on their cheeks, chest, muzzle and eyes and both have medium double undercoats that have straight and coarse hair.
The females are smaller than the males weighing between sixty to one hundred pounds, while the males weigh between eighty-five and one hundred thirty-five pounds. These dogs do not realize the strength in their size and are sometimes referred to as a gentle bears.
The American Rottweiler is becoming known as an excellent therapy dog and is becoming very well known with the physically challenged. He is a very intelligent dog and a hard working dog. He aims to please and is happiest when performing a task. However, these dogs can be stubborn and need to be trained and socialized at a very early age.
They are now becoming known as excellent dogs for the physically challenged. They are also awesome therapy dogs. It is no wonder that they have been the second most popular dog in the United States for the last two years. The American Rottweiler is a healthy dog but can have problems with hip dysplasia and cancer has started to become more pronounced in the breed. Any noticeable moles or lumps should be check immediately.
Reputable American Rottweiler breeders should not be difficult to locate. They can normally be found on the Internet, through recommendations from other Rottweiler owners, through your veterinarian and from the American Kennel Club. These breeders should be socializing their puppies with their own families to get them customized to humans.
They should be able to answer all of your questions about the breed and will normally turn the tables on you and ask you many questions to see if you are ready to own an American Rottweiler. There are German Rottweiler breeders and American Rottweiler breeders and if you have done your homework sufficiently, you will know the distinct difference between the two. Having a discussion with the breeder about the two types of Rottweilers is a good idea.
These dogs make great pets and because of their size will become excellent guard dogs. They are not aware of their size and when their humor comes through it is quite silly.
