The importance of proper Rottweiler grooming
There are a few things that should be done frequently and others that only need to be done now and again when it comes to your Rottweiler.

You should look in their ears for dirt, parasites and irritation, and lift their lips to look at their teeth and gums. Feel their coat and check and massage their skin, feeling for bumps as you move your hands over their hips, legs, chest and head.
There are also other things to worry about when it comes to Rottweiler grooming. Teeth and nails for instance, which tend to be the parts of a Rottweiler’s daily grooming that most owners neglect. The best way to maintain your Rottweiler’s nails is to make sure they get outside and get walked regularly, as this will help keep their nails short and strong. You also want to clip their nails regularly, to help avoid ingrown toenails and toe disease.
Teeth typically require a bit more maintenance, and tarter causes gum disease just as often in dogs as it does in humans, so it is important to watch out for this. You should start brushing your Rottweiler’s teeth on a regular basis when they are just a puppy, so that they will become accustomed to it and actually begin to enjoy it as they get older rather than have it be a chore all the time.
