Important Information About Rottweiler PuppiesThis is a featured page

Once you have decided you want to add a Rottweiler puppy to your household then you need to find a healthy and happy Rottweiler puppy. For first-time owners either of a dog or just of a Rottweiler there are a few general tips that can help you find the right dog for your household. The first important tip is to choose the puppy out of the litter that approaches you or at the very least doesn't shy away if you approach them. You never want to select a puppy that is fearful or aggressive. The puppy should be friendly and allow you to hold and handle them. Next you want to make sure you meet the parents of the puppy. You want to observe the behavior of the parents before you adopt any puppy, as they should be friendly and easy to touch and handle. If the parents manage to adjust well then there is a high chance that the puppy you adopt will do the same with proper training.
It is important to carefully examine the back legs of a Rottweiler puppy. Rottweilers can have problems with their back hips that are costly to fix because of their large size. You can reduce the risk of having a dog with these problems by avoiding a Rottweiler puppy that has hips that grossly turn out, rather you want hips that for the most part face forward. Since some of these disorders can be hereditary you also want to make sure the puppy's parents don't have a history of hip disorders.

You also want to carefully consider how the breeder treats and trains their puppies, don't just take things at face value. How your Rottweiler puppy will turn out later on depends greatly on how the breeder raises the puppies. Just keep an open mind when looking for your puppy and remember that you will never be able to find the perfect animal but you will be able to find a loving companion that is loyal to you for years and years.
Never be afraid to ask questions when looking for aRottweiler puppy, since asking questions is a very important part of finding the right puppy. Asking how many times the mother has had puppies is one of the most important questions to ask. As a general rule female Rottweiler's should have no more than three litters in their lifetime in order to have the best breeding results. The mother also needs adequate time to recover before she is bred again after having a litter. If a female Rottweiler is over bred the puppies can have both health and behavioral problems.

It can be difficult to ask questions, but just keep in mind that a good breeder is eager to answer any questions you have and wants to be helpful. Often you won't even have to ask some questions with the best breeders since they will give you all the general facts and let you assess the traits of the parents. Good breeders won't push you because they will want to make sure you are raising your puppy right. So don't be afraid to ask any questions, especially the important ones such as the health history of the parents.

Ask the right questions when selectingRottweiler puppies and make sure you take into consideration their health and history. After you have selected the right puppy for your household then you can focus on choosingRottweiler puppy names.
