Robust and powerful, the Rottweiler is happiest when given a job to perform.

An inherent protector, the Rottweiler is self-confident and responds quietly and with a wait-and-see attitude to influences in his environment. He must be medium in size and his coat is black with rust to mahogany markings.

Obedience training and socialization are musts. Rottweilers must be exercised daily, but require minimal grooming maintenance.
