Owning a dog is a big commitment. A healthy large breed dog can live 10+ years. Make sure that you are willing to dedicate the next decade of your life to this dog. There is considerable expense involved as well. A good quality feed will run you about $45.00+ a month. Your puppy will need to complete his immunizations, and then need yearly vet exams. If your home is not fenced and you do not plan on installing a fence or adding an underground containment system, you need to make the commitment to take daily walks of at least 20 minutes with your dog rain or shine in hot and freezing weather.
I do NOT recommend putting your Rottweiler up EVERY TIME you have a visitor. Without training, discipline and socializing, your dog will never learn what is expected of him. Putting a dog up that was never taught as a puppy not to jump on people will not correct the behavior of jumping on people. This must be addressed to be corrected. However, if your dog is not lacking is social skills or training and is simply doing his “job” of keeping a close eye on a repairman that is wondering around the house, then putting the dog up will give peace of mind to the poor repair man.
Owning a Rottweiler carries a lot of responsibility and requires a big commitment of time and patience, but can bring rewards that could never be measured. I still firmly believe that a good Rottweiler, well bred and raised properly, is the best companion available to anyone of any age. I have had the opportunity and pleasure to work with many dogs breeds, and none compare to the Rottie. They are funny, intelligent, affectionate, loyal, and of course adorable. They love unconditionally and will lay down their life in protection of their family without hesitation. At least 80% of our customers are previous Rottweiler owners, because as one gentleman put “everything else is just a dog.”
PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTACTING US ABOUT GETTING ON THE WAITING LIST:
It is and always has been the Guardian Rottweiler policy to not offer refunds, of any amount. All sales are final, so please take this into consideration prior to contacting us. A Rottweiler is not an “impulse buy” nor is he disposable. He is not a fleeting decision. He will become a part of your family and love you unconditionally from the moment he meets you. He will lay down his life for you and everyone in your family with unwavering loyalty. Purchasing your Rottweiler is only a drop in the bucket of the expense that will be required to raise one correctly. You will need quality food, excellent vet care, training, toys, etc. on a regular basis, and you must also be financially prepared in the event of illness or injury to adequately care for your new family member. If you are not yet ready to make the commitment, then please take whatever time you need to make sure your finances, household, job, time, etc. are optimal to do right by your new family member.
