BREED DETAILS

GENERAL
The Rotterman is from two German working breeds better known - or feared - for their strength and perceived aggressiveness. The Rottweiler and the Doberman, both medium-to-large dogs with sturdy musculature, were bred for specific purposes, among them personal security. The Rottweiler was originally a farm dog, herding livestock and pulling carts to market, while protecting its owner from robbers and thieves. The Doberman was developed by a tax collector, Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann, who wanted a strong, dependable and fearless guard dog as he made his rounds.

COLOR
The Rotterman is predominantly black. Doberman influences will show a red coat, while blue or fawn indicates a color dilution gene that dilutes the black or red. Tan markings are typical of the Rottweiler.

COAT
The coat will be short and close to the skin, with minimal shedding except for once or twice a year.

PERSONALITY
The Rotterman is a highly intelligent dog, easily trained and conditioned. Its aggression level is popularly debated, but it is reliably settled that much of the aggression is directed towards strangers, rather than the owner. Perhaps due to its build and strength, the Rotterdam lends itself more readily to personal protection and security. Recent breeding direction, however, has undertaken to minimize aggression, making the Rotterdam more ideal for companionship and as a family dog. Extremely loyal and affectionate, they are a welcome addition to any household and will look after the members as part of its own family.

CARE
The Rotterman's coat will be easy to clean and maintain. Baths are recommended once a month. Meals should be given in small servings spread out over the day, and well away from activity sessions.

TRAINING
Formal training is best for the Rotterman, to maximize his intelligence and also ensure that firm controls are set over more undesirable behaviors. Extensive socialization will ensure the dog does not grow up too aggressive or jumpy in uncertain situations.

ACTIVITY
Leashed walks or runs daily will offset the Rotterman's tendency to gain weight. Agility courses and vigorous play will be perfect for this dog's endurance, and help keep the muscles toned. A wide space is required for a dog the Rotterman's size.
