How to Name Your Rottweiler

The Germans always field a strong team at the World Cup. Only Brazil and Italy
have won more titles, and when the Germans do not win, they usually finish
near the top. Sound anything like the Rottweiler?

The Powerful History of the Rottweiler

Rottweilers descended from Roman cattle-herding dogs and are closely related
to giant dog breeds that were used in war. They are now one of the most
popular dog breeds worldwide. Rottweilers make excellent family watchdogs, and
when they are working cattle, they keep the herd together during the day and
guard them during the night.

It is no wonder that they are trained as police dogs, war dogs, and personal
protection dogs. Rotties are big, and most of them weigh in at 50 to 60 kilos
(about 110 to 130 pounds); they are also tall. If you like the names of the

Provide a Collar and Name Tag for Your Dog

As soon as you have chosen a name for your new Rottie, be sure to buy a new
name tag that also shows your cell phone number. I ordered one of these spike
collars for my dog and it makes her look even more like a World Cup winner. It
also does great things for her reputation on the beach!

Tips for Raising Your New Puppy

If you already have your new puppy or will be picking him/her up soon, there
are a few things you need to keep in mind:

  1. Since your dog will be big, you need to make sure you socialize him when he is still young and obedience train him so that you will be able to handle him properly.
  2. Rottweilers do well when trained as personal protection dogs (Schutzhund) and also excel in herding competitions. Give your dog some activities and don’t make him lie around the house all day!
  3. If you do not provide your dog with some sort of activity, he risks becoming obese. Obese dogs develop arthritis, have breathing problems, and may become overheated. If you cannot exercise your dog enough, control his diet.
  4. If you did not find a name you like here, be sure to read about authentic German names. If you decide not to go for one of those, choose a name that has one or two syllables, is fairly easy to pronounce, and is not among the most popular dog names. After all, you want your dog to be unique, not the same as every other pup running around the dog park.
  5. Rotts have a lot of energy and should not be locked up in a crate. If you need to use a crate for housetraining, do it with a cardboard box. Rottweilers are intelligent and easy to train and it will take less than a week.
  6. Take lots of pictures. Your puppy will grow up fast and you will want to remember how small he was.
  7. Have fun!

Don't forget to take care of your new dog's teeth. The best way to keep them
clean is by feeding a diet of meaty bones.

Maintain Your Dog’s Oral Health

The best way to keep a large dog’s teeth clean is by offering a diet of raw,
meaty bones. There are many websites and forums that give more information on
feeding whole, natural food or a raw dog food diet. If you are going to take a
Rottie into your home, spend a few minutes learning about this diet.

Cute names and ADORABLE pictures! I love rotties.

Dr Mark (author) from The Atlantic Rain Forest, Brazil on June 17, 2014:

It could be worse. There is a player on the team by the name of Mario–how
would you like to walk around with that name? Everyone would think of a small
pot-bellied Italian man and his brother.

Bob Bamberg on June 17, 2014:

I don’t know…around here, a rotty named Walter would get bullied at the dog
park by a chihuahua named Sabre. Fun and interesting hub, though…voted up,
interesting, and useful.
