5 Tips for Selecting A Rottweiler Breeder
by: Lea Mullins

Watch out for warning signs.

A clear sign of unhealthy breeders are those who tend to have more than two different breeds. Usually, those who have multiple dogs breeds intend to sell their dogs to stores. Such breeders are what most people know to be puppy mills, puppy-brokers, or back-yard breeders. The downside of this is that the puppies are often taken away from their mothers much earlier than what is recommended. Often times, the puppies aren’t well developed and cared for before they are taken away to be sold. Such breeders are more concerned with profit rather than their dogs’ well-being.

Do a background check.

Rottweiler breeders who are active members of certain breed clubs such as The United States Rottweiler Club, The Rottweiler Club of Canada, The American Rottweiler Club, The Rottweiler Club of Great Britain as well as other national organizations are known for producing excellent breeds. Breeders who are part of such clubs or organizations follow strict rules that ensure the welfare of their dogs.

Get to know your breeder face-to-face.

It is always a good idea to get to know your breeder face-to-face just so you really know who you’re dealing with. If possible, it might even help to visit the premises so you can see the dogs as well as the conditions they are living in.

Observe the behavior of dog being bred.

Watch out for signs such as over aggression and fear. If you see these traits present in the dogs you come across, you may want to think twice about the breeder. This means that they aren’t handled properly.

Insist on Health Screenings.

Finally, make an effort to ensure that the breeder’s stock is free of genetic defects. Rottweilers are prone to certain medical conditions such as hip dysplasia. Hip Dysplasia is a result of poor hip socket formation. Although other factors can cause the development of this disease, among Rottweilers, this is a common genetic disease. Responsible breeders have their dogs screened by x-ray before having them breed with other dogs. Eye problems and heart diseases are other genetic disorders that are quite common among Rottweilers.

When it comes to searching for a good breeder, it is always better to make sure that you have seen all your options. Never rush the process. It’s always better to see all that is out there to help you make the best decision.
