Their Training
Rottie puppies require early socialization, which includes exposure to various people, places, pets, and things. This will help to ensure that your Rottie puppy grows up to be a well-rounded dog.
Rottweilers need to have an established leader in their training. This person should be someone who is assertive and truly has time to devote towards training.
They require firm and consistent training. They don't respond well to harsh discipline, but rather one sharp word.
Their Past
Romans used Rottie puppies to drive cattle and to pull carts for farmers and butchers.
They were also used to protect money the cattlemen received. This was done by cleverly putting the money in a purse and tying it around the dog's neck.
The first Rottie puppy came to the United States in the late 1920's, with a German immigrant.
Their Personality
Even as a Rottie puppy, they have the inherent desire to protect their family and property. With this in mind, they should never be allowed to be aggressive.
Both are known to be affectionate, but female Rottie puppies are more-so. Male Rotties tend to be a bit more watchful and constantly surveying his surroundings for threats.
Rotties are not highly excitable dogs, but they possess a strong desire to work.
Their Health
They are prone to hip dysplasia, like many dogs. This is a genetic condition in which the thigh bone doesn't fit snugly into the hip joint.
The Rottie puppy is prone to gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV). This is also called bloat and is a serious life-threatening condition. This can happen when a dog rapidly ingests a large meal, consumes massive volumes of water, followed by vigorous exercises. Essentially the stomach is distended with gas or air and then twists.
Elbow dysplasia is a genetic malformation of the elbow joint that also affects Rottie puppies.
Other Fun Facts
Purchase some earplugs, because your Rottie puppy will probably snore right into adulthood!
Rottweilers have a double coat and shed heavily in the spring and the fall.
The Rottie puppy and adult dogs are prone to obesity because they have a tendency to overeat and gain weight rather quickly. Like humans, it's not always easy to shed those unwanted pounds, so always monitor their food intake and provide them with high-quality nutritional meals.
Though Rotties are good with children, they have a natural instinct and tendency to herd, like the Corgi. The Rottie puppy is substantially larger, so they may bump the toddler causing him to fall. Firmly teach your Rottie that this behavior is unacceptable.

The Beautiful Blue Frenchie

The Blue Frenchie is a rare but beautiful member of the French Bulldog family. They are sweet little comical pups who garners tons of attention virtually everywhere their presence is known. Below, we are sharing some known and unknown facts about this rare breed. They Have Great Temperaments Do not read into the Blue Frenchie’s somewhat glum face, because they are far from it. They are widely known to be silly and entertaining!  They are well behaved with family, friends, strangers, and other dogs. They don’t require much space, adapting well in apartments or on a farm. With the exception of barking to announce the arrival of a visitor, they’re otherwise quiet and respectable doggie companions. They need a little patience during the training process, because they are Bulldogs after all, which means they can be stubborn! They are overall great as pets. Controversy and Legitimacy When choosing a Blue Frenchie, you’ll soon learn that there is some controversy surrounding their very existence. We’ll look deeper into some of those issues regarding their gene type and breed standards. The Blue Frenchie came about as a result of a recessive allele on one of the genes that determine the color of their coats. What would normally be black hair becomes blue in parts and in some cases, a strong blue color covers their entire body. These colors are highly attractive to many future owners. They’re striking and rare and rightfully stand out from standard French Bulldogs and other dogs, in general. As a result of their rare color, they are not recognized by the American Kennel Club or any other dog associations. Consequently, the Blue Frenchie may not be as desirable as a breed standard, especially for owners who wish to show their dogs. Final Thought Despite the controversy surrounding the Blue Frenchie, this does not affect their popularity and how they have increasingly become household favorites. They may look different from their French Bulldog counterparts, but they are equally desirable and well-mannered dogs. Come to our store near Miami Florida and see for yourself!
