Care and Feeding of Rottweilers

Rottweilers love being fed but you should take great care to ensure that you do not overfeed your dog. Excessive intake of food can cause a lot of stress to a Rottie’s heart, especially taking into consideration that dogs of this breed have a life expectancy of only 8 to 10 years. You should also not exercise a Rottie excessively.  It is essential to keep your Rottie at a healthy weight to enable it to lead a long and healthy life.

Here are a few tips to help you balance your Rottie’s eating and grooming needs.

Feeding and Caring Tips

  • Do not overfeed your Rottie since it attains physical maturity rather slowly and, therefore, must be kept lean. 
  • You can judge if your dog is overweight if its waist is not visible or you cannot easily feel its ribs.
  • Overfeeding makes the Rottie more susceptible to torn knee ligaments, shoulder ailments and hip dysplasia.
  • Avoid feeding your Rottie cooked bones, rawhide, sterilized bones or smoked bones. These foods may cause intestinal impaction that can result in need for critical surgery or, in extreme cases, may even lead to death.
  • It is safe to give your Rottie chew toys such as those of the Nylabone and Kong brands, or even real cow hoofs, buffalo leg bones (8" or longer in length) and raw beef, but only after removal of all exterior fat. It is not advisable to give your dog cow ears and pig ears. These can result in illnesses.
  •  Keep the dog without water for an hour after every meal.  This avoids bloating.

Grooming Tips

  • Brush your dog daily, or at least once a week, with a rubber brush or a fine toothcomb. This will reduce hair shedding.
  • Wipe your Rottie’s ears once a week with a cotton ball dampened with a commercial ear cleaner, alcohol, or peroxide.
  • Limit baths to two or fewer every month. Make sure you dry your dog well after every bath.
