Dog Training for Rottweilers and Rottweiler puppies

Rottweiler dog training at Royvon

The Rottweiler is very strong, intelligent, steady tempered and serious. Therefore, firm but fair handling is essential, including steadfast consistency, clear leadership and plenty of positive reinforcement for desired behaviour.

The Rottweiler is a guarding breed and should not be overly pampered - exercise and obedience train your Rottweiler first and enjoy all the affection and loyalty from them in return.

Royvon specialise in recall training for Rottweilers.

Brief History

The Rottweiler takes its name from the small German town of Rottweil and was traditionally used as cattle-herding dogs, driving animals to market. Legend has it that the butcher tied would tie their profits to the dog's collar where no one dare touch it. Although narrowly avoiding extinction around 1900, the Rottweiler today remains high on the list of registered breed, performing roles as a guard dog home guardian and companions.
