The mix of two formidable breeds of dogs, a Rottweiler Pit mix is bound to be lovable. Both the Pitbull and the Rottweiler have certain traits about their strength and tenacity that are mostly justified. But they’re also known for being lovable and fun-loving companions. But what is said about their mindless ferocity is based on opinions of people who don’t know these breeds.
Nature Of A Rottweiler Pit Mix
Both breeds are high energy dogs that are intelligent and courageous. So it can safely be assumed that they will be just as energetic and lively. You would need to match their energy to keep up with them.
This dog, like both the parents, loves it when given a tough task to complete. They like to be tested and challenged, and the owners would do well to match their enthusiasm.
One biggest trait of a Rottweiler Pit hybrid is their loyalty and the affection they have for their owners. This is something that they have inherited from both their parents in equal parts.
The goofiness of the Rottweiler combines well with the gusto of the pit bull to give us a lovable breed. This mixed breed is both fun-loving and hyperactive.
Training Your Rottweiler Pit Mix
These dogs can alternate between being friendly and distant. This breed is very well behaved if trained properly. The dog is stocky and muscular and is generally preferred for their fearlessness and protecting abilities.
The perception of them being intimidating is not based on facts but on people’s assumptions. Proper training will make them easy to be with.
The breed Pitbull was originally reared in Britain for bull and bear-baiting. This cruel sport was finally banned but then the pit bull began to be used for dogfighting.
But this dark phase in their history conceals the fact that the Rottweiler Pit hybrid is a very intelligent dog that does well when trained. All they need is the right training and lots of love to help them train the right way. Training needs to be a continuous process that begins right from the day when they are a puppy. They quickly learn simple commands and their attention span grows with age. Begin with treats and praise as the breed doesn’t take well to negative training.
The Rottweiler Pit hybrid is more of a stable breed. And justifiably combines the impressive prowess of both the Pitbull and the Rottweiler breeds.
One thing you can be sure of is that a Rottweiler Pit mix will display strong leadership traits. If trained and socialized the right way, they will bring much joy to the family of which they become a part.
