Let’s get clear of something first- be it a male Rottweiler or a female, you need to care for them equally. It isn’t such that a male Rottweiler is going to be neglected while you shower all your love on a female Rottweiler. And if that is the case, don’t buy a male Rottweiler. Simple. Apart from that, a male Rottweiler is obviously quite different from a female Rottweiler, in size, stature, and temperament. There might be slight changes in their training and diet too. All you need to do is research and find out what is it exactly that you have to do.
Here are a few things that will help you make an informed choice.
Size Of A Male Rottweiler
Male rottweilers are bigger than female Rottweilers. A male stands at 28 inches, weighing around 145 pounds, which is considerably larger than their female counterpart. They are bigger as puppies too. Regardless, they are both big dogs.
Temperament Of A Male Rottweiler
Male Rottweilers are certainly more aggressive than females and also are faster to assert themselves. They can get very dominating and you need to start training them from a very young stage to accept you as the leader. They can get very finicky when the mood serves them, so you need to make sure that your training is top-notch.
Male Rottweiler Names
Here are a few male Rottweiler names, that you can use for your dog- Axle, Bruiser, Bull, Hulk, Justice, Hawkeye, Admiral, Tyrone, Tiger, Dodger, Bullet, Hammer, Sabre, Rock, Butch, Mitch, etc. They are all powerful dog names and would suit your male Rottie perfectly.
Exercise Your Rottie
Being large dogs, Rottweilers need regular exercise to expend their energy. They descend from herding dogs and hence love the outdoors. Before you get a male Rottie, make sure you can devote at least one hour each day to play outdoors with your Rottweiler. They also tend to get obese so proper physical exercise is all the more important. Don’t let them laze around the house all day!
Due to their assertive and dominant nature, male rottweilers usually become guard dogs, police dogs, or K-9 staff. They are particularly adept at sniffing out criminals and protecting their land. So, if you have a male Rottie, you would probably find them guarding your family and property zealously.
A male Rottweiler can get quite independent at times, which you have to curb. You can’t simply let them do what they want, for that will be a huge problem later in life. Command them what you want them to do, and they will do- no questions asked. You need to enforce upon them that you are the boss. They will be willing to follow your orders and please you so don’t forget those treats when they obey. Their loyalty is unquestionable, but you need to earn it.
