Looking for a unique mixed breed? Look at our gallery of Rottador photos!
The Rottador is also known as the Labrottie. It’s a cross breed between a Rottweiler and a Labrador Retriever. Any mix of these two breeds has the potential to display a wide range of physical and social traits. While most Rottweiler-lab mixes in the past were accidental, there are now more breeders crossing them deliberately. It’s important to do your research on an ethical dog breeder if you’re buying a Rottador puppy.
The color of a Rottador’s coat largely depends on their lab parent’s coloring. While they could display the classic black and red-brown of their Rottweiler parent, they could also be a chocolate, black, or golden lab color. Whether your Rottador sheds is mostly up to the luck of the draw. Even though a Rottweiler has a low-shed, short coat, the lab parent may give an individual puppy their shedding double coat. Either way, the mix will still have an easy-maintenance short coat.
Exercise and Training
Daily exercise is very important for a Rottador. Both Rottweilers and Labradors are prone to obesity. Long daily walks and devoted play sessions are necessary. Your Rottador’s Rottweiler instincts will attach them to you, meaning you should devote lots of time to them.
A Rottador’s personality depends largely on the personalities of their parents as well as the level of their socialization. Both Rottweilers and labs make loyal family dogs, as both interact well with children. Rottweilers do have powerful guarding instincts, which may show up in a Rottador. Positive reinforcement and socialization are key to forming a well-behaved Rottador.
