Grooming is an important part of keeping any dog. Your Rottweiler will have their own unique grooming needs. Even though this breed has fewer grooming requirements than others, daily focus on certain aspects of their care goes a long way towards keeping them happy. We’ve made a list of five basic Rottweiler grooming tips to help you get started.

Grooming Your Rottweiler

Since Rottweilers have flat, short coats, they generally do not need as much grooming maintenance as other dogs. Giving them a healthy diet will help them with skin and coat health in general. If your Rottweiler has skin allergies or outbreaks, consider changing their food. Here are five more Rottweiler grooming tips.

1. Brush Every Day

Use a rubber curry brush and a soft bristle brush every day to catch shed fur and loose dirt. Try not to brush too hard or too much, as this could give your Rottweiler brush burn on their skin. A few minutes every day should suffice.

2. Give Infrequent Baths

Since Rottweilers generally have low odor and shorter coats, they only need baths about three to four times a year. There are exceptions, especially if your dog likes rolling in mud and getting stinky. Use high-quality, neutral-pH dog shampoo.

3. Wipe Their Muzzles

A Rottweiler’s long muzzle means saliva strings. Their thick lips, called flews, also mean the saliva can get more easily trapped. Wiping every day with a rag or old towel will minimize the drool. and keep it off your floors.

4. Brush Their Teeth

You should be brushing your dog’s teeth at minimum three times a week. Regular brushing for a Rottweiler means less chance of tooth decay and periodontal disease. Use a specially-made toothpaste and toothbrush for dogs.

5. Check Their Nails

Rottweilers should have their nails trimmed once a month. Since their nails are black, it may be difficult to tell where the quick is. Many owners prefer to use a nail grinder instead of trimmers, since there is less of a chance you’ll hit the quick and hurt your pet. If you still feel uncomfortable, ask a professional groomer for help.
