Rottweiler puppies look adorable and cute and they grow into wonderful dogs but how do you know where to start when getting your own dog? We wanted to share a simple guide that will help you pick a dog that you can have a long and happy future with. Putting in the effort and researching this unique and beautiful breed is an important first job when considering dog ownership.

Here are some tips to make sure you choose the healthiest of the bunch although you will also be going on gut a lot when seeking out your new best friend.

5 Things To Look Out For When Choosing Rottweiler Puppies

While trying to select a puppy for your family, you will notice that each and every Rottweiler puppy is an individual with its own personality. It is best to interact with all the puppies before you make your final decision.

1. Find A Responsible Breeder

Your first, and most important step will be to find a reputable breeder. Not all breeders breed for health and longevity, so you need to make sure you’ll get a healthy Rottweiler puppy. You can look on the AKC‘s website for Rottweiler puppies from responsible breeders.

3. Interact With The Litter Of Rottweiler Puppies

By interacting with the puppies you will get a feel for their personalities and will be able to assess their health. Puppies should be energetic with clear eyes and shiny coats.

4. Assess Their Living Arrangement

Puppies should stay in a clean environment with space to run around in. They should also have constant access to fresh, clean water and puppy food.

5. Ask For Health Records

Puppies from reputable breeders usually come with their first vaccination already done and their parasite treatments up to date. You can also ask for health screenings from the parents to assess the risk of inherited conditions. Health screenings can usually be found on the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals’ website.

Now that you know what to look out for when getting a puppy, have fun choosing your new Rottweiler best friend!
