I Own a Rottweiler and the Stigma Behind them Needs to Ends

Arent Dogs the best? They are the loyalist of friends and are the best listeners in the world. They’ll stand back while you ramble on about whatever crap has come your way and then just rub their nose on you and want a cuddle. The least judgemental being in the world and yet we can be the most judgemental to anyone who owns a certain dog.

I have a Rottweiler, One of the most judged and frowned upon dogs in the world, for decades these dogs have been vilified by the court of public opinion. The world thinks that they are vicious and always aggressive wanting nothing more than to attack anything that moves.

To the typical person, Seeing a young person with a Rottweiler walking alongside is the ultimate sign of fear, that this person will let the dog off the lead and the dog will attack you. Leading to you crossing the road and walking the other way to avoid it.

This has happened on a near daily basis when I walk my rottweiler, Venus, On one occasion a man was that fearful of Venus that he walked in the middle of a busy road to avoid us. Just let that sink in, He Hated a Rottweiler so much he was willing to kill himself and his dog by walking into traffic.

I’ve had people go out there way to scold Venus and I, with one owner telling me to have my dog put down simply because of the head collar Venus was wearing and in one case when Venus had a little moment with another dog two people threaten to call the RSPCA.

Yet in the vast majority of cases, a Rottweiler is harmless and won’t attack. They are not bred to be monsters, but rather companions who’ll keep their friend safe. By Breed, a Rottweiler is natural strong-willed and stubborn, they also have a strong bite. This comes from their original uses from herding cattle and being a German police dog.

They’re loyal and hardworking, always wanting to please their friend and will learn quickly. They Love cuddles and are extremely affectionate.

Yet My venus embodies everything I’ve just written, while A loving and cuddly dog Venus won’t back down if someone was to attack me. She won’t randomly attack any dog that walks by, She’ll Try to make friends just like any normal dog.

Venus the Rottweiler

Most Rottweilers are like Venus, as most owners are sensible and will always make sure their Rottweiler is behaving correctly, Yes occasionally there are some people who won’t train there Rottweiler and will make it attack everything. Why Punish a Majority on the actions of a minority.

Treat Rottweilers exactly like a Labrador, or a Springer Spaniel or even a German Shepard.

If you do see a Rottweiler in the streets, just walk past and go about your business as normal and if you want to stroke or make a fuss of the dog, just ask! As all Rottweiler owners won’t mind at all. In fact my Venus won’t let you move as she’ll want to be friends forever.
