The Rottweiler is a very distinct breed with some ancient and pretty exciting origins. Rottweilers are the descendants of Roman drover dogs- drover is the term used for dogs that herd cattle. These ancestors were brought North with Roman legions as they attempted to push the empire’s border further north into Germania. Centuries after the fall of the Roman Empire in the cattle town of Rottweiler, Germany is where the Rottie we love and know today. These dogs were used to move cattle and protect precious livestock and owners from bandits and cattle rustlers. However, with the invention of the railroads and cattle cars in the 1800s, the Rottweiler suddenly became unemployed. But these brilliant and versatile dogs soon found their way into other professions in police work, personal protection, and all-purpose dogs used to perform various tasks that required both brains and muscle.

Males tend to be up to 28 inches (or 71 centimeters) tall with weight proportionate to their height, and females being slightly smaller. It is worth noting that some lines of Rottweilers out there have been bred to possess more aggressive tendencies, and there are some unstable temperaments within the breed.

With excellent communication, from consistent and clear canine leaders, this breed can quickly learn new commands and complex behaviors. It should be noted that they can have a stubborn streak, which will require an excellent canine leader to guide this breed in the right direction and earn its respect. But, if they can find someone who can work with them instead of against them, the Rottweiler will prove to be highly trainable in a variety of different tasks and jobs.

With the right direction, a Cane Corso can be trained to do pretty much anything from personal protection to agility, to tracking, obedience, and dock diving. But be wary of their black coats as high amounts of strenuous exercise can easily make this breed overheat when it is hot out. These issues can be traced back to improper vaccination regimes and spaying or neutering dogs of this breed before six years.

Like the Rottweiler, the Cane Corso breed also tends to be suspicious of strangers and can be a potentially hazardous dog without a good foundation of heavy socialization. However, some individuals still have problems with small animals and may go after them with predatory intent due to the breed possessing some prey drive and herding instincts.
