Rottweilers have a strong reputation for protection work and guarding. Their size, loud bark, and protective nature have the potential to make them excellent protectors. Unfortunately, years of poor breeding has diluted previously strong and highly driven working lines. This has led to temperamentally unsound dogs we would not view as being appropriate for family protection work. However, on occasion, this is not the case, and we recently sourced a number of Rottweilers that meet our very specific requirements to train as family protection dogs.
