Did you know that Rottweilers are one of the oldest herding breeds in the world? In 70 AD the ancient Romans took the Rottweiler from the Germans to use them as cattle herders, and war dogs.
Rottweilers are aware, loyal, obedient, protective, loving, and playful. They love the family and are calm, they are always on the lookout for people who don’t belong in your house!
The Rottie needs to be socialized and trained at an early age. This is not a matter of “Oh I’ll train and socialize him/her later, because I wanna hang out with my friends now” situation.
When you take on this breed, you need to tell him/her who is the alpha! That starts right when you get home, they learn exceptionally quickly so training will not be so hard.

Poodles are not dumb they are brilliant! The Poodle is a very active dog, so they would go great with people who are out being active a lot of the time!
Poodles originally came from Germany as “duck dogs” but were brought over to France and became the thing to have! Due to its popularity, France made it, the national animal.

The Rottweiler Poodle mix has several different names, like the Rottie Poo, Rottle, Rottie Doodle, and or the Rottie Poodle. The Rottie poo is very smart! Thanks to both of her parents, so training them from a young age is a must!
They will, of course, pick up on what you are trying to teach them very quickly if you train them gently and consistently. If you train them consistently and gently you will have the best trained Rottie Poo in the city!
The Rottle needs to be socialized at an early age, I would take her to puppy classes this kills two birds with one stone. First, you’ll get her trained by a great pet trainer, and you will get her socialized with other puppies her own age.
The one thing that you should not do is take her out into the dog park. She is unvaccinated, and the dogs that are there can be very rude which could scar your puppy for life.
What is the Temperament, and Exercise needs of the Rottle?
The Rottie Doodle is a very calm, loving, and self-confident dog. They are great with kids and families, Rottles are cautious of newcomers and are eager to let you know when someone comes to the door.
The Rottle is also an excellent watchdog due to the Rottweiler genes. The Rottle can be dog-friendly, but you will need to teach them at an early age that chasing smaller animals is not ok.
The Rottweiler Poodle Mix needs at least 30-40 minutes of playing, walking, jogging, and or running. They are active, but only in bursts of energy, they need a house with a medium to a large-sized yard to frolic around in whenever you are gone.
What type of cleaning does my Rottie Poo need?
A brushing every day for 5 or 10 minutes, this is not just to keep up their movie-star appearance. But it also takes out knotted hair that often becomes knotted over time. You also should wash them every week to keep there hair sparkly. Also here is an important tip, wash your Rottweiler Poodle mix with shampoo rather than the regular dog wash.
