A Rottweiler can run as fast as 25 miles per hour over short distances.
Despite this, Rottweilers are not considered to be good running dogs. Because of their powerful build, they are not adapted to running for extended periods. If you’re looking for a companion who’ll go distance running with you, a Rottweiler is not the best choice. It is likely to tire quickly and slow you down.
However, if you enjoy a gentle jog at a more leisurely pace a few times per week, your Rottweiler will be happy to join you.
