Is a Rottweiler a good family dog?

Yes, a Rottweiler is a good family dog. This breed is famous for being affectionate, protective, and loyal to its family.

Proper early training and socialization are essential. Rottweilers need a strong pack leader who will calmly and kindly let them know who’s in charge and what behavior is desirable.

Rottweilers are typically good with children. However, given their size (up to 130lbs), they could accidentally knock over smaller kids, so should never be left unsupervised around them. They may also try to herd children during boisterous activities.

Rottweilers are more suitable for families with older children, who will enjoy games and energetic play without being at risk of accidental injury.
