After reading my article on Pit Bulls, someone commented that they would like to see a similar article on Rottweilers. Obviously this person felt the same way about both breeds and clearly didn't realise that I have three Rottweilers myself! However, Rottweilers do get a lot of bad press and they do unfortunately feature as one of the breeds that has been involved in human fatalities (although so do Golden Retrievers Husky's, Malamutes, German Shepherds, Chows, Border Collies and many others, including one incident with a Dachshund). I became a Rottweiler owner by choice, after I became a behaviourist and trainer. My knowledge and experience attracted me to the breed and many of my colleagues also seem to feel the same. Yet, we also feel the same about Pit Bulls... So what is the fundamental difference between these breeds and why do we view them so differently?
