Rottweiler Books For Puppy Owners

If you’re a first-time Rottweiler puppy owner, or it’s been a while since you had a young ‘un in the house, any (or all) of these books can help.

Rottweilers For Dummies I love the ‘For Dummies’ series of books, and have a quite few of them (covering everything from Algebra to Sleep Disorders).

Of course, I also have the ‘Rottweilers For Dummies’ edition.

When it comes to Rottweiler books, this is a great choice for new puppy owners.

It’s written in an easy-to-read, common sense style.

Packed with useful Rottweiler info, practical tips and a good dose of humor.

Definitely a good place to start.



The Everything Rottweiler Book This handy book gives a good, basic overview of Rottweiler care, again in an easy-to-read style.

A good book for Rottweiler ‘beginners’ or people who just want to find out more about this breed.

Covers all the basics, including training your Rottweiler, socialization, feeding, grooming and more.

A useful and interesting handbook.



The Art of Raising a Puppy (Revised Edition)Although this can’t exactly be classified under the ‘Rottweiler Books’ heading, it’s one of my all-time favorite dog books!

I highly recommend it to all puppy owners (no matter what breed you have).

The featured breed in this book is the German Shepherd, but the wealth of information and advice is perfect for Rottweiler puppy owners too.

Everything is covered in great detail, from before a puppy is even born, right through his adolescence and into adulthood.

Designed to give you a better understanding of your pup physically, emotionally and on a social level.

This is the book I go back to over and over again.

* I have the ‘original’ version (I’ve had it for a l-o-n-g time!) but the revised addition is even better with updated photos and added sections on play, adoption and more.



Rottweiler DVD. Everything You Should Know + Dog & Puppy Training BonusThis DVD from the Pet Video Library provides an insight into the history and origin of the breed, plus information and advice on feeding, grooming, training and more.

If you prefer to watch, rather than read, this is going to be perfect for you.

The bonus DVDs include ‘Interactive Basic Obedience’ which will help you teach your Rottweiler puppy basic manners and obedience commands.

‘Puppy Play Date’ is designed to help keep your little guy or girl occupied when you’re not home.


Rottweiler Books – Breed Info., Training & More

Rottweilers are a fascinating breed. An unexpected blend of gentleness and courage, mischief and sensitivity, goofiness and dignity.

When you understand your Rottie, you’re better able to care for, train and protect him.

A practical guide tailored to the individual needs of Rottie owners.

The author is a professional dog trainer and has a very thorough understanding of (and love for) the Rottweiler breed.

Covers everything from choosing the right puppy and basic puppy training and socialization, to formal obedience training, CGC Certification (Canine Good Citizen), Agility. And pretty much EVERYTHING inbetween.

This excellent book will help you understand your Rottweiler, which will make training so much easier!

I’d say this is a one of the ‘must own’ Rottweiler books.

* I have the first edition of this book, and it’s awesome. This updated version is even better.


The Professional’s Book of Rottweilers This is one of my favorite Rottweiler books, and it’s both big and beautiful – just like my dogs :o)

A coffee-table style book, it doesn’t just look good.

In fact it’s postively overflowing with everything you’ve ever wanted to know about the Rottweiler breed.

There’s detailed information on Rottweiler history and origins, the establishment of the breed in Germany, the US, the UK, Canada, Australia and other several other countries.

In addition to advice and tips for choosing, raising and training your pup you’ll find Breed standards, pedigree information, Shutzhund, showing (and gorgeous photographs) ….. really too much to mention.
