Hi Amit
It’s difficult to tell from the photos but your Rottweiler’s coat doesn’t look in bad shape to me, obviously it’s not easy to see clearly though.

Taste of the Wild is a good food and should be giving him the nutrients he needs. You can add fish oil supplements (such as
Omega-3 Fish Oils
) might help improve the condition of his skin and coat.

Bathing every two weeks is way too much. Unless he’s getting very dirty a bath once every couple of months is enough. Rottweilers do tend to suffer from allergies and have sensitive skin, so check out my Rottweiler Grooming page for tips on choosing shampoos and other grooming products.

Hope this helps, best of luck with your Rottie.

Try massaging his coat with Neem Oil (Azadirachta indica) and before daily brushing.

REgular brush do help in many ways as it take away the dead hairs aswell as help in blood circulation
