The Rottweiler breed is a popular family guardian and friend. Pet parents with an active lifestyle will find a faithful, loving, and intelligent friend for life with a Rottweiler. Novice pet parents should beware, however, as these purebreds are strong and intense and require focused care and obedience training while young.
The Rottweiler is a German breed that was originally created to drive cattle. Due to their muscular stature, they were later used to help pull butcher carts around town. Modern-day Rottweilers are often just good family companions, though they're still used regularly on the police force and in the U.S. Military.
Most male Rottweilers stand between 24-27 inches at the shoulder, while the females are typically a little smaller. Their muscular frame can make them intimidating, but with proper socialization and obedience training, these dogs make fantastic family friends and great watchdogs. Providing your Rottweiler with leadership that he can respect without using physical force is important; otherwise, he may take the role as alpha, and your ability to control them will be diminished.
Rottweilers are fantastic pets and companions, but they aren't for everyone. This breed has gained an unnecessarily bad reputation, which means you will likely deal with people who don't understand how friendly and social Rottweilers can be. There are even cities that have banned the breed altogether. If you choose to raise a Rottweiler, do your best to redeem the reputation of the breed by training your dog to be obedient and respect people.
How dog-friendly is California?
California loves dogs!
California’s dog-friendliness is clear right out of the gates when we look at their pet population. Californians own the most dogs of any state in the U.S., with a little over 40% of homes housing a canine friend. And of the 264 shelters in the state, 118 are no-kill shelters.
California has also enacted plenty of animal welfare laws to guard against people leaving pets in cars or abusing their pets. The state limits owners to four dogs per household to ensure all pups get the attention and care that they need. California is also the only state where pet insurance is mandatory.
A study by WalletHub, the consumer finance site, found that 17 of the top 100 most dog-friendly cities in the country are located in California. They measured dog-friendliness by examining important things like pet-care and veterinary care costs, walkability, percentage of pet-friendly apartments, and animal welfare laws.
Safewise conducted a similar study and ranked California as the sixth most dog-friendly state in the country, while Pawsafe ranks CA as the 26th most dog-friendly state. Both sites are trusted in the pet-loving community.
Dog-friendly spots to go in California
With so much to offer as a state, there are unsurprisingly plenty of awesome dog-friendly spots across California. One of the state’s main attractions is the number of dog-friendly beaches. From San Diego to all the way up the North Coast, many beaches are open to dogs to play and run through the sand.
California is also home to plenty of parks, restaurants, and other areas and activities for you to enjoy with your pups. According to a Trust for Public Land (TPL) study, San Francisco has the fifth-highest number of dog parks per city by capita, with four dog parks per 100,000 residents. Bakersfield, Fremont, Long Beach, and Chula Vista also ranked in the top 25 for the most dog parks.
There are fewer parks in the Los Angeles area, with only 13 parks for the four million-plus residents. Of these parks, eight of them are off-leash parks.
Any areas for improvement?
The main area of improvement for California is dog-friendly housing. California offers a fairly average percentage of pet-friendly rentals. Not to worry – you’ll still find a place for you and your pup, but you should plan to spend a little more time in your search.
