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 New Mexico?
New Mexico has some room to grow when it comes to its animal-friendly laws and accommodations. On the plus side, a few New Mexico cities are super dog-friendly, and the state is a great destination for visitors traveling with their pups.
Let’s look at a few studies into New Mexico’s dog-friendly rankings.
Animal advocacy group Pawsafe ranked New Mexico as the 35th most pet-friendly state of all 50 states. They examined several factors, including animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails. Unfortunately, they didn’t rank New Mexico very well for its animal welfare laws, which address things like animal abuse, neglect, or even fighting.
Another study by a safety review website, Safewise, actually ranked New Mexico last of all 50 states. The ranking has a lot to do with animal welfare laws and access to pet services.
Overall, we’re hopeful that New Mexico makes some improvements for its dogs and dog lovers!
