Ideal Environment

This breed needs plenty of space and daily runs. A daily trip to the dog park should burn excess energy. Proper training is a must. Start leash training from puppy-hood in order to get the dog under voice command when it's older. This breed requires a firm but gentle pack-leader. Exercise is a must to prevent unwanted behavior.

How much should rottermans eat?

always check the back of your dog food bag and pick the size of your dog and feed it as they tell you


Hello all. My mother recently purchased an 11 week old male Rotterman puppy from a breeder in northern Georgia. She has recently, 7/31/11, gotten his ears cropped. I was wondering if anyone else had done this to their Rotterman? I was under the impression that, for cropping, the ears needed to be splinted and bandaged for a few months to ensure that the ears stand erect. The vet that does the breeder's dog's ears, however, insists on no splints or bandages; instead, my mother is supposed to apply anti-bacterial ointment to the puppy's ears for two weeks. I've heard that some breeds don't need splints for their ears to stand erect after the cropping; is this so with Rottermans? I just don't want my mom wasting $250 on a procedure because the after care wasn't correct.

I have a rotterman of nearly 7months now, and i haven't cuted his ears or his tail. I think its not needed and the dog looks not very aggressive. I have also discussed with some other people who own dogs, and they told me that the ears of their dogs get very dirty every day, and if they don't clean them up the dog risks to have a lot of pain and maybe an infection. so don't make anymore changes to your puppy. and the ears need to be blended for 2-3weeks, and the doc needs to see them.
