Rottweilers belong to the Working Group and are used as guard dogs, watch dogs, police dogs, and companion dogs. Rottweilers are large, solid dogs known for their solid black, flat-lying coats with clearly defined tan-coloured markings.
Rotties have double coats; the under coat is very fine and not visible through the outer one which is coarse and of medium length. They are one of the strongest and most powerful dogs in the world for their size. Built for trotting, they are well-balanced and move with a purpose giving an impression of harmony and positivity.
For their size, Rotties are very agile and capable of running and jumping with ease.
