ROTVAJLER (ROTTWEILER)ROTVAJLER (Rottweiler)
: FCI No. 147Originalni naziv rase:
Rotvajler (Rottweiler) ima snažno mišićavo telo , pravi je atleta u svetu pasa. Uzgojen je u nemačkom gradu Virtemberg. Početkom devetnestog veka rasa je gotovo izumrela, ali je ponovo postala popularna stotinak godina kasnije. zahvaljujući entuzijastičkim uzgajivačima iz Štutgarta. Višestruko je talentovan: on je i ovčarski pas i pas čuvar, i radni pas, ume da prati trag, a često se sreće na takmičenjima i testovima poslušnosti... Postoje dva varijeteta ove rase: nemački i američki rotvajler (Rottweiler). Nemački je niži, zdepastiji, sa većom glavom, dok je američki viši sa nešto dužim nogama. Mnogi odgajivači, međutim, kažu da je američki rotvajler (Rottweiler) rođen u Americi, a nemački u Nemačkoj, i da je to jedina razlika. Svaki rotvajler (Rottweiler) je rotvajler (Rottweiler), pripadnik jedne izuzetne rase.Kratak istorijat:
Rotvajler (Rottweiler) pripada najstarijim rasama pasa. Njegovo poreklo proteže se do vremena Rimljana. U to doba držan je kao pas čuvar i kao terač stoke. Psi su prešli Alpe čuvajući ljude i terajući stoku. U regionu grada Rottweil (Rotvajl), ovi psi susreli su se sa domaćim psima. Došlo je do mešanja pasa. Osnovni zadatak rotvajlera (Rottweiler) bio je da tera i čuva velika stada krava, kao i odbrana svojih gospodara i njihovog vlasništva. Po starom nemačkom gradu Rotvajlu ovaj pas dobio je ime - Rotvajlerski (Rottweiler) mesarski pas. Mesari su gajili ove pse samo na osnovu uspeha pri upotrebi. Tako je nastao preteča psa čuvara i psa za teranje stoke koji je upotrebljavan i kao pas za vuču. Kada su početkom 20. veka traženi psi za policijsku službu, isprobani su i rotvajleri (Rottweiler). Veoma brzo se pokazalo da je pas prikladan za policijsku službu. Zvanično je 1910. godine priznat kao policijski pas.
Uzgoj rotvajlera (Rottweiler) teži psu punom snage, crnom sa crveno braon, jasno ograničenim oznakama, koji kod snažne ukupne pojave ne sme izgubiti plemenitost, i pripada radnim psima, psima za pratnju i zaštitu.Narav
Rotvajler (Rottweiler) je jedan od najinteligentnijih pasa, zauzima zavidno 9. mesto na skali pseće inteligencije. Takođe ga odlikuje i velika hrabrost. Odličan je čuvar, a istovremeno i porodičan pas. Ume da bude veoma nepoverljiv i opasan po strance, kao i po druge pse. Prilično je imun na bol.
Zahteva dosta šetnje, prilično ga je lako dresirati, ne trpi zatvoren prostor i kada je vezan pati. Važna je socijalizacija i dresura dok je još štene, rado prihvata članove porodice i prijatelje, ali zahteva jasnu hijerarhiju i autoritativnog gazdu. Obzirom na njegovu snažnu i krupnu građu i sklonost ka prejedanju, treba voditi računa o kilažiŽivotni vek:

Breed StandardGeneral Appearance
The ideal Rottweiler is a medium large, robust and powerful dog, black with clearly defined rust markings. His compact and substantial build denotes great strength, agility and endurance. Dogs are characteristically more massive throughout with larger frame and heavier bone than bitches. Bitches are distinctly feminine, but without weakness of substance or structure.Size, Proportion, Substance
Dogs--24 inches to 27 inches. Bitches--22 inches to 25 inches, with preferred size being mid-range of each sex. Correct proportion is of primary importance, as long as size is within the standard's range. The length of body, from prosternum to the rearmost projection of the rump, is slightly longer than the height of the dog at the withers, the most desirable proportion of the height to length being 9 to 10. The Rottweiler is neither coarse nor shelly. Depth of chest is approximately fifty percent (50%) of the height of the dog. His bone and muscle mass must be sufficient to balance his frame, giving a compact and very powerful appearance. Serious Faults--Lack of proportion, undersized, oversized, reversal of sex characteristics (bitchy dogs, doggy bitches).Head
Of medium length, broad between the ears; forehead line seen in profile is moderately arched; zygomatic arch and stop well developed with strong broad upper and lower jaws. The desired ratio of backskull to muzzle is 3 to 2. Forehead is preferred dry, however some wrinkling may occur when dog is alert. Expression is noble, alert, and self-assured. Eyes of medium size, almond shaped with well fitting lids, moderately deep-set, neither protruding nor receding. The desired color is a uniform dark brown. Serious Faults--Yellow (bird of prey) eyes, eyes of different color or size, hairless eye rim. Disqualification--Entropion. Ectropion. Ears of medium size, pendant, triangular in shape; when carried alertly the ears are level with the top of the skull and appear to broaden it. Ears are to be set well apart, hanging forward with the inner edge lying tightly against the head and terminating at approximately mid-cheek. Serious Faults--Improper carriage (creased, folded or held away from cheek/head). Muzzle--Bridge is straight, broad at base with slight tapering towards tip. The end of the muzzle is broad with well developed chin. Nose is broad rather than round and always black. Lips-Always black; corners closed; inner mouth pigment is preferred dark. Serious Faults--Total lack of mouth pigment (pink mouth). Bite and Dentition--Teeth 42 in number (20 upper, 22 lower), strong, correctly placed, meeting in a scissors bite--lower incisors touching inside of upper incisors. Serious Faults--Level bite; any missing tooth. Disqualifications--Overshot, undershot (when incisors do not touch or mesh); wry mouth; two or more missing teeth.Neck, Topline, BodyNeck--
Powerful, well muscled, moderately long, slightly arched and without loose skin. Topline--
The back is firm and level, extending in a straight line from behind the withers to the croup. The back remains horizontal to the ground while the dog is moving or standing. Body--
The chest is roomy, broad and deep, reaching to elbow, with well pronounced forechest and well sprung, oval ribs. Back is straight and strong. Loin is short, deep and well muscled. Croup is broad, of medium length and only slightly sloping. Underline of a mature Rottweiler has a slight tuck-up. Males must have two normal testicles properly descended into the scrotum. Disqualification--
Unilateral cryptorchid or cryptorchid males. Tail--
Tail docked short, close to body, leaving one or two tail vertebrae. The set of the tail is more important than length. Properly set, it gives an impression of elongation of topline; carried slightly above horizontal when the dog is excited or moving.Forequarters
Shoulder blade is long and well laid back. Upper arm equal in length to shoulder blade, set so elbows are well under body. Distance from withers to elbow and elbow to ground is equal. Legs are strongly developed with straight, heavy bone, not set close together. Pasterns are strong, springy and almost perpendicular to the ground. Feet are round, compact with well arched toes, turning neither in nor out. Pads are thick and hard. Nails short, strong and black. Dewclaws may be removed.Hindquarters
Angulation of hindquarters balances that of forequarters. Upper thigh is fairly long, very broad and well muscled. Stifle joint is well turned. Lower thigh is long, broad and powerful, with extensive muscling leading into a strong hock joint. Rear pasterns are nearly perpendicular to the ground. Viewed from the rear, hind legs are straight, strong and wide enough apart to fit with a properly built body. Feet are somewhat longer than the front feet, turning neither in nor out, equally compact with well arched toes. Pads are thick and hard. Nails short, strong, and black. Dewclaws must be removed.Coat
Outer coat is straight, coarse, dense, of medium length and lying flat. Undercoat should be present on neck and thighs, but the amount is influenced by climatic conditions. Undercoat should not show through outer coat. The coat is shortest on head, ears and legs, longest on breeching. The Rottweiler is to be exhibited in the natural condition with no trimming. Fault--Wavy coat. Serious Faults--Open, excessively short, or curly coat; total lack of undercoat; any trimming that alters the length of the natural coat. Disqualification--Long coat.Color
Always black with rust to mahogany markings. The demarcation between black and rust is to be clearly defined. The markings should be located as follows: a spot over each eye; on cheeks; as a strip around each side of muzzle, but not on the bridge of the nose; on throat; triangular mark on both sides of prosternum;on forelegs from carpus downward to the toes; on inside of rear legs showing down the front of the stifle and broadening out to front of rear legs from hock to toes, but not completely eliminating black from rear of pasterns; un-der tail; black penciling on toes. The undercoat is gray, tan, or black. Quantity and location of rust markings is important and should not exceed ten percent of body color. Serious Faults--Straw-colored, excessive, insufficient or sooty markings; rust marking other than described above; white marking any place on dog (a few rust or white hairs do not constitute a marking). Disqualifications--
Any base color other than black; absence of all markings.Gait
The Rottweiler is a trotter. His movement should be balanced, harmonious, sure, powerful and unhindered, with strong forereach and a powerful rear drive. The motion is effortless, efficient, and ground-covering. Front and rear legs are thrown neither in nor out, as the imprint of hind feet should touch that of forefeet. In a trot the forequarters and hindquarters are mutually coordinated while the back remains level, firm and relatively motionless. As speed increases the legs will converge under body towards a center line.Temperament
The Rottweiler is basically a calm, confident and courageous dog with a self-assured aloofness that does not lend itself to immediate and indiscriminate friendships. A Rottweiler is self-confident and responds quietly and with a wait-and-see attitude to influences in his environment. He has an inherent desire to protect home and family, and is an intelligent dog of extreme hardness and adaptability with a strong willingness to work, making him especially suited as a companion, guardian and general all-purpose dog.
The behavior of the Rottweiler in the show ring should be controlled, willing and adaptable, trained to submit to examination of mouth, testicles, etc. An aloof or reserved dog should not be penalized, as this reflects the accepted character of the breed. An aggressive or belligerent attitude towards other dogs should not be faulted.
A judge shall excuse from the ring any shy Rottweiler. A dog shall be judged fundamentally shy if, refusing to stand for examination, it shrinks away from the judge. A dog that in the opinion of the judge menaces or threatens him/her, or exhibits any sign that it may not be safely approached or examined by the judge in the normal manner, shall be excused from the ring. A dog that in the opinion of the judge attacks any person in the ring shall be disqualified.SummaryFaults -
The foregoing is a description of the ideal Rottweiler. Any structural fault that detracts from the above described working dog must be penalized to the extent of the deviation.Disqualifications
Entropion, ectropion. Overshot, undershot (when incisors do not touch or mesh); wry mouth; two or more missing teeth. Unilateral cryptorchid or cryptorchid males. Long coat. Any base color other than black; absence of all markings. A dog that in the opinion of the judge attacks any person in the ring.

Companion, servic and working dogKlassifikation FCI
(Pinscher and Schnauzer type, Molossian type and Swiss Mountain- and Cattle Dogs and other breeds)Section 2.1
Molossian type, Mastiff type with working trial.Brief historical summary
The Rottweiler is considered to be one of the oldest dog breeds. Its origin goes back to Roman times. These dogs were kept as herder or driving dogs. They marched over the Alps with the Roman legions, protecting the humans and driving their cattle. In the region of Rottweil, these dogs met and mixed with the native dogs in a natural crossing. The main task of the Rottweiler now became the driving and guarding of the herds of cattle and the defence of their masters and their property. This breed acquired its name from the old free city of Rottweil and was known as the "Rottweil butcher`s dog".
The butchers bred this type of dog purely for performance and usefulness. In due course, a first rate watch and driving dog evolved which could also be used as a draught dog. When, at the beginning of the twentieth century, various breeds were needed for police service, the Rottweiler was amongst those tested. It soon became evident that the breed was highly suitable for the tasks set by police service and therefore they were officially recognized as police dogs in 1910.
