Your Rottweiler Puppy – Upfront Costs A healthy Rottweiler puppy from a good, trustworthy breeder is not cheap, as a lot of time and effort go into breeding those highly effective protection dogs. Then on top of that, there is the cost for all the vaccinations and additional vet consultations that your puppy may need. To make sure that everything is set and ready before your bring your dog home, you want to puppy-proof your house and yard. And you want to set up everything your little Rottweiler will need, like a crate large enough for its future size, a comfortable dog bed that will also fit the pup once it has grown up, bowls for food and water as well as puppy toys. (PROMO: Speaking of toys, our 'Fenrir Hammer' is ideal for powerful dogs like the Rottweiler: It is the heaviest duty rubber in the world and will withstand even the strongest chewers. The toy is fillable with treats or kibble just like a Kong. In this way, the Hammer will help your puppy with separation anxiety and provide mental stimulation. Also, this multi-use toy is an excellent retrieval dummy and can be used as a fun toy to play tug of war. You’ll find the product-link down in the description box, and of course on our main website, https://fenrircanineleaders.com.) To make sure you are well-prepared for training your new dog, we from Fenrir have high-end equipment and training guides on offer: The Perfect Puppy Course is a step-by-step video course, designed to teach you how to train your Rottweiler puppy – right from day one. Basically, the Perfect Puppy course will help you to get it right the first time round. When it comes to extra-secure collars and leashes, we have developed an entire product range of virtually indestructible training aids for puppies and adult dogs. Which make a lot of sense to get for a Rottweiler, who is one of THE most powerful guard dog breeds in the world. One thing is for certain: With our Odin Leashes and Odin Collars, you will never again have to worry about your dog breaking loose on a walk. Conventional leashes and collars can and do snap, which can easily put your dog in harm’s way, for example if it chases a cat across a busy road.

So, let’s list everything we have mentioned so far, and let’s see how high the approximate costs for getting a young Rottweiler really are: - Well-bred Rottweiler puppy: between $1,500 and $2,500 - Core vaccinations for the puppy: between $75 and $100 - General Vet Consultation: approximately $100 - Crate for large dogs: approximately $250 - Comfortable, high quality dog bed: approximately $150 - large dog bowls, claw cutter and soft brush/grooming mitt: approximately $60 -- High quality Collars and Leashes: approximately $150 - Perfect Puppy Course: $99 - Puppy toys: approximately $100 So, if we are adding up all those costs, we reach a total of initial costs of between approximately $2,480 and $3,510 Next, let’s look at the budget needed to maintain a Rottweiler, and for this purpose, we will list all costs broken down by month. Ongoing Costs when Owning a Rottweiler Especially novice owners always underestimate how expensive having a dog is. As we saw, the initial investment is already quite substantial, but that is only the beginning. The much higher costs come later, in the day-to-day feeding and caring for your large puppy, who will become a fully-grown Rottweiler before long. Adult male Rottweilers can easily weigh 60 kilos, which is roughly 132 pounds. Especially vet bills are something to watch out for, as they can easily go into the thousands if your dog needs to have expensive medication or surgery. If you do not have pet insurance, you might find yourself in the horrible situation of having to have your beloved Rottweiler euthanized – simply because you could not afford treatment. Also, if you want to save money on the feeding front and you go for a low-quality kibble from the supermarket, you might set your dog up to become seriously ill and potentially even die prematurely: Especially large, heavy breeds like Rottweilers absolutely need a high-quality food to grow and mature in a healthy way. And to stay healthy when they are older. Which is why we at Fenrir encourage owners to feed their Rottweiler a healthy, well-balanced raw diet. If this interests you, but you find all the contradictory information on the net a bit confusing, then make sure to check out our Raw Food Masterclass. You can find this user-friendly manual on https://fenrircanineleaders.com or you can simply click the link in the description box below. To give you a better overview of the feeding costs for the Rottweiler, we will compare the cost for raw feeding with the cost of a high-quality grain-free kibble. Also, we will list expenses that you are likely to encounter when owning a Rottie. In terms of maintenance cost for such a huge dog, we have listed the costs for: Raw Food per month: between $300 and $400 Grain free dry food per month: between $150 and $200 Larger collars or harnesses as your puppy grows, broken down per month: approximately $20 Costs for pet insurance or Vet bills per month: approximately $120 Toys for heavy chewers per month: approximately $10 Doggie Day Care or Dog Walkers per month: between $100 and $500 Boarding for vacations, broken down per month: approximately $40 Adding up all those costs, we reach a total of monthly maintenance costs for a Rottweiler of between $440 on the low end and $1,090 on the high end. As we can see, owning a Rottweiler and providing such a massive dog with everything it needs for a long, healthy and happy life is not cheap. Therefore, before getting one of these awesome protectors, make sure that you are in a financial position to comfortably afford all the expenses involved. If you are not, then build up your financial basis first – rather than getting a Rottweiler puppy and hoping that it all will somehow work out: You definitely do not want to gamble with your canine best friend’s health.
