The Rottweiler is first and foremost a working dog.  Used as a drover, draft dog and guard dog, the characteristics of endurance, strength, loyalty and intelligence combine to make a versatile dog able to perform in a variety of situations.  Schutzhund combines obedience, tracking and protection work.

 

        

Obedience is the cornerstone of every activity in Schutzhund work.  A solid foundation is necessary before involving a dog in tracking and protection.  The BH (Begleithunde [Companion Dog] Obedience and Traffic Sure) is a good first step towards attaining a Schutzhund title.

Tracking is an integral part of the Schutzhund work.

Protection or 'bite work' is the part of Schutzhund that most people think of.  This training comes only after the dog has a solid foundation of obedience.
