    Exclamation Rottweiler vs. German Shepherd???????

    Hello Ladies and Gents...

    Through my years of experience with the bold k9 who will run you over if in his/her line of chase,, Clumsy footing but yet confidence that make his/her steps smoothly placed with grace.. "Rock" that you better believe, aint no other dog Weiler...lol..

    I’ve come to find many similarities between the two German Hund figures,,, who in appearance contrast "as extreme as" liberal and conservative.

    The obvious differences between the two dogs being:

    Of course Head. Rottweiler we know reigns domestic champ, in selective case study...lol.

    Coat. German Shephard with its long elegant bicolor coat. Rott compact all terrain..

    But my Questions comes into effect when I think to myself,,, OK,,, 2012 is like tomorrow lol… (laugh yall but serious with myself) both of these dogs have there pros, and cons but which is the all purposed better dog,, Like the Will smith movie “I AM LEGEND” with The iconic German shepherd..

    Which Hund has better hearing capability? The Rottweiler with its flapped ears or the shepherd’s pointers, which are always on alert ears

    Which has better tracking abilities? The rott. with its wide snout or the longer shepherds.

    Which can endure the coldest of extremes. The long haired shepherd, or the occasionally seen that almost none of us have long haired rott, so will just say short haired Rottweiler?

    Which Has better agility.. The Hip dysplasia rott or Hip dysplasia shepherd.

    The list doesn’t end there and I hope you’re genuine none biased input doesn’t either…
    ANy dog that you want to compare to the two give your input

    I want to get this out the Way as well…Thanks to all who share a moment in my life with words honestly... Let your words be free,, and provide your wisdom to the community about these two giants .

    Wish everyone Health and Happiness.

    well I can say right away that ANY dog with hip dysplasia should not be doing anything that requires a large amount of agility. How about a rott and GSD with excellent hips have you thought of that?

    No dog with HD is going to be able to do the things you're talking about. So do your research on breeders VERY carefully to be sure the proper health testing to protect yourself and your potential pup.

    Both dogs excel in protection work, and endure about the same in cold weather and heat, (Rotties have a VERY dense undercoat if the coat is correct).

    Rotties are a bit more relaxed in attitude when not working and GSD tend to be more intense even when 'off duty', but when either is on they are ON.

    The rotties nose is wider, but the GSD's is longer and I believe they are close as far as tracking. The GSD has superior hearing due to the upright ears however.

    GSD were bred as Herders, Rotties were bred more 'all purpose'.

    Both breeds are VERY intelligent and need training form the day your bring them home (good breeders will have the pups socialized from the time they are weaned and may have some basics already taught).

    HAHA I did not even think that in the other thread. "the 2012 dog" now it all makes sense. I'm so dense tonight.

    I think Cacausian Ovcharka, Sarplaninac and Kangal can take some of the coldest. For agility/endurance I'd say Kangal without HD, wouldn't want that in any dog. I think Central Asian Ovcharka will have some advantage in agility too. Those a CO or Sar can do agility lol But I assume we're not talking the agility competitions.

    There is also the Greenland dog, can take cold for sure.

    Kangal can track well.

    the long hair CO and CAO will take time to care for and blow coat like mad, short hair better off in that sense

    hearing I can't tell you, but they sure bark like mad at the slightest sounds so they must have good hearing.

    Well am I not lucky? I have coffee and my alzeimer's/dementia attitude covers all the confused bases so all is right with the world. While the rest of you wonder what the OP wanted, I just float through blissfully having owned GSDs and Rotties and no argument with either.

    I think the OP is looking for a canine to see him into the post apocolyptic world.

    Which ever would fit into your family life would be the better dog.
    Owning Rottweilers I'd say them,but I'm really not sure what you want one for.
