The Pitweiler is the mix between a Pit Bull Terrier and a Rottweiler; they are also called Bullrott, Rottbull, Prott and Rottpit…

The Pitweiler makes a very good dog with excellent guarding instincts and are very protective of their owners and home. They can grow anywhere from 45 to 100 pounds in weight and 18-27 inches in height. The average lifespan is around 10-15 years and they are generally a healthy breed. The size of the adult grown dog will be harder to tell in a mixed breed such as the Pitweiler but you can generally assume it from the size of the feet during puppy stage.

Bringing a Pitweiler puppy into own your home, he will always change your life. A puppy always needs a lot of love, puppy care and attention, mainly when it comes to his food and when it comes to feed. Some determination and patience are but you will be rewarded with a loving and healthy dog. Many different varieties of nutrition’s are available for your Pitweiler puppies it depends on you what you select for your puppy what is best for your puppy it’s only you decided and you just try your level best to get something suitable to his first stage of life but on first age of puppy he is not able to food or different varieties of nutrition’s, Pitweiler uppies should not be separated from their mother before they are six weeks old – they get the antibodies and nutrition they need from their mother’s milk. At 3 to 4 weeks, puppies should begin nibbling on solid food.

The temperament of the Pitweiler

Pitweiler’s are brave and loyal dogs and do not tend to stray from home. They need to be properly socialized at a young age to take away any aggressive tendencies that are genetically embedded into both Pit bulls and Rottweiler’s. You can’t go wrong with a mix such as this one you get what you put in and these dogs need a strong handler that can teach them their place in the pack. A Pitweiler is generally good with kids though you should never leave your kids alone with a dog that is not socialized or recently adopted and not assimilated in to the family yet.

The Pitweiler is easy to groom and shed minimally and are easily cared for. The coat of the dog will vary from short and sleek like a Pit or dense like Rotti’s. The Pitweiler’s ears can be cropped or left alone depending on owner preference. If they are cropped be sure to keep them clean and cover it with cotton while washing the dog. They are highly energetic and needs a daily walk or exercises to keep their energy down. They are not super quiet dogs and will bark if he or she senses another animal or strangers.

Some important health notes on the Pitweiler

The Pitweiler’s may be prone to hip problems as they grow older just like the Rottweiler, which is common against large breed dogs. The Pitweiler can also have skin issues such as dry skin once in a while so be sure to wash the dog with shampoos containing natural ingredients that preserve the oils in the dog’s skin. Some dogs may suffer from upset stomach so be sure to feed foods that are specifically marked for sensitive stomachs such as Royal Canin.
