Let’s start covering the topic of factors. There are a number of factors that cause the price of Rottweilers to fluctuate from one state to another. There are mainly four reasons or as we are calling it here, factors for that fluctuation. Getting to know about them will help smoothen your adoption process a little bit.
LOCATION- Location comes first when discussing these factors. India may be a small country but our culture is rich and that is explained by the huge number of states we have. Because of the geographical and temperature differences, the prices are expected to fluctuate from one state to another. If you buy a Rottweiler from another state that will cost you more than buying from your own state. A different situation, however, arises when your state charges more than the other states in question. This is bound to happen as there is no price range put on Rottweilers and breeders and dog mills are free to charge what they want at will.
BREEDER- Breeder is a huge factor in determining not just the price of your Rottweiler but also the quality. Adopting from a reputable breeder will obviously cost you more than adopting from a non reputable or lesser known one. Different breeders tend to put different price tags on their dogs. A very crucial bit of information. When you’re thinking of adopting Rottweilers or any kind of dogs, make sure to avoid dog mills. The price there may be considerably lower compared to some breeders but so will be the quality. Therefore avoid dog mills at any cost. One more thing to avoid while adopting your pup is brokers. Brokers may be competent enough to bridge the gap between buyer and breeders but adopting from them is never a good idea. Breeders will not only have a good quality dog but will also help provide a lot of information, especially for first time dog owners.
QUALITY- Quality is another factor that helps in determining the pricing for dogs like Rottweilers. Quality is basically the kind of dogs. For example dogs are sectioned into three kinds. The basic quality or the pet quality being the first one. Followed by the KCI registered ones and then comes the show quality ones that cost the most. Pet quality ones are the least expensive ones, with the middle one being the KCI quality ones and the most expensive one being the show quality ones. Be aware! Do not let the breeder fool you into believing that every dog in his or her litter is of show quality. Only one or at most two puppies in a litter is of show quality and sometimes even that is rare. So do not let yourself get fooled or be taken advantage of.
AGE, COLOR, COAT, FUR- These four influence the pricing of dogs as well. Younger pups cost more than full grown up ones. Colors that are rarer cost more than the common ones. Rottweilers are mostly black and tan in shade so other colors that are rare for them like brindle cost a lot more. The quality of the fur also influences the price of Rottweilers to some extent.
According to the FCI or the Fédération Cynologique Internationale, Rottweilers are all about “balance, endurance, proportionality, intelligence and strength”. They have a round shaped head with a strong neck of fair length which is quite well muscled. They have very strong jaws, both upper and lower. Due to their well developed nose they have the amazing ability to pick up even weak scents. This is also why they were used as police dogs during the First World War. Normally, Rottweilers have two coats, one being the upper and the other being the under. The undercoat may not be visible through the outer coat though. The coat has to be of medium length, coarse, dense and flat and any coat that is long and or wavy is considered to be a flaw by the AKC or the American Kennel Club. Rottweilers are also known to have a lot of distinctive coloring and markings. They are mostly black in color with rich tan markings on the cheeks, muzzle, throat, chest, unde the base of the tail over the eyes. Rottweilers are calm, confident and courageous dogs. They are not that friendly though and have a certain aura of aloofness to them. They are self-confident and respond accordingly after judging the situation and people around them. Which is why they may act unpredictable when put in the same place with kids as children themselves are kind of unpredictable.
DOG FOOD EXPENSE FOR ROTTWEILERS
The most recurring expense that you will face after adopting a Rottweiler will without a doubt be the dog food. They are giant dogs that are naturally athletic and therefore need food that has a big concentration of protein. They need food rich in essential nutrients for their growth and development. Affordable and good quality dog food will cost you around 2,000 INR to 4,000 INR.
Although Rottweilers are extremely sturdy dogs even they can fall sick if not taken care of properly. The Indian heat sometimes might be too much for them to take and therefore might result in dehydration and sunstroke as well. Not just that, vaccinations should also shouldn’t be missed. Vaccines usually cost around 1,200 INR to 2,000 INR. Another important thing to protect dogs from are worms making deworming incredibly crucial. Vet prescribed deworming medicines don’t exceed the value of 500 INR to 1,000 INR.
Rottweilers have a tendency to shed during the shedding season. As a result, they are in need of extensive skin and hair care if you want to keep their fur on them. Normally an amount of 5,000 INR should be kept aside monthly for the sake of grooming. Sometimes, however, it may end up exceeding the amount. But usually that is a normal value for grooming purposes.
Basic accessories include leather leashes, belts of good quality, chains, kennels and bowls for food and water. Apart from that another important thing that dogs need are toys.
Teething is a recurring issue in many dogs. Toys like ropes or small squishy plushies are a good option for growing and teething puppies. All these additional expenses will be around 2,000 INR to 4,000 INR and may exceed in case you decide to spoil your pup even more.
If you plan on travelling with your dog then we have a very unfortunate news for you. The Indian railway does not allow you to travel with dogs. It does not matter if the dog is big or small. Therefore airway might be the next best option for you to choose if you plan on travelling with you dog. But be ready to spent a hysterical amount just for the sake of traveling with your dog. But you knew what you were getting yourself into when you walked that four legged mischief home.
There’s a very frequently asked question that most of the time stops potential dog owners from adopting Rottweilers. That is, if the dog is aggressive or not?
Well, they are aggressive, but not in every situation. It is a very common misconception and given their biting habit it is normal to assume that. They are intelligent dogs and although they are aggressive, rest assured that aggressiveness will not be triggered at just anything. Rottweilers will asses the situation before aiming their teeth at their enemy.
The article has made it pretty clear that although Rottweilers come with a lot of advantages they also have a handful of disadvantages with them but that is common for any dog. If you are determined in your capabilities and financial stability then go ahead with adopting this dog without any hesitation.
They are incredible pets, guard dogs and playmates. Rottweilers will not only ease your loneliness but will give you the energy to start your day with a new vigor everyday!
