At Ostenberg Rottweilers we believe in breeding the Complete Rottweiler – Conformation, Intelligence, Temperament and Health.
We are members of the American Rottweiler Club (ARC) and follow the Mandatory Practices for ARC breeders. We take breeding seriously and understand that genetics play a huge roll in producing sound and healthy puppies.
We don’t believe in cutting corners with breeding and we spare no expense when it comes to proving our breeding dogs.
Currently, our breeding dogs have been health tested for the following:
*OFA Advanced Cardiac (Echo)
*UC Davis Hyperuricosuria (HUU)
*UC Davis Degenerative Myelopathy (DM)
*UC Davis Leukoencephalomyelopathy (LEMP)
*UC Davis Neuroaxonal Dystropy (NAD)
*UC Davis X-Linked Myotubular Dystrophy (XLMTM)
*UC Davis Coat Length
*UC Davis Coat Color
*UC Davis Coat Curl
*UC Davis Furnishings (wire hair)
We consistently help to improve the future health of the breed by submitting our dogs in current health related studies. Currently our dogs are entered into studies at University of California-Davis, University of Missouri, University of Washington and Washington State University.
All of our puppies are raised using Puppy Culture protocol (Early Neurological Stimulation) to ensure they are properly socialized starting at a young age. Puppies are Temperament Tested (Volhard PAT) by licensed training professionals prior to placements to ensure the best success for each puppy and family.
All of our puppies are sold with a written contract and with a health guarantee. We encourage our puppy buyers to enjoy and compete in dog sports such as obedience, conformation, herding, agility, therapy work, and so forth.
We want each and every puppy we produce to be able to reach its full potential and expect our puppy owners to help get them there. We also feel it is very important that we know the health of all the puppies that we are producing, and like to keep in touch with all our clients during the life of their Rottweiler.
We will not dock tails under any circumstance.
