Rottweiler Growth Chart – When Are Rottweilers Fully Grown? | PawLeaks
Getting a Rottweiler puppy is such an exciting thing and as responsible owners, we would like to care for our Rotties the best we can. So when I got my first Rottweiler puppy, I was so worried about my dog’s growth, sudden growth spurts, as well as her diet and exercise. Besides the health aspects, isn’t it interesting to know how big your young dog will get? Especially large and giant breeds have such explosive growth that it’s hard to believe that a few pounds could develop into nearly 100 pounds in a matter of months. This article covers everything you need to know about the Rottweiler’s growth, the growth stages, and how you can even calculate your dog’s estimated adult weight and height.

How Much Do Dogs Cost? My Budget Breakdown | PawLeaks
In this article, I’m going into specifics on how much a large breed dog like my Rottweiler will cost me over her lifetime and how much she has cost up until now. It’s worth every cent. Plan for a higher financial burden, ranging from more expensive vet visits to wear and tear of your dog’s accessories, not to mention the extra money you’ll spend on food. Keep in mind that a large breed dog will easily grow up to weigh 100 – 150 pounds and questions like “Should I feed my dog raw?” will entail serious financial implications. Small or medium dog owners: Your dog’s diet may be cheaper and toys will hold longer but make no mistake, owning a dog will be expensive.

Can Dogs See Color Or Are All Dogs Color Blind? | PawLeaks
Have you ever thought about how your dog perceives the world through his eyes? Is he also able to see the beautiful flowers on the field or the colorful toys that you have bought him? The theory that dogs are colorblind has been around for a very long time. Humans thought that dogs only react to movement and can differentiate shadows from light. While dogs are not color blind, they are not able to recognize certain wavelengths and perceive the color spectrum in a yellow or blue tone. #dogs #dogfacts
