Rottweiler LifeSpan - How long does Rottweiler live ??

How long does Rottweiler Live ?

rottweiler life span - help live longerRottweiler is a is a medium/large size breed of domestic dog, so their average lifespan is not very long (14,15 or 20 years) as in small dogs.

Studies and breed surveys in US, UK show that a healthy averaged size Rottweiler dog lives an avarage of 8 to 12 years and it is common that female Rottweiler dog lives an average 2 years longer that a male Rottweiler dog.

Some Rottweilers live for a longer time and many others die earlier.



Every Rottweiler is an individual and has their own health challenges, so there's no one-size-fits-all figure. It could be worse (many large sized dog breeds have even a shorter lifespan, such as the Irish Wolfhound who only has an average lifespan of between 6 and 8 years, the same for the Great Dane) but it's definitely not great.

How to help your Rottweiler live longer ?

- The first and maybe the most important thing to help your Rottweiler have a healthy and long life is to make sure he gets vaccinated on time and that he completes the full set of required vaccination during his life.

- Consult the vet regularly on how to keep your Rottweiler free from canine parasites such as worms.

- Feed your Rottweiler puppy only the best balanced premium food.

- Monitor your dogs diet and exercise while growing up so the dog won't get 'too fat'.

- And also an important thing is to get help quickly if you are concerned about your Rottie's health at any time so you will have a healthy friend for a long time.

  1. You want your Rottie to live longer? Get only the core vaccines, separately, avoid the Leptospirosis vaccine and get them vaccinated once. Feed them raw dog food, give them plenty of exercise and obtain one from an ethical breeder with proper medical clearance of his parents (OFA, etc.). Do not feed your rottie kibble.

  2. My rotty is almost 13yrs old, grain free food and she's been treated like a queen her whole life. I have PTSD from domestic violence and she's my service animal and best friend. She's literally saved my life a few times. I love rottwieller, best most loyal dogs ever, she's my fourth rotty n I'm 55yrs old.

    1. Dry food. Baked in an oven so even nutrient is essentially gone by the time they eat it. Raw is the way to go. I'll never go back.

  6. My male rottie just turned 13 last month! He's definitely slowed down in his old age, but he's still going strong... and there's many a time he acts like he's a puppy. I attribute his good health to a couple of factors... lots and lots of love (all the time!)... and I never had him neutered. In fact, his muzzle just started to turn grey last year... I swear the fact that he still has 'his boys' has made a huge difference to his overall health.
