The Rottweiler is a medium to large sized dog with a powerful muscular body and a warm, loving heart.  The VKC™ Rottweiler's sturdy body, expressive face and sleek coat have made it a huge favorite with VKC members.


  • Basic Positions: stand, sit, down, bang, beg, bellyup, shake, rest
  • Basic Activities: come, getbone, howl, itch, roll, rove, sniff, speak, wag, wander
  • Other Activities: go, run, on, greet, get (These require you to name a destination or an object; for example, "Fido go Sandry" or "Fido run redball" or "Fido greet Bichon")
  • Owner-only commands: heel, follow (Follow also requires you to name a destination)
  • Special command: fetch (Requires a redball toy, free at VKC Dog Parks)

These instincts are not described in any detail because it will be much more fun for you and your dog to try them out together.

Special Poses

To pet the Rottweiler, the avatar approaches the front of the dog, bends his knees a bit and pets the dog on the head. Then the avatar bends his knees more deeply until he is face to face with the dog and nuzzles the dog briefly. As the avatar stands, he waves fondly to the dog.

Color Options

You can use the commands color and tint with the Rottweiler, but only the tan markings and the highlights of the dog will change color. Coloring the Rottweiler has a subdued effect.
