As a dog, the Rottle adult will also try to communicate through the scent of its urine.

How big is a Rottle?

The average Rottie poo height is around 20-27 in (50.8-68.6 cm). The height of parent breeds is quite important when it comes to judging the height of a Rottiepoo. Most of these Rottiepoo dogs are medium-sized. If the dog is bred using a mini Poodle parent dog, then it might be smaller in size. However, the standard Poodle is most likely used to breed Rottle puppies.

Refrain from giving the dogs frequent treats as they may get used to it. Proper nutrition ensures that these high-energy pet dogs will have little to no health problems.

Are they slobbery?

No, Rottles aren't that slobbery.

Would they make a good pet?

The Rottle is an eager-to-please dog that loves its human parents. Hence, the Rottle is one of the best pets that you can get. However, like all other dogs, you will need to spend enough time with your Rottle and give them a good amount of attention. Rottles can be territorial and protective of their owners, but it isn't a great guard dog. This dog breed is amazing with kids, and both of them can play for hours because of their common high energy levels. The Rottle has a mixed temperament coming from its two parents. In most cases, the temperament is quite affectionate. Additionally, it is important to remember that the Rottle is not meant for first-time dog owners as they might get intimidated by this high-energy dog.

As dog parents, one of the most important things to think about is the puppy's training. Rottles are easy to train dogs, so you wouldn't need to struggle with them. As the dogs have high energy levels, you will need to follow an adequate exercise regime. Your Rottiepoo needs 60-90 minutes of daily exercise. A great way to give the dog enough exercise is to take it outside on long walks or even on hiking trips. Without proper exercise, the dog may turn a little mouthy and attack its toys or even your furniture. The Rottiepoo provides a good response to obedience training. They are great at sports, but as they are mixed-breed dogs, they can't officially participate in dog sports. To make training easier, you can call a professional who has experience dealing with Rottles or one of its parent breeds.

Another important thing about this dog is its grooming. As a low-shedding dog, the Rottle won't shed a lot except during the shedding season. Nevertheless, you will need to brush the dense and curly coat of the dog almost every day. Make sure to groom your Rottle four to five times a week to keep its coat knot-free. While you are grooming the dog, also make sure to clean its ears and teeth. A pin brush and a comb work best for grooming the coat of a Rottle.

As a mixed-breed dog, you may need to spend some time looking for your Rottle puppy. The Rottie poo can cost you a price of $500-$1500. In some cases, the price can go up to $3000. Dogs with rare coat colors may cost you even more. Be responsible when it comes to choosing a breeder as you want to have a healthy puppy. Make sure to do enough research about the breeder before adopting the dog.

Did you know...

The common Rottle health problems seen include von Willebrand's disease, hip and elbow dysplasia, stenosis mitral valve dysplasia, corneal dystrophy, patellar luxation, progressive retinal atrophy, and subaortic stenosis mitral valve. As a mixed-breed dog, the Rottie poo can also be prone to health problems seen in the parent breeds. It is important to get a Rottie poo puppy from a responsible breeder who will tell you about the health conditions of its parents. To have healthy and happy pets, we should spend time knowing more about their history.

The hypoallergenic Rottie poo is a myth as dogs aren't hypoallergenic. These are low-shedding dogs, but the Rottie poo needs to be brushed and groomed every day. If you have allergy triggers, it is best to talk with a health physician before adopting a dog. The Rottiepoo is a good choice of dog for those who do not want to deal with dog hair all over their house.

Do Rottles bark a lot?

Yes, the Rottie poo does tend to bark, and it inherits this quality from the Poodles. The barking of Rottie poo dogs is not always linked to aggression. You can give your puppy obedience training to lower its tendency to bark. The Rottie poo breed dogs are most likely to bark when it comes to close contact with strangers, be it humans or another dog. If you are outside, make sure to keep the dog on a leash to avoid any accidents.

History of the Rottle breed

Not a lot of information is found about the Rottie poo dog breed. The dogs have most likely come out of the trend of having designer breeds during the 1980s. Breeders that specialized in making designer breeds must have intentionally started mixing Rottweiler and Poodle dogs to create the Rottle Rottweiler Poodle mix dogs.
