Beaster dan beast aka nick davis: Are female rottweilers as good as males at guarding?
What should i do? Get a female 7 week old rottie now or a 5 week old male rottie in 2 weeks? I need a big dog. I also want the companionship my chihuahua does not give. But the question is can females be as good or better at guarding and companionship as males? Also should i go with the female now or wait 2 weeks for the male?

Females are often more territorial

never ever ever buy a puppy under 8 weeks ever you will have many behaver problems arise in the future
mom brought home our 7 year old when she was almost 7 weeks she is a bitter bitch! thinks she rules everything and he snappy does not know how to greet properly i have to re train her
know that im 16 and have done a good job but seriously think before you spend your money
rotties are great family dogs and good to scare of ppl just by looks
sex is sex does not matter which one, i think you need to do your homework cause im 16 and clearly know more
i have done way more homework and im still not sure if i should get one cause i am still not going to spay/neuter it just cause thats how i feel about it, and cause of that i am researchng more and more and i wont stop even after i get my pup
researhc is key cause another dog does not need to be put to sleep cause of stupid owners who bought him/her for guarding/wrong reasons, i foster many dogs that have been put in that problem and are the hardest cases to train out of it! get a book about rotties or find a local reputable registerable breeder and go visit they are more then willing to help!?
my pug cocker spaniel male is worse then a pitbul and my friends chihuaha is nasty little shit! its not the dog or the breed its the owner and the time and training.
oh and i would rather wait to get my rottie whe nits 12-13weeks whne he is more developed so i can go meet his personality and pick one that suits my family etc sex does not matter!

I have had both a male and a female rottweiler and though I didn't have them primarily for protection or looking hard I must say that the female was far better suited.
The male simply had too many power issues to be much good, I never knew if one minute to the next it would simply attack me for looking at its food in the wrong way.
Get a female, they are much more even tempered. Male rottweilers simply have too much interest in being alpha than actually doing what they are supposed to do, and that includes making sure you don't get where you are supposed to be going through their territory.
