All breeds need grooming; short coated breeds should be groomed with a soft brush or a rubber glove brush to help remove loose and 'dead' hair. Running a damp towel over them afterwards doesn't hurt. Also, all dogs need their nails clipped, teeth brushed (if needed), ears cleaned, and bathed when they get dirty. All dogs need grooming, some breeds or individuals just require less.Dober_addict said:I forgot to add in my above post that Rottweilers do require grooming, unlike Dobermans.
As for the original topic, I can't really answer. I've never seriously researched Rottweilers, nor do I have much personal experience with them other than the ones I have worked with while volunteering at the local animal shelter.
I will say though that I've never met a drooling Doberman, but a good portion, at least half, of the Rotties I have met have been droolers. I personally find drool to be the most disgusting thing ever. *laughs*
