Rottweiler Specific Dietary Needs

Protein

The Rottweiler is a blue-collar dog with a heart of gold. The breed’s powerful build, sharp intelligence, and deep family loyalty make it a versatile companion and working dog. Whether your “Rottie” is on the clock or on the porch, they need protein-dense food to maintain a lean and muscular body condition and overall health.

Proteins are necessary for the structure, function, and regulation of your Rottweiler’s internal processes, including muscle and joint health, and the building and maintenance of a robust immune system. Guard your Rottweiler’s vitality with a high-quality, human-grade animal protein-based diet from Ollie. Our relentless commitment to canine nutrition starts with our meat-first recipes featuring chicken, turkey, beef, and lamb. In addition to choice muscle meat, we include nutrient-rich organ meat (e.g., kidney, liver, and heart) for essential vitamins and minerals.

Fat

Rottweilers love to work and play hard, but these big babies also love to sit on your lap. While it’s hard to say no to that clownish smiling face, an overindulgent lifestyle can lead to weight gain and one rotund Rottweiler. But fat is an important part of the canine diet, delivering easily digestible energy, enhanced flavor, a sense of fullness, and absorption for fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K. Ollie tailors your Rottweiler’s dietary fat to match their specific calorie needs based on their age, body condition, activity level, and health. From a tireless working dog to a tired family pet, your Rottweiler receives customized nutrition every meal, every time.

In addition to fat from meats, Ollie adds superfoods cod liver oil and fish oil for omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Omega-3s are heart-healthy, natural anti-inflammatories, and can restore a lackluster coat to its full black and tan luster and shine.

Carbohydrates

While the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) provides no official guidance on carbohydrate content, Ollie’s complete and balanced recipes include a healthy blend of ingredients to provide digestive fiber, slow-burning energy, and powerful antioxidants. Our versatile ingredients deliver a nutrition jackpot to your Rottweiler’s food bowl—serving up superfoods such as butternut squash, quinoa, spinach, chia seeds, blueberries, and kale. 
The resilient Rottweiler has a short life span, averaging only 9 to 10 years. Ollie supports your Rottie’s immune system from puppyhood to adulthood with our all life stages recipes loaded with powerful antioxidants and natural anti-inflammatories.

Common health issues that can be mitigated with a proper diet

Rottweilers are affected by inherited and acquired health conditions. Feeding them a high-quality diet made with whole food ingredients can prevent or improve some conditions, including:

  • Bloat — Feeding several smaller portions throughout the day and encouraging slow eating may reduce your Rottweiler’s risk for this emergency condition.

  • Hip and elbow dysplasia — Maintaining a healthy body weight can reduce painful joint arthritis, while a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids can reduce inflammation naturally.

  • Obesity — Calorie-restricted meals that are high in protein and healthy fiber help your Rottweiler feel full without overeating or begging for table scraps. 

  • Cancer — Natural antioxidants and anti-inflammatories support a robust immune system and good health, potentially reducing cancer risks.

  • Growth-related issues — Ollie’s tailored nutrition ensures your growing puppy receives an appropriate calcium and phosphorus ratio for controlled, healthy growth, as well as DHA for brain and vision development. 

Your dog is your best friend, and you want to do everything possible to keep them healthy and happy. Packed with fresh ingredients and high-quality nutrients, an Ollie diet may help your Rottweiler avoid health issues.
