Browse Website | Show Quality vs. Pet Quality

I wanted to explain a little about Rottweiler puppy quality since this seems to be the most misunderstood. People tend to think a "show quality" Rottweiler puppy is a Rottweiler puppy from the litter which is of higher quality and is therefore required to be show. They then think that a "pet" quality is a Rottweiler puppy from the litter that is of a lower quality and is therefore labeled a pet only. This could not be more wrong!

First, and most important, every Rottweiler puppy from the same litter is of the same health and beauty quality. They both have the same Mother and Father. One is not of better quality then another. Probably the second more common question I get is... I am not interested in a "show quality" pup, I am just looking for a family companion. All of my puppies are family companions!

Show and/or Working quality simply means the Rottweiler puppy is free of any disqualifying faults at the time of sale, and therefore, 100% correct. After all, isn't that what everyone is looking for when they go through a breeder? They want a correct full bred Rottweiler. When a pup is born correct, and has no disqualifying faults, he or she is "show quality". This simply means the puppy could go a show and would not be disqualified, because it was not born with any features out of the breed standards. No puppy of mine is required to be shown. To summarize, a "show quality" pup is a pup that is correct and in breed standards. This pup can be purchased for showing, working, breeding, or simply family companionship.

Pet quality means the Rottweiler puppy was born with a disqualifying fault that the breed standard says is incorrect. This can be something that you may or may not see. Some examples include missing teeth, an incorrect bite (the way the teeth line up next to each other), an incorrect color marking, etc. Keep in mind these faults are only cosmetic. Majority of disqualifying faults are not even visible to the untrained eye. Many backyard breeders do not even known if their pups have faults because they are not educated on the breed or have never shown themselves. These faults do not affect the dogs health. If any puppy is unhealthy, they are not sold. Being unhealthy is not a fault but a medical condition, and needs to be corrected. DKV Rottweilers will never sell an unhealthy Rottweiler puppies! All of our puppies are sold with health certificates.

We can only reserve "show quality" puppies in advance because that is what we expect to deliver. We do not reserve "pet quality" pups because there is no way to ever know if a litter will have a puppy born with a fault. If we do have a "pet quality" available, he or she is sold at a discounted price with a limited registration and no breeding rights. As a professional Rottweiler breeder, we want to keep the breed correct and always follow the breed standards. As a result, our "pet quality" pups are required to be fixed. We do not encourage others to breed a puppy born with a fault since this will ensure more offspring producing that fault as well.

In the photo below, one puppy is a "show quality" and the other is a "pet quality". Can you tell the difference?
