Does anyone have any experience with owning a rottweiler and cats? What was your experience?|
Reason I'm asking:
For most of my life, growing up, we had a dog, a medium size mutt, and a cat. After our cat died we got 2 new kittens. I don't remember us doing any special training with our dog to get her to be ok with having a cat. And she had no problems accepting the two new kittens. We never really had any issues with the dog and the cats.
I know friends who've had various breeds of dogs, just no rottweilers, and cats without problems, and without doing any special training with their dogs.
I've been thinking about getting a Rottweiler when I get a house on my own, as well as getting some cats. I've read about how to train Rottweilers do not go after cats, but after hearing about a friend of a friend who had a cat and then took in a Rottweiler who showed no problems with the cat for months, and then one day killed it, I'm wondering if it'd be possible (good idea) to leave a Rottweiler home alone with cats, the way we used to leave our dog home alone with the cats, or if I would always have to keep them separate when I'm not home.
