Points, skeleton, internals of Rottweiler

Organization of the body

Points

Points are single parts of dog body that are of great importance when working abilities and exterior of a dog are evaluated. Below you can see an illustration that will help you to identify advantages or disadvantages, deficiencies and abnormities in the breed’s representatives.

Skeleton

Structural features of the dog’s skeleton also affect the development or absence of disqualifying deficiencies in the dog. The abnormalities in framework structure of fore and hind limbs or scaffold of skull may be observed especially often in the Rottweiler. Scaffold of skull determines not only exterior of the dog but has effect on its guard abilities. So, for instance, the narrowness of the jaws is detrimental to stiffness and strength of snatch in Rottweilers. Atypicality of the scaffold of the skull may result in the dog’s disqualification.
