  • Latest News

  • A Rottweiler Natural Bobtail survey was conducted by Dogs Australia last year to ascertain feedback from all owners of registered Rottweilers as Dogs Australia follows the Country of Origin breed standard and given that the gene involved is an incomplete dominant there is the possibility of bobtail parent/s producing long tail offspring. Only the long tail offspring are eligible to be placed on the Main Register.

    The response received indicated support.

    As this was an amendment to current regulations, the result of the survey was referred to the Dogs Australia Board of Directors for consideration at their June 2022 Special Board meeting where it was endorsed.

    Consequently, the following new clause will be added to Regulations Part 6 – The Register & Registration which will be effective from 1 January 2023:

    8.9.2 Effective 1 January 2023, any Rottweiler born a Natural Bobtail will be eligible to be registered on the Limited Register only and flagged NOT TO BE UPGRADED.
