Ross and Rottweilers

Despite working with and living with a vast array of breeds and types of dog and his love of pretty much all breeds of dog, Ross has a real penchant for the working Rottweiler. He currently shares his London home with three marvellous Rottweiler’s; Utz, Rohkh and Aiidh.

Utz, under Ross McCarthy’s tutelage has achieved his Kennel Club Gold Good Citizen Award, British Rottweiler Association Temperament Test Excellent on two occasions and has his Companion Dog Excellent and UD Working trials qualifications. This gives him letters after his name of CDEx and UD.  He has also passed levels 1 and 2 of the UK Tracking Dog Association tests and is trained in scent detection and criminal apprehension. 

Utz is a regular on the Dog Safety Education Executive  workshops, the CIDBT Dog Handlers and Professional Instructor Skills workshops. Utz recently appeared on Channel 4’s ‘Come Dine with Me’ and was used to jump over the terrified guests. View the film here. He is a firm favourite at School Educational Visits.

Rohkh has also qualified CDEx  and UD in Working Trials and has achieved his Kennel Club Bronze, Silver and Gold Good Citizen award and passed his British Rottweiler Association Temperament Assessment graded excellent on two occasions. Rohkh is also trained in Scent Detection.

Aiidh is presently three years old and is training in various working disciplines including Competitive Obedience and Working Trials. She has completed her Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Tests and is a trained scent dog on multiple substances.
