There is a whole host of reasons why a pet store is a bad place to get a pet and it is an especially bad place to get a Rottweiler. You should always get your Rottweiler from a reputable Rottweiler breeder and someone that not only takes the time to breed and care for your dog before you get it but also teaches your dog the basics of surviving in a home environment before you even take it to your home. There are a lot of really good reasons to avoid pet stores and the list gets longer every day.
The many different humane societies have a phrase for the place where pet stores get their puppies, and that phrase is puppy mill. In a puppy mill dogs are bred in unclean conditions and are kept in large numbers in cages in some dirty back room somewhere. They are fed and watered but they have no human interaction.
Then the puppies are pulled out of a cage and sent to a pet store and sold to you. This is just the beginning of the pet store horror story.
When you get your Rottweiler puppy from a Rottweiler breeder your breeder will start you off with detailed care and feeding instructions that you can use to make sure you are giving your dog everything it needs. A breeder took the time to get your puppy used to living in a home setting and has tried to get your puppy used to the clatter and excitement that goes on every day in the average home.
A pet store clerk is there to ring you out and take your money. They usually know nothing about your dog and can offer you absolutely no advice that is going to help you in raising and caring for your dog. Your puppy has only seen people through the grate of a cage and has never been outside their cage so your home will be a brand new, and potentially terrifying, experience for your pet store puppy.
If you get your Rottweiler puppy from a reputable Rottweiler breeder you can pretty much be sure that the puppy is in good health as breeders check for disease and any health issues. If there are problems later on the breeder will work with you to solve them.
To a pet store a puppy is a product supplied by a puppy mill. They have no idea if the puppy is healthy and, honestly, once you pay your money they do not care either. Your chances of getting an unhealthy puppy from a pet store are very high.
Until people start to realize what is really going on there will always be dogs suffering to bred more puppies just so pet stores can make their profit and grow their business.
