Greetings from ND

Hello, I came to this site after a quick google search for dog forums (Shocking), because I'm looking for reading and help, because I want to own a large breed of dog in a few months time, preferably a rottweiler. I've done a bit of reading around the web, and from what I see, they are loyal, loving animals that simply got a bad reputation in the past. That being said, I do understand that they are dangerous if not trained properly, so I've got a few books from different libraries on them and dog training in general, and plan to get a lot more, and know a handful of people that would be able to help me. Still though, I know this is not something to be taken lightly, so I came here for some extra help and know-how. That's all on that for now.

I'm a college student in North Dakota, and I enjoy football, dogs, camping, hunting, and all other sorts of activities. I'm not really sure what else to say, so feel free to ask!

Hi and welcome!
Any dog, big or small, is dangerous without training and socialization.
Just remember:
As much socialization as possible, not just as a baby but all throughout the dog's life.
Lots of exercise once the joints/bones are mature.
Mental stimulation is a must.
Lots and lots of positive reinforcement training (ignore anything that talks about "dominance" and being "pack leader"

Well, fair enough haha, but I suppose some might be more dangerous than others :P I want to socialize it with as many people as I can, because the plan is for it to be on a farm for a few months, then come to college with me. I plan on getting an off-campus house with a few friends, but if I can't, then this purchase gets put on hold. I won't make a dog that large live in an apartment. I plan on going camping a lot with it, as well as running often as well, along with general play.
