Can anyone recommend a shampoo that suitable for puppy rottweiler that has short coat?

 

Also, would appreciate any grooming checklist, such as perhaps bristle brush?

Hi broncho, your Rottweiler puppy doesn't need to be washed very often. Too much washing removes the protective oils from their coats. For when they get really dirty a gentle shampoo like Aloveen (an oatmeal shampoo) is great. Generally any dirt just brushes off when dry.

 

Rottweilers have a double coat consisting of a fine undercoat and a courser top coat. You don't want to remove the undercoat as it helps them to regulate their temperature. Over brushing or combing will damage their coats. Rottweilers moult twice a year in summer and winter. As puppies grow they will lose their puppy coat at about 6 months old.
