Welcome to GowenHaus Rottweiler Kennels.

Located in Northwestern Lower Michigan, we're a rottweiler breeding kennel striving to breed some of the finest rottweilers in the world.

Our breeding stock comes mostly from Germany along with a few other European countries. We've searched and continue to search for the best dogs and purist bloodlines available, so that we breed dogs that will be able to compete and win in all events - show and work.


Here at GowenHaus Rottweiler Kennels, we believe in the total rottweiler and every rottweiler should possess all these qualities:

Mental Soundness
should be of sound/stable character, predictable and sensible, have intelligence, sense and ability to distinguish between threats and non-threatening situations
Physical Soundness
A rottweiler should be physically sound to perform agility and endurance work. Should possess correct- proper structure and bone to have ability to perform physically demanding work.
Although we'd like to see this as number 1 -it would be a great injustice to the breed to do so. So we try to breed dogs with all three of these attributes- to give a" complete rottweiler". This is the "ideal rottweiler"!
Rottweilers must possess a good drive to have the desire and ability to do work. Rotts without drive can not be complete rottweilers either. The rottweiler was bred to be a "working dog,” a lazy dog won't work!

We must all strive to breed the best rottweilers that have the disposition to confirm with the society of today.  With the problems of a few poorly bred, mis-trained and unsupervised rottweilers, their reputation has suffered almost irreparably.  After all, what is good is a beautiful crippled or crazy rottweiler that attacks everything or licks every stranger it sees?

We believe in keeping the protective-guarding instinct with good training and socialization development of the rottweiler.
