Urban, hobby breeders of health cleared, titled Rottweilers.
Braxenburg Rottweilers are committed to the betterment of the Rottweiler breed. 

Our dogs are pets first and title-holders second. 
We do our part to present a well-behaved dog to the public.  

Berlin, Jade & Charlie

Our breeding program consists of Rottweilers titled in conformation/performance events, health cleared/tested and all possess stable temperament.   Titling and proving breeding stock through trials is paramount to producing excellent dogs.   
Our dogs are socialized in the penultimate urban environment.  I consistently train and socialize my Rottweilers to be excellent ambassadors for their breed.

We consistently produce type, substance, soundness in mind and body, not forgetting the loyal companion.  We are very selective when breeding and do not produce for the sake of income.  All of our puppies are raised in the home and well-socialized from birth.  We offer top quality show prospects and companion puppies (sold on non-breeding contracts) to approved homes only.  Whether it is a companion or a show quality Rottweiler, we stand behind all of our puppies for life with written guarantees and full owner support.  To that end, we breed rarely.

As you will see from the dogs on our website, we have owned/shown/produced many Top winning Rottweilers in Canada.  We show all our own dogs ourselves.

We have been in the breed since 1992, and the Rottweiler has been our first passion.   I love researching pedigrees and have an extensive library of Rottweiler books, periodicals and magazines from German, Russian to Finnish.

On a personal note, Adam & I both work and live in the heart of the city of Toronto.   I work in an executive capacity in the health care field and my husband, Adam works in fraud detection at a large Internet Registrar.  

We share our home with a small toddler who is a Princess-in-training, multiple Rottweilers and a cat scattered amongst the bunch.   We are saddened to report that we had to say good-bye to our faithful and wonderful Maine Coon Cat, Chewbacca in January 2011 due to complications from lymphoma.  He was an amazing cat and tolerated our Rottweilers with the utmost dignity.   We will miss him terribly.

RIP Chewbacca

We recently welcomed a new purebred, TICA Reg'd Ragdoll kitten from Pride Ragdolls in London, ON and can't wait to see how this little guy grows up!

Jade & Yoda, Bubble Hunting
Yoda has grown into a ginormous cat.  He is so dog-like that it's uncanny.  He's been raised with about 4 different Rottweilers - some of which were never introduced to cats previously.  Yoda cares not.  ;)  He's helped to raise a litter of Rottweiler puppies, a toddler and several adult Rottweilers.  To his detriment, Yoda has no fear.  He drives us batty at times and I occasionally swear at him - however our home wouldn't be the same without him.

We have spent the last couple of years travelling the world and loving each trip .. El Salvador, Panama, Central America, Cuba, etc ... with baby in tow.

Adam & I @ Mayan Pyramid, El Salvador

After years of dating, we were married on a 115-foot private yacht on Lake Ontario; in Toronto.  
Our officiant is a member of the Humanist Association of Toronto.

It was an awesome year of planning ... fireworks (not-so surreptitiously planned on Canada Day to coincide with the Symphony of Fire!!), 650 roses, candy bar, Snapz Photo Booth, and 100 family/friends to party with.  We had guests from coast-to-coast as well as the United Kingdom fly in for the big event.   Our wedding even made it on a few websites.  It was an incredible day from beginning to end.

Baby Jade was a total surprise!  She decided that it was a great time to join us just after we got engaged so we went from initially planning just a wedding to planning for a baby and a wedding.  

We welcomed our baby girl, Jade in 2009 whom we just adore and dote on.
