Good choice. They have personalities like no other breed.
Just socialize him to tons of people, pets and noises early on.
Rotts are attached at the hip to family and take extra work to not take the leadership role.
Especially the males.
Hit me up if you want any training tips. I've worked with rotts for many a moons.
A quick tip, if you didn't know...
Crate training so they sleep in the crate and are immediatly carried outdoors to pee a few times, until they walk to the door themselves is a fast way
to potty train him.
Wild dogs cant go in the den, so their perspective of their den(crate) is slowly expanded to include your house.
Makes it easier than just waiting for them to pee on the carpet.
