We are members of the Meridian Rottweiler League and the Kennel Union of Southern Africa. We are MRL Code of Ethics breeders and select for healthy and typical Rottweilers that are reliable, family friendly and always ready for action. Our dogs fulfil the roles of companions and guardians in our home and we exhibit at specialist club shows and selected all-breed shows held in our country. RV Rottweilers have received numerous top awards and placings under world-renowned judges. We have owned or bred six National Sieger/in and Youth Sieger/in title holders to date.
We believe in preserving the working qualities in the Rottweiler and regularly train and occasionally compete in the sport of IPO. We also participate in IPO seminars held by training groups in our province whenever possible.
Neil Perkins began his involvement in 1995 and is currently Chairman of the Meridian Rottweiler League. He is also the Chairman of the Rottweiler Breed Council of KUSA.
Neil is a qualified FCI Rottweiler specialist judge as well as an international IPO working judge.
Alex Varela bought his first Rottweiler in 1987 and joined the Meridian Rottweiler League the following year. He has served on the committee of the MRL and is the current Breed Convenor for the Rottweiler Breed Council of KUSA.
Alex is a learner specialist judge through the RBC training scheme and is qualified to judge the Rottweiler and Working Group at Breed Open show level.
We have endeavoured to establish a recognizable type through our breeding programme and seek dogs with distinctive qualities in their character and conformation. We have incorporated certain imported studs in the past and will continue concentrating on selected European bloodlines in the future. Our breeding philosophy is based on respect for the ADRK Breed Standard and an appreciation for the Rottweiler as a competent working dog.
Our interest in the breed is global and we have attended breed shows and sport trials in Germany, Spain, Canada, USA and Mexico.
Enjoy your visit and we appreciate contact and comments from all Rottweiler friends and enthusiasts.
