Please note: 

After 20 years of maintaining the Esmond Rottweilers website, and these news pages, we will now work toward archiving it as a living history for our puppy owners, co-breeders and the fancy in general.  We thank everyone who has enjoyed our site over the years and look forward to you joining us on our new platform for 2021 and beyond at:



2020 Recap

2020 has been a unique year for so many due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  As families, businesses and schools around the world learned to adapt to this new reality, dog shows were also cancelled.  Those that went on had protocols adjusted.  Mostly we all stayed home and focused sqarely on keeping those we care about safe.

Because of the border closures, we also did not have an Esmond Litters or co-bred litters in 2020.  We hope to be able to announce a summer 2021 breeding between Vida and Chip, as well as perhaps one or two related breedings.  We thank everyone for your patience.

Despite all of this, our puppy owners managed to do truly exceptional things in the past year.   I hope you will all help me to celebrate these below:


Another great year for Pan!!!

Pan had a very short show season, but managed to bring home four more Best in Show wins in just four weekends out.  He finished as Canada's #1 Rottweiler, #2 Working Dog and #8 All Breeds!!!  Congratulations to owner Dawn Phillips and handler Lori-Ann Fischer!

Pan's niece Rayna (Ace/Beejus) also finished the year as Canada's #1 Rottweiler Bitch - owner handled by Lisa Boucher in New Brunswick!
