The American Rottweiler Club (ARC) was formed in 1973 to encourage and promote the quality breeding of purebred Rottweilers and to protect and advance the interests of the breed. ARC is the Parent Club of the Rottweiler. That means we are the only Rottweiler club to be a
Member of the American Kennel Club; we send a Delegate to their quarterly meetings and we are the owners of the
AKC Rottweiler Standard.
The ARC was instrumental in the founding of two, independent not-for-profit organizations: the
Rottweiler Health Foundation (RHF)and the
Rottweiler Rescue Foundation (RRF). The RHF promotes and financially supports breed health research and educates owners and breeders on health concerns of our breed.
