Caroline Swirsky & Rottweiler Riggs

Communications Chairperson

I live in Mississauga,Ontarioand was a proud mother of one – Rottweiler that is.  I lost my special guy in February 2006 at the ripe old age of 12.  I now enjoy volunteering for the RCC and fostering Rottweilers whenever I have the opportunity.  I truly love this breed.

My interest in Rottweilers began in 1994 when I (reluctantly) went to visit a Rottweiler breeder about a puppy.  I must tell you that it definitely was not my idea and I was not thrilled about it one bit.  You see I wanted to have children someday and I didn’t think a Rottweiler could interact with children.  I can’t remember the exact moment I changed my mind but it had something to do with 8 bear cub like creatures crawling all over me and licking my face.  Needless to say, I fell in love – not only with my dog (Riggs) but also with the breed in general.  This is why I volunteer my time with the Rottweiler Club of Canada.

Over the years, I believe I have proven myself as a dedicated and responsible owner.  I hope that the work the RCC does will help educate existing and potential Rottweiler owners and breeders to follow suit.

I was the Treasurer for the Rottweiler Club of Canada from 1998 to 2006.  I have also helped out with the Rottweilers in Canada newsletter and helped organize an annual German style Sieger show in Ontario since 1996.

The Rottweiler Club of Canada was featured on CH Morning Live September 25, 2001.  During the 3 hour program, we had an opportunity to present the breed in a positive light.  I’ve had a few opportunities to be on television to speak on behalf of the Rottweiler Club of Canada.  I believe there is a lot to be said about our dogs that people need to hear.  This is one of the reasons I accepted the position of Communications Chairperson in 2006.

My goal is to never hear negative news reports about this breed again.  We can accomplish this if we all work together.  Thank you for your interest in the Rottweiler Club of Canada.  Your membership is important and if you are not a member yet – what are you waiting for?
