I had Maike at a PetsMart once (of course many years ago). She was on a down stay, and. little boy was petting her like crazy. The Mom came up and asked a bystander (many were enthralled with the scene) what kind of dog it was. As soon as the woman said it was a Rottweiler, the Mom jerked her kid up and ran like crazy. The kid had been there five minutes or more with Maike. So no, I wouldn't subject a Rott to that kind of hysteria.
