About Us

Over 20 Years of Loving the Breed

The Associated Rottweiler Fanciers (ARF) of Northern California was founded in 1992 for the purpose of bringing together Rottweiler owners, breeders and fanciers in Northern California to promote quality and responsibility in the breeding and care of the Rottweiler; to encourage sportsmanship at dog shows; to educate the public about the true nature of the breed; to educate people new to the breed about the proper care, socialization and training of their Rottweilers; and, above all, to have fun with our dogs. We are proud to have been recognized by the Senate of the State of California with a Resolution about our noble Rottweilers. ARF is a Code of Ethics club.

Check out our Facebook Page or see when our next meeting is happening at one of our Upcoming Events. In addition to our sponsored events, there are always ARF members around the Rottweiler ring at major AKC conformation shows. 

After having Siberian Huskies for 7 yrs. I got a Rottweiler puppy a female 32 yrs ago Cecil was her name and never looked back truly loyal,intelligent, loving, and just a easy dog to live with.
