Club History

With the need to protect the interest of the Rottweiler breed, whether through maintaining high breeding standards or maintaining the Rottweiler’s reputation as a loving family pet and devoted worker, a small group of owners formed the Hoosier Rottweiler Club in 1981. Founding members were Dick and Carol Meyer, Tom and Elaine Reidy and Gary and Gretchen Thompson.

The Hoosier Rottweiler Club remains true to the founding members’ objectives. We strive to promote quality in the breeding of Rottweilers and to do all in the Club’s power to protect the interests of the breed. We are committed to the enduring legacy of this working breed, its public image and to maintaining a strong and committed base to preserve the right to own and love this most noble of breeds.

It was with this commitment to preserve the soundness and working abilities of the Rottweiler, that the HRC applied for American Kennel Club licensing in 1996 and held its first Rottweiler Specialty show in 1997. We welcome guests at our meetings, held monthly in the Indianapolis area.
