Welcome to Icehaven Rottweilers
See LITTERBOX for available Rottweiler Pups.
Welcome to Icehaven Rottweilers where we showcase our KUSA Registered Rottweilers. We are situated in Crestholme, Durban, South Africa. We also assist our clients by arranging transport for pups via air and/or road to most destinations in South Africa and to other countries. The usual transport rates will apply (for flight and/or road transport) which is usually in the region of R600 to R700. We sell crates for transport of puppy for appoximately R400.
We offer transport both internationally and nationally to the following areas as well as others which may not be listed (please enquire with us):
Johannesburg, Cape Town, East London, George, Bloemfontein, Kimberley, Port Elizabeth, Ladysmith, Polakwane.
We are very pleased to announce that we have transferred our web hosting to http://www.icehavenzone.co.za. Icehaven Zone Web Hosting & Design can make up a website for potential clients in under a week and a five page site usually costs between R1000 and R2000 and hosting of between R60 or R90 per month which is a extremely reasonable price. Email them for further enquiries if you are interested.
We have been involved with Rottweilers since 1999 and are well known for the remarkable and loving temperment of our dogs. Most of our clients are referals from clients that have purchased from us previously. Our dogs will only be sold to those who understand the breed and treat our Rottweilers as part of the family. A great deal of people are of the opinion that Rottweilers are simply there to be kept outside and do "guard duty"! When obtaining one of our dogs they are to be treated as a member of the family as you will find Rottweilers are very sensitive, loyal and loving companions. In fact our Durban vet, Craig Mostert of Kloof Village Vet has told us he believes that Rottweilers are the Number 1 family dog. Most of our Rottweilers are sold to family homes with children.
When we do have pups they are well socialised and a great deal of time and energy is spent raising them and providing them with a healthy start in life both emotionally and physically. Our pups are whelped inside our house where they spend the first three weeks of their lives and thereafter they go into fully covered outdoor kennels with concrete floors. All our Rottweiler breeding stock are tested for Hip Dysplasia and only bred from if they meet the hip score requirements set by the Rottweiler Breed Council and Kennel Union of South Africa.
We don't believe in aggression training at all and will not sell to security companies or someone who has expressed an interest in aggression training.
It is extremely important to raise your pups on concrete floors as parvo is the number one killer of Rottweiler pups. You can clean concrete floors with HTH and Jeyes Fluid but if your pups are raised on grass (although it may look nicer) - they are at risk every single day as parvo remains in the ground (grass) for months and months.
Icehaven Rottweiler pups are raised only on WUMA!!! Nothing but WUMA!!!

We believe that the proper nutrition is essential to give your Rottweiler puppy the best start in life. We would prefer our clients to keep their pups on one of those products at least until Rottweiler is 18 months of age. We deworm our Rottweilers with either Drontal or Prazifen every two weeks from date of birth.
When you buy a Rottweiler from us you will get a "care sheet" which sets out how to raise a healthy pup and what to watch out for if your Rottweiler gets sick. We expect our clients to strictly adhere to that.
Although we love meeting prospective owners of our pups there are people out there who think it would be nice to drive to the Rottweiler breeder for a day's outing. We don't have the time to waste with people who aren't ready to buy their Rottweiler and we would like to ask that you research the breed you are interested in fully and are absolutely positive that you are ready for a Rottweiler pup BEFORE coming to see us. Everyone deserves a weekend off and we would like to fall into that category also.
All prospective owners are requested to complete our BOOKING FORM. This form is non-obigatory but it helps us understand what your requirements are. Once this form is completed we will send you a contract which you can complete and return to us together with proof of booking deposit which is approximately 25% of purchase price. At that time your booking will become final and you will be allocated a position on the waiting list.
If you choose not to pre-book your pup with us you are welcome to still complete our booking form and we will advise you once the pups are innoculated and ready to go at which time you can view them.
Many people ask me how they can differentiate a "real" breeder from a "scam artist" as many people have deposited money into scammers bank accounts and never received their dogs. Well its pretty simple. Call KUSA - Kennel Union of South Africa - verify the membership number - 146928. We also have a Facebook page and you are welcome to join and meet other clients online - who have received pups from us. We can also provide copies of all our dogs KUSA registration documents and hip dysplasia free certificates and both authorities can be contacted to establish their authenticity. Generally if it states in an advert on the internet (for South Africa) that a dog is registered with an OVERSEAS REGISTRY - you are probably dealing with scammers.
