Don't forget about the tension rod in addition to the duct tape.

Don't get a Doberman if you ever want to go to the bathroom alone ever again.

Don't get a Doberman if you can't deal with dirty looks and muttered slurs against your dog and YOU for owning said dog.

Don't get a kelpie is you want an uber friendly "love everyone" type dog.

Don't get a kelpie with a plan to leave it in the backyard all day (This happens way too often, I'm not opposed to outside dogs so long as they get their needs met, but way too often, out of sight means out of mind)

Don't get a Berner if you don't:
...want a dog that loves the cold weather
...want a dog that leans on you
...want a dog that gives you it's paw every five minutes
...want a dog that follows you everywhere
...want a dog who doesn't have a long life expectancy

Don't get a Corvus if you don't enjoy having a dog that makes you feel inferior every.single.day.

He does...I swear. I see him look at him and I swear I hear him thinking about what lowly creatures humans are.

Don't get an Ares if you want a dog who will do obedience in the manner you expect.

Don't get a Morgan if you enjoy breathing while you sleep.

Don't get a Tyr if you don't want a shadow 24/7, if you don't want 50 pounds of dog sitting on your shoulders, if you want even the smallest bit of personal space.

Don't get a Nyx unless you have body armor, earplugs and a completely empty and indestructible room.

Don't get an APBT if you prefer the basset hound look. They are all smiles!

Okay I'll put my 2 cents in.

*If you ever want to have Home Owners' Insurance, don't get a Rottweiler.
*If you don't want to be accused of having a "vicious" dog, don't get a Rottweiler.
*If you don't want to have your dogs taken from you and euthanized for no other reason than the breed it is, don't get a Rottweiler.
*If you don't want people crossing to the other side of the street to avoid coming too close to you and your well behaved "vicious" dog, don't get a Rottweiler.
*If you don't want mothers snatching up their children so that your "vicious" dog won't eat them, don't get a Rottweiler.
*If you don't want to pay ridiculous licensing fees ($500+) in order to even own your dog, for which you will most likely have to keep under lock and key and keep muzzled when in public, don't get a Rottweiler.
*If you want the choice to spay/neuter your dog and not have it be mandatory, don't get a Rottweiler.
*If you don't want your dog deemed "dangerous" and/or "vicious" for no other reason than the breed it is, don't get a Rottweiler.
*If you don't want to be refused service at your vet, groomer, dog boarding facilities, denied housing and/or denied the ability to use your certified service dog, don't get a Rottweiler.
*If you don't want a dog that rarely lives past 10 years of age, don't get a Rottweiler.
*If you don't want a dog that will most likely get arthritis, cancer, cataracts, hips or elbow dysplasia or any other number of very expensive ailments, don't get a Rottweiler.
*If you are stupid enough to think that Rottweilers come in two varieties, German or American, don't get a Rottweiler.

Better yet,
JUST DON'T GET A ROTTWEILER!!!!!
The more this breed falls out of popularity, the better it is for the breed.

Oh yeah...

Don't get a papillon if you value your copy of Ender's Game.

Don't get a Border Collie unless you want an assasin in a fur coat.
