How to Avoid Rottweiler Behavior Problems

Rottweilers have developed a bad reputation for being dangerous.

The Rottweiler has a reputation for being a dangerous attack dog, but that is not their true nature. To be vicious, they must be trained that way. With the proper training and socialization from puppyhood, a Rottweiler is an even-tempered, incredibly loyal dog that will protect his family fearlessly. That makes the Rottweiler a wonderful watchdog.

The American Rottweiler Club tells us that “owning a Rottweiler carries a great deal of responsibility and commitment. It is not a dog for everyone. They require a calm, stable, and firm ‘pack leader’ or they will assume that role for you. They need socialization, exercise, and stimulating mental challenges. With these things, you will have a wonderful companion.”

Rottweiler behavior problems happen when they are not properly trained and socialized from an early age. Without the right training, your Rottweiler could turn into a challenging pet. You must teach your Rottweiler from puppyhood that the human is the alpha in the relationship. Be your dog’s respected leader. Begin training as early as six weeks old to help your Rottweiler establish good behavior before any bad habits can form.

Training Your Rottweiler

Training your Rottweiler is an ongoing daily commitment. It takes time and patience. In addition to learning to follow your commands, it is important to make sure that your Rottweiler is comfortable with other people and other pets. Social contact with other people and other dogs will shape your Rottweiler puppy into the kind of dog he will become.

During your training, make sure that you reward your Rottweiler with a treat, a toy or praise. If you get frustrated during the training process, walk away and come back later. Never show frustration and anger. This causes the dog to become fearful and discourages them from learning the command.

The secret to training is consistency. Everything must be black and white with no shades of gray. Otherwise, the dog will test you. If you let things slide, your Rottweiler will try to get away with whatever he can. You must earn a Rottweiler’s respect by setting boundaries and teaching him that there are consequences for his actions. You need to show your dog that you are in charge.

Training your dog from puppyhood will reduce the possibility of any Rottweiler behavior problems. But that is not to say that you cannot adopt an adult Rottweiler without experiencing behavior problems.

Adopting an adult Rottweiler can be easier than dealing with training a puppy. Rescue dogs have already been trained, and their personalities have already been established. There is no guesswork here – what you see is what you get. As an adult dog, any Rottweiler behavior problems would be on full display for you to see. When you meet an adult Rottweiler, you will be able to see right away how they interact with people and with other pets. So adopting from a shelter or rescue organization is probably the safest way for families with children to add a Rottweiler to the family.

Rottweiler Behavior Problems

Rottweilers may look tough, but they are a very sensitive breed. They are highly intelligent and they form a very close attachment to their humans. That means they can be prone to separation anxiety. Rottweilers do not like being left alone for long periods of time. They prefer being in the company of their favorite humans. So, if you need to leave your dog alone for long periods of time, you may experience some behavior problems.

Boredom is another source of Rottweiler behavior problems. These energetic dogs need a lot of exercise as an outlet for their energy, and their intelligent minds need to be occupied with distractions like puzzle toys. This is especially true for young pups who are bursting with energy. Without an appropriate outlet for that energy, you may experience behavior problems like chewing furniture and pillows. The powerful jaws of a Rottweiler can cause a lot of damage in your home, even at a young age, so make sure to keep your Rottweiler occupied with safe, appropriate outlets for their energy.

Socializing your Rottweiler should also start at a young age. To determine your dog’s level of socialization, start by introducing him to new people and pets while on a leash and see how your Rottweiler will react.

If your dog was not properly socialized as a puppy, he may never be completely comfortable around strangers and other pets, but you can teach him not to act aggressively toward them.

    Finding The Right Name For Your Puppy with PetPlace

     

Best Christmas Themed Dog Names

Christmas is just around the corner, and that means celebrating the holidays with friends and family. And for most, that includes furry family members as well. It may not surprise you to hear that Christmas is one of the busiest adoption times of the year for shelters and breeders. But sadly, after the holidays end, some shelters enter into their most active intake season, taking in pets after the holiday cheer has faded.

This Christmas season, we’re dedicated to helping more dogs find their forever homes than ever before. We agree that the holidays can be an excellent time to bring home a new furry family member; when one is fully prepared. Those who are taking a few days off from work can give their new puppy the time and attention it needs to feel happy in its new home. With the right preparation, you can make this holiday season merry for both the humans and pets in your life.

Are You Ready For A Christmas Puppy

We are in no way discouraging people from bringing home a new puppy for Christmas. We fully support adopting or bringing home a puppy from a breeder around the holidays; we just want to make sure that our readers are fully aware of the realities that go along with bringing home a puppy for Christmas. Three of the most prominent hurdles that we’re trying to help new puppy owners overcome this holiday season are puppy-proofing, basic puppy needs, and holiday safety. Each hurdle can present a serious obstacle, and if not taken care of, can result in a very not-merry Christmas. From Christmas trees to your Christmas feast, there are many inherent dangers that go along with the holiday season. As far as puppy needs go, we’re educating our readers with thorough breed profiles and comprehensive lists that will help you prepare for everything from vaccinations to selecting the right puppy food.

Once your research has been concluded, and you’ve decked the halls with all the supplies you’ll need to care for your new puppy, you can begin thinking about one of the most exciting responsibilities of bringing home a new puppy; naming! And what better way to honor the holiday season than to give your new puppy the gift of a Christmas themed name?
