I just found your website. I'm 80 years old and have a 6-year-old Rottie that I had when I was 6 weeks old. Khan is such a sweet boy that I castrated him when he was 6 months old and he thinks he's a lapdog. At my age I can do anything to that dog, it's just a love bug.
I also have a Doxie and had a 15-year-old dog that I only had to sleep with boohoo. I think Khan gets along well with everyone because I've had so many different types of dogs that makes them young, making sure they're neutered and giving them a lot of love. They are incredible dogs, I just received a second one, a female, she is about 6 months old and she is so affectionate that I have had her since she was 3 months old. I love rotten things and so does my vet.
I just brought home a 10-week-old Rottweiler puppy. Thanks for the article, I had some doubts. I have a 3-year-old female Rottweiler. It's a wonderful breed, very loyal and loving.
He's the friend of my 10-year-old son. He is obedient and loves family. Let him move freely in the house complex, after 1 year I let him move freely, I didn't put him in the kennel. He is kind and listens to the teacher.
I've had 5 rotten people in the last 40 years. It's the best dog, I want another one, since I just lost my 12-year-old baby to a heart attack on December 26th. Nice Christmas gift. My Pomeranian is heartbroken, she's still looking for him around the house.
I had a blanket in my room at night, all I had to say was Toby Nite Nite Time, and he got up. If I stayed up late, he would come looking for me, I thought he wanted to go out, but he just stood there until I turned off the television and followed him to the bedroom. I was telling myself it was quite late, so go to sleep. I miss him so much that he was wonderful.
I had rescued him from a shelter. Thank you for letting me continue. Rottweilers can sometimes be fans of parties at the dog park. While some dogs love to have fun and mingle with other dogs, some Rottweilers prefer to be left alone and may not tolerate the rebellious behaviors of the average hyper Labrador or Golden Retriever.
A number of Rottweilers aren't park material for dogs, and this is mostly true once they reach social maturity. Some may tolerate dogs of the opposite sex, but may react aggressively to dogs of the same sex. An aggressive or belligerent attitude towards other dogs of this breed should not be blamed, according to the American Kennel Club standard. While how you raise your dog is an important factor in how you approach strangers, every dog is different.
If your Rottie comes from a long line of guard dogs, it's likely that he has an increased protective instinct. Training will help, but some Rotties are naturally more wary of strangers than others. With patience and constant training, you can teach almost any dog to be kind to strangers. Many Rottweilers are blessed with outstanding temperament and have proudly become service dogs and therapy dogs, while, on the dark side, several have been ruined by indiscriminate breeders and negligent owners.
Equipped with an inherent desire to protect the home and family, Rottweilers can take the role of guardians very seriously, especially when left outdoors with the responsibility of protecting property. First of all, I would like to introduce you to the temperament of Rottweiler dogs - this will be important in the future. Temperament, Personality, Training, Behavior, Pros and Cons, Rottweiler Tips and Information, by Michele Welton, Dog Trainer, Behavioral Consultant, Author of 15 Books for Dogs. So are Rottweilers the ruthless animals that portray the media headlines or are they happy dogs, family dogs? As with any other dog breed, the predisposition to aggression in Rottweilers comes down to genes and individual temperament.
Training your Rottweiler to accept strangers can take a long time, but it's ultimately worth the reward. However, there is one thing to keep in mind: Rottweilers have a great desire for prey and can get terribly excited when they see a small animal. The above characterizations apply to well-trained Rottweilers who have been socialized with other pets and people at an early age. Pitbulls are generally considered to be more aggressive than Rottweilers, mainly because they have long been used in dogfighting.
Because of their reserved nature, Rottweilers don't easily make friends with others until properly introduced to them, but they are exceptionally dedicated to their owners. If you follow these steps, you must turn your Rottweiler into a loyal puppy that respects its owners and knows what it means to behave appropriately. But, in general, the Rottweiler tends to respond quietly and with a wait-and-see attitude to influences from its environment, such as strange images and sounds. Although this breed reacts to its environment with great alertness, the norm requires a wait-and-see attitude; basically, the ideal is for Rottweilers to think before reacting to stimuli from their environment.
You may have heard scary headlines about Rottweilers from time to time, but you may also have heard statements from people who own them that describe how kind and caring they are. . .
