Rottweiler training is very important. These dogs were originally bred as guard dogs which makes them quite suspicious of strange people and situations. They can potentially be aggressive which we can avoid with training. Putting the time into training your dog will only benefit you both and lead to a great relationship between you.

5 Simple Rottweiler Training Tips

Training your Rottweiler may sound daunting, but it can be quite fun. Training also helps to improve your bond with your dog.

1. Socialization

Socialization is extremely important when it comes to Rottweilers. These dogs are naturally suspicious and need all the exposure they can get to be calm in social situations.

2. Start Rottweiler Training With The Basics

It might seem like a waste of time, but the sooner you start training the better. Puppies learn much faster than adults and are capable of learning the basics quite quickly.

3. Use Positive Reinforcement

Rottweilers, like all dogs, respond better to positive reinforcement than punishment. Using treats, toys, and yourself in training will keep your dog’s attention much better than when you punish.

4. Be Consistent

Training works best if you are consistent. Use the same command every time you want your dog to react in a certain way. Repetition is your other best friend, the more you do it, the faster your dog will pick up the command.

5. Incorporate Rottweiler Training Into Everyday Life

Dog’s are creatures of habit and that means that you will need to train absolutely everywhere to get them to respond properly. Just because your dog can sit indoors before being fed doesn’t mean it will sit when you’re on a walk and a cat runs by.

Training your Rottweiler from a young age will make life a lot better for the both of you, but that doesn’t mean you can’t train an old dog. Old dogs need more repetition to remember the command so you’ll require a little more patience.
