Things to Avoid When Training Your Rottweiler
Dog Training is something that you can simply jump into. If you
choose to train your dog yourself instead of taking him to a
professional trainer, be prepared to do some work! Here are some
things that you need to make sure that you DO NOT do as you train
Training your rottweiler is certainly an experience, but it is
certainly necessary. The most beneficial aspect of training (besides
the obvious obedience benefit) is that it provides an excellent
opportunity for you and your rottweiler to bond together. You will
grow close and establish a relationship that is rewarding and
So, as you read various training books, articles, and how-to’s, and
maybe watch a few training videos, you will not only need to be
conscious of what you should do, but also what you should not do.
So, here are three mistakes that people commonly make as they
attempt to train their dogs.
The first mistake is simple: many people start by treating their
rottweiler as an issue that needs to be worked on, rather than
helping or teaching a friend. Though it may sound a little silly,
this is your time to establish a good relationship with your pet.
Though your dog does need to know who is boss (and it needs to be
solidly established from the start of training), they also need to
know that you are their friend and you want to help them and care
for them. This is best shown simply through your actions and tone of
voice with your pet.
Another common mistake is inconsistency. This most often occurs when
people are ill-prepared and do not have a plan before they begin
training their rottweiler. If people are either not sure of how they
want to train their dog, or what they want to train their dog in
first, it becomes very easy for them to be inconsistent. Choose one
area (such as chewing, jumping, barking, or begging) to work on
first, and then move on to other things. It helps if the owner is
consistent and does not simply ask their rottweiler to do too many
different things at once.
The last addressed common mistake rottweiler owners make as they
begin to train their dogs is that they are simply too impatient.
Please remember, change takes time! Just as it takes you, your
spouse, or your child a little while to change, know that your dog
is no different. Change will happen and progress will be made; it
truly is simply a matter of time.
As you embark on this training adventure, remember to keep these
tips in the back of your mind. It is normally pretty easy to
remember what you should do, but it is sometimes harder to remember
what not to do. Good luck as you begin to train your new rottweiler
puppy! They will appreciate it, and so will you.
