    How to Train Rottweiler Puppies for Sale

    Articlegeneral dog adviceThursday 07 April 2011

    Rottweilers can make brilliant pets but there is not doubt that they need to be taken on by people who are experienced with owning dogs as big, as intelligent and as potentially difficult to handle as a Rottweiler. That said though, Rottweiler puppies will turn into very loyal, loving and friendly family pets. To find out how to train Rottweiler puppies for sale, read on. 

    Training a Rottweiler


    • Rottweilers were originally bred in Germany to fulfil a number of roles including herding, guarding and for pulling carts. The history of the Rottweiler has meant that Rottweiler puppies will grow into very strong, very clever, independent dogs.


    • Rottweilers have natural guarding instincts and form incredible bonds with their families but it is vital to ensure that Rottweiler puppies are correctly socialised with other dogs and humans from a very young age. A well socialised and well trained Rottweiler will be a fantastic pet. Make sure that Rottweiler puppies know they have to play gently and reward them when they do.


    • Rottweilers, especially male Rottweiler puppies can have dominance issues in their adolescence and this needs to be carefully managed to stop it becoming an issue. Making sure you eat your meal before the Rottweiler has his and ensuring you go through doors first etc will help to establish a hierarchy. Involve other members of the family within the training regime of Rottweiler puppies so that the dogs know they are below all the humans.


    • When you buy Rottweiler puppies for sale, you need to begin their training as soon as you can so that they learn basic commands. Toilet training should be first on the list and then basic commands such as come, sit and heel etc. Like all dogs, consistency is the key to training Rottweiler puppies. Rottweilers are eager to learn so reward based training is usually the best option, with corrections rather than punishment.


    • It is a very good idea to attend puppy training sessions early in the puppy’s life so that it picks up the basic commands and also gets to interact with other dogs and people. Lead training Rottweiler puppies from a young age is vital.
