Not a problem. The info was good. I just wanted to add my comments on the web site for anyone who might go there.Sylvia, I didn't look at the breeder's website, just the article on Becoming the Alpha. I thought the article was very good, and even though there are several threads addressing this topic, I thought that this info. would be good for the new members with puppies to read, especially if this was their first rottweiler. I apologize for not looking at the website more thoroughly before posting this article.
I let Rocky sleep in my bedroom and i never have any problems.Rottie1984, I didn't know about the bedroom part when we owned other breeds: boxer, beagle, weimaraner, irish rat-tail spaniel, and lab, we always let our dogs sleep in the bedroom, but that stopped when we got our rottweilers.
Jan, Yaela was the sweetest dog I ever met, not at all assertive, but had a ball/prey/chase drive off the charts! She would chase the wheels on shopping carts. There were also odd times when we would be in a store or the bank and she would see someone and try to lunge at them and go woof!
Tiffany is very assertive and protective. We were standing on the driveway yesterday and a UPS truck drove by and she started barking at it! She watches anyone and everything that goes by. If she hears someone outside, she barks, whether she is inside or outside. Tiffany has solid ball/prey/chase drives, just not as extreme as Yaela's.
LOL, that is too funny Colleen!Our Maddy barks all the time too, it drives my husband crazy! He threatens to put a bark collar on her, but hey, she's 11 years old. What is driving me crazy lately is Chaos will be dreaming and start this low whine, which turns into a howl at around 4:00 every morning, and this gets all of 4 of them howling, even the puppy! This has been going on now for about 2 weeks. Anyone have any suggestions?
