for the life of me,I can't understand why my 2and half year old,female,unspayed Rottie lunges at people and becomes uncontrollable around other dogs.Do you think it has something to do with her being the product of Schtuzund dogs.It seems that I've tried everything.I'm totally frustrated...can anybody help.

Has she had any training?Did she have alot of socialization as a puppy?These big dogs need a lot of that,or they become the aggressive dogs.Dogs should never be people aggressive.


Have you tried a prong collar on her.They really do work.


Talk to a trainer near you and expain your problem,they might work with you one on one.


Spaying would help.

When are people going to realize that Rotties need training lots of it .....they are to big of a dog to not do it ! if you don't go to a trainer or don't have one near you ......buy a book on training and stick with it . consistencie is most inportant thing with a dog , no hitting ! I've never hit one of my dogs ! I've owned Rotts for 25 yrs..........praise and reward are a owners best friend in training your dog . Schtuzund is a type of training in tracking , obedience and protection.( not a type of breed of Rottweiler) . and if your dog has that type of training it should not be doing what she's doing ........... I'm sorry but it seems to many people are buying Rotties and have no clue what they are all about ..... cute puppy ..........BIG DOG

Schtuzund is a sport.but again pepole who breed for that sport breed for high prey drive.Something a pet does not need.


Try to get some training on her and more socialization.It will take time but it will be worth it.

I agree, Rotties as well as certain other breeds of dogs need training, structure, and dicipline as pups. Not to mention the "biggie"--Socialization! Otherwise they tend to be dog aggressive and territorial more than normal. Itoo suggestyou talk to a trainner maybe even a dog behaviorlist

I agree with all who said that rottweiler(all dogs) need to be worked with from the time you get them from your breeder. The early the better. I started taking my pups with me very wheres I went for the 1st year. If i was going to my friends they would go and play with their dogs too. Now I have 3 very well rounded and 3 have MANNERS...I have resuced 15+ rottis in the last 8 years and seen it all..And older dogs can learn new tricks so get them in a training class or pick up a training book to learn how to change older dogs. I know it is very hard to change older dominate males, some can't be changed, I know 1st hand.
JUST SO THEM LOSS OF LOVE AND TAKE YOUR TIME, SO THEM YOU CARE IT WILL WORK...

Yeah everybody here is telling you straight listen and heed their advice and you won't believe the difference in your big baby. Stucture, Training, and always Socialize. You really won't believe it how much she will change.

Thank you all for your input...However,I have gone over and over again my training issues when it comes to my female Rottweiler.I am a trainer,myself and know all the things that you have submitted as suggestion. I have come to the conclusion that...IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO EXAMINE AND THINK OUT THE ADVICE GIVEN YOU BY OTHER TRAINERS.I went to a seminar in PA,once,and the trainer impressed upon us to never let anyone touch your dog...and to ignore any behavior that you don't wish to have your dog do again...and now,I remember when Boogey Baby started to lunge and I ignored it.Bad,bad,decision...but now I'm doing damage control and she is coming along nicely,Thanks...yawl. You never can learn or experience enough about dog training.

I have heard and seen a few people us this method of training,I don't like it.I think it works on small issues,but there are some things that need to be delt with now.


That is how I train.You do something wrong there is swift disopline and then we move on.I also train dogs at a local kennel club.and you are right you can never stop learning.
