Hi my name is Brenda and I live in indiana, We recently got a Rottweiler puppy, Bella is 3 1/2 months old. Her behavior is a little agressive and I am inexperienced at training a Rottweiler. She is very spoiled of course but I am not sure how to train her when it is not okay to bite but I want her tobe protective but not agressive trying to find the balance here lol.. She is most agressive during play. She is not agressive towards people that come to the door or anyone that knocks. She is very friendly.


How can I curb her aggresive behavior or is she just being a "puppy" and will calm down? She likes to bite though during play and barks quite a bit when she doesnt get her way.I know this is the best time to train her. I came here seeking some advice. Thank you

The best way to make your puppy protective without being aggressive is to socialize them at every opportunity. Teach them that the world is a wonderful happy place and you will be less likely to get an aggressive dog.


Take them to places when they are little that has lots of people. Farmer markets, etc. You don't have to teach a rotti to be protective of his home - it comes naturally. You need to teach them commands like "Enough" "Come" "Settle" etc to turn them off whether too rough of play or possible protectiveness.


Get them playing with other dogs to get them well rounded and happy. Have them interact with children (always supervised). The earlier you start this the better.

Thank you for all your advice. I have an older dog Cloey who is just a cute mix of we dont know what lol. But mama Cloey has curbed her when she gets to agressive. I had read on here the NO Bite command and that is what I have been telling her. We used to have a shepard named of all things Shep lol, We lost him last November. Hehad a fatty tumour that turned to cancer and with his age, 14, The vet didnt think surgery would prolong his life. I still miss him very much, He was my protector and my buddy. He saved my life once, I had taken him with me to the store. I was working 4pm -2am I dont know whyI went home and got him first but a lot of woman were coming up missing in the area and as I was coming out of the store he went ballistic trying to get out of the car and was darn near out when I said Shep whats wrong.I turned and this man was right on my heels but when he realized the dog was coming after him he turned real fast. Needlsees to sayhe gotsteak for breakfast. I felt safe with my buddy. My husband, there is a chance he could get sent overseas and I wanted a dog for proctection. I have fallen head over heels with Bella, as I do all pets we have 4 cats too lol. I am glad I found your forum though as I am not experienced in training a Rottweiler. A few of my friends are a little leary of her because of all the myths. I beleive it is in how you raise them.
