Well my rottie. Bronx, has developed this habit of banging his face on the floor at shadows, I blame the few times way back in the day when he saw a lazer on the floor. Its really something to see, he just hunches over and puts his muzzle facing the floor and pounces, on his face, thankfully no damage has occured, but its quite annoying seeing this 2 yr old rotti bang his face of the floor. I have not let anyone show him a lazer in atleast 1 1/2yrs, and yet he still insist on head banging the floor. Crazy dog. any suggestions? I have one, Don't show your rotti a lazer, who knows what mental disorder they will develope. lol.

Everyone thinks this is so cute when they are puppy.I know a Rottweiler that riped the inside of a brand new pickup to shreads,because the dog was taught to follow light,laser or flash light.


Once they start this I'm not sure you can stop them as they are very driven to get that sorce of light.

And now its turned to pecking at his shadows, mostly when the kitchen light is on, he can see his shadow or any other shadow in motion and he dives for it, he is ok for stopping when I catch him, but when your in the kitchen making food and you hear and feel banging going on its hard to stop. But he is still maturing and he knows its not what he is supposed to do so hopefully he will aventually get occupied with some other nutty behaviour.


But yes your right, lasers are not funny when they get big. I will never let one of my pets see another laser, thats for sure.

yes, its something else to see, he arches his back and faces the ground and then bang! people who come over and see it think its a riot, but when you live with it its not as funny.


I just hope Brookie, our youngest pup, doesn't see it and think its a new game they can play, generally as of this moment she just seems to think he is mental, and goes about he own thing. I am suprised she doesn't try to find what he's ramming his nose into. lol.


If one thing good comes out of it, is that it does still occasionally make us laugh. haha.

Thats why we have these guys,they are always looking to make us laugh or if you have ever trained a dog in Obed it's very humbling(you never know when you walk in the ring what they are going to do to embarass you).

Thats so true, in classes we were one of two people who had a rotti and we ended up beside each other all the time and they just wanted to say hi to each other all the time. I will say that I am glad we had the rotti we have, because the other one just didn't seem to be interested in listening to his owner, but looking back it was all on the owner, he just didn't seem to pick it up, he just let the dog do what he wanted and then when he would bark he would give him a treat to be quiet, well anyone who knows dogs knows that when you reward them they pick up the behaviour. But atleast the guy wasn't a yelling jerk or anything. I guess you have to find the balance between disipline and scolding. They sure know the differance.

Ihave to disagree we have on boy his name is Mav'rk very handsome,but not to swift.He doesn't care if it's praise or disipline.


If you give him praise for doing something right he runs around and acts like a fool.If you yell at him he runs around and acts like a fool.This boy is in his own world and is having a great time at it.



We yell platz so much that the Blue and Gold Macaw now yells platz when we are trying to get him to lay down.It's too funny.If the dogs are playing he yells it.If they bark he yells knock it off or shut up.(but it'ds okay for him to screem his head off)



It's a zoo here but theres always something going on.

It must keep you going all the time. I am actually in the process of seeing if I can adopt another puppy, another pitty, so that would make 3 dogs, fish, bird, and 2 iguanna's, but the iguanna's have a new home to go to soon. I am looking to save a pup its thru advocates for the underdog, and they have 5 litters of pups that people thought would be cool to have there pitty have pups and now they all need homes. what is wrong with these People. But if I get a new lovable little pup out of it it works for me.


thats all my rotti needs, another pup to fawn all over. He loves dogs/puppies, but only for breakfast, just kidding, he is a great dog, no aggression towards other dogs at all, I guess its the confidence a rotti usually has.

Well first of all "Good luck" on sunday.


Wow sounds like a riot at your house. I love having animals around, more so than some ppl, They keep you laughing and keep ya on your toes, thats whats so fun about it, never a dull moment, never going through a day without them showing you they love you to death, the good is far much more than the bad.


I find the only bad thing about large breed dogs is the people you encounter on the sidewalks, some ppl just don't know how to act, I have had a child barking at my dogs from across the street while her mom is with her and not telling her to stop. Not that my dogs would run over and maul her but how did the mother know my dogs are well trained. I just wish parents would teach kids young about dogs and how you act around them, if that were the case the dog bites would most likely decline. Thats the only way to stop BSL, education, but I am sure you know that! Specially having 8 rotts, I don't need to tell you anything, you could probably tell me a thing or two or three. lol

<DIV>I read this on another list.It would be great if evey city did this(don't know where she lives)</DIV>
<DIV></DIV>
<DIV></DIV>
<DIV></DIV>
<DIV>Sincethere has been so much discussion on dog bans, I thought I would share what I just read in my newspaper. My city is trying to put into effect an "vicious dog" policy. This is what it says:</DIV>
<DIV></DIV>
<DIV>Irresponsible pet owners would be held accountable for keeping dangerous dogs and could be banned from owning dogs, under a proposal drafted by a citizens committee. The Committee drafted recommendations dealing with vicious dogs, placing the onus for controlling vicious and "high risk" animals on their owners. The Committee believes that any breed of dog can be trained to be gentle, kind and loving and any breed of dog can be trained to be mean and vicious, therefore, the Committee believed the responsibility for a dog's behavior lies with the owner. An attorney on the Committee said,"There are pit bulls and rottweilers that are perfectly calm, nice animals if they are trained to be such. What we wanted to handle was irresponsible pet owners. We have made policy recommendations regarding that."</DIV>

It would be nice if all communities saw that pits and rotts are not as bad as people would have you believe. I know for a fact those two breeds can surely be raised to be good dogs, I am proof of that, I don't like the big dogs cause they are mean, I love them because there is so much more there to love. When will the government see what it is doing is killing off a breed because of ignorance. Its not right, and hopefully it all gets reversed with the lawyer helping, right now they banned pits, next will be the rotti's. Ignorance is Deadly for PitBulls

I agree totally about APBT.


I am a UKC Judge and I just finished optaining my licence to Judge APBT.When I Judge that breed I get licked in the face by all of them they are great dogs in the right hands.The people that own them are really deicated to the breed.They all stand around with their dogs (sometimes in cramped quarters and there is no fighting.)


I had an order in for a little Am.Staff a few years ago,but in the end I opted for another Rottweiler.They are great dogs and who knows some day I could own one also.

I can tell you the two breeds, atleast my dogs get along so well, they are lost with out each other.


I wish the ontario gov. would have listened to the people like you whospoke out for them. The Rottweiller Club of Canada is even speaking out against all of this. But not one of the people in power was brave enough to take a stand and save the three breeds they want to ban. If they don'tlisten to the people who know dogs best well then there is something wrong with how this passed. I appologize for always talking/writting about it, but its all I can think about when I see my babies together. Maybe oneday people will focus on the real problem(s)

Now the media can be the worst for making people fear our types of dogs, and just thursday there was another pitbull attack,and it was with a rotti, well my first guestion, why the hell are those two dogs running off leash in a city like hamilton, the dogs apparently were nipping and jumping at a little boy, the mom was protecting her kid and some passers by got the dogs off of her, and now the rotti is at home with its owners and the pitty is going to be put down. I am so so so sick of irrisponsible owners specially owners who have these dogs and are making it worse for me. This is riduculous! I don't believe anyone who can't control their dog should have such a power house breed. Hell they probably shouldn't even have a lap-dog.


These people who are just letting their dogs lose need to get with it, this is not the way people should act. The dogs are taking the fall. Its never the humans fault...

People just do not understand our rotts. I have seen time and time again, kids antagonizong them, throwing rocks at them and doing just about anything to get one riled up. That causes most dog bites. And ofcourse some owners that have them for only 1 reason. My rotty on the other hand, does not like strangers and might possibly bite them. We take precautions, he is always either locked inside of a 1-acre pen (we have no neighbors around to bother him now after moving from a big city where many did try to bother him) or else we keep him in a locked cage inside of a locked garage if we have company. With us (his family) he is like a big baby. We love him dearly and show him that. Now, since this section is supposed to be stories or humor about rotties I have a cute one. From the time we bought him until he was about 7 months old we had to keep him inside (parvo had been in the yard years previous so we had to wait until he had had all of his shots and given a little time after) and he had to use the bathroom in our kitchen. As soon as he was finished we would immediately tackle the mess with clorox cleanup and paper towels. One day he was left in the kitchen unattended for about 10 minutes. I walked in there to find the cutest site. Zeus, our rotty had gotten in the trash can after doing #1, got out some paper towels and tried to clean his own mess up. I seen him just sitting there looking up at me while the paper towels was over top of his mess. Was the cutest site ever!!! Rotties are so intelligent!

Now if they would just clean up all their other messes huh? Now that would be a big achievement wouldn't it, but that is too cute though! Oh yeah and by the way welcome to our club
