Hi all. I'm a new poster here to this forum. There is a lot of great information, thanks for sharing. I currently have a 17month old female Rott, named Elsa. She lives with our family of 2 adults and 3 kids. She has been a wonderful addition to our family, and we all love her. Elsa is not the first Rottweiler I've lived with. I was raised with them from a young child until I married. I have loved this breed since I was in grammar school, and I hope to help improve this breed and others knowledge of it. So now on to my question.<?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" />

When talking to other Rottweiler owners most of them agree that the Rott will use its front paws like hands.

When Elsa is playing with a beloved toy she will roll on her back and take the toy between her two front paws and play, and admire it. I find it adorable. But on the other side of this behavior, which is unacceptable doggy behavior, she puts her paws on humans. An example would be, I'm sitting down and call her to me. She comes excitedly and sits immediately. But after she sits she will put a paw on my hand or leg. I tell her "Off" in a stern voice and she will comply. I've been told that this is a Rottweiler trait. Or is it simply dog behavior, does anyone else have this issue?

Thanks
~Kim

Dallas does it all the time. That is how she catchs balls when you throw them up. She will not use her mouth. She is always giving me her paw. If she needs something she puts her paw on my hand or leg and looks at me like "you forgot again". Blu uses his paws to just not as much as Dallas.

Shell-


From my understanding, those with their dew claws attached will do fantastic things. Does Dallas have hers still?

Thanks to you all for the warm welcome.


You know I never taught Elsa to geve her paw. Our instructorask me why I was teaching her that, and I told her I wasnt, nor was anyone in our home. I dont think she believed me though.


Kitty-You have your hands full. I'm sure they are lots of fun together
