Training Your New Rottweiler Puppy!

If you are thinking of getting a Rottweiler puppy and you are a first time dog owner, you are probably concerned about the way to do proper Rottweiler training for your dog. Fortunately, there is not a whole lot of difference between the training methods used for each breed, so any general dog training guide should be able to help you. It’s most important that you establish early on (while your puppy is still small) that you are the one in charge, and that your puppy must learn to behave in a way that is calm and gentle, or you will have a GIANT out of control dog on your hands. Rottweiler puppies grow quickly, so your efforts early on in your puppy’s life will pay dividends for as long as your dog lives.

The first thing you will want to do, even before you bring the puppy home, is to decide where in the yard your puppy is going to be doing his toileting. Potty training is one of the most stressful parts of puppyhood for some people, but it shouldn’t be that way, and it doesn’t have to be that way. If you establish a simple and clear routine for your puppy from the first day you bring him home, your potty training efforts will be much easier and less stressful. First of all, when you get back home, before you bring the dog inside your house, take him to the spot in the yard that you have decided he should use, and put him down. Stand up and tell him “Go potty”. Do not play with the puppy. If he wanders outside of the general area you want him to use, bring him back, put him down and repeat the prompt, “go potty”. As soon as he does his business, praise him and pet him. From that moment forward, he will associate that area of your yard with toileting, and it will be easier for you to get him to do what you want him to do.
