Rottweiler Dog.

Like the mythical Greek hero Hercules, the Rottweiler is strong and true with a loving heart. Affectionately called Rotties or Rotts, the breed originated in Germany, where it was used to drive cattle and pull carts for farmers and butchers. That heritage is reflected in the Rottie's broad chest and heavily muscled body. When he moves, he displays strength and stamina, but when you look into his eyes you see warm, dark-brown pools reflecting a mellow, intelligent, alert, and fearless expression.

A well-bred Rottweiler is calm and confident. He's typically aloof toward strangers, but never timid or fearful. Rottweilers exhibit a "wait-and-see" attitude when confronted with new people and situations. When these characteristics come together as they should, the Rottweiler is a natural guard dog with a mellow disposition who is successful not only in police, military, and customs work, but also as a family friend and protector.

Rotties have a natural instinct to protect their families and can be ferocious in their defense. It's essential to channel their power and protectiveness by providing early socialization, firm, fair, consistent training and leadership, and a regular job to perform. When this doesn't happen, Rottweilers can become dangerous bullies rather than the companionable guardians they're meant to be.

Rottweilers walk a fine line between protectiveness and aggressiveness. If they aren't carefully bred for a calm, intelligent temperament and properly socialized and trained, they can become overly protective. That might sound like what you want, but a Rottie who lacks the ability to discriminate is dangerous to everyone he encounters, not just the bad guys.

You must be able to provide your Rottweiler with leadership he can trust and respect without resorting to anger or physical force. Otherwise, he'll take the role of top dog for himself. With a dog as powerful and intelligent as the Rottweiler, this is a recipe for disaster.

Despite what you might have heard, Rottweilers are not temperamentally unsound or inherently vicious. Well-bred, well-socialized Rotties are playful, gentle, and loving to their families. They are easy to train if treated with respect and make great companions.

As wonderful as Rottweilers can be, they aren't the dog for everyone. You must not only be dedicated to training and socializing your Rottie, you must also deal with people who don't understand the breed and pre-judge it. Because of bad or tragic experiences with Rottweilers or other large breeds, some cities have banned the breed. It's unfair to judge an entire breed by the actions of a few, but it's a reality you will have to deal with if you own a Rottweiler.

You can do your part to redeem the reputation of the breed by training your Rottweiler to obey and respect people. Most important, don't put your Rottie in the backyard and forget about him. This is a dog who is loyal to his people and wants to be with them. If you give him the guidance and structure he needs, you'll be rewarded with one of the finest companions in the world.

The ideal Rottweiler is calm, confident, and courageous, never shy. He has a self-assured aloofness and doesn't make friends with people immediately or indiscriminately. Instead, he takes a wait-and-see attitude with new people or situations. With his family, he's affectionate, often following them around the house. This is not a highly excitable dog. He has an inherent desire to protect his family and property, but should never be aggressive toward people without cause. The Rottweiler is smart and adaptable with a strong work ethic.

You'll see some differences between the sexes. Males are quiet but watchful, constantly assessing their surroundings for threats. Females are somewhat easier to control and may be more affectionate. Both are highly trainable but can be stubborn.

Rottweilers require firm, consistent but not harsh discipline. A sharp word is often a sufficient reprimand, but only if you've clearly established your leadership. If not, he may try to bully or bluff you. This is not a dog for people who lack assertiveness or don't have time to devote to training and supervision. Earning a Rottweiler's respect involves setting boundaries and teaching consequences for inappropriate behavior, both of which take time and patience.

Temperament is affected by a number of factors, including heredity, training, and socialization. Puppies with nice temperaments are curious and playful, willing to approach people and be held by them. Choose the middle-of-the-road puppy, not the one who's beating up his littermates or the one who's hiding in the corner. Always meet at least one of the parents — usually the mother is the one who's available — to ensure that they have nice temperaments that you're comfortable with. Meeting siblings or other relatives of the parents is also helpful for evaluating what a puppy will be like when he grows up.

Like every dog, Rotties need early socialization — exposure to many different people, sights, sounds, and experiences — when they're young. Socialization helps ensure that your Rottweiler puppy grows up to be a well-rounded dog. Enrolling him in a puppy kindergarten class is a great start. Inviting visitors over regularly, and taking him to busy parks, stores that allow dogs, and on leisurely strolls to meet neighbors will also help him polish his social skills.

Don't forget the past, the end of the world is upon us! Pretty soon it will all turn to dust!

Have big FUN ! !

PROFESSIONAL CAR WHEEL FOREMAN.................








 















 

How to properly handle car tires and in fully professional way........................

 Every Rottweiler needs playtime and exercise to stay healthy, strong, and in shape. So if you aren’t doing anything at the moment, how about tossing your dog their toy, or taking them for a walk. It will certainly keep the both of you happy and healthy.
Every dog will need a daily run, remember the Rotty is a working dog by nature and genetic influence. So a walk is necessary every day however you can also add some of the following activities into your routine, to make certain that your Rottweiler is tired by bedtime.



Moderately active Rottweilers will appreciate a couple of 10- to 20-minute walks each day. They also enjoy playing with balls and going hiking. More energetic Rotties may need longer exercise times and more structured activities. Their athleticism, intelligence, and trainability make them well suited to agility and obedience competition, as well as tracking, therapy work, and their traditional job, pulling a cart or wagon. Perfect for parades!

When training your Rottweiler, keep in mind that he thrives on mental stimulation. He likes to learn new things and is eager to please you. He might be willful at times, with a "Show me why I should do this" attitude. Be fair, consistent, and firm, and your Rottweiler will reward you with his quick ability to learn.

GARDEN EXPLORING FUN.







Just round my garden.

The Rottweiler is a strong, obedient, confident breed of dog. They are very loyal and willing to please and are completely versatile. They can qualify for many different types of jobs. They are not just great dogs for herding and guarding, which they are most widely known for, but also are great for police dogs, search and rescue dogs, and guide dogs for the blind or disabled. Their intelligence and good natured disposition makes them a great dog who can handle just about any job you give them.

The Rotty ancestor soon became a well known guard, particularly for the travelling butcher, he guarded the meat, money and even the butcher himself from potential thieves. This is when the Rottweiler got their first name, the Rottweil Metzgerhund, or Butcher’s Dog. Rottweil is a town in Germany where the Rottweiler first became utilized by the Germans. Eventually the Butcher’s Dog became known simply as the Rottweiler.

BEDROOM MEDITATION.............



Meditation times............
............your Rottweiler’s favorite seat in the house happens to also be yours. Can you blame them? Why do we like to sit on the furniture? Because it’s comfortable, right? Would you lay on the floor given the opportunity to sit on your comfortable couch or easy chair? No! What makes us think our dogs are going to feel any differently?

Then how, if our furniture is so comfortable and inviting, do we keep our dog from jumping onto it whenever they feel like being comfy too? How do you handle them jumping in our chairs when we catch them? Let’s look at the facts and figure out how to keep them off the couch.


Your dog wants to lay on the couch because it’s cozy. They also want to lay in your favorite chair because it smells like you. It is a comfort to them to be laying where you sit. This does not make it ok for them to do so.

You need to create a place for them to call their own. A place where they can feel warm and cozy. There needs to be an area in your home or in each of the rooms your dog has exposure to that is designated for their comfort where they can feel safe. Your furniture is so inviting because it’s comfortable, so make sure you have a blanket or a pillow they can call their own to lay on and be happy and comfortable. Keeping a blanket or pillow in each room your dog has access to can help prevent the desire to get on the furniture.

.............would like you to look at yourself when you think that your dog’s behavior shows dominance. As loving dog owners we often teach a dog to behave in a certain way without even knowing it. We fuss them when they jump up or fail to train them properly whilst on the leash.

If you have a Rottweiler that guards possessions or even a space on the sofa then ask yourself, have you ever backed away from his guarding behavior? If so then you have taught him that it works, that by behaving this way he gets to keep the resource for longer. This type of guarding is all too often described as the act of a dominant dog leaving the dog completely misunderstood, when really the dog is only doing what he has learned to, in his life so far.
You do not need to establish dominance over your Rottweiler, you simply need to understand and communicate with him in a language that he understands. Surprisingly the usual rules for dominance training will actually cause confusion in your dog’s mind, because he is not a captive wolf and neither are you.

If the behaviour of your dog is challenging then it is vitally important that you understand exactly why he is doing it. By learning about canine communication signals, calming signals and signs of stress or anxiety you can get a really good idea of why your dog does what he does.
