Here’s one topic we’ve wanted to cover for a long time. And it’s all about the question that we feel awkward asking a cynologist.

“We can’t kiss/hug/make love when our rottweiler is around. He gets in the way!”

True, rottweilers just don’t get our means of expressing love.

Sometime they think there’s a conflict happening, and do their best to separate the two people.
Some rottweilers start protecting one person from another.

All rottweilers react differently to our “strange behavior change”: some get anxious, others bark…
There are also rottweilers that couldn’t care less.

So, what to do?
Teach your rottweiler to go to its place (just remember that “Place” command should never be used as punishment!)

If you see that your rottweiler goes and lies down in its place throughout the day, give it some treats from time to time, especially if you’re in your bed and the rottweiler stayed on the floor.

If your rottweiler got into your bed, don’t reward this behavior in any way – attention included.
You can also teach your rottweiler the “Off” command.

You can also distract your four-legged friend by putting some chewing bones or toys on your rottweiler’s spot.

The teaching process:😊

At first make sure to not hug emotionally, to not provoke your rottweiler to start actively reacting to the hug, just let it get a bit alert.

Hug – and give your rottweiler some treats, you can put them straight on the rottweiler’s bed.
You stop hugging – the food is gone!

Slowly make your actions more and more realistic ❤️

You’ll only need a bit of consistency, acting and teamwork!
