Things To Do When Your Rottweiler Is Stressed
Dogs are the man’s best friend. If there is anyone who can be so loyal and loving, it will be the dogs. Rottweilers, for example, are known for their fearless-nature, being steady, good-natured, devoted and obedient. Seeing their characteristics can really put people in awe.
But what if they showed signs of being stressed, anxious or fearful of something? It would really be better if you put an action to stop it from happening.
Listed below are the things that can be done to save Rottweilers away from stress:
1. Point the Cause
It is impossible that our dogs are stressing themselves for nothing. There will always be a cause that can stimulate a dog’s stress. What you need is to identify the cause of our Rottweiler’s fear. It is important to have extra keen eyes on our pet’s actions. If you witness them barking non-stop into something or reacting fearfully when surrounded by specific things, you have to take note of it. It is also important that when things are uncontrollable, you seek the help of a professional.
2. Take Away the Cause
If you are exposed into the thing that stresses the hell out of you, wouldn’t you find it logical to just keep it away from you? This should also be applied to your dog. Once you’re able to identify the thing that stresses him/her out, it is a proper measure if you take it away from the environment where the Rottweiler is. Nothing is more comforting knowing that the thing that worries you is no longer there.
3. Don’t Rub It In
“Face your fears.” Normally, we hear that from other people. There may be psychological explanations that prove that it is really helpful. However, it is still different from Rottweilers. If they are not ready, don’t rub it in. Don’t make them face their fears. Their reaction can really be disappointing if you force it. You don’t want them to be aggressive, do you? Wait for them to be ready, in their own time.
4. Do Some Training
A proper training can help your Rottweiler in conquering his or her fears. But you have to know the proper technique that is applicable and perfect for your dog and for you. You can also ask help from professional dog trainers who definitely knows what to do to help your dog overcome his/her issue.
