2. Appeasement Towards New Encounters

 

Your Rottweiler may be seen whining when they meet a new person. Lack of confidence in your dog can make the new person seem like a treat to them. Consequently, they will tuck their tail, hold their ears back, start crouching and tossing right and left, avoiding eye contact, and will turn away from them. If such situations occur, seek professional help and teach your dog some confidence concerning meeting new people.

3. An Expression Of Excitement

Often uncontrolled excitement in your dog can make their body wiggle and whine. They can be seen crazily jumping and barking around. In this case, you need to train your Rottie self-control and use methods like mat training for calming behavior.

4. Constant Need For Attention

Rottweilers are always in need of your attention. If you leave them alone, you may find your Rottie whining. The best you can do here is to ignore their demand and give them cuddles only when they are quiet.

5. Pay Attention To Their Pain

Your dog whines terribly when in pain. Notice if they are moving up and down the staircase and putting all of their body weight on one leg. In such a case see a vet immediately.
