A lot of times you find your Rottweiler whining in some corner leaving you perplexed as to why does it happen. If you have been worried about this, we have good news for you. Whining can be one of the best ways for you to understand your dog. If you can learn the reasons as to why they do it, there are greater chances for your bond to strengthen and aid you towards better training.
Why Is Your Rottweiler Whining?
One of the main reasons why your dog whines is stress. Yes! Your dog too undergoes stress. Notice if your dog resorts to lip-licking, cowering, pacing, panting, low tail carriage, and the like. If so, start altering your training methods, their place, and your behavior towards them.
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.
6. Whining As A Result Of Good Training
Their whining can also be a result of your training. For example, whining when willing to go outdoors for potty can be a sign of good whining. Apart from this, any of the above reasons may be the bad kind of whining that needs to be rectified in your dog.
Pay attention to what you teach your dog and how they respond to it. Teaching them to whine over unnecessary issues can create a problem for you in the long run. Understand why your Rottweiler is whining and train them accordingly. These smart doggos will learn the correct behavior in no time!
