Make Your Rottweiler Learn To “SPEAK”

Rottweilers barking nature is inherited from their ancestors’ days in the wild. Sometimes it is observed that your rottweiler’s bark may become excessive and create nuisance not only for you but your neighbours as well. So, it is very important to teach your dog to first become “quiet” and then bark or “speak” when you command. Here, are a few training tips that you can carry out to teach your dog to speak.

Command Him To “Speak”

 Grab your dog’s favourite toy or a treat and hold it in your hand out of the reach of your rottweiler. The below-mentioned steps can help you:

  • Firstly, it is important to get your rottweiler’s attention. Then call out his name in a happy tone and show him his favourite stuff.
  • Prompt the command “speak” in a calm but excited tone. Give your dog some time to respond back and then repeat the command again by showing him the toy. You can also knock at the door if any treat is not working out.
  • Keep on repeating the command until he responds back to you. Once he does so, reward him with a treat.
  • Or withhold his feed until he barks for it.

Train Him Without A Treat

 If you find that your dog has mastered the command of “speak” as well, then try it out without rewarding him with a treat. This encourages him to listen to you even though you do not have a treat. You can also substitute the treat by praising him whenever he reacts to your command.

Train Him To Be Quiet 

It is important to teach him to be quiet. This can be done by using these simple steps: When your dog barks excessively on the ring of your doorbell, sit in front of him and try to grab his attention with a sound of a clap. Once he is looking attentively towards you, say “quiet” and throw him a treat. Try this out for about two to three times and then repeat it again for a few days, so that your dog masters this command.

Always be sure he has no valid reason to bark, rottweilers do not generally bark for no reason. Training your rottweiler requires patience and lots of hard work, for making him obedient and well mannered.If you are thinking to get your rottweiler well trained, then come to Coalfire Rottweilers.

Destructive Chewing In Rottweilers – Stop Them!

Rottweilers are quite inquisitive in nature and love to explore their surrounding. In doing so, they end up chewing random things present in your home. If this habit persists in your rottweiler, then getting rid of it as soon as possible will be a great idea. Here, are a few ways that will help you to fix the problem of gnawing or destructive chewing in your rottweiler.

Keep Calm

If your dog has already done his work by chewing on any random object, then yelling or shouting at him at that moment is not recommended. This has a negative influence on your dog and encourages him to respond in the wrong way. So, it is important for you to maintain calmness in such a situation.

Refocus Your Rottweiler Using A Treat

If your rottweiler is adamant and not wanting to shift his focus from the chewed object, then showing him a treat or his favourite toy will definitely do the trick.

Grab The Chewed Object

Boost up your energy and confront your rottweiler by letting him understand that the object he has chewed is yours and not his. This helps your dog to release the object instantly.


Opt For Safe Chew Toys

The habit of chewing in a rottweiler is seen from their puppy age. This is because when the puppy is teething, it tends to bite on whatever comes on its way. So, it is recommended that you purchase for safe chew toys and make your puppy understand that he needs to chew the toy and not on any random object.

Get Strict In Your Approach

If any of the above tricks does not work in fixing the habit of gnawing in your rottweiler, then it is wise tot ake up preventive measures, for instance, coat the furniture or any other items with a non-toxic material and keep your dog away from it. This deters his taste and thus, prevents him chewing on your objects.
