A rottweiler is a very caring and loving breed of dog. They easily get attached to their owner and love to get their attention always. Anxiousness is not a strange behaviour for any dog, rottweiler is no exception.
We are sure you would not want your pet to stay unhappy, so it is very important to watch out for different signs of anxiety and get it treated as soon as possible. In some cases, natural remedies work to treat anxiety, but when you are not able to, it is advisable to see a vet.
One of the most natural anxiety seen in a rottweiler is the separation anxiety. First, let us discuss a bit more on the same.
What is Separation Anxiety?
As the name suggests, this type of anxiety can be observed in your rottweiler puppy when he is left to stay alone.
It has been observed that due to separation anxiety, your rottweiler might become more aggressive or destructive in nature. For instance, if left alone he might chew on anything causing damage to your personal items, or even develop howling and barking.
What Do Professionals Say
A rottweiler or any other dog might experience separation anxiety due to excessive trauma in the past or it might be in their personality itself.
Cure To The Problem
Most people think that the best solution to cure this type of anxiety is to not leave your dog alone for more that a minute. But, this is not true. We all have got other work to do as well that cannot be avoided. So, the potential solutions for curing this situation are:
- Before you leave your rottweiler at home, we advise that you should give him ample exercise and keep his toys near, so that he can chew on them.
- Avoid paying attention to him when you are getting ready to leave, this helps them understand that you have got some other priorities to attend to as well.
- Lastly, but less obvious, you can get another canine for your rottweiler to have company.
Apart from the separation, a rottweiler might experience anxiety due to other reasons that include, illness, aging, change in the circumstances, etc.
What Do You Need To Look Out For?
Due to anxiety in your rottweiler, he might not only show a destructive nature but also might suffer from diarrhea, obsessive barking, not participating in any playful activity, hiding or tucking his tail.
When you are not able to find any solution to all these behaviour, we would advise you to take your Rottie to a vet and seek help.
