Myth 3: Rottweilers Aren’t Good With Kids
While the previous myth would make you believe otherwise, Rottweilers are perfectly fine with kids if they’re raised right. Training a pup early on is key. If you set boundaries, a Rottweiler can become a wonderful family dog.
In fact, they are known to be fiercely protective of their loved ones. This includes children. Many of those high-profile dog attacks involving children were entirely preventable.
When you have a Rottweiler and small child, it’s important that you’re always keeping a watchful eye. It’s also crucial that you teach your children how to behave around dogs.
Kids don’t understand how to properly interact with canines. They pull on tails, try to climb on their backs, and grab their faces. Many of these acts are serious triggers for dogs. This doesn’t just apply to Rottweilers.
Dogs of any breed can handle lashing out at children. It doesn’t matter if it’s a fierce Rottweiler or a tiny Pomeranian. When you push the dog’s buttons, attacks are bound to happen.
