Myth 4: Rottweilers Can’t Be Trained
For their perceived danger, it’s not uncommon to hear that Rottweilers are impossible to train. In reality, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Just consider the breed’s history!
These dogs are descendants of a long-extinct breed that lived thousands of years ago. It’s believed that they accompanied Roman soldiers and guarded cattle. After that, they were known to use their strength to pull butcher carts.
Even today, Rottweilers play an important role in many professions.They can be service dogs, work alongside law enforcement, and assist the military. These pups have been working with humans throughout history. So, they are quite trainable.
Rottweilers are generally free thinkers. They like to do what they want when they want to. However, that doesn’t mean that you can implement training techniques. At the conclusion of the day, Rottweilers are dogs that only want to earn praise from those who they love.
