05 Rottweiler: Aggressiveness/Protective Instinct

These traits vary with the individual dog to some degree, although all
have a strong territorial instinct and will defend their master's
home, car and property from intruders. Rottweilers have also been
known to bully or bluff their owners or other people, a trait that is
most disconcerting. This problem is easily prevented through early
obedience training and the development of a mutually rewarding working
relationship.

Many families have purchased a Rottweiler for its protectiveness, only
to discover that it brings with it a considerable moral and legal
responsibility. Problems arise quickly; the dog may not be able to
distinguish between a bear-hug greeting of a family member, or a
cherished friend, and the hostile advances of an intruder,
particularly if the greetings between parties includes loud shouts,
laughter or screams. Dogs must be carefully schooled to accept your
friends into your home but physical contact should be approached
carefully until the dog realizes that you belong. Strangers must never
come into your yard unannounced, the dog doesn't know the difference
between your brother and a burglar. Although the Rottweiler does not
usually bite without provocation, even being cornered and held by one
of these dogs is a very unnerving experience for meter men, delivery
persons or neighbors wandering into the yard while the owner is
absent. People expected to be in contact with the dog while the owners
are absent should be thoroughly familiar with the dog.
