The Rottweiler is not just a type of guard dog, it is a special guard dog. Of course, both sheep dogs and dogs of some other breeds can be good defenders.
But if you want to have a friend, one kind of which inspires respect, which will not allow anyone to steal something from you or harm you, which always remains calm, calm and reliable, the first thing that comes to mind is a large guard dog. .
Tell us more about the Rottweiler breed - guard dog, its description and character.
The Rottweiler combines the power and impressiveness of ancient dogs with the dexterity and responsiveness, so necessary, for the protection functions. This is the only dog, having looked at that, we understand that we are safe. Beast, killer, scary dog - such accusations can often be heard in the address of the Rottweiler. Which of the following is true?
Absolutely nothing when it comes to this breed of dogs in general. Killer dogs do not exist. There are only not reasonable and bad owners. However, each dog (see dog breeds with photos) individually can be dangerous. You need to understand that the dog becomes evil at the behest of the owner. But the Rottweiler can become dangerous if the owner can not force him to obey. In other matters, the above applies equally to the poodle, to the dachshund and the Dalmatian. The only difference is that the rottweiler bite is much more painful.
But the dog is not to blame for the fact that it is big and strong. The owner must understand what responsibility he bears for this large dog. After all, he can be aggressive. Mainly, those who do not like rottweilers love to refer to it. And yet we clarify one significant point. Aggression is not at all a vice, but a natural trait of any animal creature, including man. When training guard dogs to this line should be approached with caution, but in any case not to suppress it.
Consider two typical situations: for example, a sudden movement of those around the owner perceives a dog as an attempt to attack the owner and reassure her. In another case, the owner is indeed a witness to the attack, but the dog does not interfere. She is waiting for a clear command to rush in pursuit of a criminal.
Who can blame such an animal for cruelty or uncontrolled aggressiveness? We presented you the same Rottweiler, in the same environment, to prove to you that the ability of the Rottweiler to protect can be both dangerous and beneficial to others. The thing is whether the owner is able to control his dog, forbidding her to act independently and directing her actions in any situation.
To this topic, we will return. But first we have to figure out what we mean by the ability to protect. This is a natural gift, a gift. It was formed by combining some of the characteristics inherent in all dogs. But it is especially characteristic of those breeds for which this quality was developed specifically.
As we have seen, the guard dog must be aggressive and belligerent. In addition, it should be well-trained and easy to tolerate pain. But is it all enough? Of course no. A dog must have an incentive, to put it simply, it must want to protect its owner. But would this desire arise in her, if the Rottweiler, in fact, were a beast, seeing in man the enemy? Of course not.
A dog is able to protect only two things: what it considers its own and what it loves. By the way, the Rottweiler regards as its property the territory in which it lives. Therefore, he is a great watchman. But for this the owner must certainly love his pet. Therefore, it is pointless to talk about killer dogs. Rottweiler is very loving. Being a puppy, he happily rushes into the arms of the owner and his entire family.
The rest is completely dependent on the person. If from childhood to teach a puppy to the company of strangers and friendly treatment, he will always be affectionate to others. If you keep him in isolation and make it impossible to recognize the world, then later he will see the danger in what seems unfamiliar to him - be it a person or a thing. Unfortunately, many believe that too sociable or friendly dog can not become a full-fledged guard or protector. But they are deeply mistaken.
The Rottweiler is a guard dog and does not have great mobility; therefore, one cannot expect from it the same agility and ease to climb, which is inherent in smaller and graceful dogs. To compensate for this heaviness, you must constantly force the Rottweiler to move. A Rottweiler who likes to work does not seem to be a heavyweight creature. To achieve this, you need special training based on the game. Such trainings are conducted by school experts. It is even better if the training area is located near the water. During workouts, the body temperature of the Rottweiler increases significantly and only bathing will relieve it from overheating.
