Rottweiler Training Tips
by: Jenn

Wow Hayley, it sounds like we have a very similar story. Raised our girl Savannah from a pup and she was very well trained.

Rescued Chevy and. . .well, you know ;0)

First off, bless your hearts for rescuing Riley! I really had the same problem with Chevy, and have to still work at it to this day!

Couple of things you can do. . .
1. First make sure that you have a pocket full of small treats, and a collar and leash on him.

2. Teach him the basic "come" command by saying "Riley, come" and only say it once. Immediately after saying it, give a quick light tug on the leash and the second he comes to you lavish him with praise and a treat.

3. Keep practicing that with the short leash several times a day, then a longer one if you have one (even a piece of rope, doesn't really matter).

4. You never want to give the command if you can't enforce it (I know that cute little look all too well by the way ;)

5. So, when you actually have his attention, say the command "Riley, come" and give him a treat. Do this randomly in between practicing with the leash on.

6. Keep randomly giving him the command (even when your sitting watching TV), and have a treat for him, but then start alternating whether you give him a treat or not.

The goal? With the leash on, he actually learns what "Riley, Come" means, especially after lots of practice, then he learns that when he hears that command, he's probably going to get a treat.

Then he learns that he may get a treat, he may not. But, by that point he really knows what to do, and won't likely risk not responding, just in case there's a treat :0)

When using the longer leash or rope, keep introducing more and more distractions too, so that he responds to you regardless of what's going on.

I sure hope this helps, keep me updated and don't hesitate to ask anything else.

By the way, I would love for you to tell Riley's story at my Rottweiler Adoption page (That's where I put Chevy's story)

Hey again.
by: Hayley

Just popped back to add a few more pics of Riley and to have another look trough your great gallery, love the puppy pics :) Reading through the training, I was just wondering if you could give me any tips with my dog as he can be a bit stubborn when I call to him, sometimes he just lays or sits there with the cuttest expression on his face and ignores me. Help. He is the second rottie I have owned, my other rottie was more responsive as I trained him from pup, but Riley we rescued a few weeks back and he only knows the basic commands i.e: sit, wait, lie down. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. :)

Afternoon Jennifer
by: Hayley

Just been browsing through your pictures and story, How heartwarming! What wonderful pictures of your beautiful dogs. We will be sure to keep checking this site and keep you updated with our pictures and progress. We really don't understand why rotties are demonised so much when they are gorgeous, loyal soppy animals.

Riley
by: Jennifer

Hayley,
Chevy is an absolute freak for water, and unfortunately we haven't had an opportunity to take him to the Ocean, just lakes, rivers and his plastic pool :0)

We did take our girl Savannah years ago and I will never forget when the water came up behind her when she wasn't looking -- LoL

As far as socializing Chevy, I should probably say that almost everything was "difficult" with him in the beginning, because of his past.

His only saving grace was he was a complete sweetheart, even after being treated badly by humans :0(

We were very careful and deliberate when introducing him to new things and people, and still are actually. But, it really just took time, patience and love to get him where he is today!

You can read a short version of his story on my Rottweiler adoption page, and an even shorter article/story based on him at EzineArticles.com

I sure hope to see more pics or Riley as he grows up -- such a cutie :0)

Thankyou :)
by: Hayley

HI Jennifer, Thanks for adding my other photo. LOl yes I agree with the "total ham" comment. Our dog gets to let loose on the beach at least once a day, although he is gaining his confidence with every passing day, he still runs away from the tide as it rolls in :) He does like the water just not when it's coming to get him. Did you find it difficult to socialize your older rottie?

Both Pics Added Together
by: Jennifer

Hi Hayley, I added both pictures to the same submission, so instead of 2 different submissions, you now have 1 submission with 2 pictures :0)

I would love for you to add some great stories about Riley to my Rottweiler Stories page too. Rotties are just such characters. . .

My boy Chevy is usually such a ham, and never ceases to make me smile and laugh!

What a doll!
by: Jennifer

Oh my goodness Hayley, thank you so much for sharing Riley here at Rottweiler-Facts-and-Info.com!

What a beautiful Rottie - Look at that face, just the sweetest thing.

You are so right too, that they are so very smart and love to learn and please their families. People really don't know how wonderful of family pets they make, but as you well know -- they do!

Thanks again for sharing, I hope you'll share more pics as Riley grows up. It happens so quickly :0)
