Tips for raising a Rottweiler pup
While easy to train, the Rottweiler can also be a bit slow. This doesn't mean the Rottweiler isn't a smart animal, rather it just means they want to see how much they can get away with before they need to comply to your commands. Therefore, it is easy to train your Rottweiler pup after you establish that you are in charge as long as you treat them right.
The first thing your Rottweiler pup needs to learn is house training. You will quickly notice that your Rottweiler pup needs to go to the bathroom every two to three house. It is best to crate your Rottweiler pup and take them to the littering place as soon as you take them out in order to house train them quickly.

The puppy will bite and sometimes pretty hard on whatever fits into their mouth including your feet, hands, furniture and everything that drops on the floor.

In order to train your Rottweiler pup not to bite things you will have to admonish them every time they are found biting things. If the pup bites you and doesn't respond to your loud vocal command then you should tap it with a newspaper roll which will be sufficient to deter any further attempts at biting you or other people.

There is a lot of work that goes into training a Rottweiler pup but it is worth the effort, as you will gain a lifetime companion in return.
