Hi Guys, I think the owner didn't potty train the puppy right from the day he was brought home. I brought a two months old Lab puppy last week. On his first day, I kept the dog with me in my room and whenever he would wake up at night I would take him out in the varandah so that he can relieve himself. The puppy now know that he shouldn't pee in the room where he sleeps. Yesterday night at three o clock midnight he suddenly started barking in the room I took him out and found he wanted to do potty! Now, having said that, this won't happen always and accidents can happen as puppies have weak bladders and they may not able to stop on some occasions. Now whenever he relieves out side I praise him and offer some treats- example of Positive Reinforcement as quoted by Dinker.
There is nothing misleading in what Dinker said. Rottweiller does need early socialisation. It should be encouraged to know his surroundings, know the people living with and around him, whom he should be nice to and whom he should be nasty with. Lack of socialisation can make Rottweiller very unmanageable and utterly destructive.
