My 1 year old rottweiler bitch does not bark at strangers

by Mr M George
(Mumbai, Maharashtra, India)

My Rottweiler bitch is 1 yrs old now, and she does not bark at strangers coming into the property or the house. While in playful mood she does bark, however when kept to guard she doesn't.

We have huge property and right in the center we have our house, so we have her(rottie)in the kennel(next to our house) from where she can look around the property and house better.

please suggest what could be the reason for such behaviour.

Awaiting your valuable feedback.





Hi Mr. George
Rottweilers are slow to mature, at one year old your girl is still a puppy and her guarding instincts are still developing.

This breed is very intelligent and discerning and is not indiscriminately aggressive. When mature they are generally able to decide for themselves whether someone is a threat or not, and act accordingly.

Don't try to encourage her to bark or act defensively or aggressively as this will confuse her and will interfere with the normal development of her guarding instinct. I really just recommend that you continue to love and train her so that she is secure and confident in herself and obeys your commands. Then just be patient and wait for her to grow and mature into an adult dog.

It sounds as though she has the correct temperament/attitude and if you or your family is ever threatened she will know what to do. I hope this puts your mind at rest and I wish you the very best of luck with her.

Best For The Breed
by: Anonymous

Do not try to "bring out" aggressive behaviors in any dog, let alone a breed already undergoing a tremendous amount of strife because of poor handling. You want a guard dog who knows WHEN it's appropriate to bark and defend, not one who indiscriminately barks or intimidates innocent strangers. They have a natural instinct to use "bullying" or intimidation with stock. Why would anyone WANT to scare people who don't have bad intentions? It's because of this type of thinking that Rotties have such bad press. The comment asking for advice on how to bring this out really bothers me. A lot. Do some serious research. Please!
