My Harley


I fell in love with Harley the first time I saw him. I have always admired the Rottweiler and knew one day I would have one.

I'm learning very early on that they are smart, but a lot of work. I love to walk, but Harley seems to have a mind of his own. I guess he would rather be "riding" instead. We just entered the "barking" phase and he is 3 months old. If I walk away, he barks constantly. I'm trying to learn the "potty" bark, or the "bored" bark or the "hungry" bark but they all sound the same.

The biting however is my biggest concern. I do realize he bites a lot when he become tired or overworked (playing a lot). I hope I can get thru this stage, and today we are staring our first training session. But I absolutely love him to death already.

Cute Name NEW
by: Anonymous

Hi Cindy, As I am an avid rider and Rottie lover, I love the name you chose for your new baby!! I recently gave my husband our second Rottie for Father's Day (Adelvina-"Ade" [Enobled by Victory]). It is GREAT that you are getting your first Rottie into training classes. As I mentioned, this is our second. We got our first and didn't know a whole lot about the breed, and unknowingly picked the alpha male of the litter. He grew to be 160 lb pure puppy (patched a few holes in the wall from hit butt sliding across the floor and him not being able to stop before he hit the wall). I have had several dogs in my life that I had no problem with, but my Beau was my first challenge. The best piece of advise I can give you, I think, is being educated (this is an excellent website that I wish had been available when I had Beau) and knowing that your breed is a confident breed, it is important that you are vigilant in your confidence as well. He can't feel confident if you aren't...just my few cents. Thanks!!!

Biting NEW
by: Anonymous

Our Jill bit everything, so I start to buy broom handles and cut them about 12in pieces. Not more than a week and those were bit to pieces. Also potty training was a bit difficult, cuz she seemed to do it in house only when didnt get something or was left alone.

She stop biting soon after permanent teeth came and I never let her bite anyone else but me and stick/toy.
