My rottie is turning my life into a nightmare
It's me again!! my puppy is 3 mths old.. I tried almost everything with him to make him stop biting on me and pulling my clothes and tearing them.. I tried saying no, the water spray thing and the pulling loose skin on his back of the neck.. for almost 2 months now.. and I got no result !!!
everytime I correct him he bites me again after max 2 sec. I don't know if he's taking it as a game or what !! but I can't stand that anymore.. I love him but my dad and mum they wanna give him away now.... I have scars at almost every inch of my body that he can reach !!
Also I went to the vet and he was playing with a Labrador/Shepherd ( an adult dog) but when a golden came to play with him he ran away out side the clinic and was so freaking scared -the golden is still a puppy as well- does that mean that he fears dogs or what ?!!
He spends most of the time alone due to my working hours and he doesn't get to see dogs unless he is at the vet's clinic ...
Plz help me !! :(
I'm sorry to hear that you're having such a hard time with your pup, but after reading your whole question above, I think a big part of your problem is that this puppy is bored and lonely a lot of the time, and that leads to disruptive behavior such as excessive biting, fearful reactions etc.
The biting should respond to the type of corrections you're using, but it could be that he's just so excited to spend time with you that he simply can't control himself very well. I know how awful it must be to be nipped and bitten all the time, and in addition to the corrections you are using yourself I really think you need some hands-on help and strongly recommend getting your pup enrolled in a basic obedience class just as soon as you possibly can.
A trainer will be able to help you by showing you how to handle and control your pups' behavior much more easily than I can help online. Also, he needs MUCH more socialization and human interaction than he is getting right now. Puppies need to learn to feel comfortable around strange dogs, people and places, and that only comes from regular exposure to them in controlled and positive settings.
I know that you love your pup very much, and are trying hard to raise him, but if it is too much for you and you can't get the help you need, then it may be better for your puppy for you to find him a new home with someone who can spend more time with him and is familiar with big, strong-willed dogs such as the Rottweiler.
Your puppy isn't a bad dog, most likely just bored, lonely and anxious. If you have the time and patience to spend with him and help him get more exercise, training and one-on-one time with you, then there's no reason that you can't overcome this stage. However, if that's not possible you may have to consider finding him a more suitable home - for both of your sakes.
I do wish you the best of luck and hope that you can find a trainer or other qualified/experienced person to help both you and your puppy, and I only wish I could help more. Unfortunately this type of situation needs hands-on help - do try and find it. Good luck.
