I have three dogs in my home. I have a three year old doxin. a 10 month old rottweiler and a 8 week old rottweiler. Lately my 10 month old rott has been growling at me under her breath whenever I touch or pet her then last night she laid down beside me (on her pillow) I reached over to pet her head and she growled and bit me. This is the second time she has done that. The first time was when I touched her as she was sleeping (on her pillow) she woke up growled and came at me with teeth show and snaped at me. She also does this when the 8 week old rott tries to play with her and she is on her pillow she snaps at the little rott as well. I fear for my life and my other animals. What am I doing wrong I have tried all of the "dog whispers tips" She will even growl at me when she comes to me to pet her as I am petting her she is growling. Will I have to but her down? How do I stop her from attacking me. I am not sure what I am doing to her? Please help I have no where else to turn no one in my small town can or will help.
Hi! I am a German Shepherd breeder. I don't know how much help I can be. You would probably get more help from someone that breeds rots and knows them very well. Have you put your 10 m. old rot through obediance training? From shows I have seen on them they need a strong diciplined pack leader[thats you], because they are strong willed, hard headed, and very smart. He could be protecting his bed from you, the baby puppy, and anything and everything in general. I have one of my adult dogs that growls when I pet her if any of my other dogs are close to us as a warning that she is protecting me. I don't know if any of this applies to you just trying to help. If you message me I can try to send a link to you of a website that might have more info for you.
