    However they are territorial, will guard your property. And sometimes but this is rare they take a disliking to someone and no way can they get on your property

    I never had a problem with any of them with my kids when they were small. In fact my daughter when she was 2 used to try and ride our landlords dog as they lived above us. My landlord caught Ally doing this and laughed.
    The only thing around kids is the boisterous of the Rotti as a bigger pup until age 2 or 3. Will knock them over if small enough. Biting or nipping as you clothes. As pups they do this as you walk. Best to use a firm voice with that early.

    But if you want loyalty, treat your Rotti well and they will be that and more.

    I love them too

    Yes, I will not be abusing her :S

    Welcome ShelbyTeacup

    I love that your Teacup is a Rotti - what a sense of humour her breeders have. I'm sure they will be very willing to help with any breed specific things you need to know like what to feed and how much to exercise (pays to be gentle with the big breed dogs especially when they're puppies).

    They're the biggest sooks out. With people they know.

    I expect Prinzess means well and being associated with the security industry has seen bad things happen to the dogs in that industry.

    This website has loads of tips on training puppies and dogs.
    Digital Dog Training Textbook | Dog Star Daily

    You can also look up kikopup on Youtube - I really like the way she trains.
    Clicker Dog Training - YouTube

    And you can do google site searches on this website for stuff about toilet training and how to discourage puppy biting...
    eg
    puppy biting site:dogforum.com.au
    into google...

    general rule of thumb for puppies - do not encourage them to do anything that you would not have a big dog do. Eg jumping, biting, sleeping on the bed... (your choice of things but you have to imagine what it would be like when a big dog does it)

    and general rule of walks - 5 minutes per month of age - but check with the breeder. I know one rotti owner who would not walk her dog more than 10 minutes at a time at 4 months old on breeder's advice. Don't forget to ask how much rest in between. And trick training will tire a puppy out too, without stressing the growing body (depending what trick you choose).

    So cute, looking forward to more photos and stories.

    Ahh, ok i understand the comments, thank you for the clarity.

    I totally get the larger breed, and the requirement of soft play. Ill be honest that I am a little nervous about how it will all go, especially with my little guys.


    We start social training soon, and one of my close friends actually has her brother, so they will spend lots of time together and "play dates"

    There is no way on earth she will be in our bed. I already have 2 kids in there everynight lol. No chance of a dog too!
    But, I am a softie, and she is on her dog bed next to our bed x I couldnt handle her crying. I dont let my kids cry to sleep, wont let her either.

    I just want to make sure that she is friendly to most that visit our house.

    Oskar's mum

    Sometimes the answer is a bigger bed...

    or you can be like me - and sleep like an operating concrete mixer. Frosty prefers her own bed to that.

    Honestly, co sleeping with the kids is enough. And it just wont happen. I dont think she will be kept out at night though, so indoors to sleep.
