Rottweiler Puppy Obedience Training
rottweiler puppy in training I am now training Rottweiler puppies for Roberta, of Barclay Farms Rottweilers ( This Puppy Obedience Training includes Sit, Down, Heel, and Here. Additional commands I will start the puppy on include Kennel, Leave It/No, and, if necessary, Off (get off the furniture, or when jumping up on people, which I do not allow).

In addition to the puppy obedience training they receive, puppies who live in my home with me are crate trained and begin house breaking. I also introduce them to the kitties, so they should be cat-friendly when they arrive in their new home. I have noticed that my own Rottweiler puppies, who were introduced to cats early in life, tend not to be cat aggressive later in life.

When training is complete, I will go over the commands and hand signals with you so you and your new Rottweiler puppy are on the same page.

Price for Puppy Obedience Training, which includes board, is $400. This training fee must be paid in advance. Training takes approximately 3 weeks, depending on the age of the puppy.

Training Videos
These are videos of the puppies I have trained for Barclay Farms Rottweilers in the past month (July/August 2010).

rottweiler puppy in training

Video 1: K-Haus, an 11 week old Rottweiler puppy, was trained for Sit, Down, Heel, Here, Kennel, Leave It/No.
Training time: 3 weeks (from 8-11 weeks of age)
Although he knew everything in 2 weeks, it was nice to have him a little longer so the commands would be more concrete. He responded very well both on and off lead, as you can see in the video.

Video 2: Rachael, a 15 wk old Rottweiler puppy, was trained for Sit, Down, Heel, Come/Here, and also picked up on In (go in the house), Leave It/No.
Training Time: 2 weeks (from age 13-15 wks)
Actual time to learn the commands: 7 days
Rachel settled right in to her training and was an eager student. Yea Rachael!

Nanette, a 20 week old Rottweiler puppy, showing her obedience skills.Video 3: Nanette, a 5 month old Rottweiler puppy, is trained for sit, down, heel, here, kennel, out (drop it/leave it), in (when I open the door to come in the house), come on/let's go (heeling loose lead, or what I call a "satellite" - she's within the 6' leash of you, not pulling).

We are currently working on stay and off. She doesn't jump up on us, so I only need to use the off command on occasion.

She is also potty trained and has no accidents in her crate, and she loves the cats.
Training Time: 4 weeks (from age 16-20 weeks)

As a final note, let me say that space is limited so that each puppy receives proper attention. If you are planning to get a puppy from Barclay Farms and would like him/her to begin training asap, please contact me soon to make arrangements!

Future Rottweiler Puppies from MacKay Kennels

To date, we are quite pleased with the results from the 2008 breeding of Destiny (Always MacKay V Madden) and Serbian import Bruno (V2 Bruno Black Iron Rott, R-CAC PRSCG HD/ED FREE).

Destiny is the Grand-daughter of Am Int CH Kostlich Maverick Von Ursa, and Bruno is the Son of 2001 World CH Bronko Od Dragicevica.

The earliest we will have puppies from Danica and Siren, our puppies from this breeding, will be spring 2011. Danica is now set to go to live with a friend of mine, who owns her brother Storm, so she can begin showing her later this month (August 2010). Danica will not be having puppies until after she is shown.

We Have All-American Rottweilers: American Born, American Bred!

I know there are a lot of Rottweiler breeders who advertise their rotties as German, but unless you import a Rottweiler from Germany, it's not a German Rottweiler!

I'm sure I'll catch a little flack for posting that statement, but there seems to be a lot of confusion on the difference between German and American Rottweilers. When it comes right down to it, dogs are like humans: If you're born in the USA, you're an American. If you're born in Germany, you're German.
