Customer Question

I have a 2 year old Rottweiler and she is wary of certain people that want to pay her. She will wait until they walk away and bark. She can be a little dominant when playing with other dogs as well. Otherwise very well behaved.
Also is it best when out and not in a social situation to not allow her to look at other dogs or just correct her if she looks intensely ?
Many thanks

Hi Jacustomer,

My name is ***** ***** I’ve been involved professionally with dogs in the health and behavioral fields for over 18 years. It will be my pleasure to work with you today.

In order to supply you with an informed answer, it is necessary for me to collect some additional information from you. When I receive your response or reply, it will likely take me between 30-45 minutes to type up my reply if I am still online when I receive notice that you replied. I hope you can be patient.

Are you saying she is wary when some people go to PET her?

Are these people leaning over her to pet her?

Are they male or female?

How can you tell she is wary of them?

Does she lunge at them or just bark?

Does she ever lunge at other dogs on the leash?
