If the puppy is cowering, you need to revise your techniques. Being "told off" implies verbal scolding. This puppy is telling you with her body language, which YOU DESCRIBED as COWERING, and behaving as tho she has BEEN BEATEN.

Please listen to your PUPPY even if you refuse to listen to us.
I think you are being very judgemental in your replies, sorry!

In no way do I indicate in anything I say that I am mistreating my dog and I resent the implication, I merely describe a behaviour that has suddenly developed in my Puppy for no apparent reason. Nothing has changed, she is still being trained the same way as she has since being young, which she responded well to!

You may know more about dogs than I do, but the one thing you don't know anything about is ME!! Hence you are not taking into account the whole picture.

I asked for a little advice, I got it, thank you, but I don't think I'll be sticking around.

As for reading, I researched dog behaviour, especially Rottweiller behaviour by a respected behaviourist, I have re-read the passages on using voice as a tool and sure enough she emphasises that to use the voice to emphasise pleasure as well as Disgust or displeasure, your tone will be used to reflect this. Yelling and Screaming will only frighten him. I have never once said that I yelled or scolded my dog.

Best wishes.

Well, I am sorry I ever took the time to reply. You're on your own. Good luck.

BTW......if this "respected behaviorist" is so wonderful and you're following what she says, then why did you ask about your cowering dog here? If it works to your satisfaction, go ahead. Keep doing what you're doing.

Actually, I wasn't referring to you.

But thanks for your help all the same.
