sorry to hear bout your cat..
rotties have a bad reputation but they aren't bad.the owners are partly to blame if they bite people. people won't accept they are wrong it's easier to blame it on the dog.(bad habit)
Yes, I agree. I must be a good Rottweiler teacher. I used to train service dogs and I give my dogs a very good start. Most people seem to think with Rottweiler's you need to use harsh training tactics but nothing could be further from the truth. I use positive training methods and the dogs respect me and others because of it.
I have also spoke to other long time Rottweiler owners that have said "you shouldn't expect your dogs to be so soft" but in todays law suit happy world, that is exactly what I expect from my dogs. My 7 year old nephew was able to take a hot dog out of my dogs mouth when it dropped on the floor and the dog got it. Soft? Yup, but also safe.
Thanks for the condolences for my cat. She is missed in this house. Maybe someday, I will have another cat but the time is not right just yet.
