Rottweiler is one of America’s most dangerous dog breeds. Statistics show how dangerous a dog of this breed can be. It is a strong breed having well-grown guarding and herding instincts. The strength of a Rottweiler makes the dog dangerous when it is untrained, abused or neglected. As per the American Kennel Club, a Rottweiler loves its owner, but it has a strong wish to protect its territory, and does not welcome any stranger unless correctly introduced. It should be mixed socially with others and trained to follow fundamental control commands.
It is unfortunate that many individuals attempt to have it as a domestic pet with no due regard to its nature or habits. Doing it may invite a Rottweiler bite suit into your life. Rottweiler views weaker and tinier animals as its prey, so it usually mistakes other pets or even kids for its ‘food’. If this happens, and the animal reacts instinctively, then that pet or kid could be in serious trouble.
The dog attacks generally result from some of the following factors.
- The owner training it to attack
- He or she training the dog without knowing how to do it
- Backyard breeding and puppy farms
- The owner not teaching their kid the proper way to treat the animal
- Pack mentality
Shared below are the findings of a report from the turn of the 21st century.
- Pitt bulls were part of around one-third of deaths associated with dog bites between 1981 and 1992.
- Rottweilers accounted for around half of these deaths between 1993 and 1996.
- Both dogs contributed to 67% of deaths in America from 1997 to 1998.
The Things You Must When Any Dog Attacks You
Lawyers say that it is possible to prevent a dog’s attack by reacting properly to the situation. Here are some general rules to follow when you encounter the situation.
- Avoid running away. Doing it has shown to provoke the annoyed animal. Remember, you may not run faster than it.
- Avoid making eye-to-eye contact with any aggressive dog.
- As impractical as this may sound, never scream.
- Never move ahead in the event of it biting you. Doing it may invite an unwanted struggle. Instead, try gagging the dog by putting a stick into its throat.
- Maintain the position similar to a fetal. In most cases, doing this will make the animal go back.
