Getting a mother Rottweiler to take care of her puppies is important for their health and well-being as a whole. Here are some ideas for getting your Rottweiler to take care of her puppies:
First, it’s important to give your Rottweiler a safe and comfortable place to give birth. This should be a safe, warm, and quiet place with no other things going on. This will help her calm down and pay more attention to taking care of her puppies.
Next, you should keep an eye on your Rottweiler’s behavior while she is giving birth. If she seems upset or uncomfortable, it might be a good idea to get advice from a vet or a professional dog trainer.
After the puppies are born, your Rottweiler will need a lot of time to rest and recover. This will help her get her strength and energy back and get closer to her puppies.
It’s also important to give your Rottweiler plenty of food and water and take it to the vet for regular checkups. This will help her take care of herself and her puppies.
As the puppies get older, it’s important to give them lots of chances to meet new people. This will help them learn to trust and feel comfortable in new situations, and it will also help them get closer to their mother.
Also, it’s important to keep an eye on the puppies and the Rottweiler when they play together. This will help make sure the puppies are safe and the Rottweiler is taking care of them properly.
Lastly, be patient and know that not all Rottweilers will have instincts like a mother. Some may need more training or direction. Work with a professional dog trainer or behaviorist to help your Rottweiler learn the skills and confidence she needs to take care of her puppies.

Why does my Rottweiler not want to nurse her puppies?
There are many reasons why a Rottweiler mother might not want to feed her puppies. Some of the most common reasons are a lack of maternal instincts, not making enough milk, or physical problems like sore nipples or an infection. Stress and anxiety can also make a Rottweiler not want to nurse its young. If this is the first time the bitch has given birth, she might not know how to take care of her puppies or she might feel overwhelmed by the responsibility. Some Rottweilers don’t want to nurse their puppies because they were abused or hurt in the past. To get a Rottweiler to take care of her puppies, you must first figure out why she doesn’t want to and deal with that problem. If there is a physical problem, it is important to talk to a vet. If the problem is caused by stress or anxiety, giving the Rottweiler and her puppies a calm and safe place to be, as well as positive reinforcement and rewards for caring behavior, can help to get her to take care of her puppies.
How do you know if your mother Rottweiler is rejecting her puppies?

How long can newborn Rottweiler puppies go without nursing?
Newborn Rottweiler puppies should nurse every 2-3 hours, so they should not go more than 4 hours without nursing. If a puppy goes without nursing for longer than 4 hours, it may become dehydrated and may not receive enough nutrition to support its growth and development. It’s important to ensure that the mother Rottweiler is providing enough milk for her puppies and that the puppies are able to nurse effectively. If there is any indication that the puppies are not getting enough milk, it may be necessary to supplement them with formula or consider fostering with another lactating dog.

Rottweiler puppies that are less than 4 hours old shouldn’t go more than 4 hours without nursing. If they do, they could become dehydrated and underfed.
