    1. The vulva, tail, breast and other parts of Rottweiler female dogs should be washed and dried with warm water; replace the contaminated mattress and pay attention to heat preservation.
    2. Rottweiler’s mother dog becomes fierce after giving birth because of the protection of her puppies. The newly born mother dog should be kept quiet for 8-24 hours. Strangers should not approach her, so as to avoid the harassment of the mother dog, resulting in the nervousness of the mother dog and the consequences of biting or swallowing her puppies.
    3. Generally speaking, the newly born Rottweiler mother dog does not eat. It can be fed with some glucose water first, and then some eggs and goat milk after 5-6 hours, until it is formally fed 24 hours later. At this time, it’s best to feed some food with good palatability and easy digestion. In the first few days, we fed the congee like feed with rich nutrition, such as milk, eggs, meat congee, etc., with a small amount of more meals, and gradually fed the dry feed a week later.
    4. Pay attention to the breastfeeding situation of Rottweiler female. If the puppies are not breastfed, find out whether they are short of milk or sick, and take corresponding measures in time. In order to increase lactation, the female dogs with low lactation can be fed milk or pig’s hoof soup, fish soup and pig’s lung soup.
    5. Some of them are not willing to take care of their puppies because of their poor motherhood. In this case, they must be severely reprimanded and forced to feed their puppies. For a Rottweiler female dog who doesn’t care about her puppies, it is also possible to deliberately catch a pup and make it scream, which may awaken her maternal instinct. In addition, the puppies are not able to move properly at this time, so they should be prevented from squeezing the puppies at any time. If you hear the short shriek of the puppies, you should immediately go to check and take out the squeezed puppies in time.
    6. Do a good job of freezing and keeping warm in winter. It can be used for bedding grass, bedding materials, and cold proof curtain for Rottweiler mother dog at the door of dog kennel. If the temperature of the kennel is too low, it can also be padded with infrared ray, indicating that the temperature is too high. According to this, the appropriate temperature required by the Rottweiler can be adjusted. In order to stimulate the excretion of the puppies, the female must lick the puppies’ buttocks with the tongue. If the female does not lick, it is necessary to spread cream near the anus of the puppies to induce the Rottweiler to lick.
