I don't want to repeat anything that's been said, but I do want to suggest reading "The Other End of the Leash" by Patricia McConnell. There is lots of info about dominance issues, training, etc., that makes a lot of sense and works. Good luck with your new pup! 

P.S.-I am a wanna be Rottie owner myself...one day... ;D

I have had rotties all my life and had male and female, I prefer the male they are more needy, females seem to be more independant but with a rotti from the day you get them they must listen to you and know you are the boss,
