Could be the dog is just bored as well, doesn't know what to be doing with itself. Rotties are strong intelligent working dogs - maybe find something for the dog to do... Could be something as simple as a backpack on a walk to carry stuff for you - but find something.

You don't need to be the dominant master over a dog, try more of a team attitude.

You have kids? Even better. Don't think of it as being dominant over the dog - yes there has to be mutual respect - but think of it as being a team with the dog.

Try something simple - have a sled or a wagon? Get a harness and see if she'll pull the kids around. Just bear in mind that she's a young dog and you don't want her pulling massive weights. Backpack for the dog when you're out for a walk - let her carry water bottles and such - give her a sense of purpose within your family - your team.

A good exercise routine that gives her both physical and mental stimulation will work wonders.
