Who is Alpha, You or Your Dog?

My dog is misbehaving because he is dominant.

 I need to show him that I am alpha.


The common belief that your dog wants to dominate you so you must be like an alpha wolf and make him submit is outdated by several decades.  Unfortunately, the popular media has helped maintain this seductive yet risky training philosophy among dog enthusiasts who are resistant to change.  Do your dog a favor and seek a credentialed force-free professional's help who is up to date on the science of animal training.  Please read the Association of Professional Dog Trainers' Position Statement on Dominance and Dog Training.

Using the wrong technique can damage your dog's trust in you no matter how much you love him.  As the name of my business implies, trust is the glue of a good relationship.  Your dog will be happiest knowing that he can depend on you to provide fair guidance in a benevolent and non-threatening manner.
