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wants to dominate you so you must be like an alpha wolf and make him submit is outdated by several decades.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.
