Re: Dog training
great answer dogbreath. words from a pro. like cooking shows i like watching thos dog reality shows, dog borstal etc (do you get them in the US?). i like the psychology of the pack idea and how happy the dog normally seems once it understands its place in the pack (family). i think half the time its not that the dog feels like the alpha dog in the family but rather that the dog is completely confused as to where it fits into the scheme of things. half the time consistency is the trainer's best tool. like parenting... the fastest way to mess up a child is to change styles randomly all the time and accept a behaviour today that was heavily punished yesterday. sometimes its good to look at a dog like they were a foreign child who willnever understand english but will soon respond to key words and key actions.
