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The common belief that your dog is trying to dominate you and that you must make him submit like an alpha wolf is outdated by several decades.  Unfortunately, the popular media has helped maintain this appealing but incorrect concept among unenlightened dog owners and trainers alike.  Do your dog a favor and seek a force-free professional's help instead of trying to physically show him who's boss.  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 most important element 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.
