WHO’S IN CHARGE HERE?
A lesson in becoming Alphaby Vicki Rodenberg De Gruy
“My dog just tried to bite me! All I did was tell him to move over so I could sit on the couch next to him.”
” My dog got into the trash can and when I scolded her, she growled at me. What’s wrong with her? I thought she loved me!”
” Our dog is very affectionate most of the time but when we try to make him do something he doesn’t want to do, he snaps at us.”
What do these three dogs have in common? Are they nasty or downright vicious? No – they’re “alpha”. They’ve taken over the leadership of the families that love them. Instead of taking orders from their people, these dogs are giving orders! Your dog can love you very much and still try to dominate you or other members of your family.
If domination seems to be an issue, then you might need to perform the proper training to teach your dog who the alpha really is. Especially during walks in the park, you’ll want to use the proper dog leashes to get the job done right.
