    But they are not what the domestic dog descended from.

    You are the pack leader your dog is a follower.

    ie walking a dog, should never walk in front of you their withers should be at your side.
    Should sit, heal walk when told.

    Feeding a dog should be after you've had your meal, should sit and wait when bowl put down until it's told to approach food.

    Jumping/sleeping on your bed gives them hierarchy leadership. not what you want.

    All part of being a follower and having boundaries/limitations.

    Alpha training is a certain way to cause a dogs to turn.

    Thanks seco. I wonder how many dog keepers don't do enough basic research and thus potentially create problems.

    Most I see over the woods etc are lacking training and control.
    Their dogs are loopy and the owner has no control and then the raised voices start and i just laugh at them.
    We get people come to us and we turn them away due to the lack of basic control they have over their dog.
    We advise start with basic control then come back.

    We owned a yorkshire terrier and he could be vicious, loved to attack the neighbours german shepherd. Caught himhanging off his neck on a couple of occasions. Worked in a few houses where little white terriers (cant think of the make and model :LOL: ) are vicious little blighters, always biting your ankles. Its in the genes!

    Dont feel embarassed if biten by a German water dog or French retriver or gun dog.
    Dont under estimate the poodle, they can be nasty barstewards.

    I know, but much more manly to admit being bitten by a proper nasty terrier

    I have found Staffs. to be pussies . Can't work out why the big toughy would want one :confused: I wouldn't own one cause it would spoil my image.
