When a dog "loses it", do you think that it too is just returning to some natural instinct?


A dog in it's natural world is a relaxed, stress free layed back animal until brought into the human world.


A dog in its natural world is a wolf.
There are other breeds of canine other than a wolf


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.

What i'm refering to is it will have it's place in the groups packing order.
When brought into our lifes it won't because people don't enforce it.
Is that the key to success then, from you experience and knowledge? That the dog has to have a well defined role within the (human) family that replaces a pack?


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 icon_lol.gif ) are vicious little blighters, always biting your ankles. Its in the genes!

Now, a puffy poodle or such like. You don't hear about them having a go very often - or are people too embarassed to say if they do get bit by one


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
