TRAINING TIDBIT "Pack Leadership?"
Chances are you've heard us say the phrase "pack leadership" more than once to you. Now, what exactly does that mean?
Do you really want me to pretend to eat out of my dog's bowl?! There are some very insignificant gestures and rituals that may seem trivial or a nuisance to us humans, but are HUGE to our furry companions. Although Fido is a distant relative to wolves, he still has primal pack instincts.
When we have clients come to us with behavioral concerns about their dog, we always address the "why". More often than not, it all comes down to how Fido views you in the pack heirarchy. Once we guide you how to change how he views your status, then we can address the behavior.
By NO means do we want you to "alpha role" your dog- that is highly inadvisable. We want Fido to happily defer to you and respect your decisions
