So I have moved areas and become part of a face book group for the local dog park.

There are quite a few members who post, asking how do I get my puppy not to be the alpha over the older dogs and blah blah blah she needs to know she is at the bottom.

I REALLY did not realize how many people bought into that BS.

*read sarcasm here* I didnt realize so many people bought into the anti-alpha, postive only BS.

its called an opinion, people having an opinion different from yours doesnt make it BS. :rolleyes:
What training really comes down to when choosing methods is what resources do you have present. Like when working with a DA dog, do you have another dog that is completely calm that can help you work within threshold or are you just taking the dog out and hoping to see dogs while you're out?
lol too true! who are all these people that have a bunch of random calm dogs or 10+ random people to help them train their dog? not me, thats for sure, I cant even find one single person to help me out with Gem's Rally training, last person I asked to help me, set her training back months, because apperently slapping her and screaming BOO in her face was much more fun then petting her.
