Perhaps, but my dog is not a wild dog and my dog knows i'm not a dog. If I chase and tackle her she is going to freak out, not think "oh this means she's the boss of me". She does what I say through training and because I look after her and make it worth her while, not because I tackle her when she wants to play.Ruby that does kind of make sense. Think, dogs out in the wild do tackle to show power over each other.
Agreed. Which is why I would never advise someone to do it over the internet... you can't have a real idea about the size/temperament of someone else's dog, so you can't tell them that they should tackle them.All dogs are not the same.
