“Being the Pack Leader” is Old-Fashioned BUNK
If a dog trainer tells you that your problems with your dog are due to your not being a pack leader, that person has just shown that:
1. They haven’t paid any attention to the research about wolves and dogs.
2. They don’t know much about how animals learn.
3. They probably don’t have any credentials to speak of.
4. They are hanging on to a “sticky” idea just because it sounds right and is an easy sell.
But in any case, they are incorrect. You need to know why, so their ideas don’t hurt your dog.
