Think of the pack leader as the decision maker - where you should go on the walk, how to behave in different situations and how to respond to all the strange things that are out there.
When you understand how dogs packs work you soon realize the importance, that pack leader makes all the decisions. If you leave it up to your dog then there a big chance that your dog is going to get something?s very wrong and make a mistake!
So how do you become the pack leader?
All dogs worldwide, regardless of breed use the same ways to check to establish the pack leader.
The best way to learn about how to put it into practice is to watch it being done on video as I have done through one of the video based web sites. The important areas to take control in are the following:
The pack leader will be in total calm control when your dog barks and alerts you to danger. This includes anything that your dog may perceive as dangerous and barks at in and around the property.
On the walk your dog should not pull you at a single stage, even the beginning!
Learning to walk your dog properly can only really be learnt through video as I have found out!
If you are the pack leader then your dog should be able to relax and switch off completely inside the house. If your dog is always switched on most of the time and can?t relax then that is your dog on pack leader duty!
Getting your dog to switch off is directly connected to how you meet and greet your dog after your return home. You need to watch it on video it is so subtle but it is the difference between being the pack leader or the follower.
Lastly, feeding your dog correctly will establish who is the pack leader and there is much more to it than asking your dog to sit! Also if you have a dog that is ?not food motivated? then you may be in for a surprise!
There is one site that shows you ? using video ? exactly how to become the pack leader and how crucial it is to changing any behavioral issue.
