This is really fascinating. I'm reading it now.

RE: Dogs, all dogs
When I have my dog on a leash, she walks a step or two ahead of me always looking out of the corner of her eye so see what I'm going to do. When she's off lead, she walks by my side and if she does stray, it's only to go to the bathroom or some other harmless activity. What does this say about me?

This seems too much of a rhetorical question to answer. You know what it means! Big Grin

Some men and women have a horrible tendency to treat dogs like babies or toddlers. Then bring their "babies" out into the real world and see these cuddly toys turn into some sort of animal. (Don't wanna give the whole story away but it acts like a dog)

Then, blaming it on others. A dog just wants a strong leader who provides.

Yeah, I saw the answer when I was typing it out. I just felt it was in bad taste to answer my own question.

Great website!

Swap 'dog' or 'canine' with 'women' or 'female' and you have a pretty hardcore and biblical way of treating chicks.

Quote:Because dogs are so closely bonded with the human species, most humans forget, or never even think about, their natural instincts. Some even take it as far as seeing those who do speak dog to the dog as cruel. Dogs have a natural instinct to want structure, rules and boundaries. They want to know where they stand among their pack and believe it or not, they want to know the rules and they need consistency with those rules. There are those who believe it is cruel to use natural dogmanship with a dog, but it is actually more cruel to assume your dog is human, overlooking its natural wants and needs. All dog behavior issues stem from humans who are not practicing natural dogmanship: not providing what the dog needs in its life, from exercise, both mental and physical, to the leadership it craves. What something means to a human may mean the total opposite to a dog. Dogs all around the world receive mixed signals from humans. Any dog that misbehaves is missing something in its life. A dog's temperament is a direct result of the owner’s ability to understand him and give him what he instinctually needs as a canine animal. There are no bad dogs...just uneducated owners. And yes, you can teach an old dog new tricks. It's NEVER too late to turn a dog’s behavior around.

Quote:These examples are just the tip of the iceberg. Humans misread their dogs on a daily basis and on a wide scale of issues. I can't even imagine what it is like for a dog to be constantly misread and how confusing it must be for them. Most dogs do not wish to be the leaders, do not wish to run the show. They only wish to be secure with their pack and clearly know their status. However, they will take over when they do not see the humans as stronger than themselves. We humans would do our dogs a huge favor by trying to better understand them rather than assuming they are just like us.

Quote:Dogs need a dominant, alpha leader; a being who is calm and very strong-minded. Dogs instinctually crave this leadership and guidance. Size means nothing. It is all about energy, all about how the being is feeling inside. Unstable humans make unstable dogs. A human who lacks confidence will not have a dog who listens to their commands.

If you find yourself correcting your dog with anger, you are not being a good pack leader. Your dog should never fear you. You are looking for respect from your dog, not fear. When a dog respects you it will happily want to follow you. One cannot accomplish this respect using fear and aggression.
