We have so many threads running about dominance at the moment, but what does it actually mean to you? I think the word is taken out of context and people have their own interpretation of it. To me it means: * Being the pack leader/boss 100% of the time * Implementing and maintaining consistant rules and boundries * Constantly reinforcing my status by way of training sessions, walks and other daily rituals, such as gesture eating. * Communicating to my dogs that I am the leader and as such I will take care of them. I look forward to your replies. PS. This is NOT a Cesar thread, so please can we not mention him!
