Tammy here doesn't "rule the roost", but she looooooves chicken; she's trying to snag a chicken wing from the smoker.

Very cool, I assume this one is a pet and not one in-line to the smoker?

I've heard that sometimes when trainers are having a hard time establishing dominance over dogs, they will pee on them. Have them in their kennel and first thing in the morning when you urine is very strong, go right to the dog and pee on them. Pretty crazy. I can't imagine doing it myself, but I guess if there is enough of a problem, anything is possible!

Watching that dog whisperer show, he seems to thing a strong grip of their neck reminds them of a dominant dog clamping down on their neck. He says nothing to tight, just enough to show dominance.

I'm not a professional, I do have a lot of experience training dogs. Some of them developed some attitude in their 'adolescent years.' Don't alpha role, bite, pee, or make them feel threatened. If they feel threatened enough, even if they think you are tougher, they will bite.

It is really simple. Nothing In Life Is Free (NILIF). You control all the resources. the couch, the food, the ball, entry into a room (you first!), belly rubs, etc. EVERYTHING is on your terms. You would be amaized at how well this works in just a few months.

Totaly agree with you. My dog doesn't get anything with out working for it. He is a boxer, so a working dog by instinct, and is much happier when he has a job to do. Like fetching the ball or tugging the rope or just working on training exercises. Also I can't stress enough the fact that you should always enter the room first (good point to bring up proofman). I couldn't believe the difference it made in our dog when we strictly started folowing that one. It really lets them know their place in the pack. I don't think that since my son was born i have ever seen the dog try and go through the door before him, know the dog lets him climb all over him and doesn't even seem to be bothered by it.

We don't do pets. I'm always on the road.

They're not even allowed in my house. Not allergic or anything, I just don't have time for them.
