Now here is one person worth watching: The more I read and watch about dog training the more convinced I become that it is more dog OWNER training. I need to start a discussion about this alpha dog stuff that keeps popping up all over. What are your views on this alpha dog myth? Does it really make a difference in a dogs behaviour if you eat your food first? All these alpha dog theory enthusiasts generalise between the gender of the dogs. I haven't come across anyone mentioning that there is a difference between the female and the male so far.
