You do not need to be dominant or the alpha to have a well-mannered dog, In fact trying to control a dog through intimidation and coercion often backfires, making a dog fearful or depressed and sometimes aggressive. The idea that dogs are like wolves and if left to their own devices will try to dominate us has been soundly refuted by science, yet this silly myth continues to be perpetuated by some. Remember the old adage 'You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar? Well it applies to dogs as well as humans. Kindness and rewards work far better than confrontation and punishment.
