How would you suggest getting a dog over SA?
It isn't the general outline of what you posted that we object to, because that method on how to deal with SA is well known and been developed for countless years. The first time I saw it was in Dr. N. Dodman's book, The Dog Who Loved Too Much. Dodman btw, is the head honcho at Tuff's Un and he runs the Animal Behavioural Clinic and Reseach.

What we are objecting is the calm/submissive and Alpha, which is what The Dog Whisperer promotes. Calm is great the submissive and alpha will do more harm than good for a SA dog. And please don't confuse leadership and alpha.

All those words are red flags to many of us.
