Default Paws-on dominance

I've read that if a dog/puppy puts their paw on you, it's a show of dominance. I'm not sure if this is the case. I have one Aussie that will often loop a paw over my wrist as I'm petting him. It seems close to holding hands would be for humans. Sometimes he'll sit straight up from butt to head and loop both paws around my scratching hand's wrist. This behavior is really cute and he doesn't behave aggressively towards me or others, so I'm wondering if this is actually a sign of dominance. Any advice?
