Default Things I never knew!

Apparently my dog has SA because she's dominant over me.



Or that's what the highly respected and regarded retriever trainer said in his mini-seminar tonight...

Well a few alpha rolls should clear that right up, then. Or maybe ear pinches.

He wasn't advocating for alpha rolls. Now THAT is just nonsense! I just need to.. hit the ground a lot with my "heeling stick" and be big and intimidating and all. Ya know, make her scared of me and submissive. Then she'll be just fine!

Oh, and our relationship will be better for it, too!

Yup, because that's what I did.

Oh, and if your male dog looks you in the eye, and THEN lifts his leg to pee, you are in so much trouble. He is going to break every time at the next test/trial.

If he makes eye contact with you before peeing, he'd better squat and pee like a girl!

Or you aren't doing your job correctly.

Lauren was also there, I'm sure she'll have some great ones to share, too!

Maybe you should reverse that to teach him your dominance...look him in the eye and lift your leg. Only makes sense!

Uh yeah, if you ever plan on breeding your dog, make sure you aren't in the room. That is a DIRECT VIOLATION OF YOUR DOMINANCE!!!

And you'll know you are on the right path to making them submissive if they transfer from lifting their leg to peeing like a girl.

ALSO, you know when you come home and your dog is all happy to see you? Yeah, NOT! It's actually re-establishing your relationship heirarchy, so when you act happy back, he views you are a PLAYFRIEND and NOT a leader. Obviously. You all suck at training.

I'm sure I'll remember more in the morning.

And we were at the training because Megan knew someone who was training there. The mini-seminar was just...a bonus. Or something.

Additionally, dogs should never go to dog parks because it is such a confusing place to be (regarding heirarchy) and they would be much happier staying home in their own pack.
