Some vets know the medical parts of animal care, but never do have a good grasp of the every day parts. Like training and feeding . . .

I second that notion! The vet who owned the clinic I worked at was horrible. I hated his advice on training, feeding and not to mention how he man-handled all the patients to show how dominant he was. He was absolutley horrible. He is one of the reasons I quit and don't trust vets!!!

Keep in mind that puppies are incapable of claiming dominance anyway. Their brains simply aren't wired for it yet. They can get bossy and clingy, but they can't grab and hold a dominant position until they're around a year(?), maybe 9 or 10 months. So rolling a puppy is just going to frighten and confuse it.

I think it's getting downright stupid how little we can trust a vet, or a people doctor for that matter. It's so important to know your facts so you can catch the b.s. that comes your way.

no their not gay their working out who is the dominent end of the relationship. If you have ever seen a litter of puppies there is alot of mounting going on to show who is dominent. And as adult dogs they will do the same thing kinda a reminder like "hey don't forget im better then you so don't get out of line".

ALso your other dog sniffing them is fine dogs will be dogs

Don't grab the paws. You can either put the dog on its back or grab it by the muzzle.

Someone like Pits with all those years of experience is different than a relatively new dog owner, Lea. Remember, she's been training dogs pretty much since she could walk. You have to be very self-assured and calm to do that sort of thing, as well as knowing the dog you're dealing with very, very well

I don't know if anyone said this (somebody probably has) but it's too show who's the "man", a show of dominance. My pup tried to do that to me, I couldn't help laughing, lol. A lot of animals have unique ways to show dominance
