Control of Canine Dominance Behavior: Approach — Part A

Dominant dogs require special training, but so do their owners. Too often, an exasperated dog owner will yell or lash out in sheer frustration when the dog pushes the owner beyond bearable limits. Or the overwhelmed Owner will treat the dog as Helen Keller’s parents treated her, turning her into “an animal” until Annie appeared on the scene. In the words of Captain Keller to Annie Sullivan: “…Give him anything he wants…” Backfire!

So let’s start with you, the dog’s owner. Understand that your own attitude and timing are critical to a successful outcome.

One of the most important things to remember when working with a dominant dog is Keep your humor. Yelling is counterproductive and only drives away a difficult animal. Yelling intensifies the problem. You can’t fight fire with fire.

Instead, remember that: “Iron sharpens iron.”

Focus. It’s up to you to be consistent, firm and consistent, and make sure you’re calm as you begin your daily work with your dog. This approach is not incompatible with love, because those who love their children and dogs will teach, guide and discipline them with a constant, fair and firm hand, so that they can be the best they can be. That is your goal with your dog.

Take the control. To do this, it is very important that you establish and maintain eye contact by taking authority over your Dominant Dog. While the submissive dog will look away, the dominant dog will keep looking.

Eye contact is also critical to keeping the dog’s attention and keeping it in an obedient posture. In dog parlance, the first to look away “loses” and submits. Let his eyes send the focused message of “control” and “authority.”

In addition, YOU must “claim” all the things that the dominant dog considers “his possessions”. be it toys, rugs, bones, or whatever. You must present yourself as the dominant, and all things in the house as yours. Only then do you “invite him in” and “share” these things with him.

You cannot allow the dog to claim or take possession of anything. You do not want to encourage the development of more dominant, possessive, or aggressive behaviors. In fact, aggressive dog dominance evolves naturally from an uncorrected dominance posture. Instead, it breaks the cycle.

Another key to breaking the dog’s dominance behavior: DON’T let the dog get what he wants “for free.” Make him earn it!

Earn it, don’t own it!

For example, a dominant dog should be given a brisk walk or strenuous exercise before being fed, such as a 30-minute brisk walk, followed by “cool-down” time (or he’ll get sick). He must be required to abide by the rules and to respond obediently to his leadership, so that he feels that he is “working” with “purpose” and “value.”

It’s exciting to see a previously out of control dog stand proud with a happy gleam in his eyes because he knows he has a job and limits, that he doesn’t have the burden of controlling things and that he can trust you, and that hey! has achieved something of perceived value and pleased you! The dog then enjoys obedience!

Then you have earned the right to something you want. . . not as a training or bribery tool, but removed from the actual training time. . . not as something that belongs to him, but as a gift from you. . . an expression of their pleasure and general affection. . . Y only when YOU choose to give it. . . only in YOUR time. YOU are in control. Don’t give it up!

There is an explicit dog training technique to use on a dominant dog. Contains a little known technique on YOUR FOCUS so the dog can actually SMELL AND FEEL your authority and control!

It also applies the canine communication system of “silence, submission and leadership”. . . dog whisperer behavior approach, in familiar terms. After all, for effective communication with your dog, to command and control his attention and focus in a positive and constructive way, you need to speak HIS language.

. . . And that requires YOU to have a quiet way of establishing and maintaining your OWN cool, calm, collected focus and sense of power and authority. Part B of this free article details a little-known secret, a dog training tip to help you do just that! (It’s also effective for commanding respect in the workplace.)

Give no room to the domain, and it won’t scale.

Give it an inch, and it’ll take a mile . . .
