Of all the questions people ask, “How to become the pack leader” is the most important! This is by far the most important question of how to convince your dog that you are in charge. Think of the pack leader as a decision maker: where to go for a walk, how to behave in different situations, and how to react to all the weird things out there.
Once you understand how dog packs work, you quickly realize how important the pack leader makes all decisions. If you leave the care to your dog, there is a good chance your dog will make a mistake and make a mistake.
To understand how to become a pack leader, you must first realize that the following means nothing to a dog….
Which car you drive, the size of your house, the money you make or the fact that you speak languages! Your dog will be happy to exchange all of this for a good snack!
Asking your dog to sit down before dinner is way below what you need to accomplish to become a pack leader, and going through doors is only necessary when your dog is on a leash.
After all, your dog’s dominance is definitely not the way to become the leader of the pack. In fact, when you teach your dog that physical strength is important, it can strike back at you later. While you can force your dog to submit, it will not convince your dog’s mind that you are worthy of the post and that he should become the leader of the pack, just that he is a bit of a bully.
So how do you become the leader of the peloton? All dogs around the world, regardless of breed, use the same forms of verification to determine the leader of the pack. The best way to learn how to put it into practice is to see how it goes on video like I did on one of the video based websites. Important areas to consider are:
The pack leader has full control over the calm when his dog barks and warns him of danger. This includes anything that your dog finds dangerous and barks in and around the property.
When walking, your dog shouldn’t pull you with one step, not even at the beginning! As I found out, the only way to really learn good dog walking is through video!
If you are the pack leader, your dog should be able to relax in the house and completely switch off. If your dog is out and about most of the time and can’t relax, then your dog should be the pack leader!
Getting your dog to extinguish it is directly related to how you meet and greet your dog after he returns home. You have to see it on video, it’s very subtle, but that’s the difference between being the leader of the peloton or the henchman.
After all, proper feeding your dog will determine who the leader of the pack is, and there’s a lot more to ask him to sit down. Even if you have a dog that is “not food motivated” you may be surprised!
There is a website that will show you via video how to become the leader of the pack and the importance of changing behavior problems.
