Finally able to sit down and read the Sept/Oct issue of Bark! Don't usually do this, but had to comment on the Pack of Four article as a small part really struck home when the author spoke about using the alpha roll. I wish more people would stop and think about her statement - "Did she really need to be convinced that I was in charge? I was ten times her size; I had language, consciousness, and history behind me...I was playing master sergeant when there was no need for any standing army". I have a hard time with the needing to show dominance train of thought to most animals when the latter is true. Granted, some may have tougher personalities/traits that need to be approached in a different manner, but does the alpha method really work in most domestic pet situations? On a side note, her walks in the woods sound wonderful - that's where my dog and I try to head as often as possible. Does both of us good.
