Is Dominance Training An Unnecessary Dog Training Technique Today?
There is a lot of disagreement on whether dominance dog training is ethical. Mainly you must show your dog that you are the alpha and the dog must essentially be subservient to you in every way. It is believed by some experts that all dogs want to be the alpha in any relationship whether it is with other dogs or dog and pet owner. They believe you may need to use punishment on the dog if you want to succeed in being the alpha over the dog. Many also believe this dominant trait in dogs has evolved out of their evolution and it is not necessary to punish the dog or engage in dominant dog training.
