Wolves are the animals whose interactions mostly closely resemble those of humans. However, instead of a family, they live in pack in which the alpha wolf (the father) is the unquestioned leader. Just like a family of siblings wolves in the pack enjoy a harmonious existence, so too can your dog in your family setting.
A dog is a domesticated wolf, which means there are many parallels between how you are able to communicate with your dog and how wolves interact with each other. While it was previously believed that wolves fight within a pack to gain dominance and that the winner is the “alpha” wolf, today we understand that most wolf packs consist of a pair of adults called “parents” or “breeders” – not “alphas” – and their offspring. A pack usually consists of seven to eight members led by the alpha wolf (the father), who will be the one that leads the group (family). They all look to the alpha wolf to bring them where there is plenty of water, food to hunt, shelter and, above all, to keep the pack safe from predators.
Similarly, my dog training program is completely nonviolent. By applying wolf pack dynamics to dog behaviour, I have created a series of online dog training courses that will help you:
My virtual dog training classes will work for puppies, young dogs and all breeds from the gentle poodle to the more stubborn Doberman. It’s not true that you can’t teach an old dog a new trick. You just need a little bit more patience, but any misbehavior can be corrected.
All dogs want to please their owner and move up in the pecking order. Remember: your family is his pack and, in a family of four, Fido needs to remain at number five and not “move up the ranks,” regardless of the age of any family members. In other words, you want to keep him where he is supposed to be.
My dog training program is different than your typical basic training as I show you how to become the alpha figure and enjoy a strong, healthy connection with your four-legged friend. In no time, your pet’s behaviour will improve and your guests will look forward to having fun with your animal.
