This introductory module presents an overview of my Wolf Methodology. It is very important to watch this video first before viewing the other videos in the series. This will allow to you have a better understanding of my approach and enjoy better, faster and long-lasting results with your dog.
Always remember: a dog is a domesticated wolf. This means there are numerous similarities between how you communicate with your dog and how wolves interact with each other. It was previously thought that wolves fight within a pack to gain dominance and that the winner is the “alpha” wolf. However, today we now know that most wolf packs consist of a pair of adults called “parents” or “breeders” – not “alphas” – and their offspring.
What’s more, 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.
Key fact: wolves communicate with each other in a nonviolent manner. Other than the occasional dispute over leadership, they do not demonstrate any physical aggression. Similarly, my dog training program is completely nonviolent.
